    Apple's new iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max both come with 6GB of RAM - 2GB more than the previous generation iPhone XS series - while the iPhone 11 features 4GB, up from 3GB in the iPhone XR, according to new details leaked today.

    The specs come from reliable mobile leaker Steve Hommersteffer (@OnLeaks), whose tweet today also claims to reveal the battery capacities for Apple's latest iPhone lineup, as follows.

    The iPhone 11 Pro is said to come with a 3,190mAh capacity battery, compared to the 2,658mAh one in the iPhone XS, while the iPhone 11 Pro Max boasts 3,500mAh (the iPhone XS Max had 3,174mAh). The base iPhone 11 is said to include a 3,110 mAh battery, up from the 2,942mAh in the iPhone XR.


    However, the above RAM specs contradict some recent Geekbench results. One that appeared last night (shared by MacRumors forum member EugW) is for an alleged iPhone 11 Pro showing a device with 4GB of RAM - with an A13 processor benchmarking around 10-15 percent faster than the A12 processor in the iPhone XS series. The other, reported last week, is allegedly for a base iPhone 11, also with 4GB.

    Hemmerstoffer's specs are sourced from a Chinese certification platform, so they aren't officially confirmed. But then Geekbench scores can also be faked, so it's best to take these sources with a pinch of salt until something more definitive comes along.

    If the iPhone 11 series does indeed feature 4GB RAM across the board, then it could be that Apple's proprietary off-chip enhancements also bring greater working memory optimizations, but that's something we can't know for sure based on raw CPU scores.

    Apple is taking online pre-orders for the all-new iPhone 11 series models from Friday, September 13 and will start shipping the devices the following Friday, September 20.

    It's Apple. If in doubt, just assume the lower value.

    It used to be called British racing green. Thanks, Brexit.

    I wonder if iOS will arbitrarily require 3Gb RAM?

    Otherwise how else will Apple justify forcing me to downgrade from my 6s+ to one of the new phones without headphone jack and with worse screen while giving them a thousand dollars?

    Nobody is forcing you to do anything. Stop being so dramatic.
    If you want a new phone buy one if you don’t then don’t.
    Comeback when Tim Apple has a gun to your head.

    The color existed before Lotus, MG and Sunbeam started using it.

    Later on Porsche used it on a few 911s


    I’m glad Apple revived it, finally I’ll be able to get TShirts in that color again.

    Most likely less RAM for 64GB capacity phones.
    Think different, be greedy. Apple.

    I’m outraged at this speculation.

    How will I ever get through this day while slogging through the puddle of tears raining down from the black cloud of shattered dreams Apple has cast over my head? Oh, the humanity. I’m tired of being in this state run iPrison®️.

    [Just wanted to get that out of the way]

    I really, really want that green but I’m curious to know if it’s going to have that sticky/rubbery feel to it like the gold one does? Some people say it’s the PVD coating but the black models also have this and all the reports of stickiness were exclusive to the gold models.

    I guess 6GB of RAM may help while shooting video with the 3 lens at the same time, so they might put 4GB on the 11 and 6 on the Pro

    Wait a second.
    You want Apple to give you more More MORE.
    If they don’t, they’re greedy?

    How about MacRumors contacting Apple on our behalf to verify the actual specs and posting it back here for its members? This would avoid the angst and mudslinging amongst the members here.

    I would rather see 128GB as the base storage than the RAM increase.

    I want them to be fair and don’t even sell a “Pro” phone with 64GB of capacity. In any case all “Pro’s” should come with the same RAM.

    The material and coating are the same, so yes. It helps with the grip though, doesn't it?
