    128 GB should suffice for all my needs. Even 32 GB is not enough in some respects anymore.

    I have went with 64GB for the 6/6s/SE. With the 64GB presumably getting nixed, I may go with 32GB since that should still be more than enough for my needs.

    Depending on the file size of the dual camera images, I will get either a 128GB or 256GB version. I think with 4K video, live photos and dual lens it will be needed.

    I don't think they will cut 64GB for 128GB and then 256GB. Storage isn't cheap enough yet. I honestly don't even think there will be an 256GB. Still costs too much for Apple's profit margins to hold. I'm guessing it will be 32/64/128 and I will go with 64GB again.

    Storage is the ONE thing I think Apple will standardize across their iDevice platforms and offer 32/128/256 - Apple always has a way with making up their profit margins - force sell.

    Apple charges $200 from 128GB MBA to 256GB MBA. I don't foresee them being able to do it for only $100 on an iPhone. iPads use 2 flash chips, so the 256GB iPad is two 128GB chips, which is a lot cheaper. Also look how iPad Pro prices are. Its a $150 price increase between sizes, not $100.

    There have been leaks that show they are going to give a 256GB option, now it could all be hear say and false rumour, but I do think the fact that they added a 256GB option to the iPad Pro indicates that they will do the same with the iPhone.

    Still doesn't change the fact that it might not be the top option at only a $100 increase. It very well could be 16/64/128 for the 3 prices we've seen for a while then $150 more for the 256GB as it is for iPad.

    It's going to be 32, 64, 128. 256 will be next year.

    That being said, I'm not getting an iPhone this year. :)

    That being said, if I were getting an iPhone this year, I'd get the 64. :D

    Yea it will probably be £150 more for the 256GB option. I'm guessing the iPhone 7 Plus will top out at £900 - £950 for the 256GB version.

    That is a beyond belief price for a phone - in Canada that would round out, all in @ $1,700 - how many are going to fly off the shelf at that price.

    In the US its current $949 for a 128GB 6s+. Add $150 for 256GB option and you are looking at $1100. They will sell some, not many, but some. I foresee 256GB being rare. And just like all previous high storage models, it won't hold the resale value. No one is going to pay $400+ more on a used iPhone because it has 256GB over 16GB.

    I don't think there's anyway they are going to offer 4 different options. We may see the 256gb being $999 US instead of $949 for the top model but no way we see 4 storage options IMO.

    There is no way we will see a 256GB model for only $50 more. Its too expensive. If we see a 256GB model, I'm willing to bet it will be Plus only.

    16/64/128 for iPhone 7
    32/128/256 for iPhone 7+ But it will still carry a minimum of a $1050 price tag.

    I meant $150 more for the 256 over the 128.

    7 Pricing:

    32 = $649
    128 = $749
    256 = $899

    7 Plus pricing:

    32 = $749
    128 = $849
    256 = $999

    But you are assuming 128GB is cheap enough to replace 64GB I don't think it is.

    iPad Pro 9.7"
    32GB $599
    128GB $749
    256GB $899

    iPad Air 2
    16GB $499
    64GB $599
    128GB $699


    The price of 128GB actually went up $50 over the course of 18 months from the Air 2 to the iPad Pro 9.7".

    If you truly think we will see 256GB phones with only 3 tiers it will be more like this:

    7 Pricing:
    32 = $649
    128 = $799
    256 = $949

    7 Plus pricing:
    32 = $749
    128 = $899
    256 = $1049

    I think this may be the case, the 256GB option will only appeal to a certain small number of people I think, mainly those of us who take large amounts of photos (we still don't know much photos taken with a dual lens camera will take up) videos and even Live Photos. So I think around £900 - £950 is about right for the 7 Plus model.

    Care to explain? I can afford a 256GB option, it does that mean I should buy it?

    The vast majority of people don’t buy an unlocked phone for full price upfront. That would probably be a scary looking number for a 256 GB drive but adding $5 - $10 to a monthly charge a lot of people wouldn’t flinch, especially while also trying to confuse you with all the different plans and upgrade cycle options. I’m sure they could craftily shave some money off that phone cost with a different plan, just moving money around.


    I’ve got over 100 GB of music and want it all on my iPhone. Yes, I listen to all of it. Thanks for asking. I’ll be well entertained when the zombie apocalypse hits while everybody else is crying over no wifi or cellular. The cloud will be the first thing the zombies kill.

    Well for me I would get the 256gb Model, I would love to store all of my music on my phone. I hope that they don't charge extra for the 256gb model and just take it the same price as the 128gb is currently.
