Rumor: New iPhone 5 May Offer 64GB Storage



Yet another significant detail on the upcoming iPhone 4S/5 has emerged from 9to5Mac, with their source suggesting that the new device will be offered in three storage capacities as opposed to the current two. While the iPhone 4 is currently available in 16GB and 32GB, the new device will either be an 8GB version or, even better, a 64GB version.

The arguments for each new size are as follows. The 8GB iPhone, while representing a lower capacity than is currently offered, could fit into the rumors that Apple is preparing to offer a more economical version of the iPhone 4 which would be more affordable. A decreased amount of storage would obviously help to reduce the cost. However, given that a new iPhone with the product code N90A has appeared in Apple’s inventory (the code for the existing iPhone 4 is N90), this would seem to suggest otherwise.

The likelihood is that Apple will be preparing to release a 64GB version of the iPhone as rumors in the past have suggested that the company was prototyping devices with that storage capacity.  A video with a white 64GB iPhone circulated several months ago suggesting that it was certainly a feasible option.

However, with the launch of iCloud and iTunes Match approaching quickly, could Apple be focused more on cloud storage versus onboard storage?  We’ll have to wait and see.

    Doesn’t really surprise me that much, the technology is obviously there to put it in so there’s no reason they wouldn’t that I can think of, they can also probably mark it up a bit more. Also wouldn’t be surprised if the next iPod Touch is 128GB.
