Leaked Document Shows iPhone 7 Will Have 256GB of Internal Storage – 64GB Omitted From the Lineup?


With Apple’s previous generation iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus coming with 128GB of internal storage, iPhone 7 is expected to get a variety of upgrades, with one notable feature was getting a bump in internal memory. Here, the latest document shows that the upcoming smartphone could have its maximum storage model’s capacity increased to 256GB, while removing one capacity model from the lineup.

32GB Is Going to Be the Base Storage Model of iPhone 7 – NAND Flash Memory Being Manufactured by Toshiba According to Leaked Document Details

According to the details presented in the leaked document, iPhone 7 will be available to purchase in the following storage models:

  • 32GB
  • 128GB
  • 256GB

The 64GB model does not look to be included from this lineup, and if you ask us from a business standpoint, it happens to be very prudent decision from Apple, despite the fact that consumers will be required to pay a premium for every time they want to pick a higher storage model. It appears that Toshiba is mass producing the company’s flash memory chips and we will finally be breathing a sigh of relief that the 16GB storage is not present in this list.

Apple has used 16GB of flash memory for the longest period, and if the rumor ends up being true that the tech giant will end up removing the 3.5mm headphone jack, then it will be an even better decision if the smartphone does not get shipped in the 16GB storage capacity. 16GB is far too minuscule to be present in a device that’s going to fetch for $649 for the unlocked base model, so these changes, if true, will definitely be a welcome sight from the company.

32GB, though not the most attractive of numbers when it comes to storage, and that to present in smartphones that are void of storage expansion features, is miles better than the dreaded 16GB figure. Let us hope that the leaked document ends up delivering the truth when Apple makes the official announcement of iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus next month. What are your thoughts on the matter?
