With the advancement of technology, the volume of applications and multimedia data is growing steadily, and therefore requires a constant increase in the volume of internal memory to store them. This year Apple finally abandons the 16-Gigabyte iPhone: with the release of iPhone 7 the minimum amount of memory will be 32 GB, which of course can not but rejoice. However, this does not mean that you should buy a basic version of the iPhone.
If it wasn’t enough for 16 GB of memory in the smartphone, and it seemed that 32 GB is what you need, this does not mean that they will last in your new iPhone 7. The development of gadgets grow and appetites. Growing needs of users: we download more apps, take more photos and videos, increasing content quality. Increase appetite applications: new opportunities and beautiful graphics — it’s a precious megabytes. Grow and appetites of the device, because he needed somewhere to store captured them as 4K video.
Actually, 16 GB is already long enough for most users, but 32 GB is not the best option.
1. Memory has become cheaper
This year Apple will abandon the 16 – and 64-Gigabyte models of the iPhone and will offer the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus with 32, 128 or 256 GB of internal memory. Thus, choosing a smartphone with a storage capacity of 128 GB, you get almost 100 GB of additional memory for only $100. Last year, paying the money, you only received 48 GB of additional space. While the iPhone 7 is 128 and 256 GB will cost iPhone 6s 64 and 128 GB respectively.
2. There is no support for microSD cards
Also, like any other Apple smartphone, the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus will not be a slot for memory cards microSD. The only way to expand the internal memory of the device is to purchase an external drive to use which is not always convenient. By choosing a 128 – or 256-Gigabyte version, you will not have to pay extra for such accessories. This volume is quite enough to store any content.
3. More storage – less data in iCloud
Yes, all need cloud storage to store personal files, but with a more capacious drive you will always have the right data at hand, regardless of the availability of the Internet connection.
4. More demanding content
As you can see, in the last years to the iPhone requires much more memory. Live photos, improved quality, 4K video, more complex games, movies in high resolution – all it requires additional memory. With the iPhone 7 on 32 GB, you will have to decide which games to install or how many episodes of the series to download before you travel.
5. People increasingly prefer an iPhone with more memory
Statistics – a stubborn thing. In 2014, 40% of all iPhone buyers turned to the stores for a model with 16 GB of memory, in the case of iPhone 6s such was only 33%. The number of people wishing to buy iPhone 6s 64 GB is 51% against 48% a year earlier. Finally, at the moment, iPhone in the maximum configuration (128 GB) has attracted 16% of people with 12% of similar purchases in 2014.
It is worth noting that since last year, users do not have to pay the full cost of an iPhone and sign a two-year contracts with operators. Instead, Apple will offer to buy iPhone 7 in installments according to the program Upgrade the Program or use the program of exchange of old iPhone to the new surcharge. Services are available only on the territory of the United States, but soon their geography will be expanded.
