Today, Apple smartphones come with different memory capacities, so the question arises which iPhone is better to choose. Sometimes price becomes the deciding factor when choosing. And there are those users who do not know how much memory is enough for the normal operation of the smartphone.
Even 5 years ago, users were convinced that the more memory a phone has, the better it is. Today, you can buy the same model, but choose the most profitable volume, and the smartphone will work no worse than a similar one with more memory.
When choosing a smartphone, you should immediately understand for what purpose it will be used. Understanding this point will allow you to make the right choice.
How much memory do I need for basic functionality?
Experts believe that only 20 GB is needed for basic use. No matter how much the developers optimize the weight of the operating system, when the device has little space, the device starts to run slower. This is because the system cannot save temporary files.
For example, the operating system version of iOS 13 can take up to 7 GB on average, but for normal operation, the storage must be at least an additional 10 GB. But extra space will never be superfluous.
Popular applications take up much more space
When a user downloads a certain application, he expects the size specified on the App Store page, but much more is required for normal operation.
For example, regular messengers and social networks such as Telegram, WhatsApp and others can take up to 100 MB, but require much more space. This is because the user can receive a large number of photos, videos, and other files. To show this content in the application, it must be downloaded to the device.
Of course, in this situation there is a way out - to regularly clear the cache. However, not everyone finds this method effective, especially if the user needs to have access to files around the clock. Quite often messengers are able to take up half the space (for example, a smartphone of 64 GB to 40 GB). This is because there are more and more files every day.
