The iPhone 6s made a big difference when browsing the web with Safari when compared to previous iPhones. This can primarily be attributed to the addition of an extra gigabyte of RAM in Apple’s latest flagship phone, which brought its total amount up to 2GB.

The iPad Pro takes the amount of RAM found in iOS devices a step further. It features a whopping 4GB of RAM—double the amount found in the iPad Air 2 and iPhone 6s. This means that the iPad Pro contains more RAM than any other iOS device since the platform’s inception.

The result? Unsurprisingly, when compared to the next most powerful iPad, the iPad Air 2, the iPad Pro performs much better when it comes to keeping web pages loaded in memory. Hence, browsing the web tends to be a smoother and more cohesive experience on the iPad Pro when compared to lesser equipped iPads. Watch our video walkthrough and see for yourself.

I don't get why people need to keep a billion tabs open. Maybe that's something I never got into. At most - open 3 tabs.

This is why I'd like 4GB of RAM on the iPhone and iPad Air. But it isn't just about website tabs, it's also about multitasking applications. Sometimes you want to copy some content from one app to another and when you go back to the app you intend to paste content to it reloads the whole app and you've lost what you wrote or created. That is becoming less common with auto saving to the flash storage but it is still a problem.
