Rumor - Apple will release a 128GB iPhone 5s

technologyEdward KiledjianComment

Regardless of the maximum device size released by Apple, there are always customers demanding more. The largest iphones currently support 64GB of storage but that may all be about to change.

The latest IOS 6.1 beta 5 seems to support a larger 128GB system partition key in BuildManifest. This would match up with previously seem NAND upgrade patterns from Apple (which are about every 2 years).

Online storage providers have been trying to fill in the gap by convincing customers that streaming and online storage is a better option than plucking down top dollar for the largest device possible. But until bandwidth caps are raised and speeds reach 4G in more areas, many will still demand larger local storage.
