When Apple introduced the iPhone SE and 9.7-inch iPad Pro yesterday, it spilled many of the spec details of both devices, including the megapixel counts of their cameras and their screen resolutions. Not all of the specs of the two devices were revealed by Apple, though, but the good news is that they’re coming out anyway thanks to some iOS apps.
Both the iPhone SE and 9.7-inch iPad Pro come equipped with 2GB of RAM. That’s according to the app Smart Memory Lite, which was run on both devices by TechCrunch’s Matthew Panzarino. He also ran the Geekbench benchmark test on both devices, showing that the iPhone SE put up a single-core score of 2538 and a multi-core score of 4421, while the 9.7-inch iPad Pro put up a single-core score of 3022 and a multi-core score of 5107.

There’s some good news and some not-so-good news here. The good news is that the iPhone SE packs 2GB of RAM, just like the iPhone 6s, which is good to see in the affordable 4-inch phone. However, the 9.7-inch iPad Pro has half the RAM of the 4GB 12.9-inch iPad Pro. Additionally, the iPhone SE’s A9 processor appears to be clocked at the same speed as the iPhone 6s’s A9, while the 9.7-inch iPad Pro’s A9X chip is slightly underclocked compared to the 12.9-inch iPad Pro (2.16GHz vs 2.25GHz).
Now that we’re getting a more full picture of Apple’s new devices, what do you think of the iPhone SE and 9.7-inch iPad Pro?
