Code-digging tips how much RAM may the iPhone X, 8 and 8 Plus have

If you have been in doubt that this will be the most exciting season for smartphones since Apple unleashed the OG iPhone on us, wonder no more, as a few more tidbits of information got out about the upcoming iPhones over the weekend, and it seems that Apple will be changing a lot, both inside and outside the new handsets. Something that won't change, however, is reportedly the RAM amount.
Apple developer Steve Troughton-Smith has been at the forefront of iPhone tips ever since the HomePod firmware leaked out, and after the last round of code-digging, he is now disclosing that the iPhone 8 will have 2 GB RAM, just like the iPhone 7 before it, while the iPhone 8 Plus and the iPhone X will ship with 3 GB, like the 7 Plus

It shouldn't come as a surprise that Apple won't be changing the random access memory amount for the new iPhones, as it takes a rather gradual approach to such upgrades, but with all the talk about new augmented reality push for the iPhone X, one would think that at least that one might ship with four gigs. We'll see if this tip is credible very soon, as the wait is almost over, and Apple is about to take the stage and announce the phones as early as tomorrow.
