Rumors: Apple iPhone 7 to Ditch 16 GB Variant in Favor of 32 GB Variant

iPhone 7

It seems that the next Apple iPhone will completely do away with the 16 GB storage option.

Recent rumors suggest that the Apple iPhone 7, which is said to be launched in September, will come with 32 GB as standard. The iPhone is currently sold in three versions based on the internal storage – 16 GB, 64 GB, and 128 GB.There is a substantial difference between the base and the main variant in terms of storage. Apart from filling this gap, the iPhone 7 could also be welcomed into the new age where 16 GB storage simply does not cut it.

This may result in a slight increase in the price of the base variants of the iPhone 7, but Apple fans should rejoice at this prospect. Even though the iOS does not take up a significant chunk of the internal storage, it is still going to eat up much of the 16 GB if it was offered. Doing away with this option and starting from 32 GB will be a switch in the right direction since the iPhones have not supported microSD cards. Android phones have largely been in favor of external memory card support, which would allow the user to expand storage at a later stage.

There are also suggestions that the new iPhone 7 will come with 2 GB of RAM rather than the 3 GB of RAM initially suggested. The amount of RAM, if the new rumors are taken into account, will be similar to the amount offered on the iPhone 6S. However, this will not be a huge dampener given that the iPhones have always been a very efficient compared with their android counterparts.The only model that could get this new amount of RAM could be the larger iPhone 7 Plus version with a 5.5-inch screen. This phone is also expected to be the one to get dual camera setup, which has been one of the talking points of the iPhone leaks so far.

Apple is also rumored to be preparing a third variant of the iPhone. This model could be named as the iPhone 7 Pro and it may come with a stylus. The launch of the device could have been inspired by the success of the iPad Pro, which comes with a stylus that Apple prefers to call as Apple Pencil. The phone is expected to be launched in the first few weeks of September.
