It’s about time – Apple looks set to ditch the most annoying feature of its flagship handset, the 16GB version.
That’s if The Wall Street Journal is to be believed, which indicates the iPhone 7 will start at 32GB instead of the half-capacity version, which seemingly filled up after syncing across seven songs and one photo album.
According to the source, the next iPhone will come in 32GB, 128GB and 256GB models. While this is likely due to the expected camera improvements in the new phone, Apple has been two years behind Android phones when it comes to minimum storage capacity.
As with every swirling iPhone rumour, we won’t know for certain until Apple introduces the device. If consistent hints are anything to go by, though, the company will likely bring smaller changes to the table before an overhaul in 2017.
The news will no doubt be welcomed by those looking to upgrade this autumn, with users set to be able to actually use their phones for fun things like taking photos, downloading apps and streaming media offline.
Let’s just hope this rumour doesn’t fall within the pile that proves to be untrue, and we can finally wave an easy goodbye to the 16GB iPhone.
