“The new 128GB base storage has been tipped for both the iPhone XI models as well as the successor of iPhone XR”
Apple will likely be launching this year’s iPhone models, expected to be called iPhone XI series, at an event in September and as we approach the launch, leaks are pouring in at an unprecedented rate. The latest leak suggests that the iPhone XI series will come with 128GB of base storage, which will be a first for iPhone models as currently, the base storage starts from 64GB.
Slashleaks contributor Sudhanshu Ambhore in a tweet on Monday said, “2019’s Apple iPhone lineup will start with 128GB ROM storage.” Now, as the source is not well known, we would advise you to take this information with a pinch of salt. However, it shouldn’t come as a surprise if the Cupertino-based company decides to go ahead with 128GB storage on the base variants of this year’s iPhone models as it has moved from 16GB and 32GB base storage rather swiftly and many other flagship phones are now offering 128GB built-in storage with their base variant.
Notably, the tipster has suggested that the change in base storage will apply to both iPhone XI and the iPhone XIR (or whatever the successor to iPhone XR will be called). Currently, the iPhone XS Max and iPhone XS variants are available in 64GB, 256GB, and 512GB, while the iPhone XR is available with 64GB, 128GB, and 256GB built-in storage.
Separately, Apple is set to make some major software announcements at WWDC 2019 later today, where iOS 13 will be unveiled alongside latest iterations of watchOS, tvOS, and MacOS. Stay tuned in for more news on these developments.
