Xcode reveals new iPhones have 2GB RAM, iPad Pro gets 4GB

When it launched the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus last year, Apple ignored the cries of those desperately calling for a bigger battery and more RAM. With its new iPhone 6s and 6s Plus, launched last week, Apple actually made the batteries even smaller (!) - but as 9to5Mac reports, both handsets have finally got a boost in RAM.

Developer Hamza Sood sifted through the Xcode 7 GM asset catalogs to uncover details of how much RAM is inside the new iPhones, as well as the new 12.9-inch iPad Pro. He discovered that the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus each has 2GB of RAM - up from just 1GB in their predecessors - while the giant iPad has 4GB.

As we noted in our Specs Appeal showdown between the iPad Pro and Microsoft's Surface Pro 3 last week, Adobe was first to reveal that the new iPad has 4GB of RAM, but now Apple's own code has confirmed this to be the case.
