Apple could only offer OIS and the maximum 128GB storage option on the 5.5-inch iPhone 6 model.
Although there are supposed to be two different models of the iPhone 6 this September, a 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch model, some features could be limited to the larger screen edition.
According to sources familiar with Apple’s supply chain, Apple will only offer a 128GB option on the 5.5-inch handset, while the 4.7-inch version will be capped at 64GB.
Currently, the biggest internal storage option on the iPhone 5S is 64GB, but Apple introduced a 128GB iPad 4 model in January 2013 and extended that larger storage option to the iPad Air as well.
Perhaps Apple will limit the storage options for the smaller iPhone 6 as an attempt to push their new iCloud Drive price plans that offer 5GB of free storage, but you can then purchase additional storage for an annual fee.
Although the 128GB exclusivity may not faze you, those who regularly use their iPhone to take photographs may well be disappointed to hear that the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 could miss out on the optical image stabilisation in the rear camera.
This theory comes from noted KGI analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, who has an excellent track record with Apple predictions. She states that Apple could use OIS to differentiate the two models, with the 4.7-inch model perhaps seen as the lesser of the two.
The iPhone 6 is expected to be officially unveiled in September with a refined, thinner and more rounded design than previous models like the iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C.
It should come with a brand new Apple A8 processor that focuses on improving the battery life of Apple devices and run the upcoming iOS 8 operating system unveiling at WWDC 2014 earlier this year.
