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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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

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.

At the rate at which iOS is adding features seen on android years before, of course it will need more RAM to run.

I'm tired of telling ppl, it's easy to do nothing fast. IPhone tend to be quicker because.
No notification shade
No live wallpaper
Low resolution screen
No widgets
No hotwords "hey Google"
No home screen / live wallpaper
No battery statistic
No data statistics
Limited access to

Call it optimization of you want, I call it lacking.

Yes Notification shade
Yes Live Wallapaper
Retina resolution screen
Yes widgets (jailbreak)
Yes hotwords "hey Siri" (has to be plugged in because apple don't want to WASTE BATTERY)
Yes home screen
Live wallpapers just waste battery
Yes battery statistic
Yes Data statistics
Unlimited access to stuff (jailbreak)

Clearly you never thought about jailbreaking it. Instant iOS/Android hybrid.

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.

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

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

Well, I happen think Apple does good with what it has too. But, the fact of the matter is, I know it can run even better with more standard application components that everyone else is using. Forget about the optimization stuff for a second. You don't think Apple can optimize its products with newer technology? Every time I place this argument in front of someone, they always say: "Well, if Apple did that, we couldn't afford it.".

So this is what it boils down to? Accept Apple's terms in offering the left over technology just so it can make huge profits by telling people what they have is enough? Who the hell is in control here?

A company on the brink of bankruptcy because our generation didn't put up with this constant crap yet, because of the iPhone and the lifestyle Apple successfully planted into unsuspecting minds, Apple finally gets to institute the least expensive parts possible and charge a king's ransom to become the richest company in the world in such a short time span. And with only 14% market share? Let that sink in a bit.

I never know what you're complaining about. The goal of every company is to decrease costs and increase profit. If Apple can deliver a product that millions of people love that competes with and usually tops the competition, even while cutting back significantly on the price of internals, then they've succeeded in terms of customer satisfaction and as a business. I really don't understand how can anyone complain when the iPhone is consistently the best or among the best smartphones every single year, at about the SAME price point as the competition.

I can always explain it. It is up to the individual to understand it.

I don't think you are understanding that Apple waits until newer technology is adopted. Then it purchases the older at a far cheaper price and then implements it in a high end priced product with lower end components. Try that with any other product in any other industry. Do you want to purchase a 2015 Mercedes with three year old technology even though the Mercedes would still perform better than most? Not for $70,000

Just because it works good the way it is, isn't the issue.

Who is judging it as the best? Tech sites and only the 14% market share?

I can certainly agree that specs isn't everything. But, it is an important part in knowing that you are getting more for the money other than glitz and glamour. There is a difference in making profits vs raping the customer for every single penny. You want an even a better iPhone for your money? Then start understanding what I'm saying. IPhone is not the best. It lacks in many categories. The best will truly crush in every aspect. If it is one of the best, it needs to up the anti to be the absolute best. You're paying for it only to be on par. Well, yeah because look what Apple is putting under the hood.

Why are people so angry with trolls? Sarcastic and cynical comments are meant to be funny and adding flavor to life. I don't know why people are so sensitive with non-living things get bashed and criticized. Are people already making love to their iphones and samsungs to the point that they treat gadgets like their lost wives? Let trolls say what they want, if you keep whining on their opinions, you're acting like a baby.
