Apple’s 2014 Keynote has come and gone. The event, streamed by thousands of viewers worldwide, witnessed the launch of the Apple iPhone 6 and Apple iPhone 6 smartphones.

Much was said about the features of the two phones but Apple didn’t seem to remember (or didn’t want to include) two things — RAM and battery size.

Well, thanks to the guys at iFixit, the two smartphones went under the knife and most of their internals were revealed for everybody to see.

iPhone 6 Plus

The 5.5″ iPhone showed the stuff it’s made as iFixit went for the most important thing concealed inside that 7.1mm-thin body, the chipset.

They found out the iPhone 6 Plus was using an Apple A8 APL1011 System-on chip, while the memory is a Elpida 1GB LPDDR3 RAM — a TSMC-made 20nm Apple A8 chipset and 1GB of RAM. Further findings revealed the phone is lit up by a 2915mAh battery which we knew even before the new iPhones debuted.

The iPhone 6 didn’t have much alteration in terms of processing hardware. The Apple smartphone sports the exact same Apple A8 APL1011 chipset on a 20nm process as well as 1GB of RAM.
