Every year we hope for more storage from Apple at a better price for the new iPhone, and with the iPhone 6 it’s time for Apple to deliver a 128GB iPhone at a reasonable price.
Apple currently sells an iPhone with 64GB of storage as the highest option at $399 on contract or $849 off contract. This is an expensive option, but for many iPhone owners that rely on the iPhone to record HD video and as a primary camera it one that is worth the price.
Even if Apple decides to release a 128GB iPhone 6 at $499 and $949, there are a lot of users who need the higher storage and would pay the price.
After just over 100 days with the iPhone 5s my iPhone is out of storage. When I tried to take a picture two weeks ago the iPhone told me I had no room left to take photos. I deleted 10-12 videos from my camera roll and got back to work, but this week the same error message came back and I will soon run into issues downloading updates for large apps.
In this case, it’s a matter of cutting more video and photos from the camera roll to get to a usable amount of storage on the iPhone, but ideally Apple will sell an iPhone 6 with more storage to fix this issue. Some readers will suggest deleting photos or using a cloud service like Dropbox, but when I need to find a photo to use in an article the easiest way to find it is normally to use the Collections part of the Photo app that groups by data and location. This is also important because I don’t always carry my main iPhoto library on my notebook but I always have my iPhone in hand.
