    In the event of an increased capacity which I believe to be unlikely I have left the option, but which capacity will you be going for and is this more or less than what you have now?

    And that is rightfully your decision, although many of us will. As I am sure the August through November delivery/complaints and expectation threads will show.

    It will be disappointing if they insist on pretending 16GB in the base model is still acceptable.

    +347. For a flagship phone, 16GB is not acceptable. I can't stress that enough. And I don't even want to talk about the 8GB phone. :apple: haven't sold an iOS device with less than 8GB for nearly 8 years now. Nobody is going to buy an entry-level phone if it has so tiny storage.
    I'm going to have trouble with my next phone if it has the same storage configurations, because I can't afford the 64GB and I can't live with 16GB. So PLEASE :apple:, make a 32GB option in the place of 16GB. In fact, double all the storage models which you haven't doubled already.

    In agreement, loving the zero votes to it! I think it is a good idea to have 32GB as base for the customer. But from Apple's point of view it would be a bad decision due to less people paying the extra for 64GB which is the general idea of their strategy. And as a company I do not believe we can blame them for that.

    I wouldn't care if they choose to do that. I wouldn't buy it but if someone wants a basic phone and wants to save a few bucks, why take the choice away?

    I find it hard to believe Apple will close that upgrade-pull the 16 or 64GB offers.

    Didn't actually see the zero votes. But still, what if people can't pay that extra money, like me? I just don't think the strategy works. I think people who buy 16GB (the minority) will still buy the 16GB. I think the only reason why it was done so people didn't have to pay as much for 64GB, and to introduce the 128GB. But for some reason, they didn't do it with 32GB. I wonder...

    The way of the world, users of 32GB in their previous device
    must choose 64GB. But remember, this is for the same price they paid before. Getting tripple the storage causes more 16GB users to upgrade, as for your own situation if you want more storage. Surely you should pay more? But, this is the balance between company and customer. From their point of view, can you blame them?

    But, for most people I know with 16GB devices or lower, every update is a struggle. So it would be a wonderful thing for them to do (32GB base), the question of if they will repeat the record revenue through iPhone is questionable. But, I suppose you could hold out some hope.

    I always have to have the newest and the biggest iPhone, and in white / silver. But I am considering moving down from 6S Plus to 6S and getting an iPad, something I have never had or seen the need for before.

    I'll be going for the 64GB.

    I was in the apple store yesterday and was tempted to buy a 6plus but I'm going to wait for the new one in a few months.

    For my past iPhones (since first gen) the lowest capacity was always more than enough, never had a problem with 8gigs and 16gigs. That's why I went with the 6+ 16G.

    A few months down the road, oh boy, had to delete so many apps and games and purchase icloud spaces.

    Recently I was given a 16G 6, situation was better, (also single hand operation too, 6+ was just too big, even after I got used it and thought I'd prefer it, when I use the 6, everything just feels right) but space is still kinda tight.

    In terms of 6S, unless the 6+S offers something way fancier than 6, I'd do a 6S 64G/

    I have no problems with 32GB since I started using iCloud photo library. But I know I would struggle with 16GB, because it's actually quite a lot less storage. Having 32 whole gigabytes extra would just be overkill. No advantages for me...

    I'm really hoping that 32GB is the minimum in terms of memory for the next iPhone. For my use, 32GB is the sweet spot since it still gives me plenty of space to take and keep pictures on my phone without having to worry about taking up too much storage space.

    If there is not 4" screen available for the next gen iPhone's, I'll probably just stick with my 5s for the time being.

    Sounds like the smart move, probablythe best iPhone for the majority of users (64GB latest)

    ----------

    Worth doing, 64.

    ----------

    I use iCloud photos but have nearly 18,000 photos so I go for the higher capacity. 32GB sounds perfect for you though due to the massive amount of spave. But it is really up to you if you want to pay the extra for 64GB as it seems to be the most likely (no 32).

    ----------

    That's the idea of their stratergy if you read my post, but remember the 64GB is now the same price as the 32GB so you could see it as you have double for free. But, wanting them to reduce the pruce of 32GB by £80 (or whatever your currency is etc). So basically, wait and see. If no joy on the 32, go 64GB.

    I'll vote for 64GB then. I'm confident that the 6 and 6 Plus will have a 32GB option after the 6S and 6S Plus come out (16 and 32, or better even 32 and 64, as 16 and 64 would be dumb), as the next gen phones are unlikely to have any killer features.

    Hope you are right, but I would not see it as an outrage if they did not due to the points I made above.

    Not at all; I skip every other release on everything.

    Now that Samsung, LG, and many other Android manufacturers having the base model start with 32GB of memory, I really hope Apple follows suit.

    I guess I'm missing something. If the base model is 16G, what is the problem for everyone that is wanting a 32G base? Aren't you free to purchase the next larger storage model available?

    No problem, people just want to get 32 GB one for the price that the 16 GB has been going for.
