How Much RAM Is in an iPhone? Why Apple Doesn’t Give Specs

When you buy an iPhone, you have several options. You can choose from a few different models; you can pick a color; you can select how much storage you want. The Phone 12 starts at 128 GB, and you have two other options, 256 GB or 512 GB. This amount affects what you can put on the device: apps, photos, videos, music, etc.

But you never see any options for RAM.

If you look at specs for new Android phones however, you’ll see how much RAM the devices have. Take Google’s Pixel phones, for example. If you look at the specs for the phones, you’ll see that “Memory & Storage” is a section in the specs. The Pixel 5 has 8 GB RAM, and the Pixel 4 models only have 6 GB RAM.

The Complete Guide to Taking Screenshots and Screen Recordings on Mac, iPhone, iPad, and Apple Watch

Taking screenshots on your Mac, iPhone, or iPad, is a great way to save things. Rather than save a URL of a web page, you can save a picture of it, so you can see it exactly as it was at the time you shot it. You may want to do this when you’ve bought something online, and want to keep a record of the purchase confirmation. You may also take screenshots just to remember items you’ve been shopping for on your iPhone or iPad, or to send to a friend to show them something you’ve seen. Or you may take a screenshot of some text to post on social media. Or, you may need to take screenshots to demonstrate a problem with your device.

On macOS, iOS, and iPadOS, it’s easy to take screenshots, crop them, and annotate them, and they save to the Photos app (on iOS and iPadOS) or to the Finder, so you can access them quickly. You can even take screenshots of your Apple Watch.

Here’s how to take screenshots on Apple devices.
