    When an iOS device has twice the performance of its predecessor coupled with twice the RAM, then that iOS device is able to handle newer iOS versions with more stability than iOS devices with less performance bumps and no RAM increases.

    For example, the iPhone 3GS was known for its reliability, even with newer iOS versions (because it was the first to double performance and RAM). The iPhone 3G, on the other hand, was barely able to run iOS 4, all because its performance and RAM did not change from the first iPhone.

    Another example is the iPhone 5: more than twice the performance of the iPhone 4s and twice the RAM. Remember how fast it was compared to the iPhone 4s running iOS 6?

    In my opinion, if the iPhone 6s has twice the performance of even the iPhone 5s and 2GB of LPDDR4 RAM, then it will be like another iPhone 3GS and iPhone 5: fast and reliable for future iOS versions.

    Don't worry, there is no way they would stick with 1GB of RAM for the fourth time in a row. They know many people will upgrade from the iPhone 6 because of the extra RAM. Not to mention to keep up with competitors.

    That would be ideal, although there isn't much difference between the A7 and A8 in terms of CPU performance, so twice of either should be fantastic nonetheless.

    Yeah, I remember that slide. The iPhone 4 is a bit higher than it should be though, and the iPhone 4s is also higher than it should be (too close to the iPhone 5). The iPhone 6 slide said 50x faster, so fingers crossed for 100x in the iPhone 6s!

    Actually, I was referring to where the dots in the lines should be. The iPhone 4s is clearly not in the middle of the iPhone 4 and iPhone 5 in the slide.

    I also want 2GB of RAM on the next iPhone but that won't be Apple's reason to add more RAM. Out of many million users, we (geeky people who want/care for more RAM) are just a drop in the ocean. Majority of iPhone users do not even know what RAM is.

    You are right, and the proof is in the sales of the iPhone 6.

    Each time they promise huge speed increases but in real life it will be hard to notice. The extra features are what I am looking for as the extra speed will do little most the time.

    Agreed! I bet less than 1% of the iPhone users even know how much RAM their iPhone has.

    We forget that it is US, in these forums, it is WE that are not normal!!!

    Good point. I think one of the best uses for the extra speed is the camera.

    each iphone will be fast enough for 3 iOS update. after that, youll need a new one.
    That's all that matters. 40x and 50x or any other metric like that don't matter on a phone. All apps will be updated to be optimized to the newest hardware, leaving the old behind.

    The only exceptions being the iPhone and the iPhone 3G.

    The average user won't notice the speed difference between the iPhone 6 & 6s.

    You might be right. The last time I saw a significant speed difference was the iPhone 5 running iOS 6 against the iPhone 4s. The iPhone 5 even ran at pretty much the same speed as the iPhone 5s (when both were at iOS 7).

    That depends what you mean by "fast enough". The iPhone 5 supported 3 years of updates much better than the iPhone 4S did, and likely better than the iPhone 6 will. If you buy a phone the model year before they make a major spec jump such as going from 512MB of RAM to 1GB, or 1GB to 2GB, they will add more and more features now that the new phones support it, meaning that the older phones will either perform more slowly or won't get nearly as many of the new features.

    It wasn't 40x or 50x faster than the last iPhone. It was that faster than the first iPhone.

    And it doesn't matter as app and iOS software developers will push it until it slows the device down. That's the nature of the it all.

    I agree with this, the iPhone 6 and 6+ will likely not run iOS 10 without hiccups.
