Does the iPhone 4S only have 512MB of RAM?
Mac Rumors reports that an Infinity Blade developer has stated that the iPhone 4S only has 512MB of RAM – the same as the iPhone 4 and iPad 2. The claim is further backed up by AppVV who has an iPhone 4S in its possession already.
If true then we expect spec-obsessed gadgeteers will be more than a little disappointed, given that competition like HTC’s Sensation XE and EVO 3D have 768MB and 1GB RAM respectively.
Although specs aren’t everything (we’ve seen the iPhone 4 running smoother than devices with double the RAM), we would expect Siri to eat up a large chunk of memory when in use.
This news also raises questions regarding Siri’s future on the iPad 2 – after all, if that has the same A5 processor and 512MB RAM as the iPhone 4S then doesn’t it deserve to get in on some sweet Siri action?
Looks like we’ll have to wait until launch day to find out more details, so stay tuned and carry on counting down the days until you and your shiny new iPhone are united.
