It looks like, along with another significant upgrade to the A-series processor, Apple has decide to pack in more RAM for some iPhone 12 models, too.
MacRumors was able to get a peek at plist files in the latest Xcode 12.1 beta, which revealed to the publication the RAM specs for the iPhone 12 lineup. Unsurprisingly it’s the Pro models that offer more RAM under the hood, with the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 mini both sticking with the amount of RAM Apple used last year in the iPhone 11 lineup.
These plist files have been accurate in the past, so there’s no reason to think they wouldn’t be now. And, according to the information at hand, the iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max are equipped with 6GB of RAM. Meanwhile, the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 mini both boast 4GB of RAM.
And if that’s not enough, as noted in the original report a recent Geekbench result for the iPhone 12 Pro corroborates the 6GB of RAM discovered in the plist.
As mentioned above, the iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro both had 4GB of RAM.
The inclusion of the A14 Bionic and the uptick in RAM should equate to an even more powerful handset. Which makes sense, considering all of the things the Pro models can do, like recording and editing in Dolby Vision HDR right on the handsets.
