iPhone 14 Pro to Feature More RAM Than Ever Before

Apple's "iPhone 14 Pro" models will feature more memory than has ever been offered in an iPhone before, according to a recent report.

iPhone 14 Mock Roundup 2
Apple is said to be planning to launch four iPhone 14 models in September 2022, including a 6.1-inch "‌iPhone 14‌," 6.7-inch "‌iPhone 14‌ Max," 6.1-inch "‌iPhone 14‌ Pro," and 6.7-inch "‌iPhone 14‌ Pro Max." In a research note with Haitong International Securities, obtained by MacRumors, analyst Jeff Pu said that the two "Pro" models will be equipped with 8GB of memory. This would be a significant increase from the ‌iPhone‌ 12 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro's 6GB of memory, which currently stands as the most memory ever offered in an ‌iPhone‌.

The non-Pro ‌iPhone‌ models tend to have less memory, so it seems likely that the ‌iPhone 14‌ and ‌iPhone 14‌ Max will have less than 8GB. Even with the ‌iPhone 14‌ Pro taking ‌iPhone‌ memory to the next level, the device still has some way to go before reaching the levels of memory offered in the iPad Pro, which introduced a 16GB memory option in early 2021 based on storage capacity.

Pu added that the standard ‌iPhone 14‌ models will start with 64GB of storage, despite the iPhone 13 lineup starting at 128GB of storage. It is unclear if the change is linked to any potential price reductions.

Pu also said that the ‌iPhone 14‌ Pro will feature a triple-lens rear camera system with an upgraded 48-megapixel Wide lens and 12-megapixel Ultra Wide and Telephoto lenses. This lines up with information shared by TF International Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo earlier this year, which claimed that the device's 48-megapixel lens will support 8K video recording.

While this rumor sounds fairly plausible, some other ‌iPhone 14‌ specifications forecasted by Pu seem to be far less likely, such as his claim that all four ‌iPhone 14‌ models will feature 120Hz displays. Apple has historically reserved high-refresh rate displays for high-end devices only, and reliable display industry analyst Ross Young said earlier this year that the standard ‌iPhone 14‌ and ‌iPhone 14‌ Max models will stick with 60Hz displays.

Pu has a mixed track record with Apple rumors. For example, he accurately claimed that 16-inch MacBook Pro and ‌iPad Pro‌ models with mini-LED displays would launch in 2021, but he was incorrect about HomePods with 3D sensing cameras launching in 2019.
