It has been just confirmed by Apple, as reported by MacRumors, that the iPhone 4 showcasing the brand new IOS 4 comes with 512 MB RAM. This boost in memory is sure to give a notable performance jump to the iPhone 4. The earlier iPhones iPhone 3G had 128 MB and iPhone 3GS had 256 MB RAM respectively.
The higher amount of RAM will be particularly useful as Apple finally brings multitasking to its IOS 4. This multitasking feature has been present in Blackberry and Android for quite some time now. This is also the reason why the older iPhones will not get multitasking they simply do not have enough RAM to support it.
Apple unlike other manufacturers have not yet released a spec-sheet of the exact hardware for the iPhone 4. They are laying greater emphasis on the applications and features of the phone rather than the hardware.
The increased amount of RAM is not the only new feature for iPhone to boost. It also comes with a gaming social network called Game Centre where players can meet and greet, show off achievements and make friends. The iPhone is slated to come with a 5.0 MP camera. This will enable it to shoot 720p HD videos and even edit them with the iMovie app.
The iPhone 4 sporting the beautiful IOS 4 is surely the product to look forward to and like all Apple products, it has the potential to be a definite trend setter.
