    Default 16GB and 64GB 6s dropped... interesting...

    So, I was looking at Apple's site earlier and noticed there're now only two 6ses (6s's... 6ss... 6s-es?) -- a 32GB entry and a 128GB. My 64GB's now an orphan!!! Or something less melodramatic

    I saw that on the Keynote... I think it's awesome that Apple did that!

    Yep! It's about time they let the 16 GB variant go (outside of the SE).

    Agreed... 32GB entry is actually a pretty great move. Wonder if the next SE will go that route?

    Woah that's actually very cool for people who were struggling with 16GB but thought 64GB was too much!

    It was about time

    PS: However, I still think they should've kept 64GB.

    Ya I think it was the price point of a 16GB that a lot of people bought it for until they filled it and had to repurchase. 32 , 64 , 128 should always have been the options .

    64 seemed ideal to me, with my limited storage requirements (few photos, no saved video, no saved podcasts and streamed music) it left plenty of space for large updates without having to faff about. I think that removing 64 gig is about forcing people to pay 100 for the next increment along with the same (or more) for earphones that fit. Well done Apple 200 for nothing !!

    Well, at least the 32GB is the same price as the 16GB, and 128GB is the same price as the 64GB was.

    Well, given how they increase the price by a hundred (dollars or pounds, apparently) for the storage increment, I think [Apple thought] it might've turned people off to pay $100 more for only double the storage (instead of 4x that, now).

    Can I ask you in your opinion what are people going to do with the 16 gig model? Someone was sellong one for 350 unlocked and I held off because I figured it couldn't hold much space and prices where gonna drop. What's gonna happen to all those 16 gigs out there? Firesale?

    Historically, they'll either hold on to them until it's upgrade time, or sell them. If you're talking about current stock, that's a very good question; although perhaps Apple will sell these devices overseas (since they're still new). I'm also willing to wager that Apple slowed their 16GB manufacturing months ago to reduce stock, thus limiting the amount of 16 gigers left over.

    For some people, 16GB is still good enough (although, realistically, I'd say with the size of the OS/files/programs/photos nowadays, the mainstream user should fall much closer to needing more than that (i.e., the 32GB tier)). I think this is one of those times where used Apple hardware won't command a high resale price (for the 16GB models) -- I just couldn't justify spending more than $300 on a perfect 16GB 6s knowing the 32GB, brand new with full warranty, was only $550.

    If I had to get a new phone, I'd get no less than 32GB for my wife (she insists she doesn't care, but she chewed past 16GB real quick on her 32GB (Nexus phone)). For my mom, though, I was looking at a 16GB 5s (since I know the only things she'll store there are photos, which take a long time to eat 16GB) but jumped at a brand-new 32GB 5s (friend had it, still shrink-wrapped, in a drawer).

    Yeah the seller wanted 350 which IMO was too high for such small storage. Makes sense, under apple sellong them overseas and especially with new is versions 16 gig.is too small

    Since you dropped your 6s did the phone break? If so then upgrade to a different phone.

    Are you being funny, sarcastic or serious?
    If the latter, dropped means something totally different in this case.

    When I bought my 6, I thought the 64gb would be too much. Then I bought a GoPro and found myself shooting more video than pictures. I also saw myself getting into vlogs which takes up a lot of space. So this time around I didn't think twice about the 128gb and even gave the 256gb some thought. Then again for me, this will be a year commitment and then time to upgrade to the next iPhone.

    There's a lot of iPhone users who don't use much space. They may have 30 or 40 apps, 400 photos, and very little music, if any. The 16 gb is all they need. My wife is like that. She's had the 32 gb 5c for over 2 years, and has 20 gb available.

    Honey, it's called figuratively speaking.

    I urge you to stay on topic.

    1. The OP is talking about the price dropping (being lowered) not physically dropped.

    2. Did you just quote yourself?

    I'm sort of bummed that the 6s is now 32GB at $549 and the 128GB at $649, because last year, I got the 64GB for $749. I mean, dayum, 128GB for $100 less than that! I get that it's a year later and the iPhone 7/7 Plus were just released, but sheesh... I wish I could trade my 64GB for the 128GB now.

    LOL. Then wait until they're marked down to upgrade. Some folks do that. Always buy last year's model. But that's no fun, is it? We like to be first with the latest greatest. So we pay for it.
