    Does anyone know how much storage space iOS 8 will take up on the 16gb model? I can't find this information at the moment.

    Probably a few gigs. I would assume around 3

    In comparison, iOS 7 took about 200 mb more than iOS 6. So if iOS 7 takes about 3.2 gb, then after downloading iOS 8, the system may take 3.4 gb or so.

    Cool. Thanks for the update. I guess I'll probably get a 16 gb model and use the free onedrive/icloud storage.

    Your phone will usually need about 6 gb of free storage just for the update. It takes space to load it in. But afterwards, you get the space back. So, do what you need to do to have 6 gb of storage before installing iOS 8.
