The man responsible of the Android system that so many of us use today Andy Rubin might have left Google, but he's definitely not done making phones.





Rubin yesterday he posted a cryptic tweet in which we got a sneak peek into his new project with his company, Essential. The tweet said "eager to get it in more people's hands." We have to assume he's talking about the phone someone's holding in the picture.



There's precious little to see besides the top right corner of the phone which shows the time and a few icons.




In a Bloomberg profile of Essential from January, the new smartphone was described as a "high-end smartphone with a large edge-to-edge screen that lacks a surrounding bezel." Looks like that bezel-less and big screen concept will be reality, based on the photographic evidence.




With the new phone Rubin plans to do battle with both the iPhone and Google's (His previous employers) Pixel.






So a group of hackers threatened Apple and stated that if a ransom wasn't paid, they would remotely wipe millions of Apple devices. 

Apple then came out to say that both the iCloud and Apple IDs are safe and that they will be actively monitoring the situation.


Little is known about the situation but according to an email sent to BGR, the hacker group calling themselves the Turkish Crime Family is claiming that their threat is still valid and if Apple does not pay the ransom, they will indeed proceed with the wipe which they claim the deadline is on the 7th of April.

The message reads, “[We] requested $100,000 for each of our members which is 7 in total or $1 million worth in iTunes vouchers for instant resale at 60% of the original gift card value + Some private stuff that we have agreed not to publicize as we believe it may ruin Turkish Crime Family and Apple relations. The second thing is worth more to us than money.”

What Apple's next step will be is unknown and it is entirely possible that could try to settle things behind the scenes. 

Apple maintains that the iCloud and Apple IDs are safe and any device in danger is due to third party applications.







There was a huge backlash when the new Whatsapp update came on people's phone, not like they didn't like the addition of a 'Whatsapp stories' feature, they just hated that text-based status updates were removed. 

So with this in mind, Whatsapp have decided to bring back the old feature




According to TechCrunch, the old feature will be back on Android phones as early as next week while iPhone users will get it soon as well.

"We heard from our users that people missed the ability to set a persistent text-only update in their profile, so we've integrated this feature into the 'About' section in profile settings. Now, the update will appear next to profile names anytime you view contacts, such as when creating a new chat or looking at Group info. At the same time, we're continuing to build on the new Status feature that gives people fun and engaging ways to share photos, videos and GIFs with their friends and family throughout their day," said Whatsapp




So what will happen is that the WhatsApp Text Status feature will work just in the same way as it was seen on Android beta version 2.17.95. with users able to set a text WhatsApp Status in the 'About' section which will change only when you want it to. Your contact list will be able to see the Status message by opening your contact, when starting a new chat thread, or viewing group info.




This is not to say the 'Whatsapp stories' feature is going anywhere but will only be housed in another tab. You can add photos and videos that disappear in 24 hours.









I know, I didn't believe it either, but it's totally a thing. There is an iPhone accessory that's practically an Android device.

It's called the Esti Eye and it's on Kickstarter. It's practically an Android phone of its own. It just happens to snap onto the back of an iPhone. (6, 6 Plus, 6S, 6S Plus, 7 and 7 Plus), you know, like a weird chameleon villain.


So details yeah? Well the Esti Eye has a second screen, which you look at when you're not looking at your iPhone screen. It can take selfies with your rear camera lens, it's...it's...well, weird.








It features, A 2,800mAh battery, Two extra SIM slots, An always-on 5-inch AMOLED screen, Wireless charging, A car-mount metal tag, Up to 256GB of extra storage, Infrared, A 3.5mm headphone jack, "Pure Android" (no version mentioned), with a promised two years of update support.


It's available on Kickstarter and it's expected to retail for $189 or $229 for the 4G LTE version, both shipping in August.

How well will it work...err, we'll have to wait and see i guess.

An Android iPhone case though...dear me.







With the coming of the Galaxy S8 in just about two weeks the anticipation is high, but Android fanboys might have to temper their claims of a Samsung phone that will rival iPhone as a new report says iPhone 8 might have something that'll blow Samsung out of the water.




The iPhone 8 is rumored to feature a large display that would occupy almost the entire available space on the front side of the handset. Apple would kill the home button, without killing any of its features, reports said, including the Touch ID fingerprint sensor that would be embedded in the display.



