In an article published today in Wall Street Journal, Joanna Stern “answers” a question that always comes up at this time of year: when will the new iPhone be launched? Although she does not know the exact answer, it is not a difficult task to look back and, based on that, take a risk when the “IPhone 7” will reach the market.
In addition to giving her opinion (Stern does not recommend anyone to buy a new iPhone now precisely because of the proximity of the launch, because we are getting more and more with our current devices, among other things), she listed all the supposed news of the future launch of Apple, which include a slightly refined design (with redrawing of the antennas / stripes, less thick and resistant or even waterproof), new cameras (while the 4.7 ″ model will gain a better sensor, the 5.5 ″ would have two rear cameras), 3.5mm input jack for headphones, etc. – so far, nothing new.
But what caught our attention was the “confirmation” (at least according to Stern and WSJ) that the “iPhone 7” will finally put aside the 16GB model, replacing it with that of 32GB! Obviously, we don’t need to talk about how significant this is for customers and iPhone users in times of 4K resolution videos, Live Photos, among other features that require reasonable storage capacity for fun.
It is good to remember that such a rumor is not new and has already been fanned by some sources (like a Chinese vehicle). Coming from Wall Street Journalhowever, the news is very likely to be true.
It took a while, but it looks like it will now! ??
