Rumored Apple pricing shows 256GB iPhone, pricier “Pro” line

An unconfirmed leak from Weibo shows that alleged iPhone 7 pricing that has a new 256GB model will almost retain pricing of the current top of the line 128GB model, 9to5Mac reports.

A new 256GB model iPhone to replace the current top of the range 128GB model for iPhone 6 has been rumored for a few months now with one leak claiming to show components being prepared for 16GB, 64GB, and 265GB models, although a separate report claimed Apple would drop the 16GB base model and offer a 32GB model to start. The rumored pricing below is allegedly showing a lineup that would include 32GB, 64GB, and 265GB models for the iPhone 7 and 32GB, 128GB, and 256GB models for the iPhone 7 Plus and a new iPhone Pro line.

The reference to a new “Pro” line for the iPhone 7 in addition to standard iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus models isn’t exactly new, 9to5Mac says. Alleged leak schematics that appeared in a Japanese magazine a couple months back claimed to show an “iPhone 7 Pro” model sporting a dual-camera system and Smart Connector functionality.

The Pro line would be priced at a premium of around $150 on top of the iPhone 7 Plus line according to the rumored pricing.
