iPhone 12 has 4GB RAM, 12 Pro has 6GB

The news: iPhone 12 Pro has significantly more RAM this year than last year, as spotted by MacRumors (70% accurate).

  • A new Xcode beta has revealed RAM on iPhone 12 Pro now sits at 6GB, and is corroborated by a new Geekbench result
  • Like iPhone 11, RAM on iPhone 12 and 12 mini remains at 4GB

Our take: This probably explains why some features (ex. Dolby Vision 4k60p) have been restricted to the higher-end Pro iPhones this year. Plus, it’s a nice benefit for those willing to spend a bit more on their mobile.
