iPhone 6 16GB flash storage

As we march through the last week day of August, and inexorably move closer to September 9, the main focus seems to be on the iPhone 6’s purported logic board. A new image has confirmed what many may have not wanted to believe: that the iPhone 6 will feature 16GB of built-in storage.

The image that indicates the inclusion of 16GB of built-in storage were initially published by Feld & Volk [Instagram], and shared with Sonny Dickson, which have been the source of quite a few leaks regarding the iPhone 6. In this image, which reportedly showcases the logic board for the 4.7-inch iPhone 6, we can see a 16GB flash storage part supplied by Toshiba. It’s the “7” that indicates the 16GB option.

It’s been rumored for some time that Apple would drop the 16GB option from its baseline iPhone lineup with the launch of the iPhone 6, and move to 32GB of storage. However, there have also been reports that Apple will actually not include 32GB of storage at all, and instead rely on 16GB, 64GB and 128GB options this time around. While this leaked image of the logic board doesn’t necessarily confirm a specific scenario where other flash storage options are concerned, it does seem to confirm that 16GB will at least be an option.

This report could be a sign that things are changing for Apple, when it comes to iPhone 6 options for consumers, which have been cited in reports suggesting that Apple could change the pricing for their flagship smartphone. Projections have stated that the iPhone 6’s pricing could see an increase of $100 across the board, with unlocked devices starting at $750.

Apple is scheduled to announce the new iPhone 6 on September 9.
