Apple iPhone 6s and Apple iPhone 6s Plus will both feature 2GB of RAM and the Apple SIM card?
According to a source who reportedly has been accurate in the past, the next-generation Apple iPhone 6s and Apple iPhone 6s Plus will both be stuffed with 2GB of RAM. Apple has employed 1GB of RAM for its handsets ever since the launch of the Apple iPhone 5. Earlier that year, it had placed 1GB of RAM in the third-generation Apple iPad, up from the 512MB of RAM used in the Apple iPad 2, heralding the change in the iPhone later that year.

We have seen something similar with the Apple iPad Air 2, which was launched with 2GB of RAM last year, up from the 1GB of RAM used on the Apple iPad Air. The additional short-term memory would improve multi-tasking capabilities, but could also consume some additional battery life.

The source also says that the Apple SIM card seen on the Wi-Fi + Cellular Apple iPad Air 2 will also be included out of the box on the new iPhone 6s models. With the pre-installed Apple SIM card, iPad Air 2 users can select a number of short term plans from AT&T, T-Mobile and Sprint in the U.S. and EE in the U.K. This allows users to select plans that better suit their short-term needs, especially when traveling. Without long term contracts to worry about, users can switch carriers more frequently.

Why they need 2 GB of RAM? Doesn't iOS run on 512 MB??

They will add a gig and increase the price by $300.

I seriously hate Safari reloading the page because of the low ram count. It should have been 2GB from the gate.

It's not the amount of RAM, it's how the OS works.

Because PA loads over 30+ images of a phone in every single article. God forbid it's an awards article where there's over 100+ pictures. I'd be lucky if I make it to the comment section.

PA if you're reading this, optimize your website and stop spamming articles with the same pictures.

Yeah reloads are annoying, just as bad as the resuming....on my 1520.

The crashes on my air 2 annoy the crap out of me

Agreed. I recently got an iPad mini with retina to give iOS another look, and the page reloads on safari piss me off.

Dude I really like how honest and unbiased your posts have become...

I'm not saying that you have to stop praising the things that you love about them though...

But totally agree, one of the main weaknesses of the current gen of iPhones is Ram, no matter how optimised they are.

Does Chrome on iOS scroll the same way Safari does?

PapaSmurph, you could always buy an Android device, root it, install an adblocker, and load Phonearena in 3 to 5 seconds. You've owned a number of Androids, you should know this.

Can we be fair here for a second.

I have used an iPhone 6, Nexus 5, and a Note 4. The iPhone, with the limited specs, easily keeps up with the other two beasts.

For the last time: it's all about optimization. Whether you trolls want to face it or not, iOS is better optimized than Android. I can admit this even though my note 4 is my daily driver.

It makes sense if you ask me...remember that PA article that Samsung wanted to supply with a mega deal to Apple? And if they upgrade the LPDDR4, it would probably help if they added more than 1GB. I remember a user mentioned something about that on Macworld.

Mxyzptik is hardly a troller on Apple, since he loves Apple so much himself.

Basically you're saying 2GB won't make a doing.

Why are you replying to me? I don't understand your point.

I'm saying that 2GB is nice, but certainly not needed. But hey, how could you not welcome spec bumps.

But with iOS, one is naturally less concerned about spec bumps as one with Android would be.

Since you are replying to Mxyzptik and saying you trolls...thought you might have thought he was an Apple troll.

Oh no, I was stating that as a general statement, but sorry for the confusion.

There are a lot of trolls that won't admit iOS is better optimized than Android. One day, I really hope that Android surpasses iOS, since I like Android a lot more.

No sorry needed. And I know, you can't say a positive thing about iOS or you have them on your back as well. Not that many people are neutral when it comes to Android/iOS. Hell even within the Android camp it's brand wars. Be together not the same my ass.

The iPhones and basically iOS is general doesn't have real multitasking or offer multi-window. All Android have real multitasking and the Note 4 as well as some others offer multi-window, so you can run multiple apps simultaneously on the same screen. Things that iOS can't even offer with only 1 GB of ram.

Also there was rumors of Apple offering those things, but like I said earlier, it can't happen with only 1 GB of ram.

Right. Samsung vs HTC vs Whatever. It never ends. Sometimes I criticize the very device I own and Samsung fanboys get on me for it.

Like dude, I own a note 4. Just because I can admit something needs to be improved upon doesn't make me a Samsung hater lol.

I must say, it is VERY annoying when safari reloads my tabs. Hopefully this can help with this issue.

As for multi window, I need to start using that more. Truth be told, I never use that or the s-pen

So that's what it was. I've been wondering why safari kept on crashing on my iPhone 6 Plus when it's perfectly fine on my Air 2.

You cannot optimize 3rd party websites. They all have to be reloaded every time if your phone is out of memory.