The Galaxy S8 rumors that followed indicated that Samsung would take a similar approach, and actually beat Apple to market with an all-screen phone design that whose screen would also incorporate a fingerprint sensor.

However, the closer we got to MWC, it became clear that the Galaxy S8’s screen would not have fingerprint-reading powers. Instead, Samsung chose to place the sensor on the back side, next to the camera.

According to a new report, Samsung was really going for that feature, but had to ditch it as it ran out of time.

Apparently, Samsung partnered with Synaptics, but the latter was not able to complete the technology in time.

“Samsung poured resources into Synaptics’ fledgling technology last year, but the results were frustrating,” a source familiar with the matter revealed.

“With the production imminent, the company had to decide to relocate the fingerprint scanning home button to the back of the device at the last minute.”

Apple, on the other hand seemed to through patents show that it had been discovering different solutions that could add fingerprint-sensing features to any screen, without affecting the screen’s main purpose, which is to display various UI elements while the phone is in operation. Reports also claimed that Apple is developing its own touchscreen-based fingerprint sensor, without outside help.


The Galaxy S8 is expected to come with an iris sensor thought which will advance facial recognition and let users unlock the device in less than a tenth of a second.






The news that the iPhone 8 might cost more than a thousand dollars was received with mixed feelings-- some were of the opinion that this was way too much while others accepted that with the many features that were being introduced, it had to cost a pretty penny.



From the looks of things though, it seems like Apple might not be the only company with super expensive phones. Android device makers are expected to match some of the iPhones key parts.


This comes from a new report courtesy of research firm TrendForce who say that prices for key components including DRAM memory, NAND Flash storage, and AMOLED panels will continue to climb this year. Apparently, smartphone makers are looking for better parts when it comes to RAM, storage, and screens, facing tight supplies.

READ: ANDROIDS ARE MORE RELIABLE THAN APPLE PHONES- REPORT



What this means is that it is quite likely that more and more high-end phones that use state of the art component are going to climb in prices too. 

For Instance, the report notes that numerous smartphone vendors are adopting faster LPDDR4X memory, which is more efficient but not more expensive than the LPDDR4 kind. Tight RAM supply is expected to keep pushing up the price of memory this year, which will see an average increase of 10% compared to last year.

The report notes that eMMC and UFS memory prices are going up, partly fueled by Chinese smartphone vendors who are looking to match storage specification of their devices with the iPhone. That means more flagship devices will move from 32GB/64GB storage options to 64GB/128GB but this also means that phones are likely to be more expensive due to memory and all.


So Phones are certainly getting better what with all the improvements we've read that will be made for phones everywhere, but this also translates to the fact that they will also likely be more expensive to purchase. 










Ask anyone on the street which they'd prefer in an Android and an iPhone and you'd get different answers, but most people would probably (albeit grudgingly) accept that the iPhone is more efficient.

But is that really the case?

According to a new research report released by the Blancco Technology Group, the failure rate on Apple’s iPhone is far greater than it is on competing Android devices. Not only that, but the failure rate experienced by iOS users has only increased with each passing quarter over the past year.

According to technology news agency BGR, the report states that iOS devices during the last quarter of 2016 experienced a failure rate of 62%. By way of contrast, Android smartphones during the same quarter saw a failure rate of 47%. Also of note is that Apple’s iPhone 6 continues to be the worst offender among varying iPhone models.



For the purpose of the study, failure refers to when a device (iPhone or otherwise) doesn't do what it should, this includes camera problems, touchscreen problems, battery charging issues, software errors and so on.

The report says “The iPhone 6 has been the worst performing iOS device consecutively for four quarters with the highest failure rate compared to other models,

“25 percent in Q1 2016, 29 percent in Q2 2016, 13 percent in Q3 2016 and 15 percent in Q4 2016.”

This is probably referring to the issues that plagued the iPhone 6. A lot of people complained about a problem with the touch screen that was called the Touch Disease. 

What happened there was that a large number of iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus owners began noticing that the touchscreen on their device either stopped working or only worked intermittently. Other users, meanwhile, found that the responsiveness of the iPhone’s touchscreen display became temperamental and less responsive. Once the problem became too large to ignore, and perhaps motivated by a rash of bad press, Apple in November agreed to fix affected devices.

Apple didn't cover themselves in glory when they went on to blame iPhone owners themselves. Apple’s multi-touch repair program reads in part: “Apple has determined that some iPhone 6 Plus devices may exhibit display flickering or Multi-Touch issues after being dropped multiple times on a hard surface and then incurring further stress on the device.”

