    Apple is facing a new class-action lawsuit in California, this time from users unhappy about how much storage space iOS 8 takes up on their devices. Their complaint focuses not only on newer iOS devices like the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, but older devices as well.

    Well, I do think if they intended to keep 16GB the entry level, they should of kept the OS on par.

    I am a firm believer that they should of dropped 16GB and went with 32GB as the entry.

    Trust Californian's to sue over such a trivial matter.

    Stupid waste of court time. I would think that Microsoft would be first in this kind of thing. They typically have way less free space left over. I guess no one cares since not many have their phones.

    Its not actually advertised as 16 G of free space so hopefully this is thrown out quickly. So what if 8 is bigger.

    It's ridiculous. All computing devices use storage space for the OS. I believe that iOS actually uses less than the other mobile OSs.

    Another crazy lawsuit. Storage management is all on the user. A 16 gig iPhone is enough. The user just has to manage apps and media. I have a 64 with like 30 left. I read a post today where someone with 128 has 12 gig left.
    So this user could reach a point of not having enough with a 128. It's all relative.

    Could not have said it better myself. Not only microsoft but with the experience I had I want to also include android with this as well.

    Why doesn't this apply to Android manufacturers as well? The 16 GB 2014 Moto X comes with 11-12 GB of free space, not to mention any of the Samsung phones that have 8-10 GB taken up just because of the OS and TouchWiz! Why aren't they getting sued over this as well? It isn't limited to Apple only.

    It least for windows phone 8 & 8.1 you have the option to move any item to the sd card that was fine; but when I had some of the galaxy tab line devices it is only selected items filled the device up quick regardless of what the sd capacity was.
