Xcode Confirms All 2019 iPhones Have 4GB RAM And Apple Watch S5 Chip Same As S4 [Updated]
There was mixed information about RAM in the new 2019 iPhone models, which has caused confusion over the past week.
New iPhones’ SKUs continually listed 4GB of RAM in all iPhone 11, 11 Pro, and 11 Pro Max devices, but a rumor from a certification database suggested there was 6GB of RAM in them. âIPhone 11â Pro and Pro Max.
This has led to speculation that some high-end capacities might have had 6GB of RAM, but this is now clear, both through regulatory filings in China and information. discovered this morning by Steve Troughton-Smith in Xcode, that each âiPhone 11â, 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max model has 4 GB of RAM.
Xcode also confirms that no iPhone 11 or 11 Pro / Max model has 6 GB of RAM. All models have 4GB RAM – Steve Troughton-Smith (@stroughtonsmith) September 18, 2019
For the âiPhone 11â Pro and Pro Max, this is the same as the amount of RAM available in the previous generation iPhoneâ XS and XS Max, and for the âiPhone 11â, it is 1 GB more than the 3 GB of RAM in the previous generation. the âiPhoneâ XR.
Also of note, Troughton-Smith confirmed that the S5 processor in the Apple Watch Series 5 is identical to the S4 processor in the Apple Watch Series 4, with no performance improvement.
According to Xcode, the Apple Watch Series 5 has the same generation of CPU / GPU as the Apple Watch Series 4; I guess the only changes are a gyroscope and 32gb of NAND? The upside of this is that we won’t have to worry about watchOS running slower on the Series 4 than on a brand new model – Steve Troughton-Smith (@stroughtonsmith) September 18, 2019
This is not a surprise as Apple did not mention any changes to the chip during its September 10 event and there is no mention of an increase in speed or performance in Apple’s marketing materials. Watch, but it helps to have confirmation.
Internally the Apple Watch Series 5 uses an updated display that allows for always-on functionality, there is a new compass function and 32GB storage, but otherwise the Apple Watch Series 5 appears to use the same components. internal than Series 4.
Troughton-Smith’s Xcode digs also uncovered new information about the updated 10.2-inch seventh-generation iPad. It is equipped with 3 GB of RAM, against 2 GB in the previous generation version.
Apple’s new âiPhoneâ and Apple Watch models are expected to officially launch on Friday, September 20, and teardowns will soon reveal even more information about the new devices. The new seventh-generation iPad will be available on September 30.
Update: Troughton-Smith now says he’s hearing conflicting information about iPhones RAM and is going to dig deeper into the firmware issue.
I’m hearing conflicting things about this, so I’ll revise my wording until I can take a closer look at the firmwares this week: there’s 4GB of system RAM, accessible by iOS and apps, in both. new iPhones. For the user it’s 4 GB of RAM – Steve Troughton-Smith (@stroughtonsmith) September 19, 2019
