Ever since the iPhone 5, all iPhones (iPhone 5, iPhone 5s, iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus) made by Apple feature 1GB of RAM. This means absolutely nothing to Android users (except for maybe bragging rights and an old joke), but Apple users will agree that the iPhone performs buttery smooth even with the single gig of memory it is equipped with. The secret, we all know, lies within the iOS platform, optimizations, and the way it handles memory, tasks, and so on, as well as the strict requirements for app developers.
The situation was kind of identical with the iPad too, but, starting with the iPad Air 2, Apple has doubled the RAM from 1GB previously to 2GB on its latest flagship model.
The 2015 iPhone might very well be an iPhone 6s, according to recent reports. For those who don’t remember, the iPhone 5s features some improvements (the most notable being the upgraded chip) over its iPhone 5 predecessor, and, the iPhone 6s (of course, it’s not the official name for the 2015 iPhone, but it’s been done before) could very well be just an upgrade to the current model. Apple’s own announcement history seems to prove that every two iterations there’s a major change, with everything in between being “incremental” updates. Think aspect every two years, with specs in-between.
The report claims that this year’s Apple smartphone will pack 2GB of LPDDR4 memory (also an upgrade from the current LPDDR 3), and that the Cupertino-based company might have taken this decision in order to keep things (iOS, apps, games) fluid, as content comes more demanding, and screen resolutions increase.
The report also claims that the next iPhone will probably use Force Touch from the Apple Watch (“ Force Touch uses tiny electrodes around the flexible Retina display to distinguish between a light tap and a deep press, and trigger instant access to a range of contextually specific controls — such as an action menu in Messages, or a mode that allows you to select different watch faces — whenever you want. It’s the most significant new sensing capability since Multi‑Touch.“).
The camera is also subject to this report which claims that Apple might finally move away from the eight-megapixel shooter — a great one at that — it’s been using (more of a specs war/catch up thing) and instead equip the next iPhone with a larger sensor (ten, twenty-megapixels, it is unclear).
There’s a lot wrong with this report: first off, the language barrier and Google Translate’s limitations; second, we’re still eight months or so away from Apple’s iPhone event; third, it’s a rumor. Treat everything above accordingly.
