9.7-inch iPad Pro and iPhone SE pack 2GB of RAM [Update]

It looks like the new iPhone SE and 9.7-inch iPad Pro both pack 2GB of memory. That's not something Apple normally divulges in its product announcements — meaning those interested usually have to wait for benchmarks for stats and tear-downs for chip analysis.

We've got the former from several sources now, including our own senior editor, Daniel Bader, editor-in-chief, Rene Ritchie, as well as Matthew Panzarino from Twitter, who all have both devices in hand.

For comparison, the 12.9-inch iPad Pro packs double the RAM of the 9.7-inch version, coming in at 4GB. Popular benchmarking app Geekbench also shows the CPU is running at a slightly lower clock speed of 2.16GHz compared to its 12.9-inch sibling's 2.24GHz:

We have also confirmed that the iPhone SE's processor is clocked at 1.85GHz, which matches the A9 processor in the iPhone 6s. Combined with matching RAM totals, it appears that the iPhone SE's internals are in fact identical to the iPhone 6s.

What do you think of these memory specs? What you expected?
