New analysis coming from TrendForce confirms recent reports that Apple is planning to offer a 256GB version of the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus models along with the 128GB storage option. Apple is expected to give up on the 64GB storage version. The report also reveals that the upcoming devices could feature 32GB of memory as their base models, thus getting rid of the 16GB version altogether.
While it is a well-known fact that MacBooks charge iPhones faster than a typical laptop, the leaked photos of the upcoming MacBook Pro line-up indicates that it would havea total of four USB-C ports, two on each side of the device. In other words, these ports available on the next-generation MacBook Pro can be used for charging, data transfers, external monitors and basically everything that involves external connectivity including iPhone charging.
The upcoming iPhone 7 will get rid of the USB and bring in Lightning cable and replace it with a USB-C to Lightning version that would allow users to charge their phones using the new MacBook’s USB-C ports.
To sum it all up and in the case of all things being equal as expected,Apple is likely to unveil the new iPhone 7 models in September this year.
