    I always buy the maximum storage device but if I was preordering I would stick with the 256 GB model. My needs are far below a half a Terabyte.

    If I was going to upgrade, I would probably get the 512. YOLO

    If I were upgrading, I’d stick with the 256 GB model. I’m not even close to filling the disk space of my current 256 GB iPhone X.

    I’m comfortable with the 256, but I like having the highest storage capacity

    256GB is more than enough for me. I don’t see myself getting a 512 anytime soon.

    512 is an awful lot. I don't see paying $100 more for what won't be used. I don't think I even need 256.

    You mean $200 more? It’s $200 extra from 256 to 512.

    I don’t even come close to using the 128 on my iPhone red 7 +. I might stick with what I’ve got.

    I almost considered the 512GB but am going to preorder the 256GB. My reason for considering it was to future proof a little but then realized I've never kept a smartphone model for more than 12 months so it would be pointless for me.

    No, I didn't know that. Missed that part.

    Me too, plus I usually wait for the smoke to clear and wait for a Bogo deal or something.

    I got the gold 512GB Max.

    Keep more seasons of my favorite shows and more films for when I travel.

    And the bigger screen will be fantastic.

    If I were going to upgrade this year (I’m sticking with the X) I would definitely upgrade to the 512gb model. I have the 256gb with only 8GB of storage left.

    Why will you need that much storage space? Just curious.

    No. I use Google Photos, Google Drive, Google Keep, Microsoft OneDrive & OneNote. There is no need for a 1/2 terabyte phone.

    I upgraded to the 512GB iPhone Max and haven’t regretted it at all. I like to record a lot of 4K videos @60 fps and it can gobble up the storage quite fast.

    I don’t utilize iCloud that much because there is no end to end encryption on that part and I like to keep everything local on my iPhone just in case I run into a situation where I have no internet or LTE to access the iCloud.

    Plus, I like the fact my content is secure with encryption when stored on my local device with passcode protection.

    This is the first time I didn't get the maximum storage on my new iPhone. I went with the 256gb Xs Max and it's more than enough for my needs and wants.

    Every iPhone I have had, Ive always gone with the middle storage tier. I got the 256GB Xs. 64 wasnt enough, 512 would have been way overkill.

    Actually, there is end-to-end encryption on iCloud. https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT202303

    Unless its changed recently, I believe it has always been this way. Knowing Apple and how they are about security, I dont see them setting it up any other way.

    The reason I had doubted the end to end encryption with the iCloud is because the recent investigation by Bob Mueller and they were saying that is how they caught a lot of criminal activity. No encryption on their iCloud accounts.

    I would like to be able to confirm this 100 percent but that is what o based it on.

    Can you post a link to this info? If this is true, I would like to know about it.
