Unused Device Storage Adds Up Quickly
The chief problem with this is thinking is that, for starters, it’s madness, but secondly, it results in a lot of wasted cash. If I look at just my three current devices (1TB MacBook Air, 512GB iPad, & 256GB iPhone), I am overpaying for storage to the tune of nearly $800. That’s the value of an iPhone 12 or iPad Air sitting dormant in untapped (and likely never to be tapped) storage.
I’ve been consciously purchasing less storage for my devices based on real-life usage rather than “what ifs” for a few years, and yet I’m still afraid to total up my unused storage cost.
