    How much of the 32GB is being used? Can you live with the 16GB of storage on the air?

    Which tablet do you like the most?

    Personally, I'd sell the iPad 4, if I can live within the smaller storage but that's just me.

    I agree. Storage can be managed by removing apps and or other stuff that you aren't using on a regular basis. It takes a little diligence but it's totally doable. If you avoid storing movies or huge data files on it the 16GB won't even be that bad.

    Sell the 4.

    From what you said, you need more than 16 Gb.

    If you already know that you need more than 16 GB, then why are you even asking the question? I don't understand half of these common sense, personal choice posts here.

    If you're using most of the 32gb, how do you think you'll be able to live with the 16gb Air then?

    Sounds like the 4 is a better fit.

    If you're a hardcore iPad gamer then I would suggest selling both and getting a 64GB Air. You say you only have 2GB left on your 32GB iPad. Swapping out apps etc is a pain, and some apps don't use Game Center or the cloud to store your current progress - and game app sizes are large.

    Err... I usually avoid selling people's gifts (especially stuff from my parents), but I would definitely rid of the iPad Air if the capacity isn't sufficient.

    The issue I see is next time your father sees you without the iPad Air, he will wonder what happened to it.

    Indeed, these kinds of posts remind me that there are lots of school-aged children who post in this forum and on the internet in general. Spill the beans OP, you're like 15 years old, right? :)

    Sell both and get either a 32gb air or 64 air. You won't feel guilty for not using the iPad that was gifted because you really can't tell the storage capacity by looking at the casing, you'll have a newer ipad and you'll have all the storage you need. Win-win situation

    How about getting your dad to return the 16GB for a 32GB? :)
