    The Chinese website MyDrivers is reporting that (Google Translate) (Chinese original) that the iPhone 7 Plus may be available in a 256 GB version.

    Macumors tells us that MyDrivers has a mixed track record at reporting on Apple's upcoming product plans.

    That's ridiculous. I have 128 and there's no way I'll fill it up. You'd have to take a lot of pictures and a very large music library

    You'd be surprised at how many have their 128 nearly full or full. I see users with 50 and 60 gb of music. Plus 300 apps and several thousand photos. It's not many yet, but there are screams for 256 gb.

    The nice thing about this is it eventually results in the the storage capacity of the other two models going up without a price increase. Also, 4K videos eat up a ton of space.

    1080p uses a lot of space too.

    Bring back the 32GB model and ditch the 16GB model.

    OMG! @Ledsteplin I just checked my Available storage from my 128GB (which is really 113GB) :( I have 19.1GB available! :unsure: GEEZ! I'm out of control!
    My iPad Pro 9.7" is 256GB and I will be getting the 256GB iPhone7 Pro(?) if they offer it.

    I know, I know, I'm out of control. I checked and I have 74 videos on my iPhone 6S+. I know when I delete them I'll have much more space available. That still won't stop me from the 256GB purchase if offered. :laugh2:

    I know the feeling. I have a music collection the is a little more than 300GB. I wish I had the room for about half of it that I browse through regularly but my 64GB iPhone 6 doesn't have much room after a movie or two, the operating system and some photos.

    That's what I'm hoping. I've got a 128Mb model now and am doing an OK job of living within that space. (Way better than I did with only 64Gb). I'm really hoping that if they bump the storage the bump all 3 layers: 32/128/256. One article I read said the new phone would offer 32/64/256Gb. I really hope that's not true cause I'd still need to buy to "top" model. That's a lot of money for cheap memory.

    256GB isn't that much for some users. I have an iPhone 6 Plus with 128GB, and only about 15GB left. I would love the raise of that memory roof! :sneaky: I will assume that the iPhone 7 Plus camera is far better than the one I use now, so the extra space is welcome for me.
