I upgraded from a 64GB iPhone X to a 256GB iPhone 14 Pro last year, skipping the 128GB model out of fear it wouldn’t meet my growing storage needs. This wasn’t the first time I spent more on extra iPhone storage. It turns out that, more than a year later, 128GB would have sufficed.
Storage is my second-biggest concern when buying a new iPhone, with battery life taking the top spot. But the dawn of AI might fix my storage problem, especially the kind of AI I’m dying to get on the iPhone. Personal, on-device AI features will not just require more RAM — they will also require more storage space.
