Thread: iPhone 4 Memory.
08-20-2012, 09:30 PM #1iPhone 4 Memory.
I just wanted to figure something out. I remember back in the first few months when I purchased my iPhone 4, I had monitored usage and all those little things and noticed it having 400+ MB of free ram to use. Now a days, even after a restore and reboot. My phone is showing a usage of 150MB active on startup??? 50MB wired is understandable, but how is there 150MB used on startup? It doesn't make any sense to me. This is without using any load on startup tweaks as well.
Is there anyway to free up this memory that is occupied on startup? If so, how?

This is quite normal, you have to remember that an iphone is like a computer
even when your computer is idle, there are things called "processes" that are constantly running, and the processor is constantly accessing data from memory (RAM)
this is the same way with an iphone, and there really is not anything you can do
if you want most amount of free RAM as possible, the phone needs to be un-jailbroken, and you should only run stock apps, but where's the fun in that?

RAM is for using....

As far as the RAM issue goes.... Turn off any memory intensive tweaks that you don't use or rarely use, they take up memory. Also make sure to close inactive apps in your multitask bar, this will free you up even more. But if you want 100% performance at certain times, put your phone into safe mode, this turns off all Mobile Substrate extensions that could be taking up memory, and some tasks can takes up lots of memory...I will no longer be very active here anymore due to a variety of reasons.
