Apple has made some changes to the iPhones launched at the “Apple Event” on September 9. Is 2GB RAM one of those changes? Read on to know more.
When it comes to specifications, Apple has lagged behind. The iPhone being the high-end smartphone sported only an 8-megapixel camera which is uncommon for smartphones that belong to the “high-end” category. Similarly, long after brands like Samsung and Motorola launched phones with 3GB and 4GB RAM, Apple decided to stick to 1GB RAM. With iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus, the company has finally brought some much-awaited changes to these phones.
In a report published on Ars Technica, the website with regards to the RAM of iPhones wrote, “That may be changing for the new iPhone 6S and 6S Plus, according to some sleuthing by developer Hamza Sood. Using a custom app and the iPhone 6S simulator included with the Xcode 7.1 beta, Sood has apparently confirmed that the iPhone 6Ses will include 2GB of RAM, and the developer offers more evidence pointing to 4GB of RAM for the iPad Pro.” Having said that, the website also agrees that this does not guarantee that the latest smartphones from Apple will come to the market with 2GB of RAM.
Why does Apple stick to RAM as low as 1GB or 2GB?
The operating system of Apple dumps browser tabs and apps, making more space on the device. This efficient memory management never made anyone feel the need for more space. But RAM is not only about space in the device; it definitely leads to better experience when the phone has more RAM.
With these two new phones, Apple is also said to be moving from 32-bit to 64-bit apps. As we have mentioned in our earlier reports, iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus are nothing more than improved versions of old iPhones.
