Rumor has it, RAM improvements are on their way to the iPhone 15 range that’s supposed to come out this year. While the Pro models are expected to ship with higher RAM, the non-Pro models could grab upgraded, faster RAM but retain the same capacity.
Taiwanese research firm TrendForce has said in a report that Apple will “bump up the capacity and specifications” of RAM for iPhone 15. However, this report does not mention any specific details regarding the same.
But as MacRumors points out, TrendForce itself had previously published that the iPhone 15 Pro models will ship with 8GB of RAM instead of the 6GB module that’s present on the iPhone 14 Pro models.
As for the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus, their RAM capacity apparently won’t see an upgrade but quality will. So you can expect 6GB of faster LPDDR5 RAM to form part of their offerings.
The advancement in RAM capacity and quality will allow the devices to dole out better multitasking capabilities. This, combined with the rumored A17 Bionic chip will do wonders for the performance of the new iPhones.
The iPhone 15 models are widely believed to be the first in the series to feature USB Type-C ports. This decision was taken by Apple to comply with a diktat by the European Union that mandates the use of the next-gen port on all smartphones by 2024.
However, a recent report has also told us that Apple could end up limiting the functionality of this port. A custom integrated circuit (IC) interface could lead to lowered charging speeds on cables that are not sold or certified by the company.
All will be clear sometime around September as that’s when Apple is expected to launch its new iPhone 15 range. Stay tuned for more leaks till then.
