Something to look forward to.
Apple currently offers the iPhone in 16GB, 64GB and 128GB storage options, even since it released the original iPhone in 2007 the company has never allowed for external expansion via microSD card. You get what you pay for and the only real way to expand storage is to use cloud storage services with the iPhone.
A new report out of Korea suggests that Apple might provide customers with more onboard storage in the next-generation iPhone, storage options greater than 128GB might be on the table, with Apple tapping Samsung to provide the components required to make this happen.
Apparently the company is in talks with Samsung regarding the supply of these components and they’re said to be negotiating pricing. Theoretically this means that the iPhone could offer up to 256GB of onboard storage but one can’t fathom how much the price premium will be on that device.
The next-generation iPhone is not expected to be officially unveiled before the fall.
