5.5-inch iPhone 6 May Offer 128GB Option

| News

Apple's rumored 5.5-inch iPhone 6 may sport more storage to go along with its bigger display. The model will reportedly come with a 128GB storage option, up from the 64GB cap on current and previous iPhones, and will be a feature that sets it apart from the rumored 4.7-inch iPhone 6.

News of the higher storage capacity comes courtesy of supply chain sources speaking with the Chinese news site Feng.com (English translation). Other reports claim image stabilization will be another feature exclusive to the 5.5-inch iPhone 6.

Using features for clear differentiation between product models isn't anything new to Apple. The company has used the tactic for years to set apart various Mac models, so it's possible that's part of the design in the new iPhone models, too.

The iPhone 6 hasn't been announced yet, but based on information leaks it looks like the new model will come in 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch versions with improved cameras, better Apple designed A-series processors, a thinner body that matches the iPad Air and iPad mini, and better battery life.

A report also claims Apple will start selling the iPhone 6 on September 19. Since iOS 8 is set for a fall release, that could coincide with the new iPhone launch.

Apple hasn't yet announced new models, or commented on the iPhone 6 rumors.

Assuming Apple does finally offer a 128GB storage option on the iPhone, that'll rock. Limiting it to the 5.5-inch model, however, will suck. Not everyone has giant hands.



Was on the fence on a 5.5” model.  But with the option of 128GB model, I would seriously consider this phone.  I am a memory hog, movies and music.


I’m all for a 128GB version, because it means I don’t need to pay a premium for the 64GB phone I need. :D


Although I have giant hands, unless there is a technical reason I think people should be able to get 128GB on any iPhone grin  Let’s be serious, the iPhone hasn’t caught up to the iPod Classic in storage (from 2006, not to mention the latest at 160GB)
