According to analyst Jeff Pu, the upcoming vanilla iPhones, the iPhone 16 and iPhone 16 Plus, may come with 8GB of RAM as standard.
New information regarding the upcoming iPhone 16 variants is beginning to emerge now that 2024 has arrived and the iPhone 15 series has been out for four months.
As reported by MacRumors, analyst Jeff Pu has projected that the upcoming vanilla iPhones, the iPhone 16 and iPhone 16 Plus, may come standard with 8GB of RAM, up from the 6GB of RAM that the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus come with.
In a research paper published by the financial firm Haitong International Securities, Pu restated this. According to him, 8GB of RAM will be included in all iPhone models in the iPhone 16 series for better multitasking and performance. It should be mentioned that the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus have less RAM than the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max, which have 8GB RAM already.
Apple has a history of selecting various RAM for different iPhone models. For example, the iPhone XR came with 3GB RAM while the iPhone XS had 4GB RAM. The iPhone 12 had 4GB RAM but the iPhone 12 Pro had 6GB RAM. Other models have also been released that had different RAM configurations. This means that compared to the present iPhone 15 models, the specifications of the iPhone 16 normal versions and the iPhone 16 Pro may be more comparable.
Pu also thinks that the Wi-Fi 6E technology will be supported by the iPhone 16 models, allowing them to utilize 6GHz bands for better speeds. This feature is only compatible with the most expensive iPhone 15 Pro models right now.
Remember that before the phones are put into mass production, Apple can change its plans, so this is all speculation for the time being. So, until the new iPhones are out in September, everything should be taken with a grain of salt.
