I have a 5s 64Gb now and keep approx 5000 photos, 3000 songs and a ridiculous 125-ish apps (many of which I don't use regularly) and still find an adequate 6.5 to 8Gb space to play with (actual empty space). I just don't see a need with the iCloud option to push a 128Gb device. I am sure there are folx with use cases that support that much memory but none that I can think of -- especially at the price they will end up at. I think Apple will have at least a 64Gb and 128Gb.
Give me a rigid case so that the BIG6 screen does not break and then stuff every nook and cranny with battery. You don't need to shave off another 0.5 mm to make it slimmer. I would love to be able to do more stuff on my iPhone that I am pushed to my iPad (or my iMac 27) for because it is just to small. And let me use it with GPS and BT on without watching the battery drain like there is a hole in it. I also assume the new processor will consume a bit more juice and managing the larger screen will as will the OIS since it is mechanical. All this screams 'more battery' to me.
That's what "OPTION" actually means: more than one size of storage.... for the 4.7 64 is enough for me but if the image files are scaled up I'd probably consider a 128 for the larger screen phone, somewhat as I did for my iPad Air where I chose 128 (and currently only have about 25 open).
I full well understand the meaning of option. I used it at the end of my first ¶ "I think Apple will have at least a 64Gb and 128Gb." I stated that because someone actually said that the BIG6 would only ship in 128 Gb version -- something I don't support or believe is true.
The dictionary clarifies the meaning of option (with no specific reference to size of storage required).
option |ˈɑpʃən|noun1 a thing that is or may be chosen: choose the cheapest options for supplying energy.• [ in sing. ] the freedom, power, or right to choose something: she was given the optionof resigning or being dismissed | he has no option but to pay up.• a right to buy or sell a particular thing at a specified price within a set time: Columbia Pictures has an option on the script | [ with infinitive ] : an option to buy the land.2 Football an offensive play in which the ball carrier has the option to run, pass, hand off, or lateral.
I believe def 1. applies to what we are talking about here.
