Apple to ditch cheap parts because they're ruining phones

10 November 2014

iphone-6 Apple are going to be ditching the cheaper flash storage components they have in their iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus devices. Not because they charge a premium for a high-end product and think the innards should reflect that.

Rather, a number of iPhone owners have been complaining that their phones are crashing and becoming stuck in a boot loop.

You see, a lot of users have been complaining about their iPhones crashing regularly and apps failing to open and the aforementioned boot loops, which sees phones switching themselves on-and-off. There's also been complaints that iPhones are showing blue and red screens-of-death.

Even staff at Apple stops have confessed to seeing a lot of customers bringing these problems to them, even though the company themselves haven't made an official statement about it.

Here's the techie bits for those who like to get under the hood of a phone: Apple are getting rid of the cheaper triple-cell NAND flash units in its 64GB and 128GB iPhones for multiple cell NAND flash, which is found in handsets with a smaller capacity.

Apple are going to release an update of the latest iOS to fix a load of issues, it is rumoured. We'll keep our eye out for news on it. Until then, there's a lot of frustrated iPhone owners out there.
