    Apple development tool Xcode seemingly confirms the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus each have 2GB of RAM, while the iPad Pro has 4GB of RAM, as discovered by iOS developer Hamza Sood.

    The iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus have long been rumored to have 2GB of RAM. Meanwhile, Adobe issued a Creative Cloud press release earlier this week that stated the iPad Pro had 4GB of RAM, but removed the mention just hours later.

    As usual, Apple itself did not mention how much RAM the iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus or iPad Pro have during its "Hey Siri" media event, nor does it include RAM on the tech spec pages for any of the devices.

    guess that has me sold, trading in the 6 for a 6s (may go 6s + this year to see if I like the size)

    Great news for the iPad Pro...

    Now, if it could only have better cameras it would be a complete product...

    And, I almost forgot at least 256 GB Storage

    The iPad Pro is just one more step towards iOS replacing Mac OS X.

    Yuck, 1 GB of RAM is plenty. Hopefully they go back to 1 GB next year.

    Why is Apple so secretive about RAM? It makes no sense to me. Everyone finds out anyway; they may as well just list it in the specs.

    Keep in mind, before the "wowz it took soon long" wave comes in, this 2GB of RAM is going outperform many/most of the 3GB+ devices out there. The amount of work they've done in memory compression (acquiring firms like anobit) and tuning the OS to the hardware is just staggering.

    Damn, that might convince me to get it. 4GB with A9X means it would be plenty for me for the next two years, therefore it would be the same as buying iPad Air 3 and iPad 4 with the identical price, with the bonus of a bigger screen and a stylus.

    think I'm going from 6 to 6s + and thought I was going to have to make an adjustment, I remember going from the 5s to the 6, it was awesome!

    I would like to follow your steps, but I'm kinda broke this year. I can only get the iPad Pro.

    They don't want you to think of the iPhone as a computer, which is why they avoided talking about specs in detail in the past.

    Because Spec junkies buy exclusively on it. As apple is focused on consumers first and foremost, RAM is something only "the nerds" find themselves concerned about, myself included.
