An alleged schematic of the new device that shows the iPhone 6 to be featuring a 1GB RAM chip instead of a larger module
We all had been anxiously waiting for Apple to drop us any hint which would tell us when the iPhone 6 would be unveiled to the public and now that we have got the date, we are getting even more restless instead of taking our calm. It seems the closer we get to the date, the more leaks we are being thrown at. The most recent leak that we have got is about the alleged schematic of the new iPhone 6 and it shows the phone equipped with merely a 1 GB RAM instead of an expected larger module. So this feature of the iPhone 6 puts it at par with the current gen of the iPhone including the iPhone 5, the iPhone 5s and the iPhone 5c.
All the information included in the leak has reached us through Geekbar which is an Apple repair firm based in China and according to them these leaked tits and bits about the schematic chart of the upcoming iPhone 6 have come from an internal source which is inside Apple’s supply chain. However, it is important not to rely too heavily on these leaks pictures since even the people behind Geekbar aren’t sure if this schematic chart is for the smaller 4.7 inch version or the larger 5.5 inch phablet version.
While some of you must be wondering why Apple decided to stick with the 1 GB Ram for the iPhone 6, some people wouldn’t have taken this as a surprise. This is because if we look back, we will find out that Apple has never been overly interested in expanding the RAM of their iPhones and though every feature seems to improve with an new generation of the iPhone, this one seemed to have seen little or close to no evolvement. The surprising element is not the absence of a larger RAM but the presence of this smaller one not affecting the performance of the phone in any way. Well, that’s mainly because Apple pays close attention to its tight hardware as well as brilliant software integration. If this is to be believed that the iPhone 6 is coming with a 1 GB RAM, then the phone would fall on a lower panel as opposed to its competitors such as Samsung, LG and HTC which have considerably expanded their RAMs.
Some Android users will not find this agreeable but it is indeed truth that Apple hasn’t always felt the need to increase its RAM because luckily their platform has never been slower as opposed to Google’s operating system. So if the users are willing to think on these terms, then the smaller 1 GB RAM featured on the iPhone 6 seems to be of no problem at all. It’s also noteworthy that the schematic makes references to DDR and NAND, which makes it likely to be a reference to the flash memory instead of the DRAM embedded within the new A8 SoC but it would be wise to wait for Apple till it officially announces the phone with all its details.
