The iPhone 7 Plus might have features they have been wanting to see in their smartphones.

Apple's next generation iPhone 7 Plus can possibly come in with the biggest storage size and longest battery life yet. Those who cannot wait for information on the next lineup of iPhones will be happy to know that the iPhone 7 Plus might have features they have been wanting to see in their smartphones. 

Chinese website,  MyDrivers speculated that the iPhone 7 Plus may not have the 128gb as the largest storage version. Instead, it may already have the 256gb storage option already. Users need not worry about their iPhones not having enough power to keep up with their usage anymore because the 7 Plus might have a larger 3,100 mAh battery. The iPhone 7 however, might not have these swell features. 

The report does not specify if the iPhone 7 Plus will still be sold in the 16gb base storage. There are some speculations that the base storage will now be at 32gb instead, since people's smartphone usage patterns make 16gb versions inadequate. if the rumored 3,100 mAh batter is true, then the upcoming iPhone 7 Plus will have 12.7% larger battery than the current iPhone 6s Plus' 2,750 mAh battery. There are doubts however, on whether this larger battery can come into fruition if there are also reports claiming the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus will be as thin as the new iPod Touch

The Chinese website concurred with earlier reports that iPhone 7 and 7 Plus  will remain at 4.7-inch and 5.5 screen sizes. Earlier reports on the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus  have stated that it is possible that Apple will finally do away with the 3.5 mm headphone jack on these upcoming models. Instead of this headphone jack, users get to experience an all-in-one Lightning connector. Apple is said to have entertained this idea so that the new phones will be able to have between 6.0mm and 6.5mm thinness and be waterproof at the same time.

Earlier reports have also shed light on the possible performance of the new phones. Naturally, it is expected that both the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus will be faster and more efficient. As such, it is quite possible that the phones will be equipped with a faster TSMC-built A10 chip and Intel 7360 LTE modem. The iPhone 7 Plus may also come with 3GB of RAM.

Earlier this week, the same Chinese website also released news that there will be an iPhone 6C model first before iPhone 7 and 7 Plus are launched. Allegedly, the 6C will have a 1,642 mAh battery and 2GB of RAM.
