If what Smith has been saying throughout turns out to be true, both Apple iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus carry memory specifications similar to their predecessors. Meaning, if true, Apple iPhone 8 will feature 2GB of RAM whereas iPhone 8 Plus will pack 3GB of RAM under the hood. Tenth anniversary Apple iPhone X could also feature 3GB of RAM, though. There have been multiple reports Apple is likely doing away with Touch ID in favour of Facial recognition, at least on Apple iPhone X. So, additional 1GB RAM would probably help it perform more hardware-intensive tasks like facial recognition.
