Among the rumors and news we hear almost everyday about Apple's iPhone 6, today we've got a new report from Asian site TechNews.tw, the report say that it has received intel from Apple's supply chain suggesting that the second generation of iPad Air will feature 2GB of RAM—double that of the current model.
According to the site, which doesn’t have much of a track record when it comes to Apple rumors, the increase in RAM will be limited to the new iPad Air. The second-generation Retina iPad mini is expected to once again feature 1 GB of RAM…
However, sources pointed out that Apple will introduce in the fall will be the first generation of iPad Air 2 use up to 2GB of memory, will be the largest ever for all iOS devices, but also introduced the iPad mini 3 still will remain at 1GB, and not with the increase memory.
In 2012 Apple introduced 1GB of RAM into its iPad line with the third-gen model , and it has remained the same ever since. This has been a major source of criticism from users, who feel that the low spec hampers the tablet’s capabilities.
It seems like running two apps side-by-side would require more RAM than just one, so beefing up the iPad Air’s RAM this year would make sense. And since the multitasking feature is said to be limited to the Air, the mini wouldn’t need the upgrade.
