Should Apple discontinue the 16GB storage option? What do you think?
They probably won't as they see it as a viable option in their lineup. Of course who really knows such things.
This has been talked about to death. Lots of people don't need more and I would be surprised if they got rid of it. If it's not enough for you, they have two other options.
No, just stop over-charging for 16GB.
I believe that Apple should ditch the 3 tiers of storage and go with 2 models: 32GB base @ $699 and 128GB upgrade @ $799 (full retail)
32GB is enough that average users won't feel constrained. 128GB is great for people who need lots of local storage for media.
I like the idea of 32 and 128. They will probably continue to sell the 16gb model because of how well it sells. Working in wireless, 9 out of 10 regular consumers get the 16gb model and don't even know the difference. Mostly because it's the cheapest option. Sure we'd love Apple to do the right thing and make the base model 32gb, but they probably won't since the profit is even higher in keeping a 16gb base model around. Being that the 64gb option is the same price as the 32 used to be, I have no problem with them keeping a 16gb around.
Seems like an incomplete question. Should they discontinue and do what instead?
They should but they won't
Only way i can see 16 gb being viable is if they greatly increase icloud free storage. But i cant see that happening.
Personally i would never buy a 16 gb phone.
I don't think they will loose 16 gb storage. Most things can be stored on the cloud these days so why bother. 16 gb is plenty for me all photos music messages stored on iCloud so I'm happy with 16 gb
All depends how you use a device.
if you have iCloud or some other kind of cloud storage I'm sure you can make it work..
I do think it limits the usage of the device In many ways, but no all users are the same.
16 GB on a phone is worse than 128 on a laptop. Which is really bad.
32/128. Then maybe do 16/64 with the older models.
What I think they will do is raise the price of base iPhone from $649 to $749 and then increase the storage to 32gb.
So this is what will happen with iPhone 7:
iPhone 7- 32gb $749
iPhone 7- 64gb $849
iPhone 7- 128gb $949
Apple can easily pull this off and millions and millions of people will still buy it. Heck people will buy it even if they raised the price by $200, or even $300.
I don't care really. People should just get what storage they need. I see a lot of people complaining about 16gb storage when they are using 128gb models.
Yes. For the love of God, please offer a 128GB option for the 7 mini
Just because some don't need more does not mean they should not higher up the capacity in the base model. It cost peanuts to double up more NAND flash.
