It hasn't been long since Apple launched both the iPhone 6S and the iPhone 6S Plus in grand fashion, but Cupertino is one to capitalize on its huge success and as such follows its pattern of releasing a new iPhone on a yearly basis. As of late, the next generation of iPhone is reported to have a slew of improvements that include a much bigger storage and a heftier battery life to once again please its fans around the world.
According to a new report from Chinese website MyDrivers, Apple's next update to its venerable iPhone includes a new 256GB storage configuration, as well as a large 3,100mAh battery rating, thus providing more media storage space and longer screen times for people who want to bring their movies and music with them and play them for longer durations.
It's also important to note that both the iPhone 6S and the iPhone 6S Plus featured smaller battery ratings than its predecessors, the iPhone 6 and the iPhone 6 Plus. However, Apple claims that the 'S' cycle of the iPhone 6 duos can deliver the same battery life as the company has already improved power efficiency.
Battery life has been the one underlying issue that iPhones have been trying to cope with. Apple equipping the iPhone 7 with a 3,100mAh would give it about a 10 percent increase over the iPhone 6S' 2,750mAh battery rating. However, a higher battery rating doesn't actually translate to longer screen time as the power draw should also be taken into account.
Furthermore, with 16GB of storage for the iPhone becoming less usable in today's standards, Apple could also be changing up the storage configurations it will offer for the upcoming iPhone 7. With captured images, high definition and 4K videos, as well as apps taking more space today, 16GB of storage would now seem paltry than it was years before.
