Another purported 'iPhone 6' document suggests Apple may offer 128GB model

    I can understand 128gb for an iPhone if you have a huge music library and you don't want to buy a separate iPod. And iTunes Match isn't quite ideal because you would have to download the music you want using your wifi connection BEFORE  you leave your house, otherwise you'll blow thru your cellular data in no time.

     

    Yes, you can turn two settings off to avoid music downloads on cellular, but then that means you can't listen to your own music when you want to - on the road/out and about - unless you remembered to download specific songs before you left your home wifi connection. iTunes Match isn't a perfect solution (yet) to having your own music available anytime/anywhere.

     

    So you think to yourself, "Do I buy a lower memory iPhone (16 or 32gb) and a larger memory iPod (64gb)? Or do I buy one larger memory iPhone (128gb) as an all-in-one device?"

    There continues to be nothing ‘flagship’ about a device too large to be used.

    Apple is not a hardware company only.  Mr Tim Cook said it himself.

    Their software/services/customer experience is what sells the devices just as much as the beautiful hardware.
    Except its hardware that people pay for. Of course all those other things are baked in to the price but I doubt anyone seriously believes Apple products are too cheap. Now maybe I wasn't being clear with what you were saying. I'm fully expecting a 5.5" device to be more expensive than a 4.7" device. But I think it would be a mistake for Apple to reserve certain hardware just for the 5.5" model as I believe there are people that will pay for these features but would prefer a smaller screen. I know in my case if the 5.5" model has better hardware just because then I'll keep my 5s and Apple doesn't get a sale from me.

    Where’s your source that one hundred million people have phones larger than 5”? You’ll notice that 100 million is smaller than 7 billion.

     

    So Tallest Ski are you FINALLY going to admit I was RIGHT about the 5.5?


     

    You’re not right, under every definition of the word. It smells so bright a mute man could hear it.

    The article was about emerging markets. The idea is based on the presumption that many users in those markets can afford only a single computing device so they are attracted to a phablet with voice calling capabilities. It makes sense from that perspective. In the US people tend to have multiple devices of various sizes.

    95%+ of my music is ripped from my CD collection. Without iTunes Match (which I don't use) iCloud is much less useful for me. I'll take that 128GB please.

    I think a lot of people forget that all devices have pros and cons. Mobile devices are all compromises of some sort or another, even laptops. My Mac Pro with 30" Cinema, Ricoh high volume color laser printer, along with my Avaya multiline business phone have only one compromise, they are not portable. People have differing needs, which is why there are so many choices in the mobile segment. Adding one more is just another possible selection for someone who is willing to accept a certain mix of compromises.

    I knew you would hop in with the the justification for 128GB as justification to support the 5.5" theory! LMAO!



     


    I think there is value in a 5.5" iPhone. Unlike you though, I am not so sure that Apple will make that big leap this go around since no substantial rumors have floated in a while, someday your your dream will come.


     


    I would like to see:


     



    • a sapphire screen cover

    • true stereo output from internal speakers (even if it only allowed a mixed of L & R

    • be able to handle environmental issues better (like moisture from a quick slip of the grip while on the "throne”)

    • a way to save network settings and then export/import them on same or different iPhone/iPad

    • folders inside folders - they could even call it iOS HFS+



     

    Don't be too disappointed if the 5.5 doesn't make the holiday shipping season.

    So any source on that?

    Because Apple wants you to buy the larger, more expensive product.

     

    Have you not been following Apple for the past few decades?

     

    I don't know for sure what will be announced of course come Sept, but if the 128GB RAM is only available on the 5.5" phone, then I will not be the least bit surprised, as that is exactly what I am expecting Apple to do.

    Why don't you use it?

     

    It's only $25 bucks a year. I use it and it works pretty good.

     

    I no longer have to waste any space or waste money on extra flash memory needed to keep tons of songs on any of my devices.

    Show me when the CEO was proven to lie about unit shipments? 




    Yeah, don’t try to move the goalposts with me. I’m the one who painted the lines on the field; I can see where they belong.

     

    Also, additional lies and theft.

    So no, no one intelligent, under any definition of the word, would trust anything Samsung says.

    just because  you have small mitts and are allergic to using two hands does not mean others are not.

    You need to get out of your bubble and realize that MANY OTHER people have a different opinion about large phones than you do.

    So Tallest Ski are you FINALLY going to admit I was RIGHT about the 5.5?

    If that was true Samsungs massive phones would be selling like hot cakes. They don't. Even Samsung has admitted to this.

    Court cases in which Samsung officials have to explicitly state the truth, which contradicts what the company said before the case sure are wrong¡ You’re intelligent enough to know exactly what I meant the first time. Quit grasping at straws and accept that your reasoning is based on utter nonsense and lies.
