Apple’s ‘iPhone 4S’ Has 512MB RAM

During iPhone 4S launch event Apple’s marketing chief Phil Schiller unveiled the fifth-gen iPhone and said, “don’t be deceived because inside it’s all new.” The new iPhone 4S features Apple designed dual-core A5 chip with twice the performance and up-to 7 times faster graphics when compared with iPhone 4.

However, just like previous launches the tech specs didn’t include how much RAM the device includes. Apple has always believed in marketing the “experience” rather than the technical specifications of the device. The company has never competed with other smartphones in terms of specifications like megapixels or processor speeds.

The overall emphasis is on aspects like how to take a better picture or make the experience even better. The tight integration between the hardware and software allows Apple to deliver high performance and the best user experience.

Just after the announcement of iPhone 4S the rumor mill began speculating if the new device supports 1GB of RAM. Many media outlets began publishing specifications of iPhone 4S with higher RAM. However, it was first confirmed by Infinity Blade developer that the fifth-gen iPhone actually has 512MB RAM, same as iPad 2.

I’m still shocked that, with the iPhone 4S, I’m literally running around with a 1080p video camera in my pocket, with an eight megapixel camera, 64GB of hard drive space and an A5 chip with 512MB of memory. This is a really powerful computer, right?

And more recently AppVV posted a video of iPhone 4S and also mentioned that the new iPhone has 512MB RAM. Apple has never mentioned RAM as a part of the tech specs of any iOS device. It’s often only confirmed when a tear down is posted by repair outlets.

We recently reported that Apple has already recorded 1,000,000 pre-orders for iPhone 4S within the first 24 hours and that makes it the most successful launch for the Cupertino, California-based company.

    The interesting thing about these devices is they really don’t need 1GB of RAM. It’s pretty senseless to add additional expense to a device just because some of the pundits think that “dammit, it’s an upgrade, why not have 1gb of ram in it”. 

    The iPad 2 has a larger screen space and it’s doing fine with 512mb of Ram. So why would something that is so much smaller display wise need more ram? It wouldn’t and the specs bear out that graphic performance is 7 times that of the current iPhone 4. What’s the matter folks, not fast enough for that porn you’re surfing? OY!

    Everytime someone out there other than Apple specs out an Apple product, I laugh because I know that Apple will not deliver the fantasy. They will deliver the reality of a device that does exactly what we need it to do and do so at an exceptional rate speed.

    By the looks of Infinity Blade and how it was showing at the demo, the graphics engine and processing engine can more than handle what any developer will throw at it for some time to come.

    Speculation is fun, it’s when you cloud the reality and then create the mass disappointment for no reason that your articles lose credibility, and quickly.
