That or still only 3 GB ?
My guess is that they’ll hold at 3 GB this year, even for the expected larger model. I’d say we can expect the usual CPU bump and some other minor tweaks, but the RAM will likely stay the same.
Kuo confirmed it would be 4GB for the 6.5” model. 4GB for the 5.8”. And 3GB for 6.1”.
Apple doesn't consider the amount of RAM soldered in an iPhone anything worth mentioning. It's never a talking point during marketing presentations. Oh, they'll talk about core count and energy efficiency of the CPU and gush over camera improvements, but never peep about RAM. We only eventually find out by reading the specs.
Apple has been historically stingy on RAM and storage. So, I wouldn't hold my breath waiting for a 4GB model right away.
That's not completely true. The S in 3GS was there because they said the extra ram made it fast so the S is for speed.
I think it’s likely we’ll see 4gb on the premium models...
My prediction is the 5.8 will remain at 3 GB and the 6.5 X will have 4 GB.
That's incorrect. In the history of iPhone launches, Apple has never disclosed the clock speed nor the RAM. Apple has certainly never disclosed that 3GS has extra memory.
Why do you care?
What’s wrong with asking? It’s no different if somebody asks about other specific features for an unreleased iPhone or what are others thoughts might be if Apple will include XYZ in an iPhone. It’s all discussion related.
4gb would give peace of mind for more future proofing.
The OP has not asked about what Apple publicly advertises. This discussion focussed on wether or not the next device will have more RAM.
Given the current RAM market they will not. It's already the most expensive internal in the phone that they have to actually buy from other companies.
4GB for sure
it now needs it when you compare it to the comp which has 6GB of ram
Agreed, 4GB memory also makes sense given Apple's lineup in September.
The 6.1" iPhone is a mainstream model with Face ID. That model is expected to have 3GB memory, which makes sense because 2GB would be too low. The iPhone SE, 6s, 7, and 8 all have 2GB and I doubt 2GB is sufficient for 2018 requirements. If the 6.1" has 3GB, the 5.8" and 6.5" OLED models can't possibly have 3GB.
Yes, I’m 100% positive it will. They typically upgrade the RAM every two to three years and we’ve had 2GB since the 6S (apart from 3GB on the Plus models since the 7), so they will most likely bump it up to 4GB with the new X’s.
Can you explain why it ‘now needs it’? Are you referring to all three models needing 4 GB or just the iPhone 6.5 X Plus?
Apps refresh like crazy on only 3GB of ram. YouTube videos shows it’s lacking behind in this area
