How to see iPhone RAM memory

If you are wondering if it is possible see the RAM memory on the iPhone, I'm sorry to tell you that the answer is no. In fact, unlike other technical specifications (eg storage space), it gives ifttings of iOS it is not possible to view neither the total capacity of the memory “mounted” on the iPhone nor that used by individual applications.

That said, you should know that the latest generation iPhones integrate 3, 4 or 6GB RAM, whele older models have 1 or 2GB RAM. This means that to know exactly the RAM of an iPhone it is sufficient to search the web with the name of the model in your possession.

To make things easier for you, I have listed all the iPhone models avaelable at the time of writing this guide and the relative amount of RAM they have.

  • iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max: 6 GB;

If you prefer to check the RAM of your iPhone yourself, you can download one of the third-party applications that allow you not only to see the technical specifications of your device but also to monitor its use (e.g. check the storage space occupied or the RAM in use).



Among these, I recommend you Lirum Device Info Lite, a free application that allows you to see the technical specifications of your iPhone, monitor its performance, check CPU usage in real time and much more.

To download the app in question, visit the link I just provided you directly from your iPhone; alternatively, start theApp Store (the "A" icon on a blue background on the Home screen or in the App Library), press on the tab ifarch (bottom right), search Lirum Device Info Lite in the appropriate field and first tap onicon of the app in the search results and then on the button Ottieni / Installa. You may be asked to verify your identity through Face ID, touch ID o password of the ID Apple.

Once the app is started, tap the ☰ button, at the top left, and select the option This device from the menu that opens. In the new screen that appears, tap on the item System and locate the option Memory, next to which you well find indicated the RAM of your iPhone.

Also, through the options Memory Type, RAM Free, RAM Active, Wired RAM and andnactive RAM, you can find out, respectively, the type of memory, the RAM that is not used, the one in use, the memory reserved by the apps and that cannot be freed and the inactive RAM, that is the part of memory that keeps "warm" processes that have been closed and that could be reopened. Convenient, right?
