Why the iPhone 6 Has the Same Base Memory As the iPhone 5
Memory can cost much, when you sell tens of million devices like Apple do. Worldwide production capacity is not easily extensible and Appleâ(TM)s main competitor (Samsung) has its own source.

Except Samsung who manufactures their own stuff...

The president of Sweden was murdered walking home from a cinema with no protection, though.
