Apple May Be Sticking With 16 GB for iPhone 6s

If you were expecting Apple to double the entry-level iPhone 6s’ storage to 32 GB, here is some bad news: The 16 GB version is here is stay, according to an image showing the iPhone 6s information sheet, as shared by Steve Hemmerstoffer today on Twitter.

About a month ago, a sketchy rumour from China claimed that the next-generation iPhone would start at 32 GB, while keeping the 64 GB and 128 GB versions. While this would have been great news for the iPhone community, which has complained about the low storage space of the entry-level unit, we should remember that Apple has a solution for those people (as shared by Phil Schiller): increase iCloud storage (i.e. buy more online storage), and you are good to go.

Now, in the light of the rumoured camera upgrade – 12 MP camera and 4K video recording support – a 16 GB version will likely limit the user, due to the storage space required by 4K videos. However, we can’t exclude the possibility of Apple adding a 32 GB version this year, so let’s hope that besides four colour options, the iPhone 6s will come in four storage options as well: 16, 32, 64, and128 GB.
