    Default Should I stop buying 16 gig phones?

    With iOS 10. It took 1.8 gigabytes of space just the beta profile. Should I stop buying the 16s and go for the 32 or higher?

    Get as high a capacity as you can afford. 16 GB is doable but not without some sacrifice and creative storage solutions.

    It all depends on how you use your device. I personally always go for the largest storage because I need to keep movies, files, books, etc. on my device, in case I don't have wifi on my flights. If you're someone that manages most of their storage in the cloud & you don't keep a ton on your phone then 16 is fine. Again it depends on preference and how much you plan to store on your device.

    Rumor has it the new iPhones will start at 32 gb. If true, you won't need worry about 16 gb. But if you have done well with a 16 gb, I don't see any reason why you can't continue that. You don't have to keep the profile. It's just for the beta.

    As others have stated, it all depends on your usage and if you are interested in actively managing your storage. I am not, but 16 gb can work for those who do.
