The arrival of the iPhone 13 complicates the annual question of how much storage you should get for your new iPhone. Previously, to answer that question, you’d look up how much storage came with the entry level iPhone, roll your eyes, and then pay up for the next tier of capacity.
That’s changing with the iPhone 13. Instead of offering 64GB as the base level of storage as it had for recent iPhone models, Apple bumped base capacity on the iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 mini to 128GB. And the iPhone 13 Pro models, which continue to offer 128GB of capacity in its own entry-level model, adds a 1TB option for shoppers who can never get enough storage.
With iPhone 13 pre-orders now underway, it’s time to figure out just how much storage you need. Answering that question requires us to review the available iPhone 13 storage options and consider just how comfortable you are with relying on cloud storage.
