    I was just wondering, what capacities did the original iPhone come in? I think that the base model was 4 GB...And could someone also tell me what the capacities each iPhone model came in? Thanks

    I remember starting out with an 8GB 3G and thinking that was a lot of space to fill. It wasn't!

    Depends what you are doing with it. 8 might be cutting it close for quite a few in general, but I know of a number of people personally (which means there are definitely quite a few more that I don't know) that pretty much constantly have at least around 9 GB free on their 16 GB iPhones.

    I just noticed something: all the S-models increased the storage capacity of the previous generation iPhone. 128 GB iPhone 5S, anyone?

    It didn't take me long to fill the 8gb with music. 16gb on the 3GS felt ample, but then after I switched to the 4S of the same size it became cramped again, thanks I think to the bigger retina-optimised apps and latterly things like shared photo streams (which despite being a "cloud" feature can eat up a lot of your local storage if, like me, you have a lot of shared streams on the go with friends and family).

    Which brings me to my new 64GB iPhone 5. Feels really big right now, but...

    I don't see them doing a 128 GB iPhone just yet (the entry level MacBook Air's entire storage is that!), but I think it's entirely plausible that the 'S' storage upgrade will be 32 and 64 GB replacing the 16 GB and 32 GB price points respectively. Possibly see 128 GB in the 6S.

    Yeah, it would be great to see the 32GB being the base model after 4 years....
