    I cannot imagine how one would fill up 256GB worth of content on an iPhone, so for those with 256GB iPhones, how have you guys been utilizing your new gigabyte estate?

    Plenty of people have a lot of music to fill it up. When you think about it this is the closest thing they have had since the iPod classic. And I love my iPod classic simply because it can hold my 100+ Gb of music. So I have about 70gb free on my 256gb iPhone night now. Couldn't be happier.

    I also have 202GB free. I had almost filled up my 64GB 6. I usually would double my memory each iPhone I bought (16gb iPhone 4, 32GB iPhone 5, 64GB iPhone 6), but always filled up the memory by the end of my contract. That's why this time I quadrupled the memory.

    94 GB free. Mostly music, including quite a bit of lossless. I think it's just over 10,000 songs.

    Better to have space and not need it than need it and not have it.

    I currentlyhave a 64 GB 6 plus, and I constantly am out of space. My latest total free after hing to delete stuff is 15 GB free. I went with the 256 just so I hopefully don't have to worry about having to delete stuff on the fly

    When I restore my iP6 I'll have about 128 as it's almost full. Looking forward to putting some more music on it :D

    I currently have 201GB. I plan to fill it with photos and music. Maybe some videos as well.

    Impressive. Still waiting on the 256 to be delivered here, but the 128GB has 20GB free, and just over 7700 songs. I'll be adding a LOT more when the next phone arrives. I also have around 30 TV shows, plus all our Christmas Light video's for the past 9 years on the phone, so the 256 is going to be hard to fill, but I intend to give it a good go :)

    Hell, I have the 128GB and it feels like all the space in the world. It's nice to finally be able to just click "Sync all music" in iTunes and have my entire music collection on the phone without space issues.

    Also, iCloud Photo Library can pretty much download the entire library as large previews, so I can show off my photos in good quality without it having to start with a blurry image and then load.

    If I had the 256GB? Holy crap I'd feel guilty about using less than half of it. :)

    I've got the 128 GB iPhone 7, with 121.97 GB actual capacity. Got 16 videos, almost 500 photos, 86 apps with still 96.33 GB left. I mean, that's crazy. It's a lot storage, a whole lot. Can't even think of a way to completely fill it. With my 64 GB 6s I had around 20 GB left with almost 150 apps on it (though with less videos).

    But I'm really happy I've chosen the 128 GB model. 32 GB would've been enough, but then I would constantly be checking how much I have left to install more apps. Did not have that with 64 GB, let out that I'm gonna have that with the 128 GB iPhone 7. :p

    Iv'e got the 128 GB iPhone 7 Plus and there are times when I think to myself if I really need the 256 GB. Looking at my usage I still have 107 GB of space left, so definitely for me it's not worth an extra $100 bucks.

    After loading my entire iTunes library on my phone (something I've always wanted to do), I have 135 GB left. This is WAAAAY cool. Lol
    My MBA has a 512 GB SSD. 15 GB Available.

    Since 4K video is now becoming the mainstream, Apple is trying to capitalize on the storage with the addition of the 2TB iCloud storage. For those who believe in the longevity of a product rather then buying the newest product year after year. I don't have the 256GB iPhone but I do have the 256GB iPad Pro W/ 2TB iCloud because it has replaced my Macbook Pro completely and i expectit to last upwards to 5-7 years, maybe even 10.
