Most smartphone manufacturers provide 32GB of onboard storage as standard these days, at least in their flagship handsets, but Apple has continued to keep the 16GB model of the iPhone around even though it’s about time that it was ditched. That might finally happen this year when the iPhone 7 is unveiled. A researcher at IHS Technology has predicted that from the iPhone 7 onwards the company’s smartphones will feature 32GB onboard storage as standard.

I am sure that this will be music to the ears of millions of people who buy iPhones, but keep in mind that nothing has been officially confirmed yet so take this with a grain of salt for now.

Kevin Wang, Director of Market Reasearch at IHS Technology, conducted supply chain research which leads him to believe that starting this year, all iPhones will have 32GB storage and 2GB RAM as standard.

I should point out that 2GB RAM is already the standard, look no further than the iPhone 6s and iPhone SE, so it goes without saying that the iPhone 7 will at least have 2GB RAM as well.

However, with media content and apps being absolutely necessary to users, nevermind the fact that 4K video recording can take up a big chunk of storage, 16GB is far too less for today’s requirements. Customers will most certainly be happy should Apple decide that the base model of the new iPhone will have 32GB of storage instead of just 16GB.
