    I currently have an iPhone 5C running IOS 10.2.1. General Settings says the capacity is 28.68 GB with 16.86 GB available. I really don't do anything too fancy with the phone. I keep my photos on it; just haven't learned nor felt the need to move them to off yet. And I don't use it to keep much music on. The phone does seem to be running a bit slow, probably because it is an older phone using the latest IOS update. At any rate, I now find myself considering to perhaps buying a new/newer iPhone this year. I am wondering if anyone has any basic guidelines on how much memory capacity one should consider? In the past I fear I have overestimated what my needs would be for computers. Don't want to do that, but still want to make sure I get enough. Plus, I honestly am not sure what greater capacity actually gains one in an iPhone. Speed? Programs? Storage? Thanks for any help.

    Base storage is 32GB now unless you get the iPhone SE, so you shouldn't have to worry about that.
