16 GB iPhones may soon become obsolete, claims a new report. The rumors of a 32 GB base iPhone are returning to the interwebs. For a while buyers of the iPhone have been complaining about the low storage availability on the cheapest iPhone model, which also incidentally is the most selling variant of Apple’s Smartphone.
Apple let go of its 4GB and 8GB iPhones and launched a 16GB minimum iPhone in 2009 with the iPhone 3GS. At that time the 16 GB capacity seemed overkill and the industry swayed to catch up with Apple.
Today most flagships ship with 64 GB storage, so a 32 GB minimum iPhone would make sense. However, reports in the past have claimed that Apple might simply launch with a 64 GB capacity, as a starting going all the way up to 256 GB as more expensive options.
Either way buyers of the new iPhone may not have to worry about the low space warning. At least for a little while.
