    still undecided wether to get the 64GB or 128GB

    I have the 64GB air 2 so I like to,think that will be enough storage. Guess depends what else I put on it.

    What do you have currently and what are you planning to get?

    I currently have the 32GB 5S. When I got my Air 2 I was going to get the 64, but wound up getting the 128. I'll probably get the 128 for the 6S, too. I use it far too much for photos to not get all the space I can.

    I'm planning on 64GB. I've gotten by with 32GB on my 4S.

    128GB. Apps just seem to be getting bigger and bigger plus the 6 and 6+ are actually a decent enough size to catch up on TV shows.

    Depends. If Apple eliminates the entry level 16GB for a 32GB, I'll go that route. I have a 128GB iPhone 6 currently (originally planned on the 64GB but changed my mind last second and spent the extra $100) and while I love carrying around my entire iTunes collection in my pocket, I find myself streaming more than listening to my own collection.

    I have a 64GB and that works fine for me so I'll do it again.

    I feel I want to download loads of films and tv shows but then i think to myself why? I would just use showbox/moviebox for my Tv shows and films so why would i need 128GB as photos and videos won’t take up loads of space...64GB should be more than enough

    I currently have the (notorious) 16gb 6 Plus. If I end up getting the 6s Plus, I'll probably go with 32gb (if available.) I store most of my important stuff in the cloud and on my MacBook, but having a few extra gigs would be nice. ;)

    Murphy's Law. The occasions when I have plenty of time on my hands and could do with some mindless entertainment (e.g. confined at a hospital) also happen to be the times when I have poor cellular data connection and no/slow wifi access.

    true
    I know what you mean. How much does the average TV series or film take up? Guess it depends how many I would download. If i were to download Tv shows it would be a series would i imagine.

    64 GB is perfect for me. I have that on my 6 right now, will be getting another 64 GB in the fall.

    I've been rocking the 32GB iPhone 5 and have never needed more space. If the options are 16-64-128 I'll be getting the 64gb. Most of my videos and pictures are in the cloud so I don't need 128. Which one you get will depend on how much media you want to store locally and how much you're willing to spend.

    TV episodes are typically 250-500MB for SD, 1-1.5GB for 720p. Movies are ~1.5GB for SD, ~3-4GB for 720p and ~6-8GB for 1080p. I make my own rips from Blu-ray discs using Handbrake unless the Blu-ray release comes with Digital HD versions (iTunes or Ultraviolet) included. I stick to SD or 720p so I can store more content. Right now, I've got a season of Game of Thrones, a few anime eps, and a couple of Disney movies on my iPhone. Would be nice if I can keep a bigger selection on there hence the 128GB when I upgrade.

    Personally, I would go 64GB. 16GB is too small, especially in the era of iOS8 and iOS9. I have heard people complain about how 16GB was way too small to handle all the apps and photos they had on their iPhones now.

    it's so tempting but 128GB is likely £789 plus apple care would be like £886

    Well, minimum I'll be getting is 64GB so that's already $750 anyway ($850 with AC+). All things considered, the additional $100 to bump up storage isn't that big a deal. Now if I actually wanted to save money, I'd just keep using my iPhone until it breaks instead of upgrading whenever the fancy strikes.

    True when you are spending over 700 why not another 90 I guess. Would least mean how much storage you have left won't be an issue

    72 gb of music means I'm getting a 128gb model. Still undecided on black or white face. I like how white appears cleaner, but the black borders for media make the content appear richer. Decisions.
