Between this and only being able to get nano textured glass on the higher capacity models, this is a big pass for me.

As a 2018 12.9 inch owner since day 1, I feel super priced out of this higher tier, i’m pretty firmly in the 256gb group as I haven’t even filled my current ipad onboard up yet lmao.

The temptation to upsell me is almost completely gone as it’s nearly $600 more, we’re in macbook pro territory. I don’t think i’ll feel the ram hit or the CPU hit here, but it sucks getting a “lesser” product for nearly $1500 even.

Looking forward to the AI things they don’t do with this 16 core neural engine that they also haven’t done with the 16 core neural engine in my M1

Apple don't want its customers to know or care about RAM. Apple just wants you to use it and not know or care about the specs… except where it can sell in marketing.

Until they improve iPad OS… and make a version thats more Pro for iPad Pro… this doesn't really make much difference except for a very small minority of users.

Apple might as well have an iPad Pro and an iPad Pro Max if they're going to have these differences between them.

Makes sense. 8 GB will be fine for most people with modest needs.

Those who actually NEED more RAM and storage will order an iPad Pro with more RAM and storage. Choice is a good thing.
So you’re telling me that you’re fine with the idea Apple selling a Pro device with only 8GB Ram? Thanks to people like you Apple is offering M3 MacBook “Pro” with 8GB RAM :)
