Latest Apple leaks reveal next iPhone will not have 16GB models
Another rumour is that the iPhone 7 would have a storage option of 256GB from the current 128GB max in the iPhone 6. Adding storage to phones would not be cheap and to most people a 64GB handset is sufficient. Apple may release a 256GB in the iPad before an iPhone debut.
- You would be able to choose storage of 32, 64, 128 or 256 GB. The 256 GB is not confirmed yet, but rumors say there’s a good chance it would be available especially after Apple has dropped the 16 GB option.
- Regarding the Processing power, iPhone 7 would come with 3GB of RAM
- A10 processor. Apple’s A10 processor will provide a great processing power as well, and is expected to dominate the mobile chipset market this year.

The Specifics(Special Features)
Apple, has one of the greatest smartphone cameras on the market. It seems that for the past three years Apple has been trying to develop an even better dual-lens for the 7. From the rumors, it wouldn’t be ready for the 6s so it would be pushed to being manufactured in the 7.
Specifically the camera will use multiple sensors to improve image quality. This means it can measure depth, add a boost to it’s auto-focus or focus pictures after you’ve taken them. It’s going to also be able to look at objects in 3D and give correct measurements, too. Overall it will be a smaller, smarter camera that makes clearer and more defined pictures.
It’s expected that Apple will make new 4” iPhone named 7c. The details claim that AUO is working with Apple to produce new 4” smartphone screens. From the deal, screens will be shipped in the first quarter of 2016, fitting in with a launch later in the year, most likely with the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. This information also seems to confirm that the screens will not be ready in time for an iPhone 6c launch, suggesting that we will only get two new handsets this year.
With a new SoC in each generation of iPhone, it’s assumed that the iPhone 7 will incorporate an A10 chip, after the A9 that is in the iPhone 6. Basically this will mean a reduction in the required size of the components( i.e. more space in the case for more components or a large battery). Secondly, it take less power and battery life will improve. Thirdly, it will not make as much heat and that’s great for running the gadget at a faster speed with better performance. which either means you can get away with less cooling or that you can run the SoC at a faster speed to increase performance.
With the iPhone 7, Apple may also incorporate wireless charging to the iPhone 7; we can all get rid of the Lightning cable yay! The rumours unfortunately haven’t been confirmed, but we’re definitely crossing our fingers on this one. WIth other companies incorporating the feature it seems like the next big step in smartphone development. It is so much simpler and less stressful (God forbid you need to recharge your phone and can’t find a charger or an outlet).
Improved Battery Life?
There is a job ad looking for hardware engineers to develop new battery designs and iOS engineers. It can be derived that Apple wants iOS engineers to investigate what drains battery in real-time, and develop tricks to save power.
No Increase in Battery SIze
TheiPhone 7 will probably use a consistent battery size, unless there will be extra room for it.
