The next iPhone might not be as dramatically different as many had hoped, but it might come with a feature that many have been asking for: more storage space.


That’s Joanna Stern’s report to The Wall Street Journal, who writes that Apple is going to change its mind and release the base model iPhone with 32GB of storage instead of 16GB. She also reports that we might get a 256GB iPhone model into the mix.
