    Note: app updated to support iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus and iOS 10.

    Defintitely interested in this, there were some rumbles last year that the 16GB iPhone 6S was half the speed of the 64GB in NAND performance.

    Does it surprise you? MacBook Air and Pro laptops ship with SSDs from different manufacturers. If you purchase a higher capacity model, you're more likely to get the "desirable" SSD. In real world usage they're all close enough.

    Does anyone have a 32 GB that they can benchmark? So far the 256GB version seems to have noticeably faster write speeds.

    Whoa. Those scores are way slower then the 128GB and 256GB versions. I wonder how the 32GB versions would do using Phone Doctor?

    When you launch apps, you rely massively on the NAND. This means that the 32GB 7 will be noticeably slower then the 128 and 256 at launching apps.

    So, were the read speeds really that much faster on 6S (1700) than a 7 (1200)? Write speeds do seem to be much faster on the 7 though.
    Can the OP please compile the results on the first post, just so it is easier to compare?

    I think that we should all use phone doctor, it has support for newer phones and seems to be more consistent.
