Larger battery coming to Apple iPhone 7 Plus along with 256GB of internal storage?

Another new rumor can be added to the list, this one also involving the larger screened iPhone 7 Plus. According to a report out of China published today, Apple will be offering a version of the phone with 256GB of native storage. That is double the 128GB that tops the amount of internal memory available on the Apple iPhone 6s and Apple iPhone 6s Plus. To put that in perspective, the OG Apple iPhone offered buyers 4GB, 8GB or 16GB of ROM.
In addition, we now expect Apple to bump the capacity of the battery on the iPhone 7 Plus to 3100mAh from the 2750mAh power plant currently employed on the iPhone 6s Plus. That is nearly a 13% increase in the capacity of the power plant inside the phone.
Even though a recent China Mobile road map showed that a 4-inch Apple iPhone 7c might be released in April, we don't expect to see the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus to see the light of day until September.

Really? Samsung was one of the first to offer 32GB of storage on the S. Apple sets a trend? Really? God you guys are the most worthless idiots on the face of the planet. It's not copying when the comp e etshing are available to buy. How can it be copying when Samsung makes storage already at various sizes for themselves and others too? Apple sets trends. Really?

How many phones you think are going to come out between now and September? Also it's just a rumor. As stingy as Apple is on storage I don't even see a 256GB modwl. Especially considering it would costs over 1000's.

Apple is never 1st on anything. They are copycat, steal, improve and claim as theirs own innovation. Asus Zenfone 2 4GB RAM and 256GB storage: http://pocketnow.com/2015/08/2

no that goes to the asus zenphone 2 deluxe model if im not mistaken, it came with 256gb native storage, there is also the v2 sagus i think its called which although not having 256gb on board storage, can take 2 x 2oogb micro sd cards and has 64gb built in, i dont even wanna imagine what a 256gb iphone 7 plus would cost, but it would be disgraceful

You even know what are you talking about ? IPhone batteries can't be compared to Android. IPhone smaller battery is better than most Android phones.

No offense or anything, but iPhone battery size is smaller and worse than most android phones. But if you don't use your phone that much, than iOS devices usaally do really well sinice they don't run anything in the background.

Sorry to chime in but even though you are correct here... I understand what he meant... Of course the iPhones run many things on the background, and they allow for certain apps to keep services alive... otherwise IM wouldn't work, neither would GPS or music while doing something else... However compared to how Android handles Multi Tasking, Apple solution is still severely limited... and it shows. You still can't open a web page and go do something else while it load... You can't have Floating apps that improves multitasking A LOT... in fact, after using Sony's Small Apps I wouldn't switch to Apple at all until they implement something similar (and not only to the latest iPad).... in compact phones it makes more sense floating apps than multi-window (the later is better for Phablets) So in his defense, "they don't run anything in the background" is incorrect, but it still a valid point when compared relatively to Android
