On an old build there was a problem with one component that consumed a lot of RAM. As a result, another component started failing with a wrong error message. The first component has been fixed and does not consume extra memory now. However, I want to verify that second component was fixed, and in order to do that, I need a way to decrease the amount of free RAM. Any guidance on how to do that? Thanks :)

There was no 'stress-testing' tag, and I couldn't create one due to low reputation points –  oldbam Jul 3 '12 at 10:45
    
In the iphone simulator you select "low ram warning" :-) –  Bruce McLeod Jul 4 '12 at 2:50
