    The 16GB really only exists so they can have a lower starting price...

    Perhaps, but I'm sure the difference in cost to Apple wouldn't even be noticeable if they started at 32 GB at the same price point. There's some marketing involved. They want people to pay the extra $100 for the 64 GB, which wouldn't be as attractive if they started with a 32 GB model over the current 16 GB model.

    I don't even acknowledge the existence of these so called "16gb iPhones" I had always went with 64gb, until when I went in to order my new 6s plus, the 64gb would have taken and extra month to deliver. 128gb was available in a week. I went ahead and spent the extra $100 and so far love the extra storage.

    Every phone that I've bought this past year has either been 32GB (Note 4/Note Edge - SD card capable to 128GB), 64GB (6S/6+) 128GB (6S+).

    I have a Note 5 coming today that is a 64GB. I will never own a phone again where I have to worry about what I can put on it again.

    Even my iPad is 128GB.

    If you don't store media and photos locally or use the cloud exclusively 16GB might be quite enough. Now, my FDA provided 8GB 5C? Now that is a waste of time. It barely has enough room for an icon. I know 16GB works for a lot of people. My FDA provided 16GB 5s is just fine because I'm not storing games and media on it.

    Yes I did but I barely use my phone. Just text, web browsing, a few online videos. I don't live with my phone the way a lot of folks do so the way I see it is if you can get by with a 16 then its ok

    I would never buy 16GB anything since I had a iPhone 3 which was difficult to upgrade IOS without deleting stuff. Not a big proponent of carrying personal pictures around or wasting my time playing games. 64GB seems to be perfectly adequate. 32GB entry level would make much better sense. I am 74 years young and cannot understand why young people waste valuable time playing silly games or constantly telling friends what you are doing minute by minute. Get a life and put your devices down a bit and partake of the world.

    I did initially but regretted it soon after as quickly ran out of space, despite not having all that may apps on my phone, no offline music/videos etc. At the time I got my 16gb iPhone 6S plus for 545 and could have got a 64gb for 600 or a 128gb for 635 - from a place that sells second hand phones. When they were that price though I kept saying I didnt need more storage - but when I did, the prices had gone up and they didnt have 128gb ones in stock any more and 64gb ones were hard to come by and when I did find one, it was 660 and came without a box. My partner insisted I got a 64GB from the Apple store instead for 690 instead of waiting but, ended up spending the extra and getting the 128GB one . 64GB would have been fine but, if I was being treated I thought i may as well get the extra storage as I wont be able to upgrade again afterwards.

    I disagree. There are plenty of users that are served well by a 16GB iPhone.

    The core audience here may scoff at 16GB but the general public has a differing view me thinks.

    Apple is still selling the 16GB because there is still money to be made with it. All the other manufacturers have pretty much moved on and offer the 32GB as the starting capacity so Apple kind of has that 16GB market to themselves.

    I gave my 8GB 5c to my mom to use and I honestly think it has plenty of space for her. We shall see.

    It's definitely to make the decision harder. Apple can make a cool $100 more to for something that's not that expensive (64 GB of space). The end user is less likely to choose the 32 over the 16 than is likely to choose the 64 over 16.

    I bought 64gb than 16gb. I believe that having enough memory makes you satisfied. You can do whatever you want.

    No, I upgraded from a 16 gb iPhone 5 to the 64 gb 6s Plus. It would be difficult to go back to 16 gb. I would if I had to. But it would be a PITA.

    I knew when getting my iPhone, 16GB wasn't even an option. I keep all my music on my device, and 16GB would hardly cover half of it. So 64GB was the only option.

    I had a 16gb 6+ and I had never had a spacial issue with any other iPhone until that one. Granted I only had a 4s and a 4 prior but that prompted me to just buy the 128gb and never have to worry about space for a long long time.
