To all you iPad owners with 64, 128, 256 GB storage: How much of that do you actually really use on a daily basis and how do you get all the data onto the device?
I agree that 128GB would be a comfortable fit for most of us. However, 64GB is workable if you always carry an iPhone and divide up the workload instead of duplicating everything on both devices. Heck, even 32GB would work with a little planning, as many happy owners of the 2018/2107 iPad deals are finding out.I think 128GB is the right size for me and a lot of people....
Which is why Apple only offer 64GB and 256GB to push us up to that next level!
Can't always divvy up the workload between phone and tablet. Majority (~80-90%) of my iPad's storage usage is comics and manga. Kinda useless to have those on iPhone.I agree that 128GB would be a comfortable fit for most of us.

During my recent iPad buying/returning/pondering frenzy, I had 128, 256, 32, and 64GB models. For me, the baseline works fine and I’m willing to adapt.
How much storage is useful is really up to the user, how they use their iPad, i.e., like to store files (movies, books, documents, photos) predomanently on board or in the cloud, how many apps they *really* use vs being an app pack rat, and, of course, being able to keep 10-15% free as cache and for updates.
Agreed, we each have our own demands, and how I use my iPad is going to be different then how others use it. There's also the the fact that we want to be sure we have a properly configured tablet for today and the future. That means perhaps configuring it for more storage for future growth.
I use 64 with no issues as my files are all cloud based and what’s local is never more then a few gigs at most. All my media is streamed as is my music with Apple Music.
Hope to buy new pro this year though.Have 128 on IPP pro 2015
Using about 30 of it
Use Dropbox, Apple Music, I Cloud
128 Is My lowest due to future proofing
