Apple isn’t one to tout its internal specifications of devices beyond the processor being used, or the camera. As expected, for the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus, the amount of RAM or the battery capacity are not even listed on the product’s official page. As a result, users are left with the task of figuring out other specifications such as RAM, by running benchmark tests on devices. So after the iPhone 7 launch, many were left wondering exactly how much RAM the new phones come with. A recent listing on Geekbench seems to have the answer. The listing shows a device called the iPhone 9,4 running iOS 10.0.1 and featuring 3GB of RAM. Speculations suggest that this is the iPhone 7 Plus. The phone’s listing on Chinese certification website, TENAA, also lists it with 3GB of RAM. The standard iPhone 7 seems to stick with 2GB of RAM.
Of course, the amount of RAM on an iPhone cannot be compared to the RAM offered on Android devices, which now offer up to 6GB of memory. Apple’s iOS is better optimised to make the most of available resources, and have performed well with lesser amounts of RAM. However, it would still be nice for Apple to list down all the specifications of their phone, so buyers know exactly what they are purchasing.
