iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max Feature Increased 8GB of RAM

Apple never publicly advertises the amount of RAM included in iPhones, but MacRumors has confirmed that the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max are equipped with 8GB of RAM, up from 6GB in the iPhone 14 Pro models. Along with the new A17 Pro chip, extra RAM benefits overall system performance, particularly for multitasking.

iPhone 15 Pro lineup
In the Xcode 15 Release Candidate made available today, there are files confirming that the lower-end iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus are equipped with 6GB of RAM, while the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max each have 8GB of RAM. This information was obtained with assistance from software code researcher @aaronp613.

Previous RAM amounts:

  • iPhone 14: 6GB
  • iPhone 14 Plus: 6GB
  • iPhone 14 Pro: 6GB
  • iPhone 14 Pro Max: 6GB

New RAM amounts:

  • iPhone 15: 6GB
  • iPhone 15 Plus: 6GB
  • iPhone 15 Pro: 8GB
  • iPhone 15 Pro Max: 8GB

The same Xcode files accurately revealed RAM amounts for the iPhone 14 models last year and in several previous iPhone generations. The type of RAM in the iPhone 15 models remains unknown, but teardowns of the devices should confirm that information soon.

All four iPhone 15 models will be available to pre-order starting Friday, September 15 at 5 a.m. Pacific Time in the U.S. and over 40 other countries and regions. The devices are set to launch one week later on Friday, September 22.

It would be nice to know the history of ram amounts on every iPhone going back at least the last 10 years to see the improvements in each model considering that ram is one of those specifications that gets improved upon seldomly

If anybody has that information handy, that would be great if you could post it, it would be nice to see a chart of the ram on each iPhone model

Genuinely I think the 14P->15P is a bigger upgrade than the 14P was over the the 13P. This is a great year. Excited for 8GB!

There's always so many articles and debates about upgrading from last year's model, or even 2 years ago. Is it worth it??? Of course not unless you gots to have the latest!

These things last so long now. As someone who now tries to keep the phone until it doesn't get the new iOS any more, this looks like a great year to get something that will really hold up.

* 8GB RAM
* USB-C
* Spatial Recording
* GPU w/ Raytracing and Upscaling
* Tiny bezels
* Just switched to smaller SoC process
* Wi-Fi 6E
* Ultra Wideband 2
* Action Button
* Qi2

Individually many of these are minor but they really add up. Fortunately I'm due! See you in 2030!

iPhone 15 Pro

The first iPhone with an aerospace‑grade titanium design.
A17 Pro, a game-changing chip. A customizable Action
button. The most powerful iPhone camera system. And
USB-C with USB 3 for superfast transfer speeds.*
Why did apple feel it was necessary to say it was "aerospace-grade" Ti? Does it sound cooler? Why do we care if it's aerospace-grade vs toilet-grade Ti?
