Here are your Apple Rumors for today:
Storage: Apple (AAPL) may get its rumored 256GB storage option for the iPhone 7 Plus from SanDisk Corporation (SNDK), reports MacRumors. Images of a 256GB SanDisk NAND flash memory chip were shown and it’s small enough that it could likely fit inside the iPhone 7 Plus. Development of the storage option has reached a point that it’s now smaller in size than the company’s 64GB option. AAPL has used SanDisk for storage options in previous devices.
Hacker: The man allegedly behind the iCloud nude celebrity scandal that plagued Apple in 2014 has been charged, 9to5Mac notes. Ryan Collins, 36, has agreed to plead guilty to a felony violation of the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act. However, it hasn’t been proven that he was the one who shared the images online. He’ll likely face a sentence of 18 months in prison, but it could be as long as five years. Also, if more evidence appears to show he shared the images online, the time of his sentence could increase.
Shell: An image that is claimed to be of the rear shell for the iPhone has been posted online, reports AppleInisder. The rear shell in the image has antenna bands similar to the ones found on the iPhone 6s, but they’ve been moved closer to the edge of the device. This falls in line with previous rumors and leaked images. The rear shell in the image doesn’t have any type of markings on it that would make it possible to identify it as an Apple product.
