1 TB iPhone whats the Price? Think about it 512GB is already $1,300...
My guess would be somewhere between $ARM and $LEG.

As has been said countless times, 128 should be the minimum across the board.

For me: 256 is the sweet spot.

YES! Finally! 128GB should be base model all the way!

Ps: Who in the crazy world needs a 1TB phone in their pocket?

Sweet! I’ll take the 1TB option, please. It looks like it’s pretty much confirmed at this point.

Most likely crossing the $1,600-$1,700 mark. o_O:eek:

Update: Last report before iPhone and Apple Watch is announce is out from the goat. Mr. Gurman.

If CSAM launches off, people will definitely need 1TB iPhone.

Glad, Apple is throwing that option out there.

Absolute apple fan here, but if my iPhone X has 256gb.. it’s four years old now.. memory is so much cheaper now in 2021.. how Apple even sells a 64 or 128gb phone that now shoots 4k video with no memory card still perplexes me…
