Apple iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max tipped to land with RAM upgrades
Apple's iPhone 14 series may still be over six months away from launch but leaks on the basic specs of the phones have slowly surfaced. A few weeks ago, word on the grapevine claimed that the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max would ship with a minimum of 256 GB of storage, but it appears that may not be the only upgrade the phones get over their predecessors.
According to what appears to be a Korean-based supply chain insider source, the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max are both expected to offer 8 GB of RAM, a small boost on the iPhone 13 Pro models' 6 GB of RAM. This makes sense, as earlier reports claimed that the regular iPhone 14 models would see a similar upgrade from 4 GB to 6 GB of RAM. While it'd be logical for the Pro models to have more memory, it's important to point out that the iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, and iPhone 11 Pro Max all had 4 GB of RAM.
Either way, the move up to 8 GB of RAM would see Apple's range-topping models play on a level field with rivals from the Android side of the fence, with all major Android flagship phones starting at 8 GB of RAM—and going even as high as 16 GB. If all of these rumors are to be believed, the iPhone 14 Pro models will ship with 8 GB of RAM and 256 GB of storage as standard. That's not the norm even on Android flagships, so it'll be interesting to see if Apple actually equips the phones as such.
