iPhone 6S will reportedly have 2GB RAM and Apple SIM




It’s been reported that the next iteration of the iPhone (most likely called the iPhone 6S) and the bigger iPhone Plus would have double the RAM than their current versions. They are also reported to ship with an included Apple SIM.

A person familiar with Apple’s future plans and have previously provided reliable information indicated to AppleInsider that the next batch of iPhones will have 2GB RAM. This could make the handset perform better and faster while switching between apps, although it could suck more power from the battery. And if you’ve been an iPhone user then you know how battery life is a prevailing issue. Hopefully Apple will also improve the battery efficiency of their upcoming iPhones.


 

In addition to the double RAM installed, the next iPhones could also ship with an Apple SIM included. It has been previously implemented on the iPad Air 2 and now the company could be considering having it pre-installed with the handsets. For the unfamiliar, having an Apple SIM lets users sign up for mobile data plans from any participating carrier. They could do so without having the need to go to carrier stores, but by simply going to their Settings app and enrolling without long term contracts. Users could also switch to different providers at any time, although we strongly doubt that it would be implemented here.

As for the bigger RAM, will you be ditching your current iPhones for it? Stay tuned as we wait for other news on the next Apple smartphone.

      Ikaw naman o. Ganun talaga ang Apple. Pakonti konti lang ang upgrade sa specs para good profit every quarter of the year. 2gb sa iPhone 6s tapos water proofing at wireless charging naman sa iPhone 7. Sobrang confident sila sa branding kaya naman confident din silang makakauto ng mga tao every year.

    • carloxy says:

      ^well you cant blame Apple for sticking to their strategy coz theyre making tons of money out of it. But to be fair, they still manage to make their phone run smoothly in spite of just having 1 GB ( that is if you’re not a poweruser ) so kudos to their programmers :)

    • poche says:

      ako din yun os/ecosystem binibili ko sa ios di yun hardware specs since di rin naman nammaximize yun hardware ng current apps ngaun. if meron man sana improve yun battery technology siguro.

    I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again. Specs don’t matter. Sorry for Apple haters, pero look how an iPhone 4s with 512 MB RAM and dual core would compare to your (or MY Android device) with double the specs.

    And that right there is the problem. Andaming haters ng Apple pero wala naman silang Apple devices. Samsung has double the specs at less than Apple’s price, sure. Pero build quality? Bloatware? Olats lahat ng Samsung phones except sa mga new A-series at sa Note series. Meron din akong Samsung Note 2 na aminado akong impressed na impressed ako hanggang ngayon.

    Of course Apple is not without it’s faults. People just need to accept the fact na hindi sila lang ang tao sa mundo para yung gusto lang nila ang dapat gusto ng lahat ng tao. Some people prefer Apple’s simple yet elegant design. Some people prefer overwhelming specs and the ability to customize from Android. And some people have both! Don’t hate people who have money to buy what they want.

    Bumenta ang iphone 6 and 6plus because of the ugly Galaxy S5. But if innovative and big upgrade ang pag uusapan, Samsung S6/s6 edge is the winner today. Natuto na rin ang samsung sa strategy ng apple. Form factor always matters. Asus zenfone 2 is also one of my top choices.

    • copycatsamsung says:

      you have a point Tony! natuto ang Samsung sa Apple kaya yung bagong S6/Edge ay ginaya sa design ng iphone 4 and iphone 6.

      as expected, samsung will always copy the design of apple. expecting another lawsuit.

    • archie says:

      @copycatsamsung Psst apple fanboy, $200 lang ang total cost ng pagpagawa ng iPhone. Wala din silang R&D bukod sa OS dahil lahat ng parts ay galing din sa third party software na binabarat nila. Mataas ang singil nila dahil buhos sa marketing at branding ang gastos nila. And FYI Samsung Ativ ang inspiration ng Samsung S6. Yung sinasamba mong iPhone naman ay galing sa Meizu MX3 at Alcatel idol series ang design. Hirap maging utu-uto no? Naglalabas ang mga tao ng P40k above para sa design at technology na on par lang sa 2011 models.

    • copycatsamsung says:

      the dumbest comment i’ve read from an android fan —–>>> walang R&D ang Apple bukod sa OS. wahaahahahahaha!!!

    • copycatsamsung says:

      @archie, ATIV was copied from Apple’s Macbook Air. hahahahahaha!!!

    • copycatsamsung says:

      the dumbest comment i’ve read from an android fan (@archie) ——–> wala daw R&D ang apple bukod sa OS. hahahahahahahaha!!!

