‘iPhone 7’ to Ship With Base Storage of 32GB [Report]

According to Kevin Wang, the Director of Market Research at IHS Technology on posting on Weibo, the upcoming ‘iPhone 7’ it will be equipped with 2GB of RAM and minimum internal storage of 32GB (via HDBlog.it). He seems to have made the claim after doing some “supply chain research”, suggesting that the next generation iPhones could mark the end of the 16GB storage models.


The current generation iPhones are already running 2GB of RAM, the iPhone 6s was first, then the iPhone SE confirmed it. However the upgraded storage is great news, since 16GB isn’t nearly enough for a flagship smartphone, especially one that is capable of shooting 4K video.

In the past, there have been rumours that the ‘iPhone 7 Plus’ will top out at 256GB storage, so it will be interesting to see what storage options Apple decides to offer.

    4K video filming on a 16 GB non upgradable device is ridiculous. Even the 6 should never have offered a 16 GB option.

    FINALLY that ludicrous amount of storage has been put to bed. Now about 32 GB……….

    Why do all us readers care? We all know we’re not getting an entry level storage no matter what the capacity is!

  • FragilityG4

    Agreed! 4K is ridiculous! Hahaha

    The real question is, why would someone buy a 16GB device if they know they’ll do a lot of 4K videos?

  • Corey Beazer

    There will always be people who want to buy the cheapest version of the “new thing”

    those of us that are the family IT guys care when your mom asks why she cant take any more pictures 😉

    I just told my mom to pay the $1.29/month for 50GB iCloud space!

    my moms head explodes when i ask her if she tried a different browser on her computer

    sadly this would only add another layer of confusion 😀

    Then that’s not anyone’s problem but their own.

    There’s about 10GB left after iOS on a 16GB device, which is enough room for over 3000 pics. I know cause I’m also the family IT guy. Lucky for me, I spent the time and taught my mom how to simply drag and drop the pics to a computer and delete some photos.

    not all moms are teachable
