Apple’s New iPhone to Offer 16GB, 32GB & 64GB Storage Capacities [Report]

Apple’s New iPhone to Offer 16GB, 32GB & 64GB Storage Capacities [Report]

For the first time ever since its launch, Apple’s next iPhone could be available with up to 64GB of storage — double that currently available from the iPhone 4 — according to a reliable source.

“Mr. X,” a source for 9to5 Mac who has previously been very reliable, reveals that in addition to the 16GB and 32GB options already available to iPhone customers, the fifth-generation device will also be available with 64GB of storage.

A 64GB device certainly seems plausible, especially given that a 64GB iPhone 4 prototype that was spotted earlier this year. Also, Apple often increases the storage capabilities of its devices with each generation. However, 9to5 does note that we could see an 8GB device rather than a 84GB one:

In all fairness, it is also plausible that the new iPhone will come in 8GB, 16GB, and 32GB capacities, but the appearance of a tweaked iPhone 4 (N90A) seems to refute that. Provided that the 8GB iPhone 4 rumor is correct, it would make little sense for Apple to produce both an 8GB iPhone 4 and an 8GB iPhone 4S.

The report also confirms that whatever its capacities may be, those model numbers in Apple’s inventory suggest the next iPhone is likely to be available in both black and white.

Do you think we’ll see a 64GB iPhone?

    Hope to see it in 64GB! Since I started using a Mac with iPhoto and play the tunes in my car from the phone my 16GB iPhone4 is at it´s limits.

    Why would Apple up the storage on the phones with iCloud around the corner?  

  • Anonymous

    Apple has repeatedly said iCloud is not a streaming service. If you read on Apple’s website, iCloud is for syncing information, and allowing you to download media wherever you are. Both syncing and downloading require internal storage.

    It also makes sense in that the new 8MP camera’s image size will be considerably larger, requiring more drive capacity to hold the same number of photos as the previous model.

    Wait. Why is it iOS 4.1?
    I’m assuming SMC-Voda 8.0 is Vodafone.

    i really hope to! mine is a 16gb iphone 4 and im pretty sure it’s not enough for me. think a 64gb model would be perfect! i just wonder if it would be better to have a 64gb ipad 2/3 and keep with my 16gb iphone 4 or improve my gigas on my iphone…

  • Cold_dead_fingers

    Yeah, it’s kinda of better to just have two devices. I know a lot of people like having ALL their stuff on their phone, but I like a light phone. I tend to keep my music on my iPhone but thats about it. Everything else I load up on my iPad, wchi is my media/work machine at school. I web my iPad 2 ?

    I really do wish they would release a 64GB iPhone. I just sold my 16GB iPhone 4 last night and I always ran out of space. Plus those people with AT&T who do not have the unlimited plan cannot depend on iCloud to always download their songs because they could easily use up their bandwidth. I think they should just release a 16GB and a 64GB because MOST people I know do not use up half of their 16GB. 32GB would be a lot for many people.
