Looks like the 16GB iPhone is (potentially) history...

New 'iPhone 6S' Leak Confirms An Increase In Base Storage Capacities - Forbes

...Guess Apple wants to keep up with the Joneses, and are going to a 32GB baseline (which is what a lot of users wanted anyways).

Business wise I don't really understand this, since the 16GB was a very solid seller...but knowing Apple's constant strive to keep the consumer base happy and retain their top notch consumer satisfaction rating, this was inevitable.

I think I'll still be getting a 64GB model myself.

I'm not certain 16GB is what people actually want, it's more so what people want to pay, since it is the cheapest option. With higher resolution cameras, HD movies, and apps taking up more storage, 32GB makes a more user friendly starting point.

If this is true, it's what I feel is most advantageous to the consumer.

For the same price, I don't think anyone would turn down the 32 gb in favor of the 16 gb. But most do make do with the 16 gb. Many do it with ease. I know people with maybe 30 downloaded apps and 5 gb of music with 5 gb available and they're happy. I've used 8.5 gb of my storage capacity of 12.5 gb. I would like to have a bit more. And 32 might fit me better than the 64. I don't have much music, and don't plan on paying a fortune to get more. $1.29 per song can add up quickly. So, I'm hoping this is not rumor. I could apply the $100 savings to purchase Applecare+ or a nice case. But if no 32 is offered, I'll get the 64.

16 gb has always been fine for me. It's never been an issue of price. But I'll gladly take a 32gb for the same price.

It also looks like there will be a substantial upgrade from the 6/6Plus to the 6s/6sPlus.....Hummm, this changes things for me.

This changes the game for me also, I don't think I would like force touch on my iPhone though.

As long as it can be easily disabled I'll be okay with it. On Android devices haptic feedback does nothing but waste battery IME so if force touch is anything along those lines I'll just want to disable it.

This is a good thing, like anything that is software that grows for each software update; operating system, applications that hold a large amount of data, 16GB is minuscule. However apple should pay attention to the iPhone 5c that they are releasing with 8GB of storage.

I'm glad they might do this, it would definitely benefit the consumer. It won't effect me though, because I always buy the second tier storage option. Base model storage has never been enough on any device I've owned.

Lol. Why couldn't the iPhone 6 start at 32GB? My dad would only get me the base model 6 or 6 plus. But I'd just fill that with a bunch of useless stuff anyway.
