Report: iPhone 7 Plus to have 256GB model, larger battery

A new report claims that Apple’s upcoming iPhone 7 Plus will have an larger 256GB option, in addition to a bigger battery, further differentiating the larger 5.5” iPhone from the 4.7” iPhone 7. The report comes from Chinese site MyDrivers — the site also recently reported that a 4” iPhone will be arriving in April. It’s unclear if all the iPhone 7 Plus’ base storage capacities would increase, or if the 256GB will simply be an extra model. (We personally wouldn’t mind seeing both new iPhone 7 models starting at a 32GB base capacity at least, given the space now needed for larger apps and photos.) The larger battery claim — that the 7 Plus will get a bump to 3100 mAh from its current 2750 mAh battery in the iPhone 6s Plus — seems questionable, given Apple’s penchant for thinness, though the company could seek improved battery life through a number of other ways, as well.
