Or maybe this book is 20GB? (It is not.) Or maybe iPad requires 20GB of available space at all times? (Then “available” doesn’t mean what I think it means.) Or maybe it is yet another bug in iOS, like the one that forced me to reboot twice just to get iMessage working after updating to iOS 9.3.1 yesterday.
