iPhone 4S/iPhone 5 To Come In 16GB, 32GB and 64GB Storage Capacities?

iPhone 5 launch

Couple of days back, revised models of the iPhone 4 and the iPod Touch appeared in Apple’s inventory system and yesterday, the next generation iPhone codenamed N94 also showed up.

9 to 5 Mac now claims that according to their source who had given them information about these new entries in Apple’s inventory system, the N94 next generation iPhone model could come in three storage capacities: 16GB, 32GB and 64GB just like iPad 2.

9 to 5 Mac reports:

Given that we’ve also heard from manufacturing sources that Apple has at least been prototyping 64GB versions of the new iPhone, we would say it’s fairly likely that Apple’s new iPhone will come in 16GB, 32GB, and 64GB capacities; just like the iPad.

However, 9 to 5 Mac is not completely certain as the three different storage capacities could also be 8GB, 16GB and 32GB. We don’t think Apple will launch a 8GB iPhone 4S, as it is also likely to introduce an 8GB iPhone 4 as the new entry-level model, which will replace iPhone 3GS.

We won’t be surprised if iPhone 5/iPhone 4S comes in 64GB storage capacity as we had discovered few months back that Apple has been testing 64GB version of iPhone 4 since 2010.

We hope that this speculation turns out to be accurate.

Photos Of iPhone “4S” Casing Reveal Changes To Antenna System

iPhone 5

We’ve heard rumors that Apple is planning to introduce a cheaper 8GB iPhone 4 for $99 as the new entry level model, along with the iPhone 5. There’re some suggestions that it may be called iPhone 4S (to avoid confusing it with iPhone 4), which will not only come with lower 8GB storage, but could also be made of different components to lower the manufacturing costs.

MacRumors has published images, which they claim are iPhone 4S casing. The images indicate that the so-called iPhone 4S will look like iPhone 4 but come with some minor changes to the antenna system.

MacRumors reports:

The mid-frame images above show that this so-called iPhone 4S will have two antenna breaks at the bottom of the casing. This differs from both the AT&T (GSM) iPhone 4 and Verizon (CDMA) iPhone 4. In AT&T’s iPhone, the antenna breaks are in two spots, along the lower left side and top left sides. On the Verizon’s model they are both at the top sides of the casing.

The antenna breaks are in different position to accomodate different frequencies of GSM and CDMA networks. Apple had received quite a bit of criticism for iPhone 4′s antenna system and it is possible that these changes have been made to reduce the antenna attenuation.

The volume and mute switch are on the same side of the casing like iPhone 4. The other interesting bit is that the bottom frame of this so-called iPhone 4S does not have a defined Home button area, like iPhone 4 or previous generation iPhones. MacRumors says that it is a little hard to conclude for it, but points out that there have been some speculations that Apple maybe changing the home button. According to some rumors, Apple could replace it with a capacitive home button.

So far there has some confusion if the next generation iPhone will be called iPhone 4S or iPhone 5, but as we’re getting more details ahead of the imminent launch, it looks like Apple will introduce the cheaper iPhone 4 and call it iPhone 4S and launch a completely redesigned iPhone, which will be called iPhone 5.

As we’ve mentioned before, though we still love iPhone 4′s form factor and design and believe Apple will still sell tons of 8GB iPhone 4S’ at the $99 price point, we wouldn’t mind a completely redesigned iPhone 5.
