Rumors related to the iPhone 6 have been popping up at a faster rate over the past few days, which makes sense since Apple is expected to announce the device early next month. The current anticipated date is September 9th, although Apple has yet to confirm about any such press event.
Back to the rumors, the latest is that the iPhone 6 will still feature 1GB of RAM, which may disappoint fans since rival Android devices are going as high as 3GB of RAM. The rumor comes from the folks at Geekbar, an Apple repair firm, which posted an image of the leaked schematics revealing 1GB of RAM on board.
It’s disappointing, yes, but Apple’s OS optimization abilities are well-known, helping its devices perform better than their rivals even with lower specifications. The iPhone 5s also features 1GB of RAM, but it still turned out to be faster than many Android devices which feature more RAM.
Hopefully, we’ll find out for sure on September 9th when Apple is expected to announce two iPhone 6 models with larger screen sizes: 5.5-inch and 4.7-inch. The internals are not confirmed, but it’s expected to come with an A8 processor, Touch ID sensor, an improved camera, a bigger 1,810 mAh battery for the 4.7-inch model, sapphire glass display and iOS 8 installed.
