In addition to our discovery yesterday that the new Apple TV has 2GB of RAM, Adobe has inadvertently leaked that the iPad Pro has twice the RAM of the iPad Air 2, which has 2GB of RAM.
A press release published yesterday, which highlights its new Creative Cloud mobile apps, specifically mentions four gigabytes of RAM on the iPad Pro.
“iPad Pro is great for creative workflows with a high res 12.9″ touch screen display at 2732 x 2048 pixels, A9X chip, and 4GB RAM,” reads the press release. Soon thereafter, Adobe has updated the press release to no no longer mention 4GB of RAM.
The iPad Pro obviously needs extra RAM to drive its massive 12.9-inch screen with 50 percent more pixels than existing Retina iPads.
The extra RAM should also enable smoother overall performance, especially when running two apps in iOS 9’s side-by-side multitasking mode.
The 64-bit A9X processor inside the tablet provides nearly twofold CPU performance increase and even faster graphics, in addition to double the memory bandwidth.
In addition to the fully laminated 12.9-inch screen, the iPad Pro features four-speaker audio, two times faster Touch ID, an eight-megapixel iSight camera on the back, dual microphones for enhanced Siri functionality, the Apple-designed Smart Connector on its side for connecting the new Smart Keyboard and more.
