More storage and battery life expected for iPhone 7 Plus

iPhone 6 PlusThe largest iteration of Apple’s flagship smartphone will come with a number of upgrades, including a battery with a 3100mAh capacity and storage space that tops out at 256GB, according to sources quoted by MyDrivers.

This means that the iPhone 7 Plus will last longer from a single charge and afford users extra room for all their files and apps than its predecessor. And it seems that Apple will be restricting these benefits exclusively to this phablet, meaning those who have their hearts set on the 4.7 inch version of the iPhone 7 will not get the same practical benefits.

At the moment, the maximum storage available on an iPhone is 128GB and so the doubling of this will be a boon for heavy users, especially since Apple refuses to add a microSD card slot to allow for expansion of memory.

Whether or not Apple will choose to retain the lower end 16GB version of the iPhone when the next generation arrives remains to be seen, but with a September launch on the cards and the iPhone 6C also thought to be on its way to market, this Californian firm should have all its bases covered in 2016.
