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

Slowly, rumors about the Apple iPhone 7 and the Apple iPhone 7 Plus are beginning to help us piece together the various features that will be available on the device. So far, we expect the next iteration of the iPhone to offer some sort of protection from water, and we also expect the 3.5mm earphone jack to be removed. An accessory for the Lightning port will offer a solution for those who want privacy while listening to audio...

The Galaxy A9 managed to fit a 4000mah Battery, while still retaining a very thin profile manufactures seem to crave.

But surely the iPhone will be the first with 256 GB of internal storage! ;) The iPhone is always the trend setter and first to do everything! /s

Of course. Apple sets the trend and Samsung comes along and copies.

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.

And my z5 premium has 32 gb internal storage and upto 200 gb of SD card, although I'm using 128 gb. Funny thing 16 gb of 6plus is cost a lot more but can only do so much.

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/2015/08/23/256gb-asus-zenfone-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.

Yeah, I agree with you. iPhone battery very good to make BBQ too.

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.

"....sinice they don't run anything in the background" Prove it!!!

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
