Apple iPad Air 2 rumored to get bump to 2GB of RAM
A report out of the Republic of China on Wednesday, states that Apple is going to bump the amount of RAM on the 9.7 inch Apple iPad Air 2, to 2GB. The OG Apple iPad Air comes with 1GB of RAM inside. The 7.9 inch Apple iPad mini with Retina display comes with 1GB of RAM, and the sequel model is not expected to receive an increase.

Both the Apple iPad Air 2, and the sequel to the iPad mini with Retina display, are believed to be equipped with the Touch ID fingerprint sensor embedded in the home button. And both are expected to be powered by the next-gen A8 processor.

While the Apple iPhone 6 is expected to be introduced during an Apple event scheduled for September 9th, there are a number of other new Apple devices that should be introduced in October at the earliest. That includes the 5.5 inch Apple iPhone phablet, the Apple iPad Air 2, and the Apple iPad mini with Retina display 2..

As far as Apple's iOS smartwatch is concerned, the latest speculation has 512MB of native memory on the wearable device, along with 8GB of NAND Flash. Most likely, the iWatch will not require users to sync it with an iPhone or iPad to work. As we told you earlier on Wednesday, the iWatch might not be released until sometime next year.
