What Apple is Hiding with iPhone 7?

what-apple-does-not-want-you-to-knowUsers who went with the affordable cost and got the iPhone 7 32GB are in for a disappointment. The phones come with iOS and stocked apps which take up 18GB of storage space already resulting in little space for the user to use. The chips in a lower-capacity storage work slower than higher capacity storages. Because the phone has a lower-capacity storage the phone performs slower than the 128GB and 256GB models.

The SSD and the number of parallel channels that fits inside the SSD determine the speed of an iPhone and all mobile devices. High capacity storages have a lot more channels than low capacity. More of the channels the faster the speed is. The GB in a storage is only a determination of the phone’s write speed. Compared to write speed, the read speed is more important in a phone because It decides how speedy a phone starts up or how fast an app begins.

The author reported an experiment using Basemark OS II and the 32GB and 128GB iPhone 7. He reported findings of write speed having an impact on the iPhones storage capacity. Although a phone’s write speed comes second in place to read speed, write speed plays a significant role in a phone. Whenever you take a video or pictures, your phone writes that data to the local storage.  Your phone has the capacity to do this due to the SSDs’ write procedure. For example, recording an HD movie is the maximum amount of work for a write job on a phone. This action only uses a write speed of 30MBps in bandwidth, which is far from any phone’s write speed limit.

This confirmed that having a faster write speed wouldn’t make any difference in a phone. But when a mobile device reaches its maximum capacity, the write speed goes slower. In the end, reading the data from the drive is typically easy. An example of this would be when you connect your phone’s lightning cable to a computer. Once the data begins transferring the speed is all dependent upon how fast the connection standard is. For the iPhone 7, the most common is the USB 2.0. The USB 2.0 supports the speed of the transferring of data up to 60MBps. In other words, USB 2.0 has a slower speed of transferring than an actual phone’s SSD.

SSDs which stand for solid-state storage devices can write data in over 100 megabytes/second. All mobile devices write data to the phone’s SSD. The catch is that to write data the SSDs entail a lot of free space. But the reason for this is write amplification; this is an event that occurs when the approximate amount of written physical data is more than the total of logical data that is written by the computer. When the computer reaches the maximum amount of storage, the write speed goes slower. This issue applies not only to the 32GB but also the 128GB and 256GB iPhone models. The only difference is that it takes longer for the higher GB models’ storage to fill up.
