iPhone 7 Plus has one new feature Apple forgot to mention

by

iPhone 7 Plus 3

It appears that the iPhone 7 Plus has 3GB of RAM, more than any other iPhone released to date.

Just like previous years, Apple chose not to wax lyrical on the amount of memory installed in its new iPhones. But it seems that the iPhone 7 Plus may have been quietly upgraded to 3GB of RAM, trumping the 2GB of RAM that appeared in last year’s iPhone 6S Plus.

Why do we think this? Firstly, a Geekbench test of the iPhone 7 Plus has surfaced, which lists the iPhone 7 Plus as having ‘2998MB’ of memory – that’s 3GB(-ish). What’s more, a listing on TENAA also puts the iPhone 7 Plus down as having 3GB of RAM. TENAA is China’s electronics certification board, and is the local equivalent of America’s FCC.

It’s worth noting that while we’re not entirely sure yet, the iPhone 7 probably won’t share the 3GB RAM upgrade. Apple’s ‘Plus’ models typically feature a higher memory count to help justify the leap in retail pricing.

Apple is now finally treading into Android territory with its RAM. Most Android flagships now ship with anywhere from 3GB to 6GB of RAM, whereas Apple has historically tended towards more conservative amounts. However, don’t forget that direct comparisons shouldn’t be made between the two platforms. Because Apple only produces a single phone running a single OS with a custom-built processor, the company can majorly optimise its systems, which means the iPhone can run smoothly even with comparatively lower RAM than an Android equivalent.

The iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus were announced on Wednesday, and are now available to pre-order in the UK and elsewhere.

So what? One Plus has double that, 6gb. This is not a feature, this should be standard.

why is that a 'feature'?
It is a spec point. Not all spec points are features.
