The next-generation iPhone 15 series will feature RAM improvements, according to the New report From the Taiwanese research firm TrendForce.
The report claims that Apple will “increase the RAM capacity and specifications” of the iPhone 15 models. Depending on this wording, there could be improvements to both RAM amounts and speeds across the iPhone 15 series, but no specific details are provided.
TrendForce previously said that the iPhone 15 Pro models are likely to come with 8GB of RAM, compared to 6GB for the iPhone 14 Pro models. The standard iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus will likely still have 6GB of RAM, but those models will likely be upgraded to faster LPDDR5 RAM, like last year’s iPhone 14 Pro models.
The increased RAM can benefit multitasking on the iPhone by allowing more apps to open in the background simultaneously. Along with the rumored A17 Bionic chip for the iPhone 15 Pro models, the RAM improvements will boost overall performance.
If the iPhone 15 Pro comes with up to 8GB of RAM, this will be the first increase since the iPhone 12 Pro with 6GB of RAM.
Apple is expected to announce the iPhone 15 series at a press event in September as usual. For more details on the devices, read our iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Pro reports linked below, which are regularly updated with the latest rumors.
