Introduction [summary]iPhone 4 Teardown.[/summary] stripped down the iPhone 4 down to its basic components. Apple definitely spent time giving the phone a thorough makeover, meticulously changing every little facet. We are happy to splay the fruits of their labor for your enjoyment! We have confirmed that the iPhone's A4 processor has 512 MB RAM, unlike the iPad's more limited 256 MB.
