Who really needs more than 64GB of storage in an iPhone?

I’ve never bought an iPhone with more than 64GB of storage. I’ve always tended to buy the one with the lowest storage available, too. It just isn’t something I struggle with. Which is odd, because you’d imagine if anyone was going to need globs of space it would be someone who writes about phones and apps for a living. But here I am with my 64GB iPhone 11 Pro with 20GB free. If anyone’s wondering, I have a 64GB iPad Pro with 20GB free, too…

Sure, if Apple’s 2020 flagship iPhone starts at 128GB that’s what I’ll get. And sure, it’ll probably be almost full because iOS is handling the housekeeping for me. But if 64GB is an option you can be sure that’s what I’ll buy.

MacDailyNews Take: Unless you’re a frequent traveler who wants to carry downloaded movies and TV shows, or a video producer who shoots tons of footage on their iPhone/iPad, 64GB is enough for pretty much anybody who uses iCloud Photo Library and lets iOS/iPadOS Offload Unused Apps.

  1. Well I am obviously not typical. Although I have used a modest 80Gb on my iPhone, I have filled 600Gb of my 1TB iPad Pro. That includes much business documents, 45k photos and videos, 1600 manuscripts, and a library of music, podcasts and videos to listen/watch while travelling the world
