iPhone 6 will supposedly be unveiled on September 9 by Apple Inc. We have seen a lot of leaks about it in the recent weeks.

Phone repair company GeekBar‘s leaked schematics suggest Apple Inc might be preparing to release a 128 GB iPhone 6 variant. A part supply list had entries for NAND flash modules from Toshiba and Hynix capabilities of 16 GB, 64 GB and 128 GB. The 32 GB variant is missing from the list and we do not know the reason for its exclusion.

Past rumours have suggested Apple to be working on a 128 GB iPhone variant with a rumour claiming the higher capacity module would only debut in the 5.5 inch model. The same leak also suggested Apple to drop the 16 GB option, introducing a 4.7 inch iPhone 6 variant with two storage options (32 GB and 64 GB) and a 5.5 inch variant with three storage capacities (32, 64, 128 GB).

This new list by GeekBar contradicts that claim, opening door for Apple to add the 128 GB model as a fourth option for users. Apple has 128 GB iOS devices in form of the iPad Air and the iPad Mini with Retina display which are also available in 16, 32, 64 GB options as well.

The 128 GB storage option is yet to make its way to the smaller iOS devices like the iPhone and iPod touch but with the iPhone 6 destined to have bigger screen sizes, we might finally see an iPhone with 128 GB of storage.
