For the first time ever since its launch, Apple�s next iPhone could be available with up to 64GB of storage � double that currently available from the iPhone 4 � according to a reliable source.

�Mr. X,� a source for 9to5 Mac who has previously been very reliable, reveals that in addition to the 16GB and 32GB options already available to iPhone customers, the fifth-generation device will also be available with 64GB of storage.

A 64GB device certainly seems plausible, especially given that a 64GB iPhone 4 prototype that was spotted earlier this year. Also, Apple often increases the storage capabilities of its devices with each generation. However, 9to5 does note that we could see an 8GB device rather than a 84GB one:

In all fairness, it is also plausible that the new iPhone will come in 8GB, 16GB, and 32GB capacities, but the appearance of a tweaked iPhone 4 (N90A) seems to refute that. Provided that the 8GB iPhone 4 rumor is correct, it would make little sense for Apple to produce both an 8GB iPhone 4 and an 8GB iPhone 4S.

The report also confirms that whatever its capacities may be, those model numbers in Apple�s inventory suggest the next iPhone is likely to be available in both black and white.

Do you think we�ll see a 64GB iPhone?
