No 8GB RAM this time around?

The iPhone 15 series is expected to launch sometime in September, and courtesy of the latest leak, we already have a supposed launch date of September 12th or 13th.

In terms of internals, the standard iPhone 15 models are expected to feature last year’s A16 Bionic chip, while the iPhone 15 Pro line is expected to feature the latest A17 Bionic chip. 

Unfortunately, we don’t really know much about the upcoming iPhone’s SoC. However, a new leak has shed light on a few interesting details.

Every year, iPhones get chip and RAM upgrades. Unfortunately, it looks like Apple is opting for only chip upgrades this year. A tipster by the X (formerly Twitter) handle named URedditor has shared a few details regarding Apple’s new A17 Bionic chip.

According to URedditor, there will be no RAM upgrades this year, Apple will stick to the same 6GB RAM. However, this contradicts the early rumors that said the iPhone 15 will feature 8GB memory. 

The tipster further added in a later post, “only seen 6GB; 8GB seems unlikely (but maybe not impossible).”

So, the iPhone 15 Pro line is definitely getting the next-generation A17 Bionic chip with a 6-core CPU and a 6-core GPU, adding an extra GPU core. 

The new A17 chip also comes with a clock speed boost to 3.7GHz, up from 3.46GHz on last year’s A16. So, the addition of the new chip will definitely make the iPhone 15 Pro models even faster, even if they get the same 6GB RAM. 

Regarding the A17 Bionic chip, Apple insider Mark Gurman has stated that Apple’s next chip is “noticeably snappier” and we’ve heard rumors that it could have 35% reduced power consumption. 

However, rumors also claim that Apple may switch the fabrication process from TSMC’s 3nm N3B to 3nm N3E in 2024. Unfortunately, Apple is switching the fabrication process to save costs, which could negatively impact the chip’s efficiency.
