Everyone hates the 16GB iPhone 6s. Even people who buy it hate it. It’s not that the phone doesn’t perform as well as other iPhone models, it’s simply the principle of the matter. When Apple released the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus in 2014, it doubled each of the mid-range and top-level memory tiers without charging customers any more money. So users were able to purchase a 64GB iPhone 6 for the same price as a 32GB iPhone 5s from the prior year, and a 128GB iPhone was the same price as a 64GB iPhone 5s. The entry-level model stayed at 16GB, though. This is still the case with the iPhone 6s and people are not happy.
The move was a great one for Apple’s bottom line, obviously, because it encourages more people to buy a mid-range model instead of the entry-level iPhone. Not everyone wants to spend $750 or $850 on a smartphone though, and now you don’t have to. T-Mobile has just made another big announcement and smartphone shoppers this holiday season are going to love it almost as much as AT&T hates it. More →
