iPhone RAM list Here how much memory every iPhone model has

Curious how much RAM Apple has put in its iPhones over the years or how much memory your current iPhone has? While the company doesn’t publicly share the information, memory details surface in teardowns and from other sources like Apple’s supply chain. Read along for a look at the complete iPhone RAM list for how much memory comes with every iPhone model.



Apple doesn’t publish or put any focus on iPhone RAM for a number of reasons. One of the biggest is that iPhone performance outpaces the competition like Android phones with less RAM. Apple is able to do that as it makes both the hardware and software and precisely fine-tunes its devices to perform as efficiently and powerfully as possible.



So in the big picture, Apple focuses on what its iPhones can do rather than the specs powering them.



One example was in 2019 when the iPhone 11 Pro Max with 4GB RAM beat out the Samsung Galaxy Note 10+ which has 12GB RAM in a speed test. The tight integration between iPhone hardware and iOS made up more than an 8 GB memory difference. The same is usually true for iPad and Mac vs Android tablets and PCs too.



Before you look, can you guess how much RAM the original iPhone had? 😁



Ok, let’s dig into the full iPhone RAM list…



Don’t think I ever once thought I need more RAM in my iPhone. … However in a Mac, I’m actually angry at Apple for continuing to cheat its customers by making non upgradable computer models with a paltry 8GB RAM (now shared with the GPU) and HD storage less than 512GB. Completely inadequate (tests prove it) and a waste of the otherwise excellent hardware in the rest of the system. Doubling base models to 16GB literally would cost Apple a few dollars and I believe spur sales.
