So with all the part leaks over the last month, we can realize most of them were correct.

This leaked about two weeks ago and another forum member was kind enough to break down how it's 2GB of RAM here.

Here's also a few sites confirming 2GB of RAM. I'm not trying to cause an argument but I really think there's 2GB of RAM in the iPhone 6 Plus, therefore adding another "better" feature to it vs the 6.

I am getting the 6+ just for the added screen size. Throw on top of that 2GB Ram, Optical Stabilization, 1080P HD Retina display is a HUGE bonus. Extra $100 well spent :D

It needs more ram because of the resolution. The iPhone 6 will outperform the plus across the board in real world use as they both use the same processor. I am wagering that the plus will be plagued with stutters and slowdowns to some extent which won't be present in the 4.7.

And a better landscape orientation experience....

Or they clock the plus slightly higher than the 6.

Exactly everyone is starting to get jealous if it is

I would put money on it that it has more RAM. Bigger display, plus support for the next 3 iOS versions? They pretty much have to do it.

A lot of the large Android phones come with less RAM than the international versions, and it shows itself by stuttering and so forth on the USA versions of those phones, because of that 1GB less of RAM.

I hope it does.

The tons of extra pixels and larger display to drive, mean that this thing could be inferior to the 6 performance wise (think iPad 2 vs iPad 3).

I really hope it has 2GB of RAM but I don't know if I'd call any of this "proof"

this cracks me up. It's going to be 1GB ram. Do you really think apple would essentially give the finger to ppl buying the 6? By in essence future proofing one phone and not the other? Makes no sense. The extra GB Is nice but by no means required..

Don't forget landscape mode and 401 ppi vs 326

You sound like the "there is no 5.5" iPhone" crowd.

You obviously have no idea what you are talking about...You realize the 6/6 Plus have different screen sizes correct? Is it that hard for you to comprehend that a 1GB 4.7" is future proof, and a 5.5" with 1GB would not be future proof?

Read up on hardware/performance a bit, then come back and state your opinions.

Didn't they already give the finger to 6 users by adding a better screen, batter and camera to the 6 Plus?

Let's be honest, Apple knew those added features would get people to spend more money on the Plus.

Apple gives the finger to people all the time, so I wouldn't put it past them.

Exactly, tell that to the people who claim the 6+ has OIS and significantly longer run times and a higher PPI screen.... I mean, we all know Apple would never do that to iPhone 6 owners, right? right??

Ok... My iPad has significant longer run times? Bigger body bigger battery? What's your point? OIS in a bigger phone that's harder to stabilize manually .. Oh ok makes sense. Higher ppi? Cool I'm happy u can see the difference in such small screens bc the tech "experts" that had hands on state no noticeable difference between the 2... "Right right..." Sorry but the iphone 6 is not lacking anything it doesn't need with the size it is

Look at 5c vs. 5s.

I bought a Moto X (still using actually) after having a Note 2, LG G2, and a Note 3, all which vastly outclass it in terms of specs and haven't been more satisfied with a phone.

Guess I'll stop liking what I like and be jealous... just because...? :confused:

2GB in iPhones would be nice to see though. No denying that.

Memory has very little to do with screen resolution/graphics stuttering, that's primarily the GPU. The SoC might be clocked a bit higher in the 6+ as it's physically larger, giving them more thermal headroom, and has a larger battery allowing for higher clocks without hurting battery duration as much.

The 5s (and 6, and 6+) often fall short on memory (reloading pages in safari, etc) because they run 64bit apps, and those inherently consume more memory. That's all there is to it.

Hopefully the 6+ does have 2GB RAM. But I wouldn't bet on it.

To be honest, why should you care about available ram?

It's a great addition for computers, but having owned the 5S and every phone before it. Other than just having more ram, I've never been in a situation where I felt "wow, I'm stuck. wish I had more ram."

I'm not trying to be funny. I just have yet to come across a situation where there was tasks or applications running that pushed my device to it's limits. processor or ram.
