New report may reveal launch timing for Apple’s next-gen iPhone 6s

iPhone 6s Release Date

When many enthusiastic iPhone fans learned last year that the iPhone 6 would still feature 1GB of RAM instead of 2GB or even 3GB like many rival phones have, they were not happy. Of course, Apple typically doesn’t upgrade components simply for the sake of upgrading them, and following the device’s launch, we quickly learned that 1GB suited the iPhone 6 just fine — it absolutely slaughtered every other smartphone on the market in performance tests.

With the next-generation iPhone 6s, however, new reports suggest that Apple may have finally decided it needed more RAM to push performance and user experience to the next level. Beyond that, one new report that seemingly confirms the doubled RAM also hints at when Apple’s next iPhones will launch.

A report on Thursday claimed that Apple’s new iPhone for 2015 will include 2GB of RAM instead of 1GB, as all recent iPhone models have featured. Now, a China-based industry watcher with sources inside Apple’s supply chain has confirmed that report, adding a few more key details about the iPhone 6s in the process.

According to Kevin King, market research firm IHS Technology China’s research director, Apple’s manufacturing partners are gearing up to begin mass-producing Apple’s A9-powered iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus — if that is indeed what it will be called — in June.

The timing lines up perfectly with a late summer or early fall launch, which would be one year from the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus’ launches.

King also said that Apple has orders in place with suppliers for 230 million next-generation iPhone units, presumably over the devices’ first year of production. If accurate, the orders indicate that Apple is gearing up for some nice continued growth as it develops 2016’s iPhone 7 models.
