How to find out the amount of RAM yourself
To do this, you need a benchmark or other special program that determines the characteristics of the device, for example, AIDA64. Let’s use the latter. Install the application from the App Store, launch it and open the “Memory” section. Inside the subsection “RAM information” in the “Total RAM” line, the amount of installed RAM will be displayed.
What is the amount of RAM in the iPhone 11, 11 Pro, 11 Pro Max, SE 2020, 12 mini, 12, 12 Pro, 12 Pro Max and other models
Apple has traditionally been silent about some of the iPhone’s specifications. Neither the Apple website, nor on the box, nor in the documentation for the device indicate the battery capacity and the amount of RAM of the smartphone. Information about these characteristics can be obtained using special applications or learn from this article.
The amount of RAM directly affects the performance of the device. The more RAM a smartphone has, the faster applications start, less freezes occur, and more programs can run in the background at the same time. And although iOS is less demanding on “hardware” than Android, when buying a new iPhone, I want to know what type of memory and how much is installed in a smartphone.

Home / Apple / iPhone / How much random access memory (RAM) is in the iPhone 12 mini, 12, 12 Pro, 12 Pro Max, SE 2020, 11, 11 Pro, 11 Pro Max, XS, XS Max, XR, X, 8, 7 and other models
The announcement of the new iPhones, as always, divided the audience all over the world into enthusiastic fans who rushed to take their places in line for a novelty, haters who repeatedly convince that “the iPhone is not the same”, and, finally, everyone else for whom the exit the new generation of the most popular smartphone is a reason to think about updating your gadgets, or at least take a closer look at what is happening in this field.
Of the new products this year, obviously, the iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max are of the greatest interest to the public. But we decided to take our time and study the “bug” in real life, so the corresponding review will be later. And now we offer you a detailed test of the iPhone 11, which is no less, and in some ways even more interesting than the sensational Pro models. simply because most of the new technologies (night mode, ultra-wide-angle camera, a new processor) are presented here.
The iPhone 11 has a 6.1 ″ IPS display with a 1792 × 828 resolution, giving a pixel density of just 326 ppi. Same options as iPhone XR. However, we decided to test the display of the novelty to the fullest extent of our methodology. Alexey Kudryavtsev, editor of the “Monitors” and “Projectors and TV” sections, got down to business.
The front surface of the screen is made in the form of a glass plate with a mirror-smooth surface, resistant to scratches. Judging by the reflection of objects, the anti-glare properties of the screen are slightly better than that of the Google Nexus 7 (2013) (hereinafter simply Nexus 7). For clarity, here is a photo in which a white surface is reflected in the turned off screens (on the left. Nexus 7, on the right. Apple iPhone 11, then they can be distinguished by their size):
The screen of the Apple iPhone 11 is slightly darker (the brightness in the photos is 106 versus 112 for the Nexus 7). The doubling of reflected objects in the screen of the Apple iPhone 11 is very weak, which indicates that there is no air gap between the layers of the screen (more specifically, between the outer glass and the surface of the matrix). Due to the smaller number of boundaries (such as glass / air) with very different refractive indices, such screens look better in conditions of intense ambient light, but their repair in the case of cracked outer glass is much more expensive, since the entire screen has to be changed. On the outer surface of the screen there is a special oleophobic (grease-repellent) coating (effective, slightly better than that of the Nexus 7), so fingerprints are much easier to remove, and appear at a slower speed than in the case of ordinary glass.
With manual brightness control and with the display of the white field on the whole screen, the maximum brightness value was about 670 cd / m², the minimum. 2.1 cd / m². The maximum brightness is very high and, given the excellent anti-glare properties, the readability of the screen even on a sunny day outdoors will be at a good level. In complete darkness, the brightness can be lowered to a comfortable value. In the presence of automatic brightness control according to the light sensor (apparently, it is located under the grille of the front speaker), which is enabled by default. In automatic mode, when the ambient light conditions change, the screen brightness both increases and decreases. The operation of this function depends on the position of the brightness adjustment slider: with it, the user sets the desired brightness level for the current conditions. If you do not change anything, then in complete darkness the brightness drops to 3 cd / m2 (a bit dark), in an office lit with artificial light (about 550 lx), the screen brightness is set to 115-155 cd / m2 (normal), in a very bright environment ( corresponds to illumination on a clear day outdoors, but without direct sunlight. 20,000 lux or a little more) rises to 670 cd / m² (to the maximum, this is what you need). The result did not quite suit us, so in the dark we slightly moved the brightness slider up (in the quick access menu) and for the above three conditions we got 15, 130-150 and 670 cd / m² (ideal). It turns out that the automatic brightness control function works adequately and it is possible to adjust the nature of the brightness change to the user’s requirements. Note that the light sensor is very sensitive and distinguishes between conditions of almost complete darkness and very, very low illumination. At any brightness level, there is no significant backlight modulation, so there is no screen flicker either.
