Apple’s reluctance to adopt expandable storage on its iPhone lineup makes choosing the right iPhone a little dramatic. The 16GB iPhone is priced accordingly with other competing smartphones, but choosing more storage means an incredible price bump, and we all know surviving with 16GB of storage is not realistic. One of our biggest concerns is how Apple will approach its storage options for the iPhone 6, and today we get some interesting data about it.
GeekBar has been in charge of a ton of iPhone 6 rumors lately, though some of these have been questionable. Today this source has revealed that the iPhone 6 might sell in three storage options, in a similar fashion to what we see with the iPhone 5s, but these options are 16, 64 and 128GB. Yes, we know 16GB is ridiculous, and yes, we also find it odd that there is no 32GB option being mentioned, as this is the new standard for competing devices that are also offering expandable storage. Toshiba and Hynix are apparently responsible for the 16GB option, Hynix and Sandisk will take care of the 64GB model, and Toshiba will handle the 128GB models.
It’s hard to see any reason why Apple would continue with 16GB of Storage after almost four years, or why 32GB options won’t be offered. Whatever the case may be it’s hard to confirm if we can trust GeekBar this time, but we should see more information revealed in the next coming weeks.
