    Default Well.......

    I thought I could make it with a 32gb iPhone 7+, well I cannot. Going to pick up a 128gb today. That will be more than plenty.

    I am thinking the same. I have the 32 GB and still have 18 GB of free space after downloading all my apps, games, and music that I wanted. But I was considering buying the ileef external which is 50 dollars and I would have to also buy a micro SD, so I was like well I might as well just get the 128 GB. I have one reserved and going to pick it up today. But I am kinda concerned about the hassle. I got a 200 dollar credit for trading in my previous iphone and I also have apple care on this phone. So I am wondering how the exchange would work? Would apple care be transfered to the new phone and the 200 dollar credit? I also made a payement on my credit card as well and I am concerned about that too. Worse case, I just stick with the 32 and get the ileef external which allows you to record video and take photos directly to the drive.

    Some of us only learn from experience. When I got my iPhone 6 I went with the 64GB and thought that would be more than enough, boy was I wrong. This time around went with 256GB.

    I've always been an advocate of buying the most storage you can afford.

    yes. If you sell or give away your Apple device, you can also transfer the ownership of your AppleCare Protection Plan or AppleCare+ in regions that allow it. You can also transfer your AppleCare coverage plan between your own devices that are the same type of product and within 30 days of your original device purchase.

    I couldn't go with less than 128GB anymore, but I suspect I'll need to go 256 next year. Even my wife, who is by no means a power user, had to go with 128GB this year.

    So I just called the apple store and they confirmed I could transfer my apple care over to the new exchanged phone. I also traded in my old phone last week when I got the 32 GB and got a 200 credit. So I think, I would only pay the difference of 100 more for the 128 GB.

    ...are you going to be able to find one available? That's the question...
    Either way, good luck, and keep us posted.

    I have one reserved the same way I got the 32 GB with the iphone upgrade program link but apple will let you buy it without doing the program. I am going to get it once I get off work. But first I have to go home get the box and stuff for my 32 GB and then go to the apple store. Hopefully, it won't be a hassle or any problems exchanging.

    Well to let everyone know, my swap went perfectly. Reserved a phone online, went to the apple store and did the return/exchange. No problems at all.

    I was also successful in exchanging my 32 GB for a 128 7 Plus. I literally got the second to the last Plus my apple store had in for today. I felt bad for the folks that were waiting for the phone as I was leaving.

    It seems like Gold and Rose Gold are the main colors that pop up the most often in apple stores for the 7 Plus. I have not seen a black or jet black in stores at all (not even display models). Like two weeks ago my apple store got like six silver 7 pluses in and that was it. I guess gold and rose gold are not the popular or easier to produce I guess.

    I ended up with a 128gb silver/white combo. My favorite combo. I just like the white front face.

    Good call. I have a 32GB iPad mini 2 but have considerably fewer apps on it vs my iPhone 6s (64GB). Definitely better to have a phone with too much space than not enough!

    32 GB is still WAYY better than the 16 GB. If you are a person that only has a few apps and games and don't take pictures or video that much the 32 GB works well. I had a majority of my apps, games, and most of my music on the 32 and still had 18 GB of free space. I just decided to upgrade to the 128 GB just because I really started messing around with the camera and 4 K recording and noticed that those things take up a lot of space. But yea the 32 is kinda the new 16 GB ha.
