‘Industry sources’ remind us the iPhone 7 is likely coming with up to 256GB storage
Fresh rumors? At this point, nothing about the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus, which will apparently be called exactly that after all, is really fresh anymore. Every “new” speculative report confirms, reiterates, nuances or flat-out contradicts previously relayed intel or gossip, and as irritating as it may feel, we’re left going round in circles until Apple puts us out of our misery with a formal announcement in a few weeks.
Notoriously hit-and-miss “industry sources” quoted by Digitimes today send us on a short time travel back to January, then early June, and late June as well, echoing the very strong possibility of internal storage options capping off at a massive 256GB this year.
The iPhone 6s and 6s Plus, mind you, start with a meager 16 gig configuration, going up to 128, while mid-tier variants can accommodate 64GB of data, cloud storage not included. The full layout could change as far as the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus are concerned, 32GB replacing the entry-level 16 model, and 256 either demoting the 128GB-er to the middle class, or the latter getting the axe entirely, with a 64 gig version retained between the 32 and 256.
It’s also possible the 2016 iPhones will come in four storage derivations, or perhaps it’s just the plus-sized, dual rear camera-toting variant that’s supposed to offer 256GB of digital hoarding room. See, there are still questions left unanswered.
