Apple will finally Drop the 16GB Storage from the iPhone 7 Lineup
Apple will finally let go of the lowest possible configuration and the most popular configuration of the iPhones in the iPhone 7. The iPhone 7 will let go of the 16GB storage capacity and replace it with a 32GB storage option.
We had reported about this earlier this year, with Apple phasing out 16 GB we might see 32Gb or 64GB as the lowest spec iPhone 7 with the highest going all the way up to 256 GB.
The 16GB model is the most popular, due to its low price. However with iOS updates getting bigger and bigger, it may become impossible for Apple to push updates. With the large size of retina Apps and high res music rumored in the iPhone 7, Along with Apple’s possible launch of a streaming Video service, we see the 16 GB and maybe even the 32Gb variant become redundant.
Several Apple Analysts have also predicted this change in the iPhone 7 lineup . Apple is rumored to launch two sizes of iPhone 7 this year, just like the previous two models. However according to rumors the “plus” moniker might be replaced with a “pro” moniker like iPhone 7 Pro.
The iPhone 7 is rumored to have the same design as current gen iPhones, however, may sport larger than usual camera sensor and lenses, with the “pro” model boasting dual lens setup.
Apple will refresh the iPhone at their usual September event, and may also launch newer iPod models including those of the iPod Touch.