This smartphone uses an IPS-type matrix. The micrographs show the typical IPS subpixel structure:
For comparison, you can see the gallery of photomicrographs of screens used in mobile technology.
The screen has good viewing angles without significant color shift, even with large gaze deviations from the perpendicular to the screen and without tint inversion. For comparison, we present photographs in which the screens of the Apple iPhone 11 and the second participant of the comparison display the same images, while the brightness of the screens was initially set to about 200 cd / m2, and the color balance on the camera was forced to 6500 K.
Note the good uniformity of brightness and color tone of the white field.
The color balance is slightly different, the color saturation is normal. Recall that a photograph cannot serve as a reliable source of information about the quality of color rendition and is provided only for a conditional visual illustration. The reason is that the spectral sensitivity of the camera matrix does not exactly match this characteristic of human vision.
Now at an angle of approximately 45 degrees to the plane and to the side of the screen.
It can be seen that the colors did not change much on both screens and the contrast remained at a high level. White box:
The brightness at the angle of the screens decreased (at least 4 times, based on the difference in exposure), but in the case of the Apple iPhone 11, the drop in brightness is less. The black field, when deviated diagonally, is lightened to an average degree (slightly more than in the Nexus 7) and acquires a purple tint. The photos below demonstrate this (the brightness of the white areas in the direction perpendicular to the plane of the screens is about the same!):
When viewed from a perpendicular view, the uniformity of the black field is excellent:
The contrast (approximately in the center of the screen) is high. about 1500: 1. Black-white-black response time is 22ms (11ms on 11ms off). The transition between gray tones of 25% and 75% (based on the numerical value of the color) and back takes 36 ms in total. The gamma curve, plotted using 32 points at equal intervals in terms of the numerical value of the shade of gray, showed no blockage in either the highlights or the shadows. The exponent of the approximating power function is 2.26, which is slightly higher than the standard value of 2.2. In this case, the real gamma curve deviates little from the power-law dependence:
The components are well separated to achieve a wide color gamut. However, in this case, the gamut is neatly adjusted to the sRGB borders. As a result, visually the colors have natural saturation.
This applies to images that have an sRGB profile or no profile at all. However, native to modern top-end Apple devices is the Display P3 color space with slightly richer greens and reds. Display P3 is based on SMPTE DCI-P3 but has a D65 white point and a gamma curve of approximately 2.2. In addition, the manufacturer claims that since iOS 9.3 color management is supported at the system level, which makes it easier for iOS applications to correctly display images with a prescribed color profile. Indeed, adding the Display P3 profile to the test images (JPG and PNG files), we got a wider color gamut than sRGB (output in Safari):
Note that the coordinates of the primary colors almost exactly coincided with those prescribed for the DCI-P3 standard. Let’s look at the spectra in the case of test images with the Display P3 profile:
It can be seen that in this case there is minimal cross-mixing of components mainly in the red area, that is, the color space native to the Apple iPhone 11 screen is practically equal to Display P3.
The grayscale balance is good, as the color temperature is not much higher than the standard 6500K, and the deviation from Spectra is blackbody (ΔE) less than 3, which is considered an excellent indicator for a consumer device. At the same time, the color temperature and ΔE vary little from shade to shade. this has a positive effect on the visual assessment of the color balance. (The darkest areas of the gray scale can be ignored, since the color balance there is not very important, and the error in measuring color characteristics at low brightness is large.)
This Apple device has a Night Shift function that makes the picture warmer at night (how much warmer. the user indicates). For a description of why this might be useful, see the iPad Pro 9.7 ″ article. In any case, when having fun with a tablet or smartphone at night, it is better to lower the screen brightness to a minimum, but still comfortable level, and there is no point in turning the screen yellow with the Night Shift setting.
