Apple doesn’t usually get into spec wars which is quite common in Android manufacturers, yet they manage to pull off an excellent user experience performance. However, it seems they may start catching up with the competition, and introduce more high-end specifications.
According to a new report from Taiwan, Apple may boost the RAM in the next year’s iPhone and iPad, to make room for more features.
Prior to launch of the iPad Air 2, we’ve saw several leaked images, and software features which would make its way to the tablet, especially the split-screen multitasking — which didn’t make through to the public. However, it seems things may change next year as the report mentions that Apple will bump the RAM in the next year models, with iPhone expected to feature 2GB of RAM while the iPad will be bumped to 4GB.
Although the current amount of RAM doesn’t create too much lags, and offers solid performance, the bump in RAM could just improve some of the software features, especially the multitasking capabilities of the devices. It would still be a little less than the Android flagships, but this means that Apple can introduce features which requires more RAM.
There’s no official confirmation, and there won’t be any until the next iPhone/iPad is launch so we’ll suggest taking it with a grain of salt. It’s just a rumor which we’ve seen several times before the launch of the current iOS devices as well. Have a look at our handy guide on how to improve your iPhone battery life.
