Are there any idea's how much ram the 5s has?
The consensus (but it's just a guess) that I've read is 2GB.
We won't know for sure until someone does a tear down.
Or runs a bench marking app on it.....
Geekbench, for instance, shows the amount of RAM.
"Twice as much"
iPhone 5: Dual-core 1.3GHz A6, 1GB LPDDR2 RAM
iPhone 5s: Dual-core 1.3GHz A7, 1GB LPDDR3 RAM
Looks like 1 GB (AT). Pathetic and clear move to force people in the future to buy the iphone 6.
LOL the majority of buyers don't care about ram, hell most don't even know what ram is.
What exactly isn't working fast enough on a 5 or 5s that you need more RAM?
If you didn't know the number would you complain?
It seems like I can only have one app open at a time without the other apps quitting on my 4S and disconnecting me. I would have liked more...
It's 1 GB RAM, but it's different type. I assume that it's faster.
Your 4S has 512 of ram.
So the 5S would definitely handle that part better.
I would like to see more ram too cause that's always good to have extra.
But maybe next year.
You all know extra RAM takes more battery power right?
So the 5s has 1GB of RAM? Apple is making it clear that the iPhone 5s is a huge improvement in performance without needing more RAM to get there. Not to mention the improvements in battery life they've made in iOS 7. Only one thing has changed for the RAM in the 5s: its 1GB LPDDR3 vs. 1GB LPDDR2 found in the iPhone 5/5c.
They do know what happens when you run out....
RAM helps with a lot of things. It would be extremely nice if my phone could cache everything instead of refreshing the page while browsing for example (iphone 4 and android phone do this).
At a time where every high end phone ships with 2 GB and apple's 5s ships with 1 GB and WILL FOR THE NEXT YEAR it would certainty be nice to have 2 GB.
And yet it still absolutely blows the doors off of those other high end phones even with only half the amount of RAM...
Very minimal amount.
Its not like it would drain your battery because it has a bigger ram module installed.
You will use more battery watching a video than having more memory idling.
Agreed. Most just care that it runs smoothly.
My iPhone even with 1GB ram handles things quite well. My other android (S4) lags when I have multiple apps open and it has 2GB. But I have also heard how android is "true" multitasking and iPhone isn't. Correct me if I'm wrong.
1GB is a joke on the iphonre 5s
If you run spotify and perfect browser at the same time with a few tabs open the phone will run out of ram and start to lock up.
If you run infinity blade 2, safari and a few other apps the phone will run out of ram and start to lock up.
did they do a tear down?
5s: 1GB LPDDR3
5/5c: 1GB LPDDR2
Surprised nobody else mentioned the move to DDR3?
Would like 2gb but if Apple has made sure it runs smooth then I'm good...
