    Leaked schematics from phone repair company GeekBar (via G 4 Games) suggest Apple may be preparing to release a 128 GB iPhone 6 model. An accompanying part supply list contains entries for NAND flash modules from Toshiba and Hynix in capacities of 16 GB, 64 GB and 128 GB. The 32 GB storage option is notably absent from the list, although the reason for its exclusion is unknown.

    Previous rumors have suggested Apple has been working on a 128 GB iPhone model, with one rumor claiming the higher capacity module would debut in the 5.5-inch model only. The same leak also predicted Apple would drop the 16 GB option, introducing a 4.7-inch iPhone 6 model with two storage options (32 and 64 GB) and a 5.5-inch model with three storage capacities (32, 64 and 128 GB).

    This new parts list from GeekBar appears to refute that claim, opening the door for Apple to add the 128 GB model as a fourth storage option for consumers. Apple launched its first 128 GB iOS device in early 2013 with a mid-cycle upgrade to the fourth-generation iPad. The option expanded across the iPad lineup with the October 2013 introduction of the iPad Air and iPad mini with Retina display, which also are available in 16 GB, 32 GB and 64 GB capacities. The 128 GB option has, however, yet to make its way into the smaller iPhone and iPod touch form factors.

    16 GB shouldn't even be an option anymore. iPhone 128 GB $949 :rolleyes:

    a random person will be happy about this and will be accused of flip flopping.

    If true, this should be a great thing but I dont know how reliable these geekbar schematics are

    A lot of people will be happy if this is indeed true. I'm ok with my 64gb,but happy for those that want this,if indeed this is true.

    Awesome, I hope it drops the price of the 64gb version, since that's what I need. And I do hope they drop the 16gb.

    64?

    I would much prefer wireless charging over 128GB. Then again, as long as there is an Apple logo on the phone I am certain it'll sell.

    there will be no 32GB option, it's confirmed.

    Base model: A1586 MG472X/A -- 16GB 4.7" iPhone 6 (at least for Australia & New Zealand)

    Prepare your bank accounts. I think this might be the first one getting into the 4 digit range.

    16GB for the "low budget" iPhone 5S replacement in a plastic shell for those that do not want a bigger screen.

    32 GB (still exists imo) and 64 GB for the iPhone 6 (4.7)
    and additional 128 GB for the 5.5 one (more space to fit the memory)

    *wishful thinking :D

    This is great but 32GB has always been more than enough for me.
