It sounds crazy but nowhere near the level we are right now, when 1.5 TB memory may not be enough for those professionals and we have supercomputers. The demand for computing power explodes exponentially, then hardware demand.Just editing home video.it is so crazy how time changes i recall when 256mb was a lot
Same here.When was that? 2 decades ago?
I skipped the original iPad because I knew I wouldn't be happy with its performance given the single core processor and only 256MB RAM.
In fairness, the iPad Air received 5 major firmware updates same as iPad 2 and if you go by years supported, then it actually received longer support. Besides, the iPad 2+iOS 8/9 was pretty unbearable so realistically, it was just okay for 2-3 years while the iPad Air+iOS 12 is slow and prone to app reloads but relatively more tolerable.Skipped 256 MB iPad and went for 512 MB iPad 2.
Skipped 1 GB iPad Air and went for iPad Air 2.
Skipped 1 GB iPhone 6 and went for iPhone 6s.
These are amongst the longest support iDevices Apple has made.
All new iPhones do 4K for example, and it's a significant improvement, even on 1080p screens..4GB is good for multiple years unless you're doing crazy stuff with video that you most likely are not doing..?
Particularly if you dont particularly care about 4K.. And why should you? Most people's displays still aren't 4k, if it's just home video it's probably unnecessary. Why use all that extra space and horsepower?
Be sure to state that as opinion (same as what I'm saying here) because I have 10 or so programs running in the background all the time while editing RAW photos or large drawing/illustration files (often have 10-20+ layers.) I usually have Pixelmator and Procreate open while also listening to music, having safari, youtube, and facebook open and used cause I have ADD and sometimes take breaks between projects to refresh my brain.If you want to do something more serious, 4GB won’t last even a year. This includes video editing and music editing. 6GB and more is required, just like a desktop computer.
Yeah there is no iDevice which records in HDR which is odd though lolThe iPhones don't do HDR for 4K video recording AFAIK.
That was proven false by @tps3443.Also with the 1TB Versions the reason why they have 6GB of RAM is because of the huge capacity, even the Galaxy S10+ has more RAM for its 1TB aversion than its other capacities ( probably for memory management) but I believe that is the case too
Please link to the prove. The same person also claimed many apps were not working on 4GB iPads.
On a device where they don't advertise RAM specs as an upsell?There is no technical reason for 1 TB storage to require 6 GB RAM. It’s a marketing choice.