    • tukmol says:

      nakakatwa namn ung nagcomment na walang R&D ung apple…
      taon ang binibilang bago magrelease ang apple ng product due to research, testing and prototyping. yang Samsung edge gaya gaya lang… nung nauso ang curve display, may kumalat na baka curve na ang next iphone so ang ginawa ni samsung ginaya nila para masabing sila ang nauna…

    • Rodel says:

      hala di po ito totoo. walang kakayanan ang apple para gumawa ng display at outsourced ito sa gaya ng sony at samsung. samsung round ang unang mobile device na may bendable display at note 4 naman ang unang merong independent function sa curved display.

  8. Yuya says:

    Dapat un innovation nila 2 days battery life (heavy use) gaya ng sony while maintaining o increase ung thickness ng kaunti. Marami na bibile nian.

    • G23 says:

      Haha hindi ko alam kung samsung fan sya o hindi pa sya nakagamit ng iphone. Yung iphone 4s nga ang baba ng specs pero smooth pa sa samsung s4 e samantalang ang taas taas ng specs ng samsung s4. Compare m naman specs haha what more kung gagawa ng specs ang apple na uso ngayon e d halimaw. Hindi ako iphone fan pero syempre hindi ka lang magbebase sa specs minsan sa performace. Aanhin mo ang mataas na specs pag tumagal naman bumabagal na at naglalag pa. Unlike sa iphone panahon pa daw ni kopong kopong ang specs pero parang latest ang performance. Peace.

    • Rodel says:

      tama, di lang naman sa OS ang R&D ng apple, malamang meron din sa phone design at sa A chip nila. bukod dito wala na ako maisip kasi lahat outsourced na tulad ng panel, memories at baterya. Optimised kasi ang iOS kaya smooth na sya kahit sa mababang specs pero madami ding kompromiso tulad ng true multitasking na meron ang android. kung S4 vs 4S – S4 padin ako hehehe. mas masarap mag-net saka mas reliable sya rendering (kasi naman mas latest) although mas smooth ang 4S sa pag open ng apps.

    • archie says:

      Tsk tsk kawawa naman ang mga apple fanboy. Willing magpauto kaya nauuto. Nakabasa lang ng pro apple articles sa internet e todo pagtatanggol na sa walang buhay na gamit. A chip? Samsung technology yun. Design? ATIV at Meixu MX3 lang ang origin. Kahit alcatel idol series e iPhonic design na since 2012. Optimized ang IOS? Hardware centric ang iOS kaya pag dinala mo sa ibang non customized hardware crash at shutdown ang aabutin. Kahit naman sa iPhone nagkakacrush na ang iOS. $200 lang ang total cost ng pagpapagawa ng iPhone, mas mahal pa ang production cost ng Xiaomi Mi4 na nasa $250. Pero wala naman akong magagawa kung ganyan kayo ka-butthurt at kaiyakin pag napipintasan ang sinasamba ninyong iPhot, ganun talaga ang mga tangang fanboy, di tumatanggap ng kapintasan.

    • lemuel says:

      hahaaha @archie, kung marunong ka sa business you need to add overhead cost, r&d cost,etc. to the actual cost of the unit. not just raw materials.
      isip isip din.

    • Rodel says:

      Optimised nga ang iOS with respect sa low hardware specs nya. ano bang pinaglalaban mo sir archie? hehehe. yep, mababa ang production cost ng iphone although syempre dapat iconsider din ang ginagastos nila sa advertisement. heto ang dahilan kung bakit mahal ang iphone at galaxy – bayad sa mga ads. parehas na nagkacrash ang android at iOS pero mas smooth nga ang iOS dati although ngaun sa mga bagong android high end phones, di na to totoo. Sa design naman, wala naman original dahil lahat may pinanggayahan depende sa dikta ng market – big screen, metal, higher res panel etc.

  10. copycatsamsung says:

    for an android fanboy, @archie is really dumb. no kidding.

  11. Arvin says:

    Ang pinaka elib ko lang talaga sa iphones is yung performance. based sa nabasa ko, ang objective daw kasi ng apple sa iphone is not the specs, its about the user experience. kaya kung mapapansin mas smooth si 4s na dualcore at 512 RAM kaysa sa mga android counterparts nya. ino-optimize daw kasi nila yung software based sa hardware para jive, yun daw ang secret ng smoothness ng iOS. Correct me if im wrong.

    • Rodel says:

      yep pero syempre may drawbacks tulad ng true multitasking, animation (in case sa 4s) at dahil mababa ang RAM, limited ang space sa browsing kaya lagi nagkakacrash ang safari.
