Podcast 510: No more 16GB iPhone?

It's a smorgasbord of topics as we head into WWDC, from ticks and tocks to crowdfunding to cancer rats. But the thing we're most excited about is the rumored demise of the 16GB iPhone.

The iPhone doesn’t even get announced at WWDC—well, not typically, anyway. But this year the run-up to WWDC is silly with iPhone rumors, and Glenn and Susie are in a tizzy about two in particular. One is that we may finally see the end of the era when iPhone storage started at a paltry 16GB. The other is that we may see the end of the tick-tock cycle for iPhone upgrades—this year’s iPhone is rumored to keep the same form-factor as the iPhone 6 and 6s, with a bigger redesign pushed out to 2017.

Elsewhere, don’t make billionaires angry. Don’t buy into that study about rats getting cancer from smartphone radiation. Don’t worry about that ridiculous anti-encryption bill proposal, since it looks to be DOA. Don’t be surprised if Apple buys a cable company someday. And don’t miss the Macworld WWDC Happy Hour.
