iPhone 5 Rumor: Larger Storage Capacities Upcoming?
[ Technology]

How much information will the upcoming iPhone 5 store when it hits the markets in the near future? If the rumblings are to be believed, the newest iPhone will match the storage capacity of its iPad cousin/brother/relative.

According to a report in 9to5Mac, there will be three different storage capacities for the device, which could be available in 16, 32, and 64 gigabyte sizes. Not only that, but the various capacity devices will be available in both black and white. Of course, sifting through all these rumors could very well be an exercise in futility/wishful thinking, but the information about the new device’s capacity sizes has hit the wires and is being widely reported by various publications.

Whether or not the new device is an actual iPhone 5 or if it is the iPhone 4s, the grapevine is pretty solid in its belief the new devices will have an increased capacity. The following block from 9to5Mac demonstrates as much, provided the rumor pans out:

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.

As indicated, the capacity story is a hot topic around the web, including Twitter, where the rumor is being treated, for the most part, as fact:

Some have begun speculating about prices for these increased capacity devices, and if the following guess is true, one wonders what the 64 gig model will cost:

Assuming storage and price structure doesn’t change with the iPhone 5, looks like I can expect to pay $500 for a new 32GB iPhone. 3 days ago via Twitter for Mac · powered by @socialditto

So? $750 for a 64-gigabyte model? If so, would you be as apt to lay down that kind of money for such a mobile device? What if it’s only $600? With that in mind, does this mean Apple is envisioning the upcoming devices as something much more than a mobile communication device? Let us know what you think.

    No matter what the capacity size will be, it will still be a very expensive phone and will come with all the bells and whistles.

    Eventually in the phone wars it’ll come down to the most useful and appealing design, ease of use, reliable connection. Amount of storage and apps are dependent on one’s life-style and ability to afford so are a veriable.

    iPhone is a technological tool that nice blend of cell phone with a laptop computer

    How would keeping the current price structure mean that a 64 gb iPhone would be $500? The base (16gb) would be 200, the 32 would be 300 and the 64 would be 400. But I don’t think that the 64gb would be that much because the iPhone has never been as expensive as an iPod touch with the same amount of memory( after rebate). I think that they will either not have a 64gb iPhone 5, or have it be the 300 dollar model and have only the 4s as 16gb. I don’t think there will be an 8 gb unless there is no 64 gb. And I really don’t think there will be a 64 gb because I think apple wants you to store you things on the cloud instead of on the phone.
