Anyone else think 64GB is now likely?

    I wasn't too sure about seeing the inclusion of 64GB in the iPhone 5 before, but now I'm thinking it's likely we'll see. It just makes sense. What does everyone else think?

    Apple likes to stay ahead of the game, and releasing another 32GB model a year and a half later could be seen as a disappointment. Memory prices have dropped, we know they have tested 64GB iPhones before, etc.

    iCloud is nice, but still it would be nice to have 64GB.

    I am crossing my fingers and hoping that Apple actually releases a 128GB model iPod touch, then I will likely get that with a 32GB iPhone.

    iPod touch is dead. Sorry to bring that to your realization.

    All I know is that I need at least a 64gb iPod. Preferably the Touch.

    So, if Apple releases a 64gb iPhone, then I'm sure they'll release a 128gb iPod Touch. At which point, the 64gb iPod Touch will be $220? :D

    If not, I'll buy the Classic.

    Seriously dwindling sales and Apple's clear focus on the iPhone.

    I don't see them discontinuing the iPod touch. It was originally made for those who want that iPhone like device but can't have it for some reason. Saw someone mention this earlier.

    Also the new iPhone is rumored to be even thinner than the iPod touch is now so my bet is they'll make a contract free iPhone and remove the iPod touch line.

    A contract-free iPhone would be an iPod touch so what would be the point? Steve Jobs even said at the iPod touch 4 keynote that the iPod touch is an iPhone without a contract.

    TBH, I'll be very surprised if a 64gb version isn't available.

    I think that we'll see the 8gb replaced by 16gb and moved to the 'entry' level price point and 32gb/ 64gb take on the $200/ $300 price point.

    Haven't bought an iPod touch touch yet but will definitely buy a 128GB iPod touch. iPhone wise it definitely WILL have 64GB b/c they did not update it for the iPhone 4. And they will update the new iphone just like the 3gs. Better camera and processor and memory. And the same goes for the iPad.

    Why would Apple discontinue a device which they maintain high margins on & still sells 20 million+ units per year, which is what the iPod Touch does?

    Does anyone think that Apple will go:

    iPhone 3GS 8GB - Free with contract
    iPhone 4 16GB - $99
    iPhone X 32GB - $199
    iPhone X 64GB - $299

    Kind of something for everybody.

    The iPod touch 4th gen had a 64GB model, I don't see why they couldn't find a way to integrate that into the new iPhone.

    With respect, I disagree.

    There are those who don't actually wish to be tied into a contract, but who are more than happy with what the Touch offers, otherwise.

    This is my question also. In fact, if Apple went to the trouble of crafting a 128SSD Gb Touch, I'd consider myself in the market for such a device (I already have the 64GB Touch and love it).

    Cheers

    That's what i'm saying

    It'd be stupid to have an iPhone when you don't have a contract / use the phone features.

    Don't think that Apple build their products to fit you.

    Just because YOU don't care/use/have an iPod Touch , it doesn't mean its dead.

    64GB is a likelihood by iPhone 6, maybe. It's a matter of maintaining Apple's profit margin. If they are unable to keep it where they want it, we may never see one.

    Non touch screen ipod sales are "dead". That covers ipod classic, ipod nano , and shuffle sales.

    Touch screen ipod (aka ipod touch sales) are still going strong.

    That's for clarification for those who claim ipod sales are dead.

    People need to read into the sales numbers

    Really? I think that iCloud's goal is to be the replacement of 64GBs.

    Think about, to be able to download an app from the cloud, whenever you want. I highly doubt we'll be getting 64GBs this year.

    I believe it's very unlikely to see a 64GB iPhone this year.

    I wouldn't say a 64gb iPhone is out of the question. It really depends on the profit margin like another poster said.

    However, out of curiosity, what do you need 64gb for? My music collection is ~38gb, but I have no need to carry that around. That is something like 3 weeks of continuous playing and even if you listened to your music 5 hours a day, it would take well over three months to cycle through every song. And, iTunes Match is coming so why not spend the $25 rather than the $100 for increased capacity if you just can't wait to get home and play a particular song?

    I understand apps, and photos, and videos take up space, but I just can't imagine needing access to more than 10gb of music on my device. Hell, with Amazon cloud player there is another 5gb right there for you.

    Same

    I think that Apple will once again roll out a 32GB model so for the people who need the extra space, people will have to use iCloud and possibly pay more money monthly rather than a one time cash to Apple for the 64GB model.

    Funny thing is, people will fill everything up to the limit, and still ask for more. In a few years we'll wait for a 128GB iPhone.

    I have everything i need with me, i have a bit less than 1GB left over on my 8GB iPhone 3G. I have all the videos, pod casts, music, apps, photos etc. I use. But i sync every night. So 16GBs will be overkill for me, but i'm looking forward to it.

    I'm in same boat, using different phone but 8GB is enough.

    16 GB would be nice to have but I just can't imagine filling a 32GB let alone a 64GB one.
