iPhone 4 has 512MB of RAM
How much RAM does iPhone 4 have? According to confirmed reports by MacRumors, iPhone 4 has 512MB of RAM which is twice the amount of memory in both the iPhone 3GS and iPad at 256MB. MacRumors goes on to suggest this is why the upcoming iMovie app will only run on iPhone 4 and not on past iPhone’s or even the iPad.
This is interesting to know because now iPhone 4 has the same A4 processor as the iPad, but twice as much memory and a significantly higher quality screen. Will the amount of memory on the devices effect how well they run iOS 4? We already know that older iPhone models will not get all the features of the new OS. And will iPad get a significant upgrade sometime this year to a retina display and more memory?
I’ve read some excellent stuff here. Certainly price bookmarking for revisiting. I surprise how a lot effort you set to make any such great informative site.
[…] The new Apple TV is looking better and better for $99. The RAM and flash storage capacity were discovered by iFixIt during their teardown of the device, and indicate that the device is just as powerful as an iPad and iPod touch 4G, although slightly weaker than the iPhone 4 due to a slightly different A4 chip and half the RAM (iPhone 4 has 512MB RAM).

[…] unlikely considering the current iPhone 4 has features that the iPad doesn’t; most notably twice the RAM at 512MB, dual cameras with FaceTime support, and the stunning PPI & screen resolution of the Retina […]
apple are ripping the pi*s if they are to bring out a updated ipad within a year and drop the !st G’s price, after spendin £600 on what may as well be an unfinished product, this would make me be very mad!!!
everything apple have ever released is an unfinished product!
I think that Apple is going to do something like what they did with the original iPhone, when they lowered the price dramatically. I think that the iPad 1st G was partly to get people comfortable with the device, and for there to be a surplus of apps by the time the much rumored about iPad 2nd G with a front-facing camera for FaceTime and, with this info about the RAM in the iPhone 4, a faster processor. This, along with iMovie, will definitely turn the iPad into more of a productive device, another step closer to replacing the laptop. Adding the Retina Display to the iPad will make apps like iBooks and games better.
