    I'm considering creating games and such for the iphone and was wondering what the capabilities are. Such as:

    General:
    How many polys can the iphone comfortably render?

    Can I use all the same features of regular unity with iphone unity if I wanted to? like real time shadows and instancing, pixel lights, colliders, etc? Is there anything specifically that I can not use or do?

    How much RAM can be used for a game on the iphone? Its my understanding that it uses software rendering so no VRAM and it has 512 meg of RAM total but I don't know how much of that is free.

    Texturing:
    Can the iphone show Normal maps, Bump maps, Specular maps, Luminous maps, etc?

    Thanks!

    Look in the iPhone forum, particularly the FAQ, as all these questions have been answered many times.
