    As per title trying to decide which to buy. What's the free space out of box without adding your own apps on the 16gb model. Thanks in advance

    Thanks for that. Means I can save some cash and get the 16gb and leave my iPod touch just for music.

    I was in a similar situation with an ipod classic for all my music. Helps save battery on my phone and can save at least 100 bucks. I've had 16GB 3gs, 4 and 5 and take a good amount of pictures and have only had to download my photos to clear space once throughout all of those

    That's my thoughts my touch is a 32gb and has all my music on. So I'll save the money and get a 16gb one.

    How does it work with pages and keynote?

    Are they available for free for all specs? And how do they interact with osx(do I have to buy equivalent apps for osx or are they free)?

    I would highly recommend waiting get a 64 GB version at a minimum!!

    Why, because I know of many people now with 16 and 8 GB iphones that can not do the update because they need ~7GB free.

    Of course there are people out there will tell you to do it thru iTunes BUT

    my experience going down that road in the past was a nightmare.

    I lost data, because I did not have the proper amount at the time free and went the iTunes way and still LOST DATA, and no restore brought back my data and applecare also confirmed I lost it permanently!! No it was not contacts or calendar info, it was app data to specific apps.

    you can do what you want it is your money but I advise against it, 16 gig today is nothing, I have about 34 gig just in apps, 25 gig in music, pictures well??

    64 gigs may suit you, I'm sure it suits people these days better than 16 gigs. But I'm fine with 16 GB, i have 20 gb of iCloud data and 30 free on onedrive if i need it.

    But wow 34 GB in apps! I have a little over 1 gb with just 18 apps.

    Ohh, so that actually happened!
    I remember reading the rumour about this potentially happening, but they weren't preloaded on my 6 64gb so didn't think it went ahead. Have downloaded them now anyway.

    Indeed it did, in addition to iTunes U and Garageband which I've both deleted as I have no use for them lol.

    That's odd, the iLife and iWork suites were installed on my 64GB 6.

    That was gonna be my other question - whether it was a region thing or a production week thing. Might've been an after-though when loads had already been made and iOS 8 installed.
    Mine was produce in week 33 I think, and I'm in the UK.

    iPhone 6 free space out of box


    I'm in the US. How do you figure out when an iPhone was manufactured?

    12.2 free space, cool.

    I have a 32 GB i5 now and only used about 14 GB after 2 years, but I have a crap load of apps that I don't even use.

    So, it looks like I can survive of 16 GB, as I don't do anything but take pics, read message boards, stream Netflix (sometimes), some music, websites, etc. I don't play games, just Tetris and some gold game. Have about 1,300 pics.

    Looks like I can save $100, just have get rid of the apps I don't even use and have plenty of space.
