All these multitasking and RAM limit comments by ifanboys are hilarious! Reminds me of the same crap DOS/Mac-128/512 vs Amiga users say... Generation after generation, the crap cycle of denial repeats...
gam30toronto, 17 Sep 2014and i am to make a point that millions of us DON'T NEED Who is "US"? So do you speak for all iPhone/iOS users? What it should be about is what YOU don't need.
I never ever had to use like three apps at once. How is that even possible?! I can listen to music and browse the Internet. What else do I need to justify the need of more then 1gb of ram?
Thomas Tompion, 17 Sep 2014iPhone does not support multi-tasking because due to limitation of Apple CPU Chip such as A8. ... moreMy point is, HOW would you watch youtube videos and listen to music simultaneously? to begin with... AND browsing the internet too.... WHY? this is so extra.. this is why you need those RAMs?

Dota2pro_player, 17 Sep 2014S**t brand? You can only say that because you cannot afford to buy an iPhone dude.Yours is the exact kind of stupidity one would hear from people who care too much about keeping up false appearances and think that buying an iPhone helps. They spend too much of their life's savings for buying something like an iPhone and then assume that others who are not buying it is because they cannot afford one though its they themselves that have barely managed to get one. This seems to be especially true about many Americans who pay a laughable $200 for a contract iPhone and think they are rich. Whats even more laughable is that it no longer even has such novelty. In my country, if you guess that somebody holding an iPhone either drives a cab for a living or runs a small shop in some corner, you would have a 75% chance of guessing right.
In many countries, there are much costlier phones than iPhone and people buy them too and not because of the cost, but because of the features they need. If an iPhone is really worth $800 (full price), There are many who wouldn't mind spending twice that amount for a high end android phone because they offer a number of features which would either take decades for Apple to implement or never get implemented at all.
iPhone is at best, a feature phone and many be good enough for you and some people who *want* a smartphone might even think its one, but people who really *need* a smartphone would still end up buying an Android device whether its cheaper or costlier because there are no other alternatives.
Funny thing is, There will still be people standing in queue to buy these
iPhone does not support multi-tasking because due to limitation of Apple CPU Chip such as A8. May be this is the reason it does not even need more than 512MB.
For sure no problem at all for Android device to watch YouTube while browsing internet and do FB and listening to music simultaneously.
IOS doesn't need more ram because it doesn't have as much feature as android. Windows 7 need more ram than XP because it has more feature. When IOS will provide same feature as android it will need the same ram as android. For this reason IOS 7 is very laggy on 512 mb ram in 4& 4s. But once we used to hear that 512 mb ram is enough for IOS.
was mentioned on the spec sheet directly after launch. No surprise one week later.
Thomas Tompion, 17 Sep 2014My prediction for Apple to equip 3GB RAM in the iPhone will only happen after 10 years from no... moreHoney, next year will not be iphone 7. you got it all wrong my dear. FYI, Samsung S5 will have 13GB Ram by 2024. Happy now? all you see is RAM
Dota2pro_player, 17 Sep 2014S**t brand? You can only say that because you cannot afford to buy an iPhone dude.Perhaps, It's time you know the fact, most of the iphone users can afford an Iphone only coz they get it on 2 years contract.
gam30toronto, 17 Sep 2014Iphone uses 1GB and it's at the same level as those "modern day devices" that uses 3... moreit's because looks like theres nothing new on ios,only an upgrade number from 7 to 8 and an upsize on screen from tiny to a bigger one
FreeBooter, 17 Sep 2014They are, really are better performers than iPhone with its feeble, 1GB RAM. The 2GB in my S5 ... moreYes and i am sure you are running 10 apps behind it too. Unfortunately most people don't need to run 10 things at once like you do. So please don't go there
My prediction for Apple to equip 3GB RAM in the iPhone will only happen after 10 years from now which is iPhone 16 in 2024.
Refer to below chronology:
2007 iPhone (64MB RAM)
2008 iPhone 3G (128MB RAM)
2009 iPhone 3GS (256MB RAM)
2010 iPhone 4 (512MB RAM)
2011 iPhone 4s (512MB RAM)
2012 iPhone 5 (1GB RAM)
2013 iPhone 5S/5C (1GB RAM)
2014 iPhone 6/6Plus (1GB RAM)
2015 iPhone 7 (1.5GB RAM)
2016 iPhone 8 (1.5GB RAM)
2017 iPhone 9 (1.5GB RAM)
2018 iPhone 10 (2GB RAM)
2019 iPhone 11 (2GB RAM)
2020 iPhone 12 (2GB RAM)
2021 iPhone 13 (2.5GB RAM)
2022 iPhone 14 (2.5GB RAM)
2023 iPhone 15 (2.5GB RAM)
>>>2024 iPhone 16 (3GB RAM)
Dota2pro_player, 17 Sep 2014okay they got 3GB RAM but why is it that they cannot reach the performance of the iPhone then?... moreThey are, really are better performers than iPhone with its feeble, 1GB RAM. The 2GB in my S5 allows me to do this... Run a dash cam DVR app, a music player playing a FLAC file and Chrome ALL at the same time in the foreground. That's multitasking power the iPhone does not have!
