    They could but they didn't with 32 GB.

    Everyone knows Apple wants us to pay more for 64 GB instead of buying 16 GB.

    Any peasants (pun intended) ordered 16 GB? Available free space on fresh piece is 10-11 GB only. How will you manage rising 64 bit app sizes as well as pics, music, videos on it?

    peasant here. buying 3 or maybe 4 16GB models. Currently have a 32GB model, had 64GB in past. i would rather offload my pictures to iCloud or my Macbook then pay for the extra storage space.

    My wife and I both did. We rarely reach our limit 16gb on iphone 5.

    If i reach it, i'll probably delete some pictures which takes the most space. I have no videos and only 1gb of music.

    I did. With 35 apps and 1200 songs I still have 1.5gb free. Plus I stream music more now than I use to. So I'll probably put less music on it from now on.

    i ordered 64 but the logic is that it used to be 300 more for 64 so even though I've been fine on 16GB, since i bought 6+ i just went with 64 as on att next was like 5 bucks more.....had i stayed with just the 6, prob would have stayed at 16GB

    still furious they even made a 16GB, i remember when they had the 8GB! anyway, i felt like i was charged for what a 32GB would have been charged for essentially.....but had it been 32gb, i would have bought hands down! so yes was uncool by apple....

    i just try to think that going out for a night costs at least 100 so then its no biggie! i miss my days on wall street, dinner was more like 100 + a few more zeros, good ol'days!!

    remember we can return within 14 days so i think we will all get a better idea of what the heck is best for who! good luck and we can all sort out together here on the boards!!

    is yours arriving friday? mine is in my town a few miles down the road! ready to drive over just to be mac rumors secret spy agent! they prob have armed guards there!!

    Myself was thinking of buying a 16 GB. Always got 16 GB. But Apple will make me pay more.

    Remember in my country, we have to fork out full price upfront when we buy iPhones. So it does matter much more compared to the folks on contract.

    A co-worker with iPhone 5 tried to update to iOS 8, except he only had about 4GB memory available, which the installer told him not enough.

    Nowadays, 16GB is nothing and I can only imagine what it's going to be like in 2-3 years.

    that is what i was thinking too but i'm grandfather into 40GB iCloud at $10 bucks a year but i have over 40,000 pics + 30,000 songs on an iMac so i used iTunes Match and just let them be stored there and also did a full Time Machine back up before i cleared space and let Match store hold everything....then i could add more pics to iMac...

    haven't even looked at prices or scoop for new iCloud drive, was furious tonight when i could not access a few docs in pages i had just put there last week as notes was acting up! now if you go to iCloud.com you MUST upgrade to access your docs both on iPhone and Mac, i don't want to upgrade my iPhone as i'll try to sell soon

    yup, just looked at mine said you need 4.7GB.....but remember it will come on iPhone 6 pre installed which leaves 12GB, not good, what was apple thinking as everyone will freak when they can't even install next update lt alone an app!! I've been so busy wanted to look up in news

    ----------

    plans cost (according to my iPhone 5)

    200GB $4 a month = $48/year
    500GB $10 a month = $120/year
    1TB $20 a month = $240/year

    40GB is $12/year

    I bought a 16gb. Everything is in the cloud and streaming. I also don't have 537383 apps on my phone.

    same way, but i can always exchange, did y'all get the 6 or 6+?

    I'm thinking for 6+ 64 may be only way as then we can watch movies + such which i never did before....

    My first iPhone was a 4gb. I couldn't afford the 8gb version. Ha

    I wish I could pick 40gb plan as well. 20gb is too small and 200gb isn't necessary for me.

    16GB seems madness these days.

    you don't even get the full 16GB and now with iOS 8 something like 3.5-4GB isn thats probably less than 9GB available

    Here is some bad news for you. The ios 8 update is like 5gb. So with future iOS update, 16gb will have serious problem

    After the iOS 8 update and all of my apps and photos, I still have 8GB available. I think I'll be fine until the 6S comes out.

    Where did you get the info that it will only have 10-11gb useable space on it?

    ----------

    It is not that big. If you download it over the cloud it needs 5gb to prepare and install it. It is only just over 1gb when finished. If you dont want to have to remove content temporarily then update via itunes.

    I ordered the 16GB 6 Plus. And yes, it's because I was too cheap to spring for $399 on contract to quadruple my memory.

    Right now, storage on my 16GB 4S isn't a problem as long as I don't load too much music on it (currently have over 5GB available with no songs). And I never put videos on my phone anyway. Although I recently discovered that my messages take up 4GB, so I've been trying to delete as many as I can.
