Apple is reportedly bumping up the RAM in its next-gen iPhones from the current 4GB to a more healthy 6GB, as per reports originating from Macrumors. Citing a Barclays analyst, the iPhone 12 is also said to feature 5G, a technology that would become more mainstream as more and more flagship manufacturers adopt it.
While 6GB of RAM has become table stakes in the very spec hungry Android world, the iPhone remains famous for doing more with less.
The iPhone 12 is also expected to ship with iOS 14, an update that will be partially focused on stability much like iOS 12. While Apple still intends to make it as feature-packed as the current iOS 13 release, some features may slip to iOS 15 should they affect system stability.
Aside from the iPhone 12, Barclays analysts also shared information of the iPhone SE2. This handset is expected to be introduced around March, featuring the shell of the 4.7-inch iPhone 8 but with the newer A13 chip and 3GB of RAM.
