The newest iOS mobile operating system that is available to download today is about 1GB in size, but will require you to have a whopping 5GB of free space TO INSTALL.

After you can start deleting your photos, misc files, videos and music including the free U2 album that was announced at the recent Apple event to hopefully make enough space to to install the new iOS 8.
