When I was roaming around online, I found Wikipedia entry "iPhone 6 Plus" cites TechPrezz.com in the reference section. Then I went through TechPrezz page about comparison between 6 and 6 Plus, the only notable difference is the alleged 2GB RAM in 6 Plus.

Here is the link: http://techprezz.com/compare.php?post_id1=22202&post_id2=22182

Despite credibility of Wikipedia is not always accurate, but it is interesting to see what the actual size of RAM that 6 Plus has.

Just FYI, I am not saying it is real.

Apple states on their website that the 6 Plus has 1GB of RAM. I'm going by what Apple says, as I'm not sure why they would lie and say that the 6 Plus has LESS RAM than it actually has.

This site is misinformed.

Apple doesn't state anything on their website.. there's no mention about RAM at all...

At the iPhone hacks section.
No One can install an app from the appstore on those display iphone 6 units and check the amount of ram installed?
Shouldnt be that hard to find out without having to do a complete tear down of the phone to figure out how much ram it has.

Ultimately it doesn't matter. 99.9999999% of you wouldn't notice the difference between 1gb and 2gb RAM. Use your phone and if it's fast enough for you then great. If not, find something else.

If you look at the bottom page of Apple website in the fine print is says 1 gb ram. Of course that was on the page where they were comparing all the iPhone models so still not sure.
No, it defines what 1gb of storage is.

"1GB = 1 billion bytes; actual formatted capacity less. Requires a plan (which may include restrictions on switching service providers and roaming, even after contract expiration); sold separately to qualified customers. Credit check required; must be 18 or older. Wireless service is provided by and is the sole responsibility of your wireless service provider. Some capabilities are not available in all areas and depend on your wireless plan and service provider network. Service may not be available in all areas or at the signal strength, rates, speeds, or bandwidth as demonstrated. Some features may require added fees. Contact your wireless service provider for more details. Customers who want to upgrade from another phone or replace a previous-generation iPhone should check with their wireless service provider for pricing options. For those who are not qualified customers, are not eligible for an early upgrade, are purchasing an unlocked iPhone, or wish to buy an iPhone as a gift, see your carrier, an Apple Retail Store Specialist, the Apple Online Store, or an Apple Authorized Reseller for pricing. In CA and RI, sales tax is collected on the unbundled price of iPhone. Wi-Fi Internet access required for some features; fees may apply. Use constitutes acceptance of Apple’s software license agreement. Warranty information is also available at www.apple.com/legal/warranty/iphone. Unauthorized modification of your iPhone software violates the software license agreement. Inability to use an iPhone due to unauthorized modifications is not covered under your warranty."

Absolutely correct...for the first 2 years of device ownership. In my experience, once iProducts get into their 3rd generation of software the RAM bottleneck starts to take a serious toll.

I know this is the "futureproof" talk that can be so frustrating, but it will make a noticeable difference in a couple years.

The vast majority of people keep phones and even other devices 2 years of less. Why would Apple cater to the minority?

The iPhone 5 had 1GB of RAM, so we're into the third year when the i6 is released...

You need to research what RAM does

I doubt that 6 Plus has 2gb of ram but we will need to wait and see for a tear down. Even if it did the 6 plus is too large for me. I'm waiting for the 6(S) next year. A 25% CPU boost and 1gb of ram concerns and just the 4.7 screen isn't enough to me to upgrade. I am really excited about Apple Pay but in my small town of 17,000 it will be awhile before that takes off.
