Leak: Apple's iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max could get a massive storage upgrade
Apple's iPhone 13 smartphones have been out on the market for barely a week, but there are already rumors and leaks regarding the upcoming iPhone 14 generation and some of its most anticipated upgrades. For its new flagships, the Cupertino-based company supposedly plans to upgrade the available storage configurations including one massive top-of-the-line storage capacity that is usually only found in notebooks.
According to an article by MacRumors, a sketchy Chinese website expects Apple to release an iPhone 14 Pro configuration with 2TB of internal storage. In comparison to the recently released iPhone 13 Pro, which for the first time ever is offered with 1TB of storage, that would mean another doubling of the capacity of its largest storage configuration. The additional storage would certainly come in handy for the huge ProRes video files that can quickly fill up the storage of the iPhone 13 Pro within minutes.
This speculative storage upgrade is purportedly made possible by Apple's switch to modern QLC flash storage. A previous DigiTimes rumor has also anticipated this change, but it did not mention the existence of a 2TB model. In the end, a possible iPhone 14 Pro Max with 2TB of storage would almost certainly break the record for the most expensive iPhone ever, given that the iPhone 13 Pro Max with 1TB of storage is already priced at US$1,599 on Amazon.