There is a True Tone function, which, if enabled, adjusts the color balance to the environmental conditions. For example, we activated it and placed the smartphone under LED lights with cool white light, resulting in values of 4.0 for ΔE and 6750 K for color temperature. Under a halogen incandescent lamp (warm light). 3.5 and 6000 K, respectively, that is, the color temperature has become lower, and the balance has become closer to the radiation spectrum of an absolutely black body. The function works as expected. Note that the current standard is to calibrate display devices to a white point of 6500 K, but in principle, correction for the color temperature of external light can be useful if you want to achieve a better match of the image on the screen with what is seen on paper (or on any medium. on which colors are formed by the reflection of incident light) in the current conditions.
In terms of the frame output criterion, the playback quality of video files on the device’s screen is very good, since frames (or groups of frames) can be output at even intervals and without frame drops, up to 4K files with 60 fps. When playing video files with a resolution of 1920 by 1080 (1080p) on a smartphone screen, the image of the video file itself is displayed exactly at the height of the screen (in landscape orientation). The brightness range displayed on the screen is the actual brightness range for the video file. Note that this smartphone has support for hardware decoding of H.265 files with a color depth of 10 bits per color, while displaying gradients on the screen is carried out with much better quality than in the case of 8-bit files. HDR file output is also supported.
Let’s summarize. The screen has a very high maximum brightness and has excellent anti-reflective properties, so the device can be used outdoors without any problems, even on a sunny summer day. In complete darkness, the brightness can be lowered to a comfortable level. It is also acceptable to use the mode with automatic brightness adjustment, which works adequately. The advantages of the screen include an effective oleophobic coating, no air gap in the layers of the screen and no flicker, good black stability to deviation of the gaze from the perpendicular to the screen plane, excellent uniformity of the black field, high contrast, as well as support for sRGB color gamut (with the participation of the OS) and good color balance. There are no significant shortcomings. The screen quality is very high.
iPhone 11 is the direct successor to the iPhone XR. And, in fact, outwardly it differs very little, except, of course, the module with cameras. As with the XR, the smartphone comes in a range of color options. However, instead of blue and coral, the aforementioned purple and green appeared.
But the four matching colors. white, black, yellow and red (Product Red). now look different. They became less flashy, softer, milky, matte. For example, yellow is now more banana. And purple is light lilac with a gray tint. It looks much more restrained and noble.
The back surface is covered with glass, the front, of course, too. The location of the buttons and connectors has not changed compared to the iPhone XR. The main innovation is cameras. There are now two of them, they are taken out on a separate square transparent platform, where they also have a flash and an additional microphone, which was not there before.
Thanks to the cameras, the new iPhone can be easily distinguished from the previous ones. And the principle here is simple: if there are two of them and they stand separately, this is the iPhone 11, if there are three, then the iPhone 11 Pro / Max Pro. In general, not to be confused with predecessors.
True, this also means that new covers are needed. And here Apple’s assortment is still modest: in the case of the iPhone 11, you will have to choose from a transparent silicone version and an opaque colored silicone. There are no leather cases yet. The photo below shows how the iPhone 11 looks in a silicone transparent case.
Returning to the design, we note that, like the iPhone XR, the frame around the screen of the new item is much larger than that of its older counterparts. And this is not nitpicking, it just really catches the eye.
In general, the design is the same XR, with all its advantages and disadvantages, except for the nature of the color (and their range) and the camera module.
As noted, the iPhone 11 has two rear cameras: a wide-angle and an ultra-wide-angle, while the XR only had one. In addition, the new iPhone has new software modes: the main one is night. We took comparison shots on the iPhone 11 and XS Max. The results were commented on by Anton Soloviev.
The iPhone camera, like a year ago, is good in the light and acceptable in the twilight. At the current module parameters, this is a clear ceiling, and Apple reached it several years ago. It is very good that the company understands this and improves the software. However, the experienced eye can still see all the “delights” of digital image enhancement, such as sharpening on wires, foliage and grass. The sensor and optics are simply not able to resolve such small details, so the program simply draws them. Looks believable from a distance.

IPhone XS Max Snapshot Gallery:
As you can see from the laboratory test, the camera has practically not changed over the year. The slight differences between the two curves are just the result of the harder work of the program. over, such zeal is not always justified.
In this regard, the portrait mode works very interesting. Of course, it will not create a unique and beautiful boke, but it will help to highlight the person’s figure in the background. Upon closer examination, the digital nature of this boke catches the eye, and blurring in places creeps into the person, but, on the other hand, it is unlikely that someone for some reason will need to deal with this closer examination.
