Apart from getting rid of the 16GB model, we have received word that the 64GB model of Apple’s iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus could no longer be sold either. According to a Chinese website named Eprice, Apple might also get rid of the 64GB model and replace it with the 128GB model. So now, we could be receiving iPhones and hopefully iPad devices in the following storage models:
There is no word on whether or not Apple will be charging a premium from its consumer base for these storage upgrades, but we are under the impression that the upcoming phones are going to be carry the following prices (these prices are for the unlocked versions being sold in the United States):
- 32GB: $649
- 128GB: $749
- 256GB: $849
iPhone 7 Plus
- 32GB: $749
- 128GB: $849
- 256GB: $949
Both smartphones might feature 2GB of RAM, but there are rumors that Apple could end up placing more RAM inside it. If the upcoming software is further improved, then the company should not be compelled to adding more RAM since it will use up more battery life and from what we have seen from Apple’s practices, they are not too keen on increasing that battery, at least in the 4.7-inch version of its upcoming iPhone. The larger screen has a different scenario altogether.
The larger screen means that Apple has more space to work with and that usually ends with the smartphone possessing a larger battery capacity, which is also the reason why they are more preferred amongst consumers. Apple’s A10 chipset is naturally going to be more powerful than A9 present in iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus and the company will definitely be putting in more upgrades that will conserve additional battery life, especially in situations where you are down to a quarter of the total battery life.
