As reported by 9to5Mac, Apple is packing its new iPhone 12 models with different levels of RAM depending on the phone you choose. It will be the first time, however, that an iPhone features 6GB of RAM.
According to the Xcode 12.1 beta, the iPhone 12 mini and iPhone 12 will feature 4GB of RAM.
The iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max, however, will get a bump to 6GB of RAM each. This is a 2GB increase from last year's Pro models.
There are also early Geekbench scores available for the iPhone 12 Pro. According to the results, the iPhone 12 Pro scored a single-core score of 1590 and a 3120 in multi-core testing. While these show an improvement with single-core performance when compared with the iPhone 11 Pro, this early test showed a little hit in multi-core performance.
The iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro will both be available for preorder starting at 5:00 AM Pacific Time on Friday, October 16. Preorders for the iPhone 12 mini and iPhone 12 Pro Max won't be until November 6.
