Perfect for the minor user who stores very little data on their actual iPhones, preferring to use the Cloud for any data or files. Also, perfect for the first time iOS user who doesn’t have loads of iTunes content that they want on their iPhone.


Best for the average user, giving a decent amount of storage of photos, music, videos and apps, provided you are not downloading them by the bucketful every day. It’s a mid-range price and worth the extra $100 for double to storage space.


This is for the user who spends all day every day downloading apps and music or who stores tons of photos or videos.  Perhaps the reporter or DJ among you would benefit from the 64GB model but for the average user, it’s a bit over the top.
