Mike Peterson for AppleInsider:

Apple doesn’t itself disclose how much memory its smartphones pack, but benchmark statistics and other data can shine some light on the subject. Benchmarks for the iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11, for example, reveal that they both were equipped with 4GB of RAM.

Now, it appears Apple has shipped flagship smartphones with 6GB of memory for the first time. That’s according to plist files discovered within the new Xcode 12.1 beta that were first spotted by Twitter user Hiraku.
