Despite an earlier leak, China based IHS iSuppli analyst claims that iPhone 7 has 32GB in entry-level model.

The most hated aspect the iPhone is the limited 16GB storage on the entry-level model. For years iPhone fans hope at each new iPhone release that Apple gets a grip and puts 32GB in the iPhone as base-line storage. Earlier this month the hopes of Apple changing its ways got crushed by a leak of iPhone 7 components that included a 16GB SanDisk memory chip.

The same leak also showed a 64GB and 256GB memory chip, suggesting that the iPhone 7 will be available in 16GB, 64GB and 256GB options. Over the weekend a post by IHS iSuppli analyst is making its rounds on Weibo. Kevin Wang posted this one liner: "Supply chain research shows that the new iPhone's RAM is 2GB, ROM 32GB onwards."

His research contradicts the rather solid appearing leak. At this point I remain skeptical about Apple upgrading the storage on the $649 iPhone 7.

Apple is expected to reveal the iPhone 7 on September 13. Earlier today we carried at report about Apple changing the iPhone product cycle to tick-tick-tock. The iPhone 7 will mostly re-use the iPhone 6 design and only feature minor adjustments. The decision to stick with the current design is likely contributed to the 10th anniversary iPhone release next year.

The iPhone 7 is expected to feature new single lens and dual lens camera systems, faster CPU and is likely waterproof.
