    I would love a 128GB iPhone! 16GBs is just too low for me, I download a bunch of apps & take a lot of photos which obviously takes up a lot of space. I've had my iPhone 4 since last June & I had to clean up what I don't use on my iPhone just to keep me over 4GBs. When the next iPhone comes out I'll definitely go all in & buy the highest GB model.

    Follow that route? Apple basically CREATED the route to market cloud storage for smart phones...
    I know that, but I'm just saying that I hope they don't get rid of built-in flash memory, and have to base everything in the cloud.

    I doubt they'd ever remove all internal storage, some people are simply too paranoid to use cloud based storage (in fear of access from others, like what happened earlier this year). At least not in the foreseeable future anyways.

    128GB isn't gonna happen with the iPhone, I'm will to bet on that. Get ready to purchase the 64GB model as that is the highest that an iPhone is going to have.

    I did not finish reading this comment but it seems that you may be over analyzing what ever it was i said in my comment. Also i would like to encourage you to summarize or at least condense if possible .
    Let me see if I get that straight... "You did NOT finish... but it SEEMS to you... WHATEVER it was YOU said in YOUR comment"... Okay I myself stopped right there, I figured you could only have it right...

    I honestly don't see a need for 128gb. I feel there will be more push for cloud storage. My old MacBook Pro only has a 120gb hdd. My first gen MBA even less. Still got plenty of space left. What i don't always need, i store it on a external hdd. What i think i might need, i store it on a cloud storage.

    Which is pretty much the same reasoning on local storage on iphone. I only store what i need on the phone. I think 128gb will drive the cost of the iphone up too much as well.
    People are saying about Cloud storage, but Cloud storage relies on having an internet connection, and with most of us having a limited amount of cellular data, this could then mean that we would run out of data if we were outside of a wifi area, especially if we were accessing Cloud storage frequently.

    Using the "limited data" excuse is going to become an irrelevant point eventually...just like when people complained about a phone's abilities over WiFi vs. cellular networks when smart phones were in their early years. Technology progresses, people are expected to keep up (and for the most part do), but there will always be some that have excuses why this wont be good or that wont be good, but the thing is, consumer products don't follow those people when it comes to feature development (thankfully)...if that were the case, we'd be using phones that could only go online over WiFi networks and only make calls and simple SMS text's over cellular.

    Yeah, but in the UK at least we have data limits on smartphone tariffs, so it isn't going to be irrelevant just yet. But my argument re needing to have a Internet connection whether cellular or wifi is still going to be an issue, even when and if we have unlimited data tariffs. Cloud storage has its uses (I use iCloud myself and find it useful for keeping my contacts, photos, on both my iPhone and iPad in sync) but whichever way I look at it, I find that the best storage is having it physically on the device itself, for the reasons I've mentioned.

    Sadly 64GB will be it for now, maybe in 2 years when Apple figures out people are tired of paying the high data plans to stream their audio they will give us 128GB versions. Personally I say dump the HDD iPods and bump up the nano, and iPod Touch and iPhone storage that is what users really want.

    Assuming that the higher storage will likely cost more, I'd rather pay for a bigger battery than more storage. 126gb??? Seriously? That's insane and not what the mainstream market needs. 32 gb is more than enough for the average consumer and many people don't use their iPhones as an MP3 player soo il stick to my statement. If we're going to pay more for something, wouldn't you want something new instead of more of the same?

    What people are saying is not to increase price points for the iPhone with bigger storage but rather increase the storage on the iPhones current price points, meaning you pay the same but get more storage. As for the battery, you wouldnt pay more for a bigger battery. It's not like apple consciously makes the batter worse than it could be. Having a bigger battery means having a bigger device which means having a different device. You wouldn't pay more to get a longer lasting iPhone battery.

    Now that I think about it, I think increasing the storage makes more sense for an iPad update, seeing as it is touted as a media consumption device, where you. Cn watch tv, movies, listen to music, and such. Larger storage makes more sense to me for that device.

    What do people put on their phones that 64gb isn't enough? And don't day music because anything over 5gb you never listen to it all anyway.

    If you think the carriers will reduce prices or increase your monthly GB data allowance then you are sadly mistaken. Carriers have made it clear they see data as the new cash cow and newer smartphones are pushing users to do more like streaming which is costly.

    Plus iTunes Match needs to have the ability to stream and not d/l only then maybe on WiFi it would be worth something but I want to use it in my car or when I am out and about.
