Xcode Confirms 2GB of RAM for iPhone 6s, 4G of RAM for iPad Pro

Whenever a new iPhone is announced, Apple rarely — if at all — makes reference to how much RAM is under the hood. The iPhone 6s tech specs page also did not provide any details about the RAM.

But well-known iOS developer Hamza Sood has just confirmed that the new iPhones indeed come with 2GB of RAM. It also means iPhone 6s Plus will have 2GB of RAM. He has also confirmed that iPad Pro has 4GB of RAM, but an Adobe press release had accidentally revealed it.

He seems to have run a simple test in Xcode to confirm it as you can see in the screenshot above. He has explained in a followup tweet that the image assets (1GB, 2GB, 4GB) were based on the memoryClass key.
Not much of a surprise but Xcode confirms 2GB of RAM for the 6s (and 6s plus), and 4GB for the iPad Propic.twitter.com/X8Ym4DtamS

The image asset is chosen based on the memoryClass key in the simdevicetype’s capabilities.plist. 0 = <1GB, 1 = 1GB, 2 = 2GB, 3 = 4GB.
