23/08/14 - iOS Devices: On 2GB RAM
Today, Apple still ships devices with a paltry 1GB RAM. This has to change. Apple really needs to start putting a minimum of 2GB RAM in their iOS devices. When your device has to reload web pages many times over because it’s running out of memory, something is amiss. The fact that the A7 is a 64bit chip and iOS 7 is fully 64bit makes the 1GB RAM seem even more of a joke. I hope that Apple puts 2GB RAM in the next generation iPads and iPhones, because 1GB is growing really long in the tooth. Having said all that, I really don’t think they’ll give us those 2GB RAM. They’ll keep squeezing as much money out of 1GB RAM as they can.
Guess we’ll find out in September.
