There may not be a storage upgrade for the iPhone 14 Pro models after all

The release of four new iPhone 14 models is generally anticipated by the middle of September, but many uncertainties remain about the nature of the upcoming improvements.

The amount of storage seems to be one important feature that will not be enhanced this year (despite earlier speculations to the contrary).

Analyst Jeff Pu from Haitong International (via MacRumors) claims that the Pro models of the next iPhone 14 would have the same storage capacities as the existing iPhones.

There were rumours that Apple’s base storage capacity for the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max will increase, and that the maximum storage capacity may reach 2TB.

However, it seems that internal storage will remain the same as before in light of the new facts.

Modest Improvements

Currently, you may choose between 128GB, 256GB, and 512GB of storage space on the iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 small.

Those are likely to remain unchanged in the corresponding iPhone 14 models (though the mini is getting dropped in favour of an iPhone 14 Max model, if the rumours are to be believed).

According to rumours, Apple’s next iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Max will both include the same A15 Bionic chipset seen in the iPhone 13 series. Apple is unlikely to release a significantly new iPhone this year.

However, there will likely be reasons to upgrade to a new model, including enhanced camera functionality. This applies to both the front-facing camera and the back camera. If Apple follows its typical iPhone release timetable, everything will be unveiled in September.

It will likely be cloudy and rainy today.

Increasing the amount of storage space available on this year’s iPhones would be a great way for Apple to set them apart from their predecessors. Remember that the iPhone X from five years ago was only available with 64GB or 256GB of internal storage, and then consider how much cheaper storage has become in that time.

Internal storage may not be as vital as it once was due to services like Spotify and Netflix that allow users to store their media libraries on the cloud. Keeping data on a local device isn’t as essential.

The quality of cloud syncing services like iCloud and Google Drive has also increased significantly in recent years. It’s simple to set up and takes care of itself automatically to sync your media to the cloud.

Large storage capacity phones should remain on the market, in our opinion, for a variety of reasons, including but not limited to the following: having a lot of media on hand at all times (movies, TV shows, photos, videos), playing games with substantial file sizes, and having a large number of podcasts saved for later. Perhaps the 2TB storage option will be available next year.
