Not so long ago, Jefferies analyst Peter Misek speculated that the future next generation iPhone 5S would support up to 128GB capacity. While 64GB for the highest model is plenty, 1080p video and high quality photos are starting to take up a lot of space with all of these upgrades.
In a recent Tweet from @iNeal, the hacker and developer found something interesting in the iOS 6.1 SystemPartitionPadding. In iOS 6.0, this segment of iOS only shows partitions 8, 16, and 32, but in iOS 6.1 the system shows 8, 16, 32, 64, and 128.
We should be seeing 128GB iDevices soon. iOS 6.1 beta 5 has 128G system partition key in BuildManifest.
