What I don't understand about people complaining about iOS limitations and so on and so forth is that they can't understand that iOS lovers don't need widgets, those extra RAM and complicated things that I find on Android OS. There's "free will" and Apple isn't brainwashing us for using iOS.

wakcheng, 11 Jul 2014and still 1gb ramIf they involve another 1GB RAM bank (making it 2GB) plus more pixels to push it will increase battery draw, "however" as with the new Haswell chips if the A8 uses reduced lithography this may compensate..The weight would increase also but this may be offset by sapphire glass weighing less and A8 chip been smaller lighter..I often think like I was when I was a kid and more interested in whats inside these devices than what they actually do.
If I was brainy enough I would love to know why Symbian in its third edition ie N80,N86 models could not have carried on by increasing C-Disk space,RAM and CPU/GPU power.
popye, 11 Jul 2014Bloated and poorly optimized OSes only need more than 1GB of RAM.I bet you're referring to Android OS haha.
qwerty man, 11 Jul 2014do you happen to know anything about cpu architecture..iphone 5s has a dual core processor and... moreWith the iPhone 5s @ 640 x 1136 pixels, 4.0 inches (~326 ppi pixel density), there's no surprise. It's much easier to beat flagship Android devices when the 5s has a significantly lower screen resolution, smaller display, and far less pixels to push.
I'd like to see the 5s try that with its current SoC @:
1080 x 1920 pixels, 5.1 inches (~432 ppi pixel density)
1440 x 2560 pixels, 5.5 inches (~534 ppi pixel density)
1440 x 2560 pixels, 5.1 inches (~576 ppi pixel density)
Results would be a lot different. Don't you think?
Even the iPhone 6 is playing it safe, rumored @ 960 x 1704 pixels, 4.70 inches / 5.5 inches (~416 / ~355 ppi pixel density). This is not even on par with high-end FHD devices.
If you or anyone else feels differently, please explain.

Brynn, 11 Jul 2014So uneducated its embarrassing to make such a comment.I bet that person is an Android user. Trolling around things he doesn't know anything about.
laginess, 11 Jul 2014They need it to address problems with widgetss hahaaaaha.Widgets? Lol! iPhone users doesn't need widgets. We love and enjoy our iPhones without those things. Are you referring to Android widgets? Go get an Android OS device. Troll!
listen, 11 Jul 2014Dual core 2ghz hey iam amazed how they overprice a phone with such outdated specs.It's a 64-bit mobile chip. The only one of its kind. It's not outdated.

This is gonna be a monster!
Just imagine the level of graphics and visualizations it is going to achieve with the A8 64 bit !!!
And android lovers, please get your fundamentals about the CPU arch (in light of iOS vs Android) in place before blindly comparing clock speeds and RAM....to prove your point.
Yaser, 11 Jul 2014iPhone does not require a quad-core processer. The reason behind it is simple the ios can simp... moreTrue partially, but what about the resolution? More pixels means more processing power required.
But overall iphone is very well optimized for ios.

iOS is very well optimized, so it indeed doesn't need a high frequency CPU, correct, even as a huge hater of the ecosystem I can say that.
But who is making the CPU again? Lol.
Guys before anyone starts trolling here is a few facts:
First this is being written on an HTC one I own a WP 8.1 device ((L630 single SIM)) and I like iPhones so I am not cheering for any company for any reason.
An iPhone 4S with a 1GHz dual core CPU ((actuall clock speed between 800-1000)) 512MB of RAM and a mediocre GPU ((relatively speaking)) on IOS 7 can match the performance of a mid to upper midrange androids.
So if this news is true ((talking about the new A8 here)) then the next iPhone will be a monster.
