We all have noticed over years that whenever Apple announces a new iPhone, it rarely makes any reference regarding the amount of RAM included inside the iPhone. And the same happened in case of the iPhone 6s; the amount of RAM was not shared. Even the official iPhone 6s specifications page on the Apple website did not share any details regarding the RAM.

However, we always have hope in the form of iOS developers, who are struggling day and night to uncover the hidden mysteries in iOS devices, may it be the RAM, processor, or vulnerabilities in iOS. And keeping up to that spirit, a popular iOS developer named Hamza Sood has disclosed today the amount of RAM used in the new iPhones. Hamza has confirmed that the new iPhones have got 2GB of RAM under their hood. So even the bigger iPhone 6s Plus carries 2 GB of RAM. Apart from this, the developer also released a word on the iPad Pro saying that it carries 4 GB of RAM.

But how did the developer get to know how much RAM do the new iPhones and the new iPad have got inside them? Well, he has actually run a very simple test in Xcode for confirming the amount of RAM and has posted the same on Twitter. In the following tweet, he said that:

The image asset is chosen based on the memoryClass key in the simdevicetype’s capabilities.plist. 0 = < 1 GB, 1 = 1GB, 2 = 2GB, 3 = 4GB.

We had expected the new iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus to come with no less than 2 GB of RAM, so the developer’s tweets about the same are not surprising at all. Subscribe to our newsletter and follow us on Facebook and Twitter; updates will be sent direct to your inbox.
