iPhone Users Frequently Face Storage Issues, Survey Finds

iPhone Users Frequently Face Storage Issues

It’s becoming increasingly clear that a mere 16GB of storage doesn’t cut it anymore. Imagine trying to manage with even less, like 8GB.

But what’s the real impact of such limited space on daily device use? According to a recent investigation by IceCream and Ondevice Research, 42 percent of users with 16GB or less feel the pinch at least monthly.

The research, which surveyed 1,000 iPhone owners from the US and UK, revealed that a significant 76 percent of participants are dealing with 16GB or smaller storage capacities. Here’s a detailed breakdown of their findings.

This issue is closely linked to the tepid uptake of iOS 8, as users with full storage couldn’t spare the 5GB needed for the new OS installation.

Ice Cream has taken an interest in this dilemma, offering a solution through their app, which stores full-resolution photos in the cloud and leaves smaller, space-saving preview images on the device.