According to BGR, iPhone 6 issues aside, the issues said to impact iPhone owners most frequently include overheating, crashing apps and “headphone malfunctions.”

Blancco in their report was favourable towards Android phones, but this does not include Samsung devices which they said were the worst of the bunch. 

The report said “Samsung consistently had the highest failure rate among Android manufacturers for five quarters in a row,

 “At 27 percent in Q4 2015, 43 percent in Q1 2016, 26 percent in Q2 2016, 11 percent in Q3 2016 and 16 percent in Q4 2016.”





So it's not been really long since Apple moved their iPhones from pin style accessories to Lightning compatible hardware (2012) and you'd think that would be that for a while at least.

But alas, a report in the Wall Street Journal suggests that Apple is getting ready to drop the port in favor of USB-C.

Apple introduced the Lightning connector back in September 2012 (you'd say 5 years is a long time, but is it?) along with the iPhone 5 and since then it has become the standard port for all iOS devices. For the Mac though, it seems Apple is being a tad more progressive shifting away from the MagSafe and Thunderbolt to the USB-C port.

Apple pulls in money from licensing the Lightning port through its "Made for iPhone" program so a shift is a bit strange.

But it seems like Apple will be creating a new division in its iPhone line, opening up the scope for new peripherals and apps, this could also have the potential issue of causing some chaos with a new port.


The move (if true) could be a brave one from Apple and will definitely lead to speculation that Apple wants to create a separate "iPhone Pro" line. 

We could also see Apple adding USB-C to the iPad, and thus taking the device more in the direction of being a more fully-featured tablet computer to compete with the likes of Microsoft's Surface line.

If it does turn out to be true, it will raise an interesting debate as to Apple's plans for the lightning connector, but i guess there's still time.






The two top brands are at war again. The upcoming iPhone 8 and Samsung Galaxy S8 are dominating headlines, but which phone will come out on top?

Apple thinks they will.

According to recent iPhone 8 rumors, Apple is set to include a 3D laser scanner on the front of the iPhone 8 to unlock the device, as opposed to the sometimes-finicky Touch ID technology. 



Apple Insider reveals that there Face recognition might be the way with Apple. 
And with Apple's reported acquisition of Israeli startup RealFace, which boasts the "world's best facial recognition," according to its website, which has since been taken down this looks like Apple's trump card. 

 RealFace software, according to reports, provides "frictionless face recognition" directly on a relatively low-powered device like an iPhone. According to the company, it aims to "offer customers a smart biometric log-in solution" for mobile deployment.

And what this means is that while the Galaxy S8 is going to have a facial recognition feature, it'll have nothing on the iPhone 8.

READ: WIRELESS CHARGING COMING TO THE iPHONE


Going by this definition, RealFace has a lot in common with Google's Tango or at least it seems that way. Tango also uses a combination of cameras and depth sensors to enable many of the same scenarios in phones like the Lenovo Phab 2 Pro. Asus has also announced its own Google Tango phone, the Zenfone AR.

The iPhone 8 with all its awesome features has been rumored to cost over a thousand dollars when it is finally released, but with all they stuff that they plan to chuck into it, can you really blame them?







As anticipation heightens for the launch of the iPhone 8 and the Samsung Galaxy 8, new reports indicate that the hardware update could be the largest so far.

What this means is that there will be large-scale updates for both the Apple and Samsung flagships that would leave their predecessors in the dust in terms of software as well as hardware features.



An example of this is the expected edge-to-edge displays, which will eliminate the conventional home buttons present in the earlier generations of the two smartphones.


Also it is expected that the displays of Apple iPhone 8 and Samsung Galaxy S8 will cover the front of the smartphone and have a front camera, front-facing speaker and fingerprint sensor underneath the display.

READ: WIRELESS CHARGING COMING TO THE iPHONE?


Furthermore, according to reports, the tech giant Samsung may be making the edge-to-edge OLEDs for both the phones. In addition, it is said that the two devices will come with voice assistants. It is expected that the iPhone 8 smartphone will come with an enhanced version of Siri.


Samsung will, of course, have a response to this with their Bixby voice assistant that will replace its S-Voice function according to SamMobile. In addition, Samsung and Apple will go for 10mm processors instead of 14mm processors for the forthcoming smartphones.