The main innovation is the night mode. Advanced users of cameras with manual mode will certainly not see anything special in it, but smartphone users will notice that the camera is finally starting to shoot relatively adequately at night. Of course, the pictures by themselves did not become better, the program just learned to work more accurately with exposure, curves and saturation in night scenarios. The effects of slow shutter speeds and high ISO values have not gone away, and the pictures are still very noisy. However, in miniature they look pretty.
The left image can be easily obtained from the right one using the standard tools of the graphic editor: contrast, shadows, gamma, saturation. So there is no trick here. But for users who like to just shoot and lay out the frame, this is already a plus.
This year, an ultra-wide-angle module appeared in Apple smartphones. Making wide-angle optics at this size is a big risk. Even “adult” shirikovs sin with poor sharpness and detail at the frame periphery due to geometric distortions, and in such a form factor the negative effects will only intensify. However, the Apple programmers did a good job. you can see how hard it was for them to defeat the chromatic aberrations at the edges. Of course, it is better not to look at the edges and especially the corners of the frame, but for video shooting, for example, this quality is quite enough. Yes, and photography is not so bad at times: it all depends on the composition and on the size when viewed. It is better not to use this module at night, the night mode works well only on the main camera. The ultra-wide-angle sensor also makes a lot of noise, which, coupled with the low resolution of the optics, turns all the details into a mess.
Let’s add a few subjective impressions to the above.
First, the night mode does produce a wow effect. Yes, it is clear that miracles do not happen, but even on the smartphone screen you can see the difference between what was and what has become. In this case, the mode is activated automatically and the shutter speed is also selected by itself (although it can be adjusted if desired). The maximum shutter speed we noticed was 5 seconds. But more often. 1-3 seconds.
Secondly, the vaunted smooth switching between cameras still has one weak point. Yes, the transition is visually smooth, but as long as you move from 0.5 × to 1 ×, digital zoom works, that is, the picture deteriorates significantly. Therefore, it is better not to use it unnecessarily.
Also note that the front camera now shoots 4K video and 12 megapixel photos.
Packaging and equipment
IPhone 11 box is made in traditional Apple style. The image of the iPhone on the packaging clearly demonstrates the color and model: in this case, it is purple. as it is called on the site, although it is more likely a light gray-lilac. However, let’s talk about this further.
The iPhone 11 package does not differ from the previous several generations of iPhones: 5V 1A power supply, Lightning cable, EarPods with Lightning connector and a set of leaflets.
It’s a shame that Apple did not provide the kit with an increased power charger, only the Pro models have it. It would seem like such a trifle to save on this, but here’s another reminder that the iPhone 11 is not quite a flagship.
RAM in iPhone. compare RAM
When choosing a computer or laptop, the buyer pays special attention to the technical characteristics, one of which is RAM (in the common people, RAM, RAM or RAM).
IPhones are also equipped with RAM, the amount of which, as in computers, affects the speed of information processing and the number of operations. Accordingly, the more RAM, the faster the iPhone “thinks”.
In the iPhone, memory is divided into permanent and operational, these are two completely different parameters. The permanent memory of the iPhone is a repository of all information (photos, ringtones, music, films), you can see more about it here.
From the moment the very first model of the iPhone appeared, to this day, neither on the box nor in the settings you will find the size of the RAM. Apple does not specify this parameter anywhere, although I have always wondered how much RAM is in the iPhone. In order to determine the amount of RAM, we installed the application:
I managed to see how much RAM is in the iPhone 7.2 GB.
The system utility shows the amount of iPhone RAM in the Memory section, click on this area and see: Memory (RAM): 2002 Mb. This means that our test iPhone 7 is equipped with 2 gigabytes (Gb) of RAM.
RAM can be cleaned, makes your phone slower. Clear RAM in iOS
The application is free, accordingly, any user with his Apple ID can download this program and see the real amount of RAM on his iPhone or iPad.
If you do not want to install the application, you can find out the amount of RAM by the serial number. Enter your serial number on the AppleSerialNumberInfo website, press Enter and see the Installed RAM subsection for the amount of iPhone RAM.
