Most people have a love-hate relationship with 16GB iPhones.
They're the cheapest, base-model iPhones, but on the other hand, they're annoying to use on a regular basis. Between all the selfies you snap and apps you download and other media you like to store on your smartphone, a 16GB iPhone will quickly fill up, leaving you with no free storage space.
Let's not forget that over-the-air updates eat up a lot of space as well. Many people have therefore long expected Apple to ditch the 16GB standard and start iPhones out at the next level: with 32GB of storage. According to 9to5Mac, which spotted this story by MIC Gadget, Apple is ready to take that step.
Unnamed sources at manufacturer Foxconn have apparently seen product packaging for the next-generation iPhones, thought to be called iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus, and noticed stickers for 16GB models do not exist. The sources subsequently believe that the new iPhone will start at 32GB, followed by 64GB and 128GB capacities.
Keep in mind none of this information has been confirmed. Also, Apple’s Phil Schiller argued recently that the 16GB version is relevant for not only price-conscious customers but also those who take advantage of cloud storage.
