    64. You will regret once you start playing with the phone. 16gb not enough. I'm left with 30gb of free space and I'm on 64gb.

    For most people I've found, 16 isn't enough!! For example, I have 1733 songs downloaded on my phone, 4 videos and a a bunch of podcast downloaded on downcast! The other 125 apps doesn't really take that much storage, but My Big 3 takes up almost half my storage on my 64G iPhone 6! Even if you don't think you will need the storage, the more you use your phone, the more apps and goodies you will want on your phone. At least that's been my experience! If you can possibly come up with the extra 100, I highly recommend the 64g!!Attachment 74809
    Most iPhone users have a 16 gb and are satisfied with it. Maybe you meant most people on forums.

    16 gb not enough? For whom? I've been using one since August of 2013, and have 4 gb available. You just can't put a ton of music on it.

    I bought a 16G iPad and regretted it almost instantly, when I realized how few movies I could get on it. Never again.
    I now get the highest storage I can find. I've got close to 700 stashed away already for my 128 Plus in September and I'll go to 128G for my next iPad. Saving for that one too but that's not as critical to me as my iPhone, although I know I'll need a new one instead of upgrading to iOS9.
    In my opinion and for how I use my device 16G is not enough for me.

    I could probably get away with a 16GB but for $100 more and quadruple the storage I had to go 64GB. All my music is in the cloud as well as all my pics and videos. I'm around wifi a lot so it's fine. I get 15GB per month on data also.

    Hi Sara- thanks for your inside. With your storage, do you have a lot of apps? I keep my music on another device, don't do gaming, but like apps. So I'm concerned that the 16 g isn't enough for apps and future apps updates. Thanks!

    My first iPad was 16GB and it was painful. Next one I got was 32GB which was a bit better. This year I didn't play around with storage I got 128GB for my 6 plus, mini 3 and air 2. There's no point in being miserable because there isn't enough storage.

    Even if you think 16g is sufficient for now, you will not think so down the road! Sooner or later you will need the extra space has been my experience!

    Exactly! That's your experience. Many never need more than 16. My Wife is one. She has 32 gb, but will never use more than 8 gb. She's had her 5c almost a year and has only used 4.6 gb. And some of that I put on there.

    after having a 16GB 5s and now a 16GB 6, I can safely say that's just wrong. If 16 isn't enough for you, just say it isn't enough for you. Personally, I've never had less than 7GB of space on either of my phones because I know what I want to use my for. i stream music, podcasts, and videos, never bother installing games because I'm an adult with things to do, and save all photos and video to the cloud.

    Its all about personal experience. If you put a bunch of stuff on your phone, good on you. I don't and save $100 every upgrade cycle not getting more space than I need.

    16GB is enough for some. People use their phones differently. How you use it will determine whether 16 is enough for you or not. Not everyone downloads music from iTunes and with streaming services growing in popularity, there really isn't a need for downloading from iTunes. Again, it all depends on the user. Let me also say that I'm in favor of a larger base storage than 16 and I hope Apple retires the 16GB option for the base model in the future.

    Same here. I was actually planning on the iPhone 6 have 16, 32, and 64 GB options, so I was planning on 32. I definitely wasn't going to get 16 GB, and I am so glad Apple made 64 GB the second option. 64 GB is the perfect amount of storage for me, and I'm glad I didn't get the 16

    It was a good marketing move on their part. A lot of people are realizing that 16 just isn't enough. If Apple would have made 32 the default, they would have sold a lot less storage upgrades.

    I couldn't go back to 16GB. Ive gotten to the point that just the normal apps that I use, the music that I want locally on the iPhone, a couple movies for the kids, and the pictures that I take on a daily basis is just too much for the 16GB. I could make it work if I had to, but Id rather not have to worry about space. Always went with the 32GB previously, went for the 64GB this time and couldn't be happier. I dont worry about space at all now.
    Couldn't agree more. The movies alone I keep on my phone for emergencys (kids, stuck at the airport, etc) take up a lot of space. For me the 64g was a no brainer.

    For me. No 16 gigs isn't near enough storage honestly I believe Apple should replace the base model with 32 gigs. Because in this day and age 16 gigs is about useless.

    Depending on the user. I have 18 GB available on my 32 GB nexus 6 which means I'd have 4 GB left on a 16 GB device. I stream most of my music but keep some on my phone. Otherwise I have all my apps and pics and I'm good. All my documents are stored on google drive.
