  • Tony Trenkle Jr.

    Do we know how much RAM is in the new iPad Pro?

    • Rowan09

      Should be 4 or more since the current has 4GB.

      • BuBubbi

        There’s only 2GB in the 9.7″ pro.
        It’s only the 12.9″ that has 4GB.

    • BuBubbi

      Mine just arrived, and I can confirm it has 4GB RAM.

      • Tony Trenkle Jr.

        Awesome!!

  • Cones1r

    Is there no NFC on the iPad?

  • AOGV

    Why no Bluetooth 5.0?

    • BAiNZy3

      not even any of the new iMac’s have it, including the iMac Pro

    • Rowan09

      i was thinking the same thing.

  • BAiNZy3

    does it have sold state home button like the iPhone 7/7Plus ??

    • BuBubbi

      Nope. Standard click button.

      • BAiNZy3

        kinda wierd didn’t you think considering

      • BuBubbi

        Well.. As the article I found it in puts it:

        “The home button is still present and correct on the new iPad Pro, but unlike the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus this still clicks into place physically; there’s no haptic buzz under your finger to give the illusion of a press without any actual movement.

        This is because the new iPad sadly isn’t waterproof so you won’t be able to watch a movie in the bath and not worry about dropping it in. Is that a big issue? Not really, but would have been nice to see.”

        Then I can see why it’s not in the iPad..

      • BAiNZy3

        yeah makes enough sense.

  • M_Hawke

    So they keep the standard 3.5mm headphone jack on the iPad Pros and not the silly Lightning jack on the iPhones…

  • My nama jeff

    RAM????????????????????

    • Undisclosed, we’ll know when iFixit tears it down.

    • BuBubbi

      Mine just arrived, and I can confirm it had 4GB RAM..
