    It just kept bothering me that I could've gotten a better value for just a hundred dollars more so I decided to do it. Feels great! My last ipad was only 16gb. The possibilities here are endless. What do you 128gb owners put on your iPads?

    There is an app called Good Reader into which you can download porn from all the good sites, view it, it doesn't show up in search or iTunes, and thus no one else knows it's there.

    Movies, Movies, Movies!!! I have a basic group of flicks that I keep on my 128GB iPads at all times, and about 5-7 more that I load and watch via AirPlay during the week.

    So how is 128gb a "better value" than 64gb, especially if you have to ask what to do with the extra space?

    FYI, in terms of resale value, the return on higher capacities does not match the investment. Lower capacity iPads historically hold their value better.

    I'd put a bunch of media: movies, music, apps.

    I traded my 64gb in for a 128gb at Best Buy and now I'll be able to store my photos.

    It's kind of surprising that you have to ask what to put on it. I mean, if you bought the 64gb and considered it was small for your aims, you should know how to fill it. Otherwise, there is no reason for exchanging your device.

    My rule for choosing a capacity storage is: buy what you need.

    In my case, I think I needed 32gb, so I had to buy 64gb.

    A combination of bought music, home-made music in production and various music making apps are the main reasons I outgrew 64GB. Probably the only way the average user would need more than 32GB is with media of one kind or another.

    Movies, music and some hefty games to keep you amused. :cool:

    I've used my iPad 3 (64gb) as my day to day tablet and kept my rMini (32gb) for browsing the web, FB etc at home. I've recently got a 128gb Air 2 so the Mini is now my tablet I take on the daily commute instead of the 3 but I've felt the pinch of having only 32gb as opposed to 64gb.

    It's nice having a load of movies and music just in case you're bored haha.

    Well since you now only get 128gb for $200 more versus $300 like before and generally speaking price per gigabyte is cheaper. I read that in an article while deciding what capacity iPad to buy while buying the first iPad Air

    ----------


    While that is true if your planning on keeping the iPad till it blows up , dies or unusable by firmware issues like updating to iOS 15 then the most space you can buy if you can afford it is the best value since you don't know how many movies you will buy or apps
