Well, Apple could make it simple to use. In regard to Apple making money on the locked in storage upgrades, they could, as I said before, use screen upgrades as their money-maker.No.
Imagine having to teach your mother/grandmother how to point some apps to local storage, some to SD storage, etc. And you can see why Apple is not likely to go that way.
Also, they make BANK on the locked in storage upgrades they sell.
Yeah, surely this year Apple will make the 32GB the base model (I hope).There are other issues with the file system and mounting the SD and unmounting. Some android makers are forgoing MicroSD too probably for cost as well as mounting confusion.
But sooner or later Apple has to stop making 8gb and 16gb models. As iOS gets larger it makes those models unusable.
So... No difference, then?And after spending 3 years at a Genius Bar I can state confidently that the average consumer wouldn't have a clue how to manage it either. Most can't even manage the internal storage.
256GB of storage for a cellphone?I'm fine with the current catalog of iPhones. I wouldn't complain if they increased base model storage and introduced a 256gb model on the high end.
And this is the exact reason why I can't see Apple getting rid of the 16gb and making 128 the most.256GB of storage for a cellphone?
I don't see that happening any time soon.
Even the 64GB that's available now sells very little compared to the other smaller storage options.
Sure's there's some people who want the option but not that many actually do purchase them.
Because it's extremely expensive... $400 with contract is a lot of money and without contract it's about $900 almost and that's a lot for people who are in tight budget and many parents won't waste money on that size just to buy for their 10 year old kids.And this is the exact reason why I can't see Apple getting rid of the 16gb and making 128 the most.
I know it may have a lot to do with price, but the 64 gb sales a whole lot slower than the 16.
For you, but at the same time you must not listen to music, take pictures or video, use apps, or anything else besides use it as just a phone.Nope, I can't imagine putting micro SD card in my iphone, it will slow the system etc. For me 16 gigs are more than enough
I don't think we'll ever see one on the iPhone, with the lack of an exposed file system, there's no functional reason to have one.The lack of a card slot is the main reason NOT to buy iPhone or Nexus.
Since you are asking what we think Apple will do, answering requires looking at Apple's point of view.If it did, that would be great. They could have the three variants of price based on screen size, as opposed to storage.
Doesn't "Not needed anyway" kind of clash with "I'm hoping a 128gb version is announced"? Do you need the extra memory, or not?Never. Not needed anyway. Hopefully with the iPhone 6, 32GB will be the smallest capacity. I'm hoping a 128GB version is announced.
