iPhone 12 to start with 128GB of storage
Apple will up the standard storage configuration on this year’s iPhone 12 lineup to start with 128GB, according to leaker Jon Prosser, who suggests Apple will offer twice as much base storage compared to the entry-level 64GB configuration that has been available in recent years.
Prosser claims Apple’s new iPhone 12 models (5.4-inch and 6.1-inch) will be available with 128GB and 256GB of storage and that the iPhone 12 Pro models (6.1-inch and 6.7-inch) will have 128GB, 256GB, and 512GB storage options.
Additionally, it is expected that the new devices will feature OLED displays and 5G support.
At this point we haven’t had any solid indication that Apple will up the entry-level storage configuration as per the claims today but Prosser does have a strong track record in predicting updates to Apple’s product pipeline. In April we saw Prosser correctly confirm the release date of the long-rumored low-cost iPhone SE, and last week we also saw the leaker announce the imminent release of an updated MacBook Pro, which was released hours later.
The last change to Apple’s standard storage offerings was with the release of the iPhone 8 and iPhone X in 2017, which saw storage upped from 32GB to 64GB after Apple upped from 16GB to 32GB with the iPhone 7.
