iOS needs only 512 MB but still it gives 1 GB. That's the beauty of iOS is so fast. Other cheap Android brands uses 3 GB but still hangs. lolz
its only a ploy releasing the specs wait for the actual specs when iphone release this september and never believe on leakage.
bearing in mind this is a rumour and not confirmed as it only says ' it may be 1gb ram '
I somehow knew this would be an explosive topic !! Just another thing to hate apple for . I wonder how much this will be ? we can now preusme the 5.5 inch model will have the same specs of 1GB Ram too ?
Apple have just lit the fuse for all the haters....
64bit chip with only 1GB is a shame, giving the sheeps reason to upgrade from their 6 to a 6s or 7 prolly!
1Gb is enough, but eventually you'll hit that limit!
1. iPhone have no leg with 1GB of RAM because of superior memory management. I wish iPhone 6 have more RAM beause of the higher resolution screen but consider few know the inner working of A8, maybe it wouldn't make a difference.
2. It is ridiculous my Note 3 using more RAM then my desktop running Windows 8.1. Chrome on my phone cannot keep more than 5 tabs loaded at the same time whereas my desktop usually have 40 tabs open.
3. There is no such thing as future-proof in technology. Any phone not with 64-bit SOC and USB 3.1/Lighting is already outdated and that's all Android phones on sale today.
All I see comments from iPhone fans is "bla bla bla bla bla whining whining whining crap crap crap denial denial denial" and some bullshit talk. No wonder iPhone fans never grew up. Some says iPhone is King of smartphone. Actually iPhone iS the king of Bullshit.
1gb ram on iOS handles tasks much much better than droids having 3gb rams.. So please droid fans don't post hatred against iPhone it's still better than ur's having 1gb ram.
Entry level RAM but charge at flagship price!
1GB RAM is only for super low end smart devices such as Lenovo or Huawei!
iFail, iUse it but I'm not an iFan, Apple didn't give what iFans want. iNnovation stopped after iPhone 4s.
I expected more but lets face it, the majority of people I know you buy apple , including myself like the products because they are more simplistic.
smiplistic is what a lot of people want, they dont want to come to grips with androids.
so most people wont care what the RAM specs are. My main gripe with apple is the arrogant pricing. The products are solid.
AnonD-159400, 18 Aug 2014So.Why did Apple push for 64bit CPU on it's mobile devices?.When it is not ready to upgrade th... moreSince you had to ask it will take too long to explain and even if someone took the time to try it may not sink in. Just believe it when you are told that 64 bit is not all about memory addresses.
Anonymous, 18 Aug 2014ios devices doesnt need 4gb of ram to run buttery smoothios doesnt need but apps like chrome or safari need more than 1 gb..just open 4 tabs in chrome browse to 1st tab again it reloads again due to insufficient ram...
with the new android kernel and 64bit people are been force to use more RAM because majority of human including IT GEEK want moar RAM, while apple want people to buy less for more price, yes apple got money just selling less RAM and iphone user are dumb to know that while android user also slave for google where u need moar RAM on your phone while 1gb is enough
2GB would have been nice but i have to admit that the iPad Air works perfectly well with 1GB and see no reason why iOS8 should change that. I have used Samsung devices with 1.5GB and they dont work nearly as well, i am tempted to say that iPhone 4s with 512MB RAM is better. And symbian works flawless on 256MB so why shouldnt iOS have more than enough with 1GB?
At the end of the day i think this is good news, it gives the haters more to hate, with all the negative impact hate and stress has on the cholesterol this should surely shorten their lives ahah, brain stroke next =)
