The Cupertino giant announced the iPhone 15, iPhone 15 Plus, iPhone 15 Pro, iPhone 15 Pro Max, Apple Watch Series 9, Apple Watch Ultra 2 and AirPods Pro (2nd generation) with USB Type-C port. The significant highlight of the event was Apple switching to a USB Type C port for iPhones.
Interestingly, Apple introduced the Lightning port for iPhones over a decade ago on September 12, 2012. The Cupertino giant also announced the latest A17 Pro chipsets powering the Pro and Pro Max smartphones. Apple didn’t officially reveal its smartphones’ RAM and Battery capacity at the launch event.
Apple used to reveal only the battery backup results at the event. A report from MacRumors has revealed the RAM capacity of the newly launched iPhone 15 series smartphones. The report confirms that Apple has increased the battery capacity of the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max smartphones.
An X user with user ID “aaronp613,” also a software code researcher, confirmed the RAM details of the smartphone after the release of Xcode 15 Release Candidate. The Xcode confirms that the Pro and Pro Max smartphones feature 8GB of RAM. The previous iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max were equipped with 6GB of RAM.
The vanilla iPhone 15 and 15 Plus will continue to sport 6GB of RAM, similar to its predecessor iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus. The Xcode revealed the RAM of previous generation iPhones, which confirmed the accuracy rate of the code. The increase in RAM for the Pro Max smartphones will improve performance.
