However, it should be noted that this change was already too late. The storage issue has only grown as the apps, photos, videos, and games keep getting larger. Although Apple has offered this capability since 2011 (joining the mid-tier 16GB and 32GB models), it stuck with it stubbornly even when Apple started offering 128GB, 256GB, and 512GB options on its phones.
This is something Apple has previously signed on to, like Iphone In 2015 it had 16 GB, although it only took Apple a year to turn things around with Iphone 7, which offered 32 GB. hypothetical.

Nintendo Fire Emblem heroes, for example, occupy almost 4GB storage. Apple Arcade’s Fantasian takes up another 4GB of space. It can quickly add WhatsApp and iMessage chats as well – a quick look at my phone shows those taking up 2.7GB and 4GB respectively.

Apple’s ProRAW format was introduced with models Iphone 12 Pro, you can average 25MB per image, and 4K footage can stack faster — iMore notes that 30 seconds of 4K footage at 30 frames per second will take about 175MB (or about 85MB with HEVC encoding).