The amount of RAM in iPhones:
For those who are just thinking about which phone model to buy, we have made a list of random access memory (RAM) for all iPhone models, allowing us to understand which RAM is in which model:
- iPhone. 128 Mb EDRAM
- iPhone 3G. 128 Mb EDRAM
- iPhone 3GS. 256 Mb EDRAM
- iPhone 4. 512 Mb EDRAM
- iPhone 4S. 512 Mb EDRAM
- iPhone 5. 1 Gb LPDDR2
- iPhone 5S. 1 Gb LPDDR2
- iPhone 5C. 1 Gb LPDDR2
- iPhone 6. 1 Gb LPDDR3
- iPhone 6 Plus. 1 Gb LPDDR3
- iPhone 6S. 2 Gb LPDDR4
- iPhone 6S Plus. 2 Gb LPDDR4
- iPhone SE. 2 Gb LPDDR4
- iPhone 7. 2 Gb LPDDR4
- iPhone 7 Plus. 3 Gb LPDDR4
- iPhone 8. 3 Gb LPDDR4
- iPhone 8 Plus. 3 Gb LPDDR4
- iPhone X. 3 Gb LPDDR4
Install the application, see how much RAM there is, then check the list above and you can save yourself or loved ones from some kind of fraud when buying an iPhone.
I don’t know how from the factory, but some craftsmen shove old hardware into cases from new iPhone models, or sell the iPhone 5S as the iPhone 5SE. So, in such cases, reconciliation of RAM helps to avoid fraudulent purchase.
RAM in iPhone 5, 5S, 5C, SE
Then we were greeted by a wonderful generation of 4-inch phones. The design was very similar to the previous generation iPhone, but still there was a twist. The body of the phone was completely changed, due to which it became lighter and more pleasant to hold in hands. The larger body made it possible to significantly change the filling.
- 5: 1GB LPDDR2;
- 5S: 1GB LPDDR2;
- 5C: 1GB LPDDR2;
- SE: 2 GB LPDDR3.
Why the iPhone 11 only has 4GB RAM and Android phones have 12?
Now everything worked even faster and at the moment one of these models can be observed with very many smartphone lovers. The latest SE model has already become an upgrade for those who really love the 5S. Old building, but modern filling.
What is the amount of RAM on the iPhone?
The main advantage of all iPhones has always been the rational use of resources. iOS always tries to squeeze the most out of your phone so that you can comfortably use it.
But whatever one may say, after a couple of years you already understand that multitasking is not the same and the programs do not start so quickly. When choosing a new gadget, I suggest checking the characteristics of the desired purchase.
RAM in iPhone XS (10S), iPhone XS MAX (10S MAX), iPhone XR (10R)
It’s so good that the size of the phones has stopped and now they just come up with something new from what already exists. Something like this was done with the iPhone XS MAX. Taking the iPhone X design the dimensions of the iPhone 8 PLUS = the brand new iPhone XS MAX. In addition, there was also a budget iPhone XR.
- XS: 4GB LPDDR4;
- XS MAX: 4GB LPDDR4;
- XR: 3GB LPDDR4.
Time goes by and the size of the RAM is also growing. In some tests, the new iPhones outperform the iMac. We were certainly waiting for this, but not so soon.
How much RAM is in the iPhone 11, 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max
One of the characteristics of the iPhone, which Apple prefers not to reveal either at the presentation or after it, is the amount of RAM. It’s not that Cupertino considered it useless, it’s just that, until recently, the company’s branded smartphones could not boast of something special. At the end of the day, 2GB of RAM is something that is best not to talk about at all, even if your operating system is super-rational about device resources. Apple continued the tradition this year, but in vain.
iPhone 11 Pro. the iPhone with the largest amount of RAM
According to insider Steve Hemmerstoffer, also known as OnLeaks, this year Apple has significantly increased the amount of RAM in its smartphones. So, the iPhone 11 received 4 GB, and the 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max. 6 GB each. This upgrade really can be considered significant, since last year’s iPhone XR only had 3 GB of RAM, which, although it was enough for stable operation, was clearly not enough for bragging.
RAM iPhone 11
Partially information OnLeaks was confirmed even before the release of new products. A few days before the presentation, the results of synthetic testing of the iPhone 11 hit the Web, which showed that the smartphone is equipped with an A13 processor, about 13% more powerful than the A12, and 4 GB of RAM. This news did not cause much excitement, since the iPhone XS and XS Max had exactly the same number, which did not notice a special performance increase compared to the iPhone XR.
In addition to the amount of RAM, Hommerstoffer revealed data on the battery capacity of the 2019 iPhone. Of course, the most tangible upgrade touched the iPhone 11 Pro Max.
