Apple might also reportedly scrap the 16GB variant altogether and the base variant would have 32GB of internal storage. The new iPhones will also see the integration of Force Touch technology that was first seen on Apple Watch and the new MacBooks. Additionally, it could boast a new design language with different metal casing to ensure that the new iPhones do not bend.
