Apple CPU has always been tailored made for iOS. At the same time iOS requires less resources and the lower resolution displays also help a lot. I don't mind loosing some milliseconds while doing my tasks but I have always preferred better multitasking (Android), that's what the RAM is for.
I really feel like apple is slowly milking their fans, anyways after 2gb ram, IPhone 7 will have a higher than 8mp camera that will be called revolutionary again...
meow-, 05 Mar 20152gb? wow, what a improvement !keep in mind, the 1gb of ram was faster then the note 4 which had 3gb of ram.
shut it with the back and forth bickering. i swear you guys are a bunch of 12 year-old's who need to get over themselves.
derunningman, 05 Mar 2015Iphone doesnt need more than 1 GB RAM, ifans said.
Apple dont be stupid, IOS already lag free... moreand yes , ios dont need more ram ... but if apple want put more ram , we just accept it .. not bash it ~
not like android fan , hunger more core and ram ... even 8 core and 6gb ram , for them is not enough ~~
Anonymous, 04 Mar 2015How much ram does it have now? 512MB?how much ram android have now ? 10gb ? is that enough ?
DanGogh, 05 Mar 2015I guess that's why Apple benchmarks are always lower than Android phones.not by far tho. and thats with 1GB ram and single core vs 3GB ram and octacore and all that BS LOL
I predicted this. Not only isit about the time span they would introduce some upgrades. But also the competition is going to force their hands.
Plus they dont want to lose all the increased sales from the 6/+.
So 2GB ram is happening....finally...which will helpstability a lot. Though if they dont fix the software which they claim will focus on stability.....even supposedly they always have...it wont matter as much.
Plus it will be the downfall of older devices.
There will be a bigger update in SoC this year.
They will probably opt for Samsung UFS II storage.
There will most likely finally be a camera update. I hope foe the users its still if 1.4Um pixels. Just increased sensor size with few more pixels. And there is a strong chance of 4k. They might even finally be give stereo recording at 128k.
And possibly updates speaker..Among more notable things.
The sad part is most of it will be outdated incremental. But in apples game it works and you users will deny ans come up with excuses. Oh but good gpu on lower res display....first hd and large display. Next a few long awaited hardware is updates. Next year probably wont be much.
Duel, 05 Mar 2015Funny thing is that even over year and half year old iPhone 5S runs games better than current ... moreOnly even possibly stretching the same thing again...qHD vs QHD. So cheaper lower res display taking slightly smaller toll on gpu for heavier gaming that doesnt effect most makes the cheaper products worth double?
Duel, 04 Mar 2015So isnt that great that iOS devices have so "bad" hardware, how it would look like i... moreThey use a strong gpu and large cores. Their SoC is good. We all know this much. It could be better if they were not penny pinching for clock rate and battery capacity though...and the rest of the device basically.
And obviously the 1GB ram is way more limiting than any fan will admit. The endless crashes and more limited multi tasking prove this. This however is obviously less optimized software too. Not hardware alone.
And the past few years teach us their hardware is more limited and software not as advanced as they or fans claim.
5S came out and even the 4s couldnt get the full update. And they discontinued the 5 lol.
And ios 5, 7, and 8 give a whole new idea on how many bugs an update could have or how many crashes there could be.
And show users through lots of 4 and 4s lag, some 5 lag, and occassional 5s lag how limiting and unoptimized things can be.
And as the articles here show. They have 11% global sales, but 80% profit. But only 1/8 the sales. Proof of largely over priced scram.

Apple dont be stupid, IOS already lag free, dont ever add more RAM or your profit will be decreased

IPhone always have had better performance.

darkraver, 04 Mar 2015Should I reply now with "excuses" term too?
Dont bring samsung into the debate, c... moreI can compare it to any android device and result would be same if not worse, what device you want me to compare? Its just easier to find samsung videos because its most popular android.
So what about lg g3 gta san andreas http://youtu.be/S4Bge90eoZ0 ? Start the video from half away, horrible performance.
For comparison same game with iPhone 6 http://youtu.be/ffrK95jN41o So good performance and also the game looks great
With that performance you would think iPhone 6 compared to lg g3 is atleast two year newer device
darkraver, 04 Mar 2015I prefer answers over term "excuses"... Please answer... for a debate, you need al... moreSo isnt that great that iOS devices have so "bad" hardware, how it would look like if Apple devices would be 5 times faster than android devices :D because if what you said is true, with those android hardware Apple devices woul be as powerful as laptops. But its not true and Apple hardware isnt powerless, its very powerful and Apple single core speed is actually faster than android devices. Thats why Apple works faster in many cases.
