Apple iPad Pro comes with 4GB of RAM (update: source backtracks)

The new Apple iPad Pro is a gigantic tablet with a 12.9-inch display and it's a device focused on professionals as its name implies. As such, you might be curious to know more about its actual technical specifications and one area that Apple is traditionally not officially disclosing is the amount of RAM.

Thanks to Apple's partners from Adobe, though, this piece of information is now out in the wild: Adobe has revealed that the iPad Pro comes with 4GB of RAM. That's double the amount of RAM in the iPad Air 2, and will definitely contribute to making the iPad Pro a device that is future-proof.

Update: After the story got popular, Adobe has quickly edited out the part in its post where it mentions that the iPad Pro has 4GB of RAM. So we're back at the beginning, where we have no clarity about the amount of RAM on the new tablet. Why did Adobe remove the mention? We don't know whether it was just a detail that they were not supposed to publish that they removed, or whether it's something that was plain wrong, but we should understand as soon as a teardown appears.

Unfortunately, we still don't know how much RAM does Apple's most important product, the iPhone 6s, has. The company has not made the information official and we'd need to wait for the teardowns of the phone to learn whether there's still 1GB of RAM or whether Apple has upgraded to 2GB.

No osx on board = toy Shame on apple, this badboy could easily handle both osx + ios. Why make a toy then? Ios can't even fully use this excess of RAM.

Amplitube, Ampkit+, Korg Gadget, Korg Module, DM1, plenty more form Korg, Auria! Yes Amplitube is on PC aswell but most the time it doesn't work and I experienced this, same goes for Ableton or Cubase which I tried to use but WIndows environment suck when it comes to musician support. That's why I switched to OSX and I regret nothing :d But those I mentioned are from iOS

PitchPerfect and oTuner is better than Ampkit ! I don't use any other app you mentioned! And thanks for saying some names! I'm glad that some apps has graced iOS.

LOL! It's just a over-blown-iPod which is 13" in size and still needs another PC to just put music on it.

In surface, you can use following: 1. Download direct to Hard Drive ( Not crap iTunes system that's only limited to iTunes) 2. Put Via microSD 3. Use external hard drive 4. Use pen drive 5. Use Phones too ;) You can deTune the music from iPhones too. In fact, it can even put music on your phone, any phone! etc etc etc

maybe that reality is limited to you; go preach somewhere else, from what ive seen, ''statistics'' millions love their apple device. its not what you like, but like its said 3 +1 = 4 2+2 = 4 ; the smile that icrap would put in many peoples face surely doesnt need specs to back it up. its only people who want everything in onething complains.

Ignorance us a bliss, that's what iCrap utilizes to put smiles on those people's faces...but hey, they're still smiling; fools happily separated front their money :)

4 GB? Oh may be that's the reason new iSurfaceRipOff Pro is so expensive. Speaking of Surface, I can make iPad Apps with Surface but same can't be said the other way around. ;) Poor iSheeps will again make Apple rich by buying this BS.

My laptop has 4 GB RAM, 500 GB of storage, and costs $200 less. Just a figment of greed which diehard iFans would buy.

I think the iPad Pro is aimed at someone who needs it for business or for certain industry. It is a productivity between laptop and consuming device like iPad or iPhone... I doubt it's aimed at your highschool kid.

it's aimed at people who don't spend their money wisely.

Your comment is aimed at people who don't have a clue what value perception is. Price does not = value. When you go to high school they will teach you stuff on economics - until then I would just comment on changing fonts and icons articles.

So just because its a "pro", Apple went and fit a 4GB of RAM into the iPad. Meanwhile, ios 9 and its system resources will not occupy more than 2GB of RAM space.

Ipad pro = mac pro super overpriced for rich engineers, architects, physicians, and Taylor Swift's music editors
