so I Originally ordered the 256 jet black for myself and 128gb matte for my dad. The 128 is coming tomorrow . I have the 128gb right now and have about 60gb space after deleting stuff . I mostly stream, except for audiobooks. I do a lot of photography and plan on shooting raw. Very little video unless at concerts . Do you guys think 128 will be enough . What did you guys get? Does cloud support raw now to?

in write there is some major speed difference the 32 Gb is really slow, but also the 256 is a bit snappier maybe this is also a point for you
i don´t need 256 gb, 128 gb is enough for me, my 64 gb is good filled ^^

In all likelihood I would be fine with the 128gb but I got the 256gb 7+ so I could treat it more like an iPad to load movies up on and such, if I had the 128 I would have to fiddle around with what I chose to store where with the 256gb I don't need to worry.

I have always bought the highest storage possible. My thought is I would rather have it and not need it than need it and not have it. 256GB is going to be pretty hard for me to use up.
I mostly am using it for photos , Apple Music and audible . I am a professional photographer .
[doublepost=1474318563][/doublepost]I never download movies at All. Does anyone know if the cloud excepts raw files now? also how big are they on the iPhone ?

I wanna know why UPS keeps rescheduling my delivery that was supposed to be here on 9/20. Went to 9/21 9/22 now it has no date.
Yes mine departed Alaska at 4:47pm, had delivery date tomorrow but now says unknown. Not sure what that means.

I have a 64gb 6s+ but when I get the 7 I will get at least the 128 and possibly the 256. I agree with Drew above if you can spare the extra cash for the larger size why not?

I got the 256. I load a lot of movies on my device to watch when I'm stuck at work. And with all my photos and music the extra space is welcomed.

Well the problem is i have the 128gb matte coming tomorrow .. I guess i could use it until the 256 comes and than send the 128 to my father. right now I have 60gb full on my 128 after deleting podcasts and some music. I really only use audible , apple music and for photos. I am just worried about RAW.
