Is 32 GB really enough storage for a new iPad these days?
I'm getting a new iPad, primarily for my 9 year old kid, who now has an iPad 4 (16 GB) that's stuck on iOS 10 and out of storage. The storage is full from apps and system, not photos/videos which are all on Google Photos.
I'm leaning toward the 2018 iPad 32 GB, because it's just $250 now, and the A10 chip is good enough for a kid.
But I'm concerned that 32 GB is not enough storage for a new iPad in 2019. I've read that the System alone varies from 8 GB - 25 GB, based on various user posts. On my iPhone X (ios 12) it's 10 GB.
For another $80, I can get the 128 GB iPad. That seems like way more storage than I'll need, but it's the next price step.
Beyond that, another $150 gets the new iPad Air 64 GB. That storage seems right, and it's a much better device, but at $480, it's almost 2x the price of the iPad 32 GB, and really too much for a kid's iPad (that's more likley to be dropped one day).
QUESTION -- I know "it depends what apps you have", but generally, is really 32 GB enough storage these days? Or should I just bite the $80 bullet for the 128 GB model?
Thanks Dave, you helped me pull the trigger on the 128GB -- and feel good about it.
