    i see a bunch of articles saying how tear downs reveal the iPhone 8 has 2GB of RAM. I haven’t seen anything about confirming the 8 Plus having 3GB of RAM. Has this been actually confirmed aside from rumors? Because thats a big deal to me and could be the deciding factor on whether I upgrade from my 6S plus

    Let's think this through.

    1) The 7 Plus has 3GB of RAM. The 8 Plus is marketed as faster and more powerful (which is not just marketing, it's true)
    2) If a phone is faster and more powerful than its predecessor that has 3GB of RAM, do you think the new phone will come with less RAM?

    Given that the 7+ had 3GB, would the 8+ have less?

    why not just use somethig like Lirum Info Lite to see your Ram status, no need to tear it down

    after all the false claims that apple has made recently, i don't blame you for asking if a specification that's listed on their own website has been verified. i really don't blame you.

    I must have missed those false claims Apple put out; could you tell me which ones were put out? I like to be inside the loop.

    Apple doesn't release numbers when it comes to ram for iPhones, so I'm not sure how your statement would correlate to any false claims with this specific Thread. They don't make claims regarding ram, which is usually verified later on.

    What a surprise, more false claims from you today. So what false claims did Apple make? Are you just looking to pick fights with people today? This is the third thread that you have "thrown down" in that I have seen.

    I believe you are refering to iOS 11
    "iOS 11 sets a new standard for what is already the world’s most advanced mobile operating system. It makes iPhone better than before. It makes iPad more capable than ever."
    https://www.apple.com/ios/ios-11/
    maybe not

    https://9to5mac.com/2017/09/25/ios-11-battery-life-problems/

    and glass screen and back

    "According to Apple, the glass used for its new iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 devices is the most durable glass ever used in a smartphone"

    Maybe not