It is said that the new processors will offer battery and performance improvements to the smartphones. Speculations are doing the rounds that the Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus will have an identical footprint to the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge.


We expect the Samsung Galaxy in April if online reports are anything to go by, but we'll have to wait a little longer for the iPhone which won't reportedly hit shelves till much later in the year.





It's one we've been waiting for and according to some new reports it just might be coming to pass.

The iPhone might be getting wireless charging.

In the simplest of terms this just means that your phone can be charged without the need to plug the device into a socket.

Apple has joined forces with an industry group called the Wireless Power Consortium in the biggest indication to date that it is working on the technology. 

it is speculated that Apple is going to add inductive wireless charging to the iPhone 8, or iPhone X. 

READ: iPHONE 8 BATTERY WILL BE INSANELY IMPRESSIVE

Earlier reports had initially suggested that Apple would bypass the technology, used in Samsung's Galaxy, Google's Nexus and Microsoft's Lumia, and wait until it had developed long-range wireless charging.

Although Apple wasn't previously a member of the Consortium, which develops industry standards, it does already use Qi wireless charging for its Watch.

Separate rumours about the iPhone 8, due for release this year in celebration of the device's 10th anniversary, suggest it could have a curved edged OLED screen, a bit like Samsung's Galaxy S7 Edge. The rumours have gained weight recently with Apple reportedly purchasing 60 million OLED display panels from Samsung Display.



It seems Apple is also going to ditch the home button on the iPhone X to make way for an edge-to-edge display. 





One of Donald Trump's main points when running for the office of the President of the United States was to create more jobs for Americans and one of the ways he planned to do this was to have more companies establish their manufacturing outfits in the United States.

Apple has been one of Trump's targets as he tried to get them to reduce manufacturing in China and open a factory in the USA.

Well, according to quotes attributed to Apple's CFO Luca Maestri this won't be happening anytime soon.

READ: iPHONE 8's BATTERY WILL BE INSANELY IMPRESSIVE

Speaking at a Goldman Sachs conference yesterday, he answered a question about overseas manufacturing and according to the Verge was quoted as saying; “One of the points that we are making in Washington is the fact that we have been a very large contributor to the US economy during the last decade,” Maestri said. “We made billions of investments in the United States. In the last 10 years, we created about 2 million jobs in this country — in the developer community in our retail stores in our call centers and through the supplier chain.”

Maestri went on to talk more about Apple’s US-located call centers, and how it is “very, very difficult to speculate” on Apple’s manufacturing plans given that Trump has outlined no specific policies yet. He did, however, point out that a border tax on imported goods “would end up burdening the end consumer.”

So it seems that Apple will not be playing ball with Trump especially considering that they'll have to move around a lot to make it to America which could prove cumbersome.






Apple's Siri has been a major feature of the iPhone for years now (from the iPhone 4S) and most will agree that she's pretty damn smart. If reports are anything to go by, then she might be in line for a major upgrade which will in turn make her smarter than ever.


According to a report on Digitimes, the Assistant could well come with a lot of major upgrade. This is in line numerous rumors that the next iPhone, possibly called the iPhone 8, will mark its 10-year anniversary with big changes like an edge-to-edge display and glass body along with a smarter Siri that can learn your behavior.
READ: SIRI CAN NOW SEND YOU MONEY USING PAYPAL

Apple have not confirmed this story yet meaning it may not be the case, or they're keeping their cards close to their chest.

At this time Siri is behind its major competitor, Google's combination of voice search, Google Now and Google's AI Assistant.

While Siri has included incremental updates and features since "she" was first introduced back in 2011. Siri can't answer follow-up questions or access different applications like Google Assistant can making her fall short of Google's little bot (Google's probably smirking at this).

So if these changes are made to Siri in 2017 and she is given the AI treatment, then it is safe to say that Siri will be able to go toe to toe with any other assistant in the market (and probably win)



For people who have to work using their phones or do other things, key prediction is a very important tool in going about thins.

So when composing emails or shooting off a rapid text, you'll need all the speed you can get. 

When the subject matter is long or there are long words, phrases, or titles that you use a lot, all you need to do is create a shortcut, so that your keyboard can automatically type them out in full for you. 

You can also use text replacement to type hard to find symbols like fractions, and other emoticons that aren’t available on the standard keyboard. 

Check out below the steps to creating a keyboard shortcut.















