The base iPhone 16 models are reportedly getting more RAM and Wi-Fi 6E

Apple has finally begun to pay a little more attention to the basic line of iPhone devices, and it looks like that trend will continue this year. Namely, the basic iPhone 16 models, unlike the current iPhone 15 generation, will also receive improvements in their interior, so that they do not fall far behind the Pro models. Thus, the iPhone 16 and iPhone 16 Plus will reportedly get more RAM, which will jump from the current six to eight gigabytes, and they will also be accompanied by support for Wi-Fi 6E.

This newspaper is the words of Jeff Pu from the investment company Haitong International Securities as reported by MacRumors. For years, Apple has kept the basic and Pro iPhone models separate when it comes to performance. However, it does not necessarily mean that this will change now only if the basic models get more RAM, because more RAM may also arrive on the Pro models, so that the gap between them continues.

The entire iOS experience of Apple devices is based on optimization, which allows the RAM to make better use of the software's registry elements. On the other hand, iPhones have never required large amounts of this memory to be able to operate at full capacity. However, regardless, more RAM is always better for future updates and for the increasingly popular artificial intelligence that is coming to phones.

When it comes to connectivity, Pu also claims that the base iPhone 16 models will have support for Wi-FI 6E which will allow them to download and upload files faster, as this standard works at a frequency of 6 GHz. However, to get this, you have to invest money in a new Wi-Fi router, which will be the only way to enjoy faster speeds.

The upcoming Apple series of phones will arrive later this year, and if Apple doesn't change something in its current presentation pace, it should be at the end of summer, that is, at the beginning of autumn. However, there is still a lot of time until then, and we should bear in mind the fact that plans can always be changed during such a period, especially before the devices officially enter mass production.
