Default Question about Galaxy S3 updating.

Hey guys,
I just wanted to know one thing about Android official updating. When i update Android e.g. from ICS 4.0.4 to Jelly Bean 4.3(Jelly Bean 4.3 update for Samsung S3 GT-i9300 is about 950MB) does that lower my current storage(by current storage i mean storage that i have on ICS) permanently by those 950MB that JB comes with?
I mean if it lowers my storage like that, after a few updates i wont even have free space for anything else.
Im sorry if my english is bad, and if you didnt understand, please ask.
Thanks in advance,
Slim Shady

(1) You should post in Q&A section
(2) it's not like your old rom will stay on it, the update will overwrite old files not needed. Hence only a minor part might increase storage used, e. G. New features.
