Apple has always been mysterious about the RAM quantity on its iDevices, with only the teardowns revealing what was actually inside. The iPad Pro is particularly interesting in that regard, since it’s supposed to replace a laptop after all. While Apple didn’t unveil how much RAM it has, Adobe did that by mistake, through a leak.
We’ll remind you that the 12.9 inch slate has an Apple A9X chip, that’s apparently as powerful as PC chip, according to Apple. One of Adobe’s recent press releases mentions casually that the tablet has 4 GB of RAM. Adobe had one of its developers on stage during the Apple event, to demo the Creative Cloud apps, including the Photoshop Fix, as well as Adobe Comp CC and Adobe Photoshop Sketch.
The dev also showed how the apps work in iOS 9, with multitasking and everything ran smoothly. 4 GB of RAM has become a habit for mobile devices this year, with models like the Galaxy Note 5, ASUS ZenFone 2, but also not many tablets sporting such quantities. Considering Apple usually relies on 1 or 2 GB of RAM, the jump is truly impressive here.
