Apple’s press event is now on for September 9, and there’s little doubt that we’re about to see the company’s latest iPhone models. While that much may be taken for granted, we’ve still got plenty of questions about just how these new options will land, and what impact they’ll have on Apple’s plans for sales of existing iPhone models. Those questions include the subject of storage capacity, and we’ve long wondered if and when Apple might drop its 16GB option for new iPhones, just as it already dropped the 8GB option, making 32GB the new minimum. Some rumors have said that 16GB was getting the cut, while others claimed it would return for at least one more year. And now with launch day looming, a new leak attempts to offer some hard evidence that we will indeed see the 16GB iPhone return.
A leak appearing to picture an iPhone 6S packing slip unflinchingly identifies the phone it’s supposed to arrive with as the 16GB edition of Apple’s next iPhone.
Earlier rumors attempted to dismiss certain evidence pointing to the existence of a 16GB iPhone 6S suggested that the 16GB model in question was little more than an internal Apple test unit, but a document like this new one helps establish pretty firmly that the 16GB iPhone 6S will be part of the fleet of iPhone configurations just about to see commercial availability.
