In iFonebox forum, I once wrote a post about the iPhone 6 Plus reboot problem. The post showed us a test made by netizens and when they installed 1211 apps in iPhone 6 Plus, 128 GB, iPhone 6 Plus will reboot frequently until they deleted the apps to 669, this problem would not happen. Why? I don’t know. However, recently, iPhone 6 Plus and iPhone 6 have been put to test and let’s check the result.
The issue seems to be that Apple isn’t using the most stable internal storage memory, but the intricately dense triple level cell (TLC) NANDflash in the 128 GB version instead of the MLC(Multi level Cell). Is there a real difference between TLC and MLC flash in the iPhone 6 Plus and will it make major differences to performance?
It is said that TLC flash can store much more information than single level cell (SLC) or a multi level cell (MLC) solid state flash, but is more volatile, and more prone to errors. It is more affordable, though, and that might be the reason Apple went with it for its most memorable version of the 6 Plus, instead of MLC, like on most other iDevices.
In the test, the result shows that not only iPhone 6 Plus has been used TLC, some iPhone 6 with 64 GB has also used TLC flash. But iPhone 6 with 16 GB all are used MLC flash. It is hard for you to trace whether your iPhone 6 is TLC flash or MLC flash. It is said that if your iPhone 6 is jail broken, you can install a plugein named OpenSSH in Cydia. Otherwise, you have to disassemble your iPhone to check. In that way, you will lose the chance for the warranty.
So after read this news, what do you think of the iPhone 6 Plus or iPhone 6? Comment here if you want to.
