iPhone 5 to come in 16GB and 32GB flavors, no 64GB? – rumor

An article on Apple Insider points to some product listings on Vodafone’s UK site. On the Sure Signal compatible handsets list are a couple of interesting additions. The list shows -or showed – a 16GB and a 32GB version of the iPhone 5 in white and black. I say showed because having now checked the page those four models have now been removed. Thankfully the guys at Apple Insider snapped the screen shot above to prove they were once listed.

There are a couple of possible reasons why they were displayed, even if it was for just a short time. Either the guys at Vodafone know what’s coming, and accidentally added them early, promptly removing them realizing their error.  Or they could have guessed. Pre-emptively posting, assuming that these devices are coming. Personally, I think they know what’s coming. If it is accurate information I find it a little sad that despite having tested 64GB versions of the iPod Touch and iPhone, Apple appear not to be releasing the device. With the quality of apps getting better all the time and taking up more storage space – thanks to the Retina display – 16GB is not going to be enough for a lot of people. I know it isn’t for me. The 32GB on my iPad is almost all accounted for, mostly with apps.

What do you guys think? Is it even worth creating a 16GB version anymore? Should Apple opt, as standard, for 32GB and 64GB models instead?

    @Cam How big are the different types of hard drives dimension wise. (16GB, 32GB, 64GB).

  • Well I think they shouldn’t rule out 16GB since some people don’t use that much memory, but I think that they should make a 64GB version.

    16gb for 199.99, 32gb for 249.99 and 64gb for 299.99 on contract would be good. I don’t use much memory but the most I would get would be the 32gb.

    That makes sense since they are pushing icloud storage and why make a larger iphone when they want you to use icloud. I can see people not wanting to rely on that but guess thats what you have to deal with.

    Id pay 400 for a 64gb, in a heartbeat

    I’ve had to delete all my 1-star songs and many apps as my 32Gb iPhone 3GS is chockers. I was hoping for a 64Gb iPhone 5. But maybe if iCloud is smooth enough, we can do without.

    I think Apple’s main reason for not making a 64GB iPhone is that the iPod touchs memory isn’t increasing. The iPod touch has always had a higher capacity model than the iPhone. I think Apple’s reasoning is that if somebody wanted to have more space, they’d just buy an iPod touch. The only way Apple would make a 64GB iPhone is if they increased the iPod touchs memory to 128GB.
