According to multiple rumors, Apple is said to be planning on introducing 256GB as a storage option for its iPhones this year. This has been supported by the fact that Apple also recently introduced a 2TB tier to its iCloud plan, which would obviously go a long way for 256GB users who want to completely backup their device.
Now thanks to the folks at Techtastic.nl (via Apple Insider), they have managed to get their hands on what appears to be packaging information for the iPhone 7 Plus, and as you can see in the image above, it shows that the iPhone 7 Plus will come with a 256GB storage option. Now we’re not sure if this is just limited to the Plus model, but it would be unlike Apple to split up their products that way, so maybe not.
Also what’s interesting is that this packaging information also confirms that the iPhone 7 will be ditching the headphone jack. It also confirms that the iPhone 7 will come with new pair of headphones with a Lightning connector, as well as a Lightning to 3.5mm adapter, meaning that right out of the box you won’t be inconvenienced with a lack of compatible headphones, but you also have the choice of using your existing headphones without having to buy the accessory yourself.
Admittedly we are bit bummed that it did not come packaged with wireless earphones, but maybe that would have been a bit too expensive for Apple. In any case take it with a grain of salt, but check back with us next week for the official details.
