IHS: 32GB iPhone 7 will be baseline
The iPhone is a very expensive mobile device that can come with very little native storage. Complaint after complaint from the tech media has criticized Cupertino and several other manufacturers for the folly of its baseline memory option of 16GB.
To the healthy smartphone user with an Apple in their eye, this rumor should be a relief.
Kevin Wang directs market research at IHS Technology, a Chinese research firm. He also has a Weibo account. And based on his research, Wang told microbloggers all around that the “new iPhone’s RAM will still be 2GB, ROM starts from 32GB.”
As application sizes continue to grow and cameras pump out pictures to a cloud that isn’t growing fast enough, this development is appreciated if true. That’s a big “if,” though — we’ve seen similar rumors before.
We just wonder if Apple can justify an extra $50 or even $100 price adjustment with this move. We should also say that what typically goes for the iPhone 7, so it shall go for the iPhone 7 Plus — and maybe the iPhone 7 Pro.
We shall see.
