There has been a little confusion over the iPhone 4S RAM, which is understandable considering the specs page on Apple’s website doesn’t list this detail. While the iPad 2 has 512MB of memory, it was expected the iPhone 4S would double that, although this does not seem to be the case.
One report suggests that the iPhone 4S RAM is in fact 512MB as well, which also leads to the question about Siri for the iPad 2, and why not? We’ve had no official response from Apple, although the 512MB rumors come thanks to an interview with the creative director from Chair Entertainment. When he stated that he was shocked what the iPhone 4S gives users via their pocket, and specifically said “an A5 chip with 512MB of memory”. You can read the full interview here.
While we know the memory may not be up to what some people expected, and the design could have done with a change, there are still some key improvements. These include a dual-core A5 chip, a camera with f/2.4 aperture and 8 megapixels, 1080p video recording, Bluetooth 4.0 and world phone capability, and the one feature to change everything, which is Siri.
Did you expect more RAM to be installed in the iPhone 4S?