Step 1: Go to Settings > General > Keyboard > Text Replacement.

Step 2: Tap the + sign on the top right.

Step 3: Fill in the phrase you would like the iPhone to insert for you, and the shortcut you would like to use.

Step 4: Tap Save on the top right.
Steps to delete or change keyboard shortcuts



Step 1: Go to Settings > General > Keyboard > Text Replacement.

Step 2: To delete, tap Edit on the lower left, and then tap the red minus symbol.

Step 3: To change the shortcut, just tap the shortcut and phrase, make your changes, and then tap Save on the top right.

Tada! And that's about it for what you need to do as regards shortcuts. Now whenever you type your shortcut the phrase will pop up above the keyboard, then you can select it. 




So with that now you can just have a whole lot more fun with your typing, whether it's for play or for work.








One of the more interesting features of 2016's iPhone 7 was the missing headphone jack. Apple, in their infinite wisdom, decided to go wireless and the Airpods were born.

The fear for the Airpods were that they could easily go missing despite coming with a convenient storage case with some magnetic security features, making it slightly more difficult to lose one, or both, of the untethered ‘Pods. The case also doubles as an recharging station, allowing for convenient power-ups on the go. 


Of course they will get lost at some point (not for everyone, but a fair few) and while they can be replaced, they are certainly not cheap.




The Airpods are protected by a one-year warranty. Service for any AirPods with diminished battery capacity within said time frame will be free. Battery maintenance that falls outside this one-year warranty period will run you $49(N15,500) and the cost for replacing a lost AirPod or AirPod charging case will set you back a cool $69 (around N22,000).

In case your situation is slightly different and you need to only replace your AirPod case, an individual earbud, or both AirPods you can either go to the Apple Store (obviously) the other option is to go to a third-party retailer (not as advisable) but they will probably replace your earbuds if they fall under warranty. 

Another option is to contact Apple Support. This requires you to provide the serial number for your product. This is the best option if you do not live relatively close to an Apple Store. You can also utilize Apple Support in tandem with the Apple’s Express Replacement policy for added convenience. You'd have to first determine that your product still falls under warranty before doing this however. If you’re eligible, Apple will ship a replacement AirPod or AirPod case to a designated location of your own choosing. You’ll just need to mail the defective product to Apple within 10 days of Apple’s shipping date.

So with this, hopefully you're not as scared of losing your Airpods.



It took a while, but here we are; you can now purchase you Apple airpods-- and just in time too, Christmas is just around the corner.

If you're looking for it you'll just have to fork out a cool $159 (about N50,000) and you could get it in time for the festive season with the advertised delivery date at Dec. 21. 

The arrival comes soon after it was claimed that AirPods were only "days" from launch. The product was first announced alongside the iPhone 7 lineup in September, but missed its originally advertised shipping window.




According to AppleInsider, the company said that there was not a chance that they were going to miss a holiday season release. Additionally, several venues have received pre-release sets for review.

"We're ready to go any time," one AppleInsider retail source said. "We've got a few pairs for customer demonstration that we're just waiting on the word to start with."


Early reviews suggest that it is cool device with the wireless feature and rumours of an audio syncing problem were laid to rest.



The product features Apple's proprietary W1 chip for more robust Bluetooth audio connections and easy iCloud-based pairing. The W1 chip is also featured in the previously-launched Powerbeats3 and Beats Solo3 Wireless headphones, and will also be featured in the forthcoming BeatsX, though the latter has also seen delays.


The AirPods, however, feature unique technology that goes beyond the W1. The wireless earbuds are also set to include beam-forming microphones, accelerometers, infrared sensors, and a small charging and carrying case that will provide more power on the go, as well as the mechanism to sync with an iPhone.


The only problem with the airpods is how easy they will be to lose. So before you fork out 50gs please be sure you know exactly where you're going to keep them at all times.



