Does anyone know about a "128GB Flash memory" hardware issue in the new iPhones (iPads) ? Is it real or fake?
(It is easy to find general info by simply Googling "128GB memory issue")
I see tons of postings about it ... but all dated Nov 3 to Nov 7. Then nothing. Though it looks & sounds like a genuine issue, it is so hard to tell the real issues from the "competitor flame wars" (like Apple vs Samsung).
Thanks for any insight

It seems not.  I quote this article whenever we are asked about it at work as a 100% definitive is hard to find.

Thx Neilsr. So you're thinking "not" a real issue?  I might just have to bite the bullet & buy one, and unless I have the issue, then I am fine.  It's just that $700 price tag combined with only a 15-day return policy.

I would say that the 15 day return issue would not come into play IF this turned out to be a real live problem. Apple could not afford the publicity over a manufacturing fault that they would not fix.
Also depending on your location, consumer law may come into effect.
