Early this January, there was rumors about the iPhone 7 Plus, could possibly carry a 3,100 mAh battery with up to 256 GB of storage space. The blog who leaked the news just filter an image of the flash memory Sandisk 256GB that could integrate the new generation of the Plus model and that will be released next September as usual. In the picture above, you can see the 256 GB chip at the top and at the bottom the size of 64 GB of flash memory .
It is not the first time that Apple plans on using Sandisk flash memory on its devices. Previously the Cupertino have used these chips in the iPhone 5, iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. While other models have been selected manufacturer Samsung, SK Hynix and Toshiba.
As we can see in the picture that heads this article, Scandisk has reduced the size of the flash memory of 256 GB compared to the previous model of 64 GB, which facilitates its implementation in the next iPhone in July Pus as pointing all rumors will be smaller than the current model, thanks to the disappearance of a millimeter jack 3.5 mm.
It seems clear that Apple will give up once and for all to the base 16GB that has become almost the last option for all users due to the small size of actual storage, but the most logical the company would have to offer the basic model with at least 32 GB of memory, 128 GB and 256 GB respecting the prices of the devices.
