iPhone 8 could come with 512GB storage

Apple looks set to massively boost the storage available on the soon-to-land iPhone 8, offering up to 512GB of space for files, apps, games and video.

A report from China suggests that the California company will offer 64GB, 256GB and 512GB editions of the iPhone 8.

Want more iPhone 8 news? We've collated all the speculation for our rumours round-up.

The current iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus are available in 32GB, 128GB and 256GB options.

Boosting storage by so much will be seen as a no-brainer by Apple, which harbours plans to allow developers to build augmented reality apps and add–ons which use its new facial recognition software.

Any apps utilising this new tech are likely to use up a huge amount of space. Add to that Apple's new Files app for storing documents, plus the increasing need to find space for 4K videos, either recorded on the phone or downloaded from streaming services, and the need for more room is clear.

Samsung’s just-announced Galaxy Note 8 offers 256GB microSD expansion, something which Apple has never offered with the iPhone 8. A large scale 512GB edition would counter Samsung’s threat.

Any device with 512GB of storage would prove costly, with a price higher than £1,000 very likely.
