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?
