iOS App Memory Budget

When building an app, it’s always better to be aware of your apps memory.Screenshot 2015-02-28 17.19.55

Things to consider:

  • Limit your assets file size or just load them when they are need.
  • Avoid memory splashes.
  • try not to go beyond 65Mb of RAM, it would kill your app instantly anyway.
