Meanwhile in the ongoing barrage of iPhone 7 rumours two new reports centred on the device’s possible new features, surfaced this week.
The first of those claimed that the device would carry fast-charging technology that could see users lives made a lot easier by reducing charging times, while the second cited that the expected and premium iPhone 7 Plus could land with a 256GB option.
Claims that Apple could be readying to make a 256GB storage configuration available for its next update to the iPhone, arrive via DigiTimes:
“NAND flash vendors have increased chip prices citing strong demand for new smartphones particularly the iPhone 7 featuring up to 256GB of storage, according to industry sources,” DigiTimes said, as it noted that prices for the storage modules are expected to “keep soaring” until year’s end.

According to the article’s quoted tweet, Apple’s next iPhone will carry the ability to handle ‘at least 5-volt, 2-amp’ charging. This differs from current chargers, it says, which are rated at just one amp.
Speculation that the company could be ready to officially boost the iPhone’s charging times was further fuelled by the tweeting of a separate photo. The photo is thought to show the distinct differences between the charging internals that feature inside the iPhone 6S, versus the ones that are expected to feature in the forthcoming iPhone 7.
Apple is currently anticipated to unveil its next update to the iPhone at its first-ever media event to be held at its newly built on-campus auditorium – sometime next month.
