Leaked schematics show the iPhone 6 could come with a 128GB option, but not 32GB

In the latest of a seemingly endless number of schematic leaks, a pair of documents obtained by GeekBar indicate that the next iPhone 6 might not come in the usual 16GB, 32GB, and 64GB varieties.

Rather, it’ll come in three flavors. 16GB. 64GB. And 128GB. But surprisingly, no 32GB.

The leaked documents suggest the iPhone 6 will have 16GB memory modules supplied by Toshiba and Hynix, while the 64GB modules will come from Hynix, Toshiba, and Sandisc. The 128GB modules, on the other hand, will come exclusively from Toshiba.

If these leaked schematics are true, it implies that Apple might drop the 32GB iPhone from its iPhone 6 line-up, offering a 16GB model for $199, then jumping to 64GB of storage for the $299 tier.

That seems strange: you’d think that Apple would instead make a 32GB iPhone the baseline if it was dead set on keeping only three pricing tiers for the next iPhone. But perhaps Apple instead hopes to expand the number of iPhone 6 storage tiers to four, and this leaked schematic is simply missing the 32GB modules, for whatever reason.

Whatever the case, we should know all starting September 9th.
