While the tech world has been rather obsessed with CES this week, fresh rumours have emerged from China about the iPhone 7. Apple normally adopts a 2 year cycle of introducing new handsets, with the years in between saved for iterative updates. If that pattern is to be followed, and there’s no reason to suggest otherwise, then we should see the wraps taken off the iPhone 7 at some point in 2016. Like all big releases, the rumour mills begin early and if the last few years are anything to go by, they are generally quite accurate. The latest rumours suggest that we will see an iPhone with 256GB storage for the first time (I dread what the price will be if correct…), though this storage size will only be on the iPhone 7+ model. The same site also says the new phones will have bigger batteries. These rumours build upon earlier reports that 3 different sized iPhones will be released: 4″, 4.7″ and 5.5″. Would a larger capacity iPhone, which would not doubt retail for upwards of £700, tempt readers?
