However, the iPhone 15 Pro will not be available until the end of the year there is already much to report from the overseas supply chain. The latest bit comes from Taiwanese supply chain research company TrendForcewhich claims Apple has increased its RAM order on the iPhone 15 Pro.

TrendForce writes in its latest newsletter that Apple will “increase the capacity and the specifications of the DRAM solutions of the next generation of iPhone, which will be released this year”. It follows a previous report by TrendForce in October when it was claimed that Apple would add a “storage capacity upgrade” to the next iPhone, increasing RAM from 6GB to 8GB in the Pro model. The standard iPhone will likely stay at 6GB.

(Although Apple has not officially revealed how much memory is in the iPhone 14/14 Pro, MacRumors discovered the numbers in a stack of Xcode files. This is how the amount of RAM in the iPhone 13 was reported. It was also predicted by Supply Chain Analysts.)

Apple’s iPhones have run with less storage than competing Android devices. It’s odd, considering the homegrown Bionic chip regularly outperforms Android devices on Gizmodo’s internal benchmark charts. We use Geekbench and some web-based tests to get relative numbers, but the A16 Bionic performs well – and that’s only with 6GB of RAM. So far it’s faster than in every way Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8 Gen 2, MediaTek’s Dimensity 9000, and Google’s Tensor G2, all with 8GB to 12GB of RAM.

We know a little bit about what’s in the pipeline for those iPhone 15 coming later this year. We’re looking for one USB-C port, as reports show Apple will comply with the transition starting with the iPhone 15 – especially since the compliance date is 2024. We may see solid-state buttons on the device that behave like tiny trackpads. Apple will use its Taptic Engines to provide haptic feedback when the buttons are activated. Apple could also offer an “Ultra” variant of its iPhone to appeal to rugged users, much like the Apple Watch Ultra is marketing. Apple’s iPhone 15 Pro Will Reportedly Pack More Memory
