The iPhone 7 Plus May Have Got That RAM Boost After All

By Aatif Sulleyman on at

Unsurprisingly but still annoyingly, Apple decided not to talk about RAM at its Wednesday iPhone launch, instead choosing to focus purely on the new A10 Fusion processor. That led many of us to just assume that the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus featured 2GB of the stuff -- the same as their predecessors.

One of the rumours ahead of launch was that the Plus would pack 3GB of RAM, but it turns out the gossipers could have been spot on after all.

A new Geekbench listing for Apple’s latest phablet, posted in the aftermath of this week’s event, claims the iPhone 7 Plus features 3GB of RAM. It also gives the handset a multi-core score of 5,363. In contrast, the iPhone 6S Plus scored 4,309. That's a significant boost.
