2018 iPad Pro With 1TB Storage Has 6GB RAM, Lower Capacities Have 4GB

Following Apple's event in Brooklyn this morning, more information has come to light about the new iPad Pros, particularly how much RAM is included in each model of the updated tablets. Using Xcode, developer Steve Troughton-Smith has discovered that the 11-inch and 12.9-inch iPad Pro models with 1TB of storage have 6GB of RAM, compared to 4GB for previous generation iPad Pros.



This is the first time that any iPad Pro model has supported 1TB of storage, and 6GB is the highest amount of RAM seen on Apple's pro-level tablets, if the data is accurate. For any storage capacity below 1TB, including 64GB, 256GB, and 512GB, each iPad Pro model retains the previous generation's 4GB of RAM. RAM isn't an aspect of the iPad that Apple details to customers, so this information hasn't been confirmed, but the Xcode test appears largely accurate.

At 1TB, Apple sells the 11-inch iPad Pro for $1,549.00 and the 12.9-inch iPad Pro for $1,749.00, making them the most expensive iPad models ever sold. Apple has increased the RAM in both iPad and iPhone over the years. The iPhone X, for example, had 3GB RAM, while the iPhone XS and XS Max have 4GB RAM. The lower-cost iPhone XR retains the iPhone X's 3GB RAM.

GOOD. People who don’t buy the 1tb model should not be granted the privelidge of getting a future proof iPad. 4gb is fine but I’m glad it’ll be outdated much faster


This might be one of the dumbest comments I've ever seen.

I remember the days when SJ used to mock the Android fragmentation. Well, I gotta say that Apple has passed them in this department by far with almost every product that they have released recently lol

That's not okay. There are lots of reasons to want 6GB of RAM in one of these, very few reasons to need 1TB of storage.

To the people complaining: Do you do anything on your iPad that would warrant 6GB over 4GB? Personally it’s not an issue for me, but just really wondering about others.
