If there was a 32GB iPhone 6s option, would you still choose 64GB?

    As the title says, would it have swerved your decision?

    Not at all. I would still choose the maximum capacity that Apple offers - as I have always done.

    32GB - iPhone 3GS
    64GB - iPhone 5
    128GB - iPhone 6+

    For me, needing the capacity is irrelevent. I buy what I want.

    I probably would have done it when I got the iP6 (not getting the 6s) but knowing now that I have a lot of videos and pictures on my phone, I would opt for the 64GB for the iP7.

    Yes, I would be getting 64GB regardless but my girlfriend would probably be fine with 32GB.

    I would have got the 32gb option. Thats what I got when I purchased a Galaxy S6 and that was enough for me. Next year I really hope Apple makes 32gb the base model.

    I probably would have. On my 32 GB iPhone 5s I still have some free space left, although of course that doesn't account for larger photos, videos, and apps.

    My 5S has served me well with 32 GB, especially now I don't store music on the device and just use cloud services. Used: 23.6 GB, free: 2.7 GB. Photos still take up a big chunk (but iCloud helps here), and I tend to remove games that I'm no longer playing. That being said, I've got a 64 GB 6S on the way, so the extra space will be useful I think. I can imagine some newer games getting even bigger and it's a nice safety net to not worry about running out of space.

    If it was the base, then yes I would have gotten that.

    I'd be borderline. If this was a year ago then I'd say 32GB is enough. But now with 4K video I think it's still good to go 64GB.

    I could quite easily make do with 32GB and if that's what the base model came with then I would happily buy it. I don't store music on my phone and 4K video is unnecessary for me, besides I could export it as soon as it was shot. There is no benefit in playing back 4K video on the phone itself so unless you're someone who shoots a ton of 4K video whilst on vacation I can't see it being an issue.

    I'm always running out of room in my 32 gb iPad mini 2 and I don't take any pictures with it. I think 64 should be the minimum. I would have gotten the 128 if I could have afforded it.

    If the 32gb version was the base, I would have stuck with that rather than paying the extra $100 for the 64gb. I think this is the exact reason why Apple could take a long time before bumping their base up from 16gb to 32gb. A 32gb base would just cannibalize a lot of their mid tier sales (whether it is 64gb or whatever new amount).

    From a business standpoint, it's very smart (more people buying higher margin goods). From a consumer standpoint, I wouldn't mind saving $100 of course. And yes, I did shell out the extra $100 for the 64gb over than 16gb as 32gb is my sweet spot in terms of memory needed.

    I would not. I think it would have worked better for a lot of people but if you intend to shoot 4k video at all or intend to resale I would honestly not get less than 64. 128 is the most practical in my opinion. Being unable to expand memory in an iPhone makes me lean more toward more storage.
