It seems that Xcode’s sole purpose isn’t it’s only!
Hamza Sood, an iOS developer, recently discovered in Xcode that the new iPhone 6S and 6S Plus both have 2GB of RAM, while the iPad Pro, Apple’s new 12.9 inch tablet, has 4GB. Sood claims the image assets shown above are “chosen based on the memoryClass key in the simdevicetype’s capabilities.plist.”
Adobe issued a Creative Cloud press release earlier this week that stated the iPad Pro had 4GB of RAM, but it updated the release soon after to remove any reference to the tablet’s memory.
Yet again, Apple didn’t mention how much RAM was in fact inside the new iPhones during the “Hey Siri” event, nor did they mention the memory built in the iPad Pro. The RAM count on these devices isn’t even present on the spec sheets for them. I wonder whether Apple’s ashamed of the RAM count they’ve placed in the devices or if they’re just not telling us…
