A new report indicates that Apple is planning on including 2GB of RAM in the new iPhone 6s and 6s Plus, along with the Apple SIM Card that allows freedom of choice among carriers.

New details are emerging regarding the new iteration of Apple's wildly popular iPhone. The iPhone 6s and 6s Plus are expected to be released this September, and among the new features could be 2GB of RAM as well as the Apple SIM card.

The Apple SIM was first introduced in the Apple iPad Air 2, but has not yet been included in any of Apple's iPhone upgrades. Apple SIM allows users to select the carrier of their choice out of the box, in the Settings options.

Wireless carriers are not expected to be pleased, as they clearly prefer requiring customers who purchase the device to be committed to their specific wireless service. The carriers refused to completely cooperate with the new system when the iPad Air 2 was released, with Verizon opting out altogether, AT&T "dedicating" cards purchased through the carrier to their service, and Sprint not carrying the card in their stores. Customers could work around these restrictions by purchasing their device directly from Apple.

The additional RAM is also an interesting development. The report of a doubling of RAM is consistent with our previous report in January of a rumor that Apple would not only be doubling the amount of RAM but would be upgrading the RAM type to DDR4 RAM which doubles the speed of the DDR3 RAM used in the current iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus.

The result of using 2GB of DDR4 RAM would be a quadrupling of performance, potentially necessary to run a radically upgraded version of Apple's mobile operating system in the form of iOS 9. The additional RAM is also expected to have an impact on cost, however. Most of the changes to the newest versions of the iPhone are expected to be internal, as is the usual pattern with the "s" versions of the device.