Everyone has been freaking out over the potential next year release of the iPhone 8 with its many features and bells and whistles.
So it would definitely come as a huge disappointment to fans to find out that the iPhone 8 might not be coming next year.
The reason for this is pretty simple: There are just too many planned upgrades and features to fit it into a schedule for next year.
According to Apple’s suppliers from Taiwan, next year’s model won’t be called the iPhone 8 but the iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s Plus instead. 
And for the most part that's understandable because the rumours have stated that the iPhone 8 will come with OLED screens, a no-button fingerprint scanner, all-glass design, and wireless charging.
That's a lot of changes and it seems that the Taiwanese components suppliers can't meet up with all this just yet. 
So consumers will have to console themselves with the iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s Plus. 
On the plus side (hehe), it seems the iPhone 7s and 7s Plus will come with a processor upgrade. Instead of the Apple A10 that debuted this year, the iPhone 7s will be powered by an A11. Leaks and rumors about that chip are scarce at this point, aside from a switch to a 10 nanometer fabrication process. That means a smaller chip with more efficient power management, and more room for other silicon on the motherboard.
Other than that, however, the iPhone 7s might offer nothing new. No glass body and, therefore, no wireless charging. Those who weren’t entirely enamored by the iPhone 7 this year might have little incentive to upgrade next year as well, which might not do Apple’s sales and earnings any favors.
So it seems those salivating over the possibility of an iPhone 8 might have to wait a little bit longer.

Emoji are generally fun to use being as they convey a message through visual representation and it's why memes and gifs are such a big hit nowadays.
Whatsapp has this new gif thing it does that is pretty cool, but Apple also have their own weapon to get ahead of the queue. The company is rushing to be the first major smartphone maker to support Unicode 9.0. 
Also with the upcoming release of iOS 10.2, Apple will add more than 70 new emoji to iPhones and iPads around the world. Included among them are some hotly anticipated additions such as the face palm, shrug, selfie, lying face, clown, dancing man and plenty more. 
What the iPhone has is a secret keyboard that’s already on your phone, and it lets you send all sorts of fun text-based emoticons. They're called kaomoji.
or you know...these guys...  ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
Enabling the hidden kaomoji keyboard in your iPhone really couldn’t be easier. In fact, you already went through all the steps the first time you enabled the emoji keyboard all those years ago. Here’s how it works:
  • Open the Settings app
  • Tap General
  • Scroll down and tap Keyboard
  • Tap Keyboards at the top of the screen
  • Now select Add New Keyboard…
  • From the list of languages, choose Japanese and then Kana
That’s it. Now you can access the new emoticon keyboard the same way you switch from Apple’s standard text keyboard to the emoji keyboard. Just select the Kana keyboard and press the ^_^ button in the bottom row to access all the kaomoji. 
So if you want to switch it up when chatting and commenting, you have something to help with that now.








Apple has always been a smooth operator literally. Of all the criticisms thrown at the iPhone, one can never say that the phone doesn't perform almost flawlessly.

To achieve this, Apple develops its own silicon and optimizes the software to ensure a smooth iOS experience. 


And now it seems Apple will be raising the bar come 2017 as a new generation of mobile processors will arrive, and the iPhone 8’s chip will be one of the devices expected to pack an even faster and more efficient CPU.

Apple is expected to make the jump from 16nm chip technology to 10nm chip technology. TSMC will manufacture the 10nm A11 chip that will equip the iPhone 8 next year, a new Digitimes report, something we heard of before.



According to Digitimes, TSMC is expected to post a 3% sequential drop in consolidated revenues in the first quarter of 2017, thanks to Apple’s cutback in 16nm chip orders for the iPhone 7.

But the foundry’s 10nm process technology will soon start generating revenue. According to sources, 10nm manufacturing will start during the same quarter and should mitigate the impact of Apple’s cutting iPhone 7 chip orders.


The A10 Fusion chip used in the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus was better than anything competitors had out there even after man tests and comparisons and with the advent of the A11, it seems Apple will leave competitors even further in the dust.


Will the next 5.5 inch iphone also referred to as the iphone 7+ come with 3GB of RAM (Random Access Memory) ?.....well we are not so sure but we could at least hope for it.

According to KGI securities analyst Ming-chi Kuo for the second time now as claimed that the next iphone would come with a 3GB RAM for improved performance.Another report came from DigiTimes saying the same thing and this was what they had to say;
"Increasing built-in memory capacity at next-generation smartphones, including new iPhone devices, will further ramp up demand for memory products in the third quarter, said sources, noting that the mobile RAM capacity of the next-generation iPhone is expected to increase to 3GB from 2GB previously".
 Most reports from DigiTimes are sometimes mix tracked concerning Apple's upcoming product plans, but its supply chain sources have provided accurate information on occasion in the past.The increased RAM should prove valuable given the camera improvements expected with the new iPhones, including a dual-lens system on the 5.5-inch model.
