The Apple iPhone 6 rumored to come with 1GB of RAM aboard
Initially spotted by GeekBar and afterwards re-shared by Weibo, a Chinese micro-blogging site, the rumor allegedly shoes leaked papers that reveal the hardware schematics of the iPhone 6. The title of one of the papers clearly says “POP-FIJI-1GB-DDR-BO-BGA”, which allegedly means that Cupertino's next forerunner won't stray away from its predecessor, the iPhone 5s, in the memory department. It's worth mentioning that GeekBar has previously leaked quite a number of schematics that have revealed specific details about the hardware of Apple's devices. Despite this, take your biggest bucket of salt with you, as you'd need to take handful of the substance along with this rumor.
We can't say if the iPhone 6 will indeed come with this exact amount of RAM on board. Its Android rivals have amped up their game in this exact department long ago – 2GB of RAM seems to be the standard in the industry at the moment, while the higher-end devices are even graced with 3GB of RAM. Probably it won't take long before we witness the mass-market adoption of smartphones with 4GB of RAM abroad. The reason behind Apple's modest actions in the RAM compartment is the optimization of their mobile OS, iOS, which usually perform on par with devices that have way more random access memory.
