    just curious what you do with all those storages...

    I'm currently on 64 and have about 20g left.. Apps+some music. No videos since I have unlimited data and plex to stream them.

    I realized its a different lifestyle when I switched from 16 to 64, as well as getting the unlimited data. So maybe there's also a different way of using 128g iPads that I haven't realized?

    Apps, movies, pictures, music, and camera videos. I filled my last iPad 64 all the way up. Never again. 128gb from now on on everything. I would buy a 250gb if they offered one.

    Video.

    You talk about how you have unlimited data and can stream it.

    For me, most of the time, I have no signal let alone data so streaming is a no go. Only way to do it is local storage or external storage. Definitely leave my iPad topped full with video, here I could never rely on streaming alone.

    Plenty of apps and pics but also I like to download on Amazon prime so I know I can download as much as I like even if it's not needed

    As I know I will take even more pics going forward

    I have loads of space currently but least I don't need to ever worry about space

    I have 61GB used, 53 GB available. The big hitters are:
    Plenty of apps (25GB)
    Photos (5GB)
    A few movies (8GB)
    Couple hundred Kindle books (couple of GB)
    Audible books (4GB)
    Several Nook-hosted magazines (several GB)
    iBooks (couple of GB)
    I could cull things but don't feel the need yet - that's the great advantage to having a lot of storage.

    Tons of music, apps, and movies for me to watch while I'm traveling. I don't have unlimited data, nor do I have the patience to download multi-gig files over a slow/capped wifi at a hotel... I only have about 8gb free currently lol.

    12K pictures, 3.5K songs, tons of games. XCom is over 3GB. A couple of movies and TV shows. And I still have some room left. Awesome.

    I have 16 GB free on my iPad Air 2. Most of it is filled with to shows and movies (75GB). The rest is apps and photos. I don't keep music on my iPads.

    The iPad Pro i plan on getting will have photo's, apps, documents sketch's and probably the odd movie and TV series. I'm currently thinking of investing in the 50GB for £0.79 if i go over with the 128GB iPad Pro storage.

    Mostly 720p video, movies and TV shows. Total duration of my longest set of flights is a little over 24 hours. With 128Gb, I have nearly 44 hours of High Profile 4.1, x264, 720p content. That gives me a lot of variety in my content.

    If I am going to buy an iPad Air 128GB I might want to put 1,200 apps on it. No video or music they are on wifi mobile hard drive. Pictures are on iCloud.

    Mine fills up quickly before a vacation or business trip. Mostly 720p movies/TV shows, comics, and some audio.

    Well I have almost 58GB of Music alone, so there's that....
    Then apps, photos and a couple movies put me at around 100GB used.

    Yeah. Newegg does indeed take a lot more space than Amazon. Lol

    So that I can watch them when I'm offline. Like on my daily commute for example.
