M1 iPad Pro Offers 8GB or 16GB RAM Options for First Time, Based on Storage Capacity

Apple's M1 iPad Pro is available with either 8GB RAM or 16GB RAM, the most memory that's ever been made available in an iPad model.

new ipad pro 11 inch
‌iPad Pro‌ models with 128GB, 256GB, or 512GB of storage will come with 8GB RAM, while ‌iPad Pro‌ models with 1TB or 2TB of storage will feature 16GB RAM.

It does not appear that there will be a way to customize lower storage ‌iPad Pro‌ models with the upgraded RAM, so those who want the 16GB RAM option will need to opt for higher storage tiers. Both the 11 and 12.9-inch ‌iPad Pro‌ models are available with up to 2TB storage.

The ‌iPad Pro‌ will be available for order on April 30, but orders will not ship out until late May.

Really hope they have something huge planned for the software because all this power will be worthless for just iOS apps.

They have to have virtualized macOS coming at WWDC, there is no other reason you would need 16GB RAM on an iPad Pro.

I thought RAM didn’t exist in iOSverse?
What is this “RAM”?

That much RAM for what? Did ANYONE have an issue with 6gb before? Even with multiple windows?

It's STILL iPad OS, nothing there is different. They would have to make the OS far different to justify buying a more expensive iPad for an overkill M1 and mini-LED.
