Apple's upcoming smartphones are still equipped with the same amount of memory that was already built into the respective iPhone 12 predecessors. In comparison with its Android competitors, Apple is still lagging behind when it comes to how much RAM it puts into its flagship devices.

Apple does not make a big deal about memory, which is why such technical specifications were omitted from yesterday's California Streaming event that saw the launch of not only the iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 Pro, but also the Apple Watch Series 7, the new iPad mini 6 and a refreshed 10.2-inch iPad for 2021. Thankfully, MacRumors has now analyzed some Xcode strings and shed light on how much RAM Apple's new iPhone 13 models will have.

According to the report, the Apple iPhone 13 and the smaller iPhone 13 mini will remain at the same 4GB of RAM that were already featured in the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 mini. The iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max on the other hand will also stagnate at 6GB of memory. It's another hint that the technical improvements for this year's iPhones are rather minor or even non-existent in some regards.

In comparison to Android flagships, Apple is far behind its competition when it comes to memory. Phones like the Asus ROG Phone 5 (from US$1968 on Amazon) feature up to 18GB of RAM, but due to its better optimized mobile operating system iOS, Apple can get away with utilizing much less memory while still achieving impressive performance with its industry leading Apple A15 Bionic SoCs. It remains to be seen if future iPhones like the rumored iPhone 14 will receive more RAM than the stagnant iPhone 13 models.

My fascination for technology goes back a long way to the Pentium II era. Modding, overclocking and treasuring computer hardware has since become an integral part of my life. As a student, I further developed a keen interest in mobile technologies that can make the stressful college life so much easier. After I fell in love with the creation of digital content while working in a marketing position, I now scour the web to bring you the most exciting topics in the world of tech. Outside the office, I’m particularly passionate about motorsports and mountain biking.
