Another reason why iPhone only needs not more than 1GB of RAM is because it does not allow UI customization like in Android.
In short, iPhone only can operate one apps at a time and no UI customization.
Apparently iPhone is still lacking behind the Android device such as Note4, Xperia Z3, LG G3....etc
since when was adding ram considered innovation? IOS operating system is operating system that doesn't require fast processing power because of its efficiency among the phone unlike the android phones who think they can compensate for the laggness by adding more processing power and ram, which kills the phone quicker, nothing to see here, if you want a 10gb phone get the s5 for crying out loud. lol

To all you fandroinds who keep thinking best specs mean everything apple doesn't require the best to work super smooth
Before we get overly carried away with specs wars it's important to remember that iOS generally doesn't need much RAM to operate as smoothly as Android and the 1GB limitation probably won't be noticeable in most daily activities.
gam30toronto, 17 Sep 2014Let me ask you just this. The WORLD had NFC on phones for many years. What have they done with... morefriend NFC in other mobile platforms is beyond just the payment stuff. make the device alot more pleasent to use by cutting dow connection setups for one of its major uses.

Only difference is anyone can sell Nokia asha to you @1000usd with just a Apple logo on the back. And even also you will argue nokia asha with Apple logo is gr8. Only becoz of you crazy fanboys we are not getting any cool stuff from Apple. They believe they have millions of brainless people who will buy every year whatever they offer and thats what they need.
Come on man phones r not servers right? Then why we need cars with more to offer but in better price. Why scientists are researching so hard to offer more for humanity. You live in stone age but dont try to motivate people to live in your stone house. We feel comfortable living in this modern age central heating system house...
AnonD-202900, 17 Sep 2014So any computer/phone etc etc with 64bit architecture, but only 1gig ram is about as pointless... morehating samsung phones is like a reflex to any ifan mate. when u rightfully question some of the sketchyness in the iphone thier auto response is the galaxy is laggy slow bla bla bla... I ask like realy those memory readings for the iphone are just too wishful man. its like they are desperate for a phablet thier iphone plus could be a "me too" device. ifans get ready to be ripped off fellas and pls dont forget to boast about that part. mean while for the rest of us who know what we want not what some selfish guy thinks u want we'll be checking out the androids. gives us plenty to chose from...

We didn't want more than 1GB of ram, iOS 8 doesn't need more which consumes the battery much faster. Just like we didn't want OIS on the iPhone 6 as digital stabilization is best. Only pro Plus users need OIS.

Btw this is fun knowing that for 2 years I have a phone you orchard dwellers have yet to upgrade to
Apple are so desperate now they have contacted the media DENYING it was ever their intention to use Sapphire on the iPhone6 & 6+
Ignoring the patent Apple filed and ignoring the earlier comments that it was a quality control issue, how or how did they drop or lose the Gorilla glass which was on the iPhone5S
Earlier this year Corning raised concerns about Sapphire
You like Apple Executives are living in denial (check Apple maps)
Trust me there is nothing that would make me own an iPhone6 even if free
