iPhone 7 to feature 32 GB base storage, dropping 16 GB models

If you’ve been following IHS for iPhone rumors, they’ve successfully predicted the next iPhone iteration would be a 4-incher device, true enough with the iPhone SE. Coming again from their reliable supply chain sources, an analyst for IHS has posted on Chinese social media that the iPhone 7 will feature 32 GB storage as the $199 base model, which would mean Apple would finally drop the much-loathed 16 GB SKU from its lineup with its new flagship smartphone expected in the fall.

In addition, the analyst also claims for  a 2GB of RAM on-boarded on the 4.7-inch iPhone 7, same as the iPhone 6s memory.

While,  the larger 5.5 inch iPhone 7 Plus will be fitted with 3GB RAM to handle the processing needs demanded by the dual-camera components, according to KGI analyst Ming-Chi Kuo.

You can take this with a grain of salt, however, the 16GB iPhone on our own view is long overdue for upgrade since this model has been made available back in 2008. The amount of media, 4K video capabilities and the sizes of apps makes the 16GB short for casual users.
