In any case, it's 16gb for the base model $650 iPhone... and $750 for 64gb. You're paying a significant price to get comfortable amounts of storage. Camera alone will eat up a ton.
Again, you seem to be hung up focussing on the iPhone. There are other smartphones out there both cheaper and with microSD slots. The future is not as bleak as you seem to fear.
Personally I think the future of local external storage is wireless, just as it will be for charging.
We're at an intermediate design stage, and having to insert one thing into another to have them communicate is going to be regarded as quite quaint by our kids. At that point everyone will be satisfied. SD cards are so last century tech.
