Lets face it, Apple being Apple, needs something to upgrade for next year... and 2GB of RAM is a part of that.

What angers me is the 16GB base model. 1GB will be fine for 99% of users. And that's a low figure, probably even more than 99% since iOS is far more efficient with RAM than Android. What really does anger me is that in the year 2014 they are trying to sell a $750 phone with 16GB storage. Now that's freaking ridiculous.

Why are you getting angry. No one is forcing you to buy it.

Maybe on future phones you could upgrade the ram to avoid angry people.

No, they're forcing me not to buy it.

I'm angry because I've been a loyal iPhone user since the very first one in 2007. They are outright insulting the intelligence of their users trying to sell a $750 phone with 16GB storage. And they're going to sell millions of them to dimwits who don't realize other manufacturers are moving to a 32GB option.

Are the people running Apple so incompetent that they can't come up with a product line that will make their margins without pathetically sticking to 16GB baseline while other manufacturers can? We've been stuck at 16GB for almost five years! Are they really trying to say that NAND flash has had zero progress since then? Bull*hit. I wish people would join me in not buying the iphone until they move to a 32GB base model. Five. ******. Years.

The NAND flash in the iphone has literally dropped in price to LESS than a third of what it was in 2010. Unbelievable. I'd be a little less mad if the 6 Plus came with 32GB. But no, they were too incompetent to swing it.

Most other manufacturers have so much bloat ware on their phones the 32GB of storage but really only 16GB of it is usable if they are lucky. You need to go out and buy some flash storage cards to add additional memory.

There will be a lot of innovation in next years iPhone too. Apple is never short on ideas when it comes to introducing breakthrough technology, performance, and features.

If next year's devices all have even more RAM and this alone encourages many more people to upgrade all over again, that's a good thing.