What battery does the iPhone 11 have
In the case of batteries, the increase was more noticeable. Anyway, in relation to the iPhone 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max, which received an additional 4 and 5 hours of battery life compared to its predecessors. Well, who will now say that the upgrade of new products turned out to be a pass-through?
In fact, it is difficult to say unequivocally why Apple immediately decided to double the RAM. It is unlikely that in a year the situation on the market of applications could have changed so much that they began to require more than 3 GB of RAM. Therefore, I would bet that Cupertino simply succumbed to the general trend, of course, provided that this information is true. After all, a company like Apple would be ashamed to show such a significant lag behind the flagships on Android, which already have 12 GB of RAM.
Previously, when the RAM was measured in hundreds of megabytes, it was easier to transfer the superiority of competitors. I would even say that by equipping the iPhone with lower RAM levels, Apple even challenged the manufacturers of Android smartphones. Say, see how fast and smooth our new iPhone is, even with half the amount of RAM. But now that Android has become really fast, the same thing is no longer rolling and it begins to really seem that Cupertino is corny lagging behind. It was possible to prove that this is not so, only by following the lead of consumers and giving what they dreamed of, especially since the price of this dream is an extra 3 GB of RAM.

How much RAM is in the iPhone 11
At the presentation on September 10, Apple did not say anything about RAM and battery capacity in new iPhones.
For many users, these are important characteristics. And when choosing smartphones, they will come in handy.
Apple has bumped up RAM in the iPhone 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max by a third. Previously, only the most expensive iPad Pro models with 1TB storage used this memory.
In terms of battery, the biggest increase in battery capacity is seen in the iPhone 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max. Apple says the iPhone 11 Pro Max lasts 5 hours longer than the iPhone XS Max. 
How the iPhone 12’s RAM grew
All iPhone 12 models have RAM in Xcode 12.1
Here’s the amount of RAM available in 2020 flagship iPhones:
- iPhone 12 mini. 4GB
- iPhone 12. 4GB
- iPhone 12 Pro. 6GB
- iPhone 12 Pro Max. 6GB
Which iPhone lasts longer: iPhone 11 and iPhone 12 battery comparison
If you remember, the two younger models of the iPhone 12 have exactly the same amount of RAM as last year’s iPhone 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max. But the top-end devices received two additional gigabytes, which can already be considered a decent indicator for 2020. Of course, up to 12 and even more so 16 GB, which Samsung equips its flagship smartphones, Apple is still far away, but given that today even the top-end iPad Pro versions do not have more, this will obviously be enough for the vast majority of tasks.
IPhone 12 specifications
The main feature of the “firmware” was an advanced camera, LiDAR and a large screen diagonal in the iPhone 11 Pro Max.
How much RAM does the iPhone 11 have?
Despite the fact that Apple has increased the amount of RAM in the top iPhone 12 models, it is difficult to say exactly how this will affect their performance and functionality. After all, in all fairness, even the iPhone 7, which has 2 GB of RAM, runs on iOS 14 just excellently, surpassing the performance indicators of itself on iOS 13. What is just the work in the “Camera” application, in which the smartphone of 2016 release began to do burst photos up to 90% faster than before, instantly responding to shutter button presses.
In addition to the RAM, Apple has made significant improvements to the rest of the iPhone 12. The most important upgrade is the combination of the A14 Bionic processor, the first commercial chip made using 5nm process technology, and a 5G-compatible modem. The processor has 11.8 billion transistors, thanks to which it almost instantly performs any task. And support for fifth-generation networks gives the smartphone download speeds of up to 4 Gbps when working on Verizon networks.
How much RAM is in the new iPhone 12
IPhones have always had less RAM than the vast majority of competing smartphones. Of course, this could not but become a subject for ridicule on the part of Android users, who lull themselves with the thought that an additional couple of gigabytes makes their consumer goods for 20 thousand rubles better than the top iPhone for 120. But since explaining the minimum amount of RAM with a high level of optimization is endless it was impossible, in Cupertino over time they began to be a little more loyal to the increase in RAM, and by 2020 they gave birth to a serious upgrade.
Two iPhone 12 models get 2 additional GB of RAM
The iPhone 12 mini, iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max, which Apple unveiled on October 13, received different amounts of RAM. Despite the fact that the company itself avoids talking about this indicator at presentations, and in general it never mentions it, the developers managed to find the information they were interested in in the Xcode 12.1 development environment.
