iPhone 7 Plus May Include 256GB Option, Larger 3,100 mAh Battery

According to Chinese website MyDrivers, Apple’s next-generation iPhone 7 Plus may include a 256GB storage option and a larger 3,100 mAh battery.

Both of these features will be marketed as the two differentiating features over the smaller iPhone 7. The report doesn’t mention if the iPhone 7 Plus will still be available in a 16GB option, or if Apple will opt for larger storage options, for instance starting at 32GB.

The claimed 3,100 mAh battery would be approximately 12.7% larger than the iPhone 6s Plus’s 2,750 mAh battery, but the rumour is questionable following reports claiming the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus will be nearly as thin as the new iPod touch.

The report also supports the previous rumours claiming the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus will retain 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch screen sizes respectively, but does not offer any other new details about the smartphones.

Chinese website MyDrivers has a mixed track record at reporting on Apple’s upcoming product plans, so this rumour should be treated with caution until or unless other reports substantiate these claims.

Apple may remove the 3.5mm headphone jack on the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus in favour of an all-in-one Lightning connector, possibly helping the smartphones achieve between 6.0mm and 6.5mm thinness and a waterproof design. The devices may also have a faster TSMC-built A10 chip, Intel 7360 LTE modem, and non-metallic casing with hidden antenna bands.

    NO MORE THIN. Double the current thickness please and then make use of that extra space.

  • Ashley Mann

    Tim has got to know by now, bigger is better. For the iPhone too.

  • Daniel Bley

    As long as they stop the 16Gb entry level… that’s fine!

  • LouisDC

    I seriously hope they don’t remove the headphone jack, that would suck really hard. I don’t want to carry another adapter or have to buy the Apple version of headphones…

  • Léonard Bonfils

    They will never double the thickness.

    Yea you’re right. These iPad things will never take off and what kind of name is IPad by the way either….
    Stylus? No we’ll never have one ever.

  • KIII
