    Today is the definition of first world problems...after conflicting reports and articles, I'm starting to believe my beloved 6 Plus has 1GB of RAM.

    As a shareholder I'm glad Apple saved their money, as a customer I'm devastated. I get many will try to defend their decision but I personally bought the highest 6 Plus model...that's $1,000 off contract.

    How will I survive the next two years of Safari reloads?

    You won't and you will l be forced to upgrade next year when the 6s+ is released with the 2 GB of RAM.

    I'm not sure but I think there are already threads on this topic.

    If you are going to be that unhappy perhaps you should return it

    You have denied it for the past few days and now you say it has 1GB of RAM. What changed your opinion?

    Has it even been confirmed?

    I know the 6 has the 1GB.

    I'm actually hoping the 6 Plus has 2GB since I bought them for some people.

    So what if it runs fine and isn't laggy on 1 gig?

    I suggest waiting for the tear down and seeing how it actually performs before allowing your soul to be crushed.

    It's funny how the MotoX sold for $299 off-contract many times has 2gb of RAM while the $749 iPhone 6+ has only 1gb of RAM :rolleyes:

    Different OS yeah I know, still...

    While it might not have lag now... 1gb of RAM might cause the iPhone 6+ to have lag on a future iOS update or get left for dead on updates earlier than if it had 2gb of RAM.

    As long as it runs smooth I don't care if it uses unicorn tears!

    Couldn't you post this in one of the many RAM threads?

    I'm seriously questioning if switching to the 6 will even make a difference. Convince me...

    Tabs reloading.

    Devastated? Really? Jesus people get a grip...you haven't even used the phone yet. How do you know 1GB won't be enough?

    Your soul was crushed by the amount of RAM on your phone?

    Say that aloud a few times and see if it still resonates the same. I would tell you to say it aloud to another person nearby, but given your post I'm going to guess you don't talk to real people too often.

    My condolences.

    Well it already doesn't run that fine with Safari and app refreshes.



    It would be funny if next year they remove the refreshes and tout it as a feature :p

    Safari pages will go white and forced to reload. Not enough memory because apple wants to suck a few more dollars out of every customer

    This link ruined my hopes. Worse than the day I found out Santa Claus wasn't real.

    I'm guessing the humor didn't come through. My literal soul is just fine. My nerd soul is crushed!

    So if on a web page, you take a call, an launch safari again the page will reload instead of just being where you left it?

    His post was clearly t&c , he's serious but realizes it's not an actual big deal in the big picture , some of you are so self righteous
