Hi! Welcome to the Apple Online Store. How may I help you this evening?
Hi, I would like to check the status of my order with you
We are unable to view placed orders here in chat.
If you used your Apple ID, you can log in and view your order details or you can ring Sales Support.
I was just wondering why my iPhone 5 Status has been "Preparing for Shipment" for 2 days now
When it is supposed to be delivered on the 21st
It will say that until it actually dispatches.
When your order does dispatch, you will be notified with an email, it will include the carrier and the tracking information as well.
But if my order states "Delivers 21/09" is that guaranteed?
Yes, if you are seeing that, yes.
Theres just 1 more thing...
Is the new A6 Processor Quad Core?
Yes, the new iPhone 5 would have that.
I know it has the A6 chip. But is it quad core?
They are dual core.
How much RAM does it have?
You can choose between 8, 16 or 32G.
Those are the options for your iPhone 5 purchase.
What? The iPhone 5 comes in 16, 32 and 64gb
I meant RAM.
Sorry, I was thinking iPod.
You are correct, it's been a long day.
I know the feeling!
So anything on you system in regards to the RAM?
Would you like to order your iPhone here online today?
You have the option of 16,32 or64G.
Those are the options.
That is memory.....
Correct, there is not RAM on the iPhone.
That is the size of the memory you have.
Random Access Memory (RAM) provides space for your computer to read and write data to be accessed by the CPU (central processing unit). When people refer to a computer's memory, they usually mean its RAM.
The iPhone is not the same.
It's not like a computer.
It offers flash storage like an iPod does.
So you have the 16, 32 and 64G. You also get the iCloud of 5GB free storage as well, and you can purchase more from iCloud if you would like.
confirmation that the iPhone 5 has 1GB of ram based on the part numbers listed on the A6 chip itself. After some investigation with Kyle Wiens from iFixit, we've been able to confirm their findings as well, using Samsung's own product guides.
I'm sorry, I don't understand what you are wanting to know.
These are not Samsung products.
The iPhone is near enough made out of entirely Samsung Parts.
The Memory used in the iPhone 5 is Samsung memory
The iPhone 5 has 1GB of RAM.
I can't discuss that with you nor do I have that information here in chat
Do you want to order your iPhone 5 today?
is this your first day as a specialist?
No actually over 5 years.
Also. I also stated at the top of the chat i wanted to check my status on my pre-order for my iPhone 5.
Like I said, long day, long week.
Let me send you the link to our tech specs
That will offer any spec info you would want.
I want to know how much RAM the iPhone 5 has. It doesn't have that here
Any other information that is not on the tech spec page is proprietary.
So I spend £600 on an iPhone and I'm not allowed to know how much RAM it has?
That is the information available, when you choose the 16 G model, that will leave you with approximately 14G of space for other content.
The iOS takes up about 2GB of space.
RAM is what gives the phone its speed.
not the Flash Storage space.
The Chip does give the phone its speed as well as the storage space and the amount of content you have on that iPhone.
I think when you receive your iPhone you should visit a local Apple Store Genius Bar, or you can Also ring AppleCare.
Thanks for chatting with me! Is there anything else I can help with while you are here today?
I am afraid you may need a refresher course on Apple Products. I have more of an idea about this stuff than you do.
Did you already purchase your iPhone 5 as you stated earlier?
Then what can I help you with now?
If you already purchased your iPhone, you chose the one perfect for your needs.
Would you like to add AppleCare to your iPhone?
No need. I have 1 years free warranty and then I'll get the next iPhone.
Brilliant,Thanks for chatting with me today, We appreciate your businesss. If you would like more help, please chat with us again.
