The iPhone 13 Pro comes with 6 GB of LPDDR4X RAM. It’s a bit dated as of the latest memory variant of the phone since LPDDR5 is already available.
Last month Apple launched its newest iPhone series, the iPhone 13, which is in great demand. The company is also reportedly extending the delivery date for new orders from late September to the last week of October.
The iPhone 13 Pro lineup comes with upgraded specs, and the folks at TechInsights have taken apart the model with 256GB of internal storage to take a look at the inside. It reveals some interesting information about the device.
Reporting from Gizmochina (October 4), the information shared by the team reveals that the iPhone 13 Pro comes with 6 GB of LPDDR4X RAM. This version is a bit old as the latest variant of mobile memory because LPDDR5 is already available.
Apart from that, it was also revealed that the GPUs on the iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 Pro appear to be the same, except for the number of cores. The Standard model is reported to have a 4-core GPU, while the Pro model comes with a 5-core GPU. This is a similar approach Apple is taking with its new M1-powered Mac devices, where the low-cost model has a 7-core GPU while the more expensive model packs an 8-core GPU.
The demo also reveals that the iPhone 13 has a 1.7-micrometer wide camera, which means it has a larger pixel size than the iPhone 12 with 1.4-micrometer pixel size. On the other hand, the Pro model offers a wide camera with a pixel size of 1.9 micrometers, up from the 1.4-micrometer pixel size of its predecessor.
Apple uses its own chipsets, including the A15, Audio Codec, and Audio Amplifier. Other components come from suppliers such as Qualcomm, KIOXIA, NXP, STMicroelectronics, USI, Qorvo, and Broadcom.
The cost for the iPhone 13 Pro components was $570, higher than what Apple cost to make the $548 iPhone 12 Pro. The price increase was due to a more expensive chip, NAND memory, screen subsystem, and an increase in the cost of body materials. Keep in mind that this price does not include other costs such as software, labor, shipping, and others.
Currently, the Apple iPhone 13 Pro 256 storage model is available for purchase for USD 1,099. This means Apple is selling it for 1.9 times the cost of making the phone.
