When do you think we will see storage larger than 256GB on an iPhone?
With the vast collections of media from music, movies, tv shows, apps, photos, and videos, we most certainly see a great demand for larger storage options for the device that most of us use every day.
Do you feel that 256GB for an iPhone is enough storage?
I certainly do not think so anymore.
While the App Store has millions of apps, we do not seek to have all of them on our phones, but with the vast majority of apps that the App Store delivers to our fingertips, we all could gain some advantages of this mass selection of apps that fits our personal and work lifestyles. We can easily find ourselves downloading hundreds of apps to fit our everyday lives. Storage needs to be ready for this change that we see everyday.
Movies and TV shows are vastly growing with more episodes, sequels, and thrilling movies that we all love and enjoy, movies are not just 720P quality anymore. We now have the crystal clear image and video quality that enhances our viewing experience, especially on the LED screen that the new iPhone X comes with. This media is no longer just 700MB, but can reach up to 8GB per movie and up to 2GB per episode of our favorite shows. Is 256GB really enough for all the media that we watch?
Photos use to be taken on our personal cameras, no one ever thought that we would use our phones as our primary device that we snap or record our precious moments. As we can see the vast number of photos and videos taken on our iPhone, we can see the need for more storage. With the average iPhone user taking over 2,000 pictures and 100 videos with their iPhone, it has become a growing need to include more storage on our devices.
iCloud offers a maximum of 2TB of cloud storage for Apple Users, although I feel this is enough for now, Apple should consider upgrading the storage options for power users that need the extra storage. The next tiers should be 5TB, 8TB, and 15TB of iCloud storage.
Let’s be serious Apple with the free iCloud storage. For the price we pay for your products, each user should receive the same amount of iCloud storage as the device they have, but free of charge.
