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...

For 256 GB of SSD class storage inside a phone that's actualy reasonable. But I think Apple will offer it for cheaper than that.

This is a silent message 'not to expect any new ground breaking technological breakthroughs or any new mouth watering tech, but to keep you interested, we'll deliver a phone with a bump in specs'.....Korean style, but then, I'm not complaining, the mobile phone is doing more than what we all were expecting it to do a few years ago. Somewhere, the limitations will surely creep in. All the best to all the tech Companies in 2016.

There is a great difference between worry and concern. A worried person sees a problem, and a concerned person solves a problem.

iPhone 7 looks like a huge improvement is comming. Like a torrent of fresh air. All new design, way, way thinner than anything before, coming with loads of bold decisions others just fear to do. And yet they look to cram in 256GB of storage and a bigger battery which is great. What about the regular 7 battery capacity ? At very least it has to be bigger than 7C/6C, which is kind of great, but i expect more like the biggest battery ever put into an iPhone. Anyway, with some big efficiency improvements Apple is cooking, the next iPhone(s) will have really great battery life.

Hrm, I wonder if they will increase the base option from 16 gb to 32gb then, or if 256gb will just be an extra version.....and very..very expensive one probably at that.

I wonder if TechieXP has karpaltunnel. Gee wiz, it takes 3 thumb flicks just to scroll past one of his rants.

The guy is one of the biggest tards on this website. The amazing thing is that he actually believes most of the bullsh*t he spews. Seriously, how does a grown man have the time to post all that crap & sound so stupid doing it? It's ridiculous.

Agreed yo. I just flick scroll by whatever he posts now, even his short ones. Just the same old anti Apple junk, that hasn't changed one person's mind about what they're going to buy.

"we now expect Apple to bump the capacity of the battery on the iPhone 7 Plus to 3100mAh"- LARGER BATTERY!!!! PA is a joker LOL. what a news! we really surprised!!!! Apple users need to move with a charger or power bank. Smartphone world need to do a loooot of work on battery life. though android moved ahead significantly.

Can people just not argue for once? I mean, I'm all for Android but would honestly use a 6S just for it's nice design and that Force Touch. Good for Apple if they do this, even though Asus did the 256GB thing first.

Honestly, I wouldn't care about the spec jump compared to the smaller model if it's bezels are still as large as the iPhone 6 series.

where is that son of a samsung and google, techieXP, sometimes say megapixel don't count and sometimes say megapixel count, just like 64 bit was rushed by apple, finger print was rushed by apple, force touch was rushed by apple, the thing he don't know that his father samsung works under apple for chips and other parts and also google os is based on java, have you seen the first android phones they tried to compete with the blackberry not apple, android was designed to work with keyboard, so lol you are the sickest man, always complaining apple and telling that apple copied that and rushed incomplete like google, I m sure that you love your father samsung and mother google, so keep supporting your dad and mom.
