Goodbye 128GB iPhones: iPhone 15 Could Start With 256GB Storage, Going All The Way Up To 2TB

Apple Inc. AAPL could finally upgrade the storage in the base model of the upcoming iPhone 15 series to 256GB storage, ditching the paltry 128GB storage.

What Happened: As the iPhone 15 launch draws closer, new reports suggest that Apple could double the storage to 256GB from 128GB in the base models of its next flagship phone.

"This is the supplier source. The Apple iPhone 15 Pro and Max models will have a new 2-tera option this time," said Korean blogger yeux1122.

Another leak on the Chinese social networking platform Weibo suggests that the base storage could bump to 256GB.

This would considerably increase storage space across all four tiers – 128GB to 256GB, 256GB to 512GB, 512GB to 1TB, and 1TB to 2TB.

That's right – a 2TB iPhone. However, given the sources, we suggest you take this with a grain of salt.

Smell Test Suggests It Could Be Wishful Thinking: We have not heard of any storage bump from any prominent sources yet, so this could end up being more wishful thinking than anything else.

While the Korean blogger is known for providing good enough leaks, their track record could be better than that of people like Mark Gurman or Ming-Chi Kuo.

One of the justifications behind this is that Apple is expected to hike the price of the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max by at least $100. This justifies the storage bump, too, the sources say. However, it remains to be seen if Apple thinks the same way, too.
