This answer was rated:

I'm trying to download a movie but it says I don't have enough storage. The same message appears when I try to open The Game of Thrones first episode. I have a 32gb iPad with 15gb storage capacity. I have 14.9gb available

Hi and welcomed to

My name isXXXXX will assist you with your issues.

NickMacExpert :

Please try to reset your iPad first.

NickMacExpert :

HOLD the Power (on/off) button and Home (round button with white square) button for 10-12 seconds. Ignore the Turn off message and release the buttons when you see the white apple logo. Let your iPad boots.

NickMacExpert :

After reset, please test to see you can download the first episode.

NickMacExpert :

Does that work?

NickMacExpert :

Or still same error message?


Did the reset work out? Please let me know. Thanks!

Please try to shutdown your iPad. Press and hold Power button for 2-5 seconds. Swipe to Turn off your iPad. Wait 1 minute. Turn iPad back on. See if it will work.

Please go to Settings->General->Usage. What is available memory?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

It still says not enough storage


I was asking how much Memory is available. Please go to Settings->General->Usage. You should see the available memory on top.
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
I think I see the problem. I have142mb left. I have usèd 28.4gb (26.9 on tv shows)
Bingo! That is why I asked you to check for available memory. Looks like you will have to delete some files to make up space for your TV show.
