    I did just that...and no, they did not. Watch for yourself if you would like...you were wrong.



    Then I am wrong ? I haven't watched them in over five years and thought they did . I know at the time they had superior specs and they did flaunt it which I believe were the first to have a dual core CPU ? Thought they announced when they bumped the 512mb of ram to 1GB whenever that was which was I thought with the iPhone 4 or 3GS

    Apples presentations speak for themselves

    Ram is only an issue when its an issue so why focus on something that's not relevant

    the live device demos didn't show any lag that i could see. this was not a Samsung event

    RAM envy anyone? Would more RAM be welcomed? Of course. Is it needed? Not based on anything I do on my iPhone. Anyone have examples of why more RAM is needed?

    As far as battery life goes the talked about that at WWDC when they announced iOS 9.

    New battery technology putting same or better milliamp-hour capacity in the same or even smaller spaces... Apple isn't going to put something out that has seriously less battery capacity than their current models... it would be a PR disaster...
    Hmmm... Well Im not going to worry about it today, I like my battery life quite well at the moment. I'll worry about it... Next year when I upgrade both iPad and iPhone.

    Did you bother reading the replies? If you had...you'd see that nobody will HAVE an answer for this until it is torn down by one of the many websites that do so after release (ifixit, etc).

    I saw that nobody had an answer. The snark really necessary? Really?
    I definitely felt it was...your experience may differ. Either way, the answer was there...
    Wasn't specified...
    Who knows? They never announce RAM. Tears downs will tell.
    The first two responses in the thread stated that the info was not disclosed in the presentation and that it would not be known until the repair sites do their respective teardowns. Can't get much more "answered" that than.

    Based on that information alone, I believe that Sean's snark was definitely warranted.

    Yeah they usually fly to Australia and get them there since they get to the release date first.

    Me too. I may skip over this if it doesn't have 2GB RAM. Who knows? I'll have to play with it in store to get a good feel. If it does have 2GB, I'll be on board!

    Ram is an issue and always will be when your phone has 1GB . I just love tab reloading and app crashing and etc which I find happens a lot more on my iPhone then iPad Air 2

    I think what gets me is when I'm attempting to copy information from a browser to notes, inevitably I'll have a reload. Either that or I'll get a reload on a manga series I'm reading. It's enough to annoy me...

    No information on ram specs yet; hopefully it has more than 1GB, the plus really needs it. Reloading sucked

    Ok. Tabs reloading in Safari. You guys are making think a bump in RAM is more of a need for others than I previously thought.

    If the iPhone needed more RAM, I'm pretty sure the engineers at Apple would put in more RAM.

    Multi-tasking on my 6 Plus was hit or miss. I would be writing out my reply in Tapatalk or some other app and switch to Safari to look something up. I would then go back into Tapatalk and it would reload losing what I wrote. Not all the time but some times. It was incredibly annoying when it did. It's going to haunt users more since Apple seems to be putting more emphasis on multi-tasking. I hope they either fix this somehow by putting priority on user apps or give the phone more ram

    The RAM would be a big deal for the Plus. I'm seeing where the 6S plus still basically has OIS and of course better battery over the 6S. Same resolution as 6 Plus which still means it's rescaling.

    I'm thinking 6S over this. OIS wasn't a big deal for me. Battery is, but I can live with that. The only thing that would lure me is more RAM.
    The 6S Plus has OIS for Video, which I'm not sure I care all that much about.

    It has a 12MP Camera and 4K recording. The camera on the 8MP phones is already really good, and 4K video is still not practical on a wider scale (too many performance problems on lower end machine, and you need a monster PC to edit it efficiently - unless you're using proxy files in the editor).

    I think the 6 series was a great time to upgrade, cause the iPhone 7 [Plus] is likely going to be where they upgrade the display resolutions, RAM amount, design and give it some of the bigger upgrades that are coming now to the iPad Pro (Faster Storage and Memory Bandwidth, etc. which they didn't even mention for the iPhones - and something Samsung's phones have now, so its odd they didn't use the better SoC in the new iPhones). Also, they clearly mentioned that the iPad Pro was going to have "more memory" than the iPad Air 2, so it seems odd they would mention it for that device and then conveniently forget about it if the iPhones had more RAM, considering it would have garnered them a ton of positive press - something they never object to.

    3D Touch is something I'd likely turn off immediately, as I'm not interested in it and the iPhone is the only device I'd own that would use that. It would only cause headaches as I move from device to device, similar to how half their iOS devices lack Touch ID and you find yourself trying to unlock your iPod with your fingerprint, etc. I've tried the new Trackpads they have in the Apple Store. I'm not interested in that.

    Performance gains are ignorable to me as no software on these devices push the hardware in any meaningful way, anyways. The only time it makes a difference is when you're pushing a ton of pixels (Retina iPads, iPad Pro), and that's just not the case for the iPhones. That's more an issue for Android Flagships, which have pretty much standardized on 2K displays these days.

    I'm going to seriously consider the Note 5, though I need to do some reading up on Android L before I make a decision. I do feel like some of the specs and design decisions are a bit of a hindrance in their devices, though not enough to seriously complain about them. I'm not upgrading just to have OIS work on Video, which is the only thing I'd probably care about in the new phone on a day to day basis - not without some other selling points that actually matter to me [personally].

    Only two gigs ? I hope it has four, but even better would be eight. Keep people from squawking about the amount of RAM in iOS devices. I'm getting a headache.

    On a totally unrelated note, I can't believe Apple is still marketing devices with 16 gigs of storage. They should streamline to two models 64 and 128. And drop the prices on those two buy at LEAST $50


    I haven't seen anyone answer the question yet, did I miss it?
    And no one can. The problem is a few people are confusing RAM and storage.

    I think what gets me is when I'm attempting to copy information from a browser to notes, inevitably I'll have a reload. Either that or I'll get a reload on a manga series I'm reading. It's enough to annoy me...

    Use another web browser like Atomic. Ten tabs, no reloading. Of course I use Safari most of the time, but the one big feature of Atomic is that I can tell it to announce itself as Desktop Safari (among others).

    He is always snarky. I could probably take screenshots of a bunch of posts that are snarky ...
