Is there any news or rumours of iPad Pro 9.7 with RAM 4GB in the upcoming conferences?
It appears that using Apple Pencil on RAM 2 Gb is to slow to my handwriting.

You should either write slower or sell that thing and get a 12.9. I would doubt a new one is coming so soon.

Puonti,
By meaning next year , you mean early 2017?

My teacher speaks too fast. It's a shame that I cannot slow my speed of writing due to that I would not be able to catch up with my class

The 12.9 was just released last fall (November?). I don't see an update coming until at least that time this year, so, six months+

no no no, I mean the 12,9 " iPad Pro. How old is it? :)
@Mcdevidr said they will update the iPad 12,9" soon.
It was released in November of 2015. Its not even a year old.

If apple holds to an annual release date, then we'll see a refresh this fall, if not then we wait. Apple plays close to the vest and doesn't discuss future release dates, so its all speculation.

Yeah, I guess you are right. I don't know when Apple relate the iPad Pro 12.9" ... so I was wondering what @Mcdevidr wrote here.

Thank you guys :-*

So is this correct, you can't write too fast on 9.7 but 12.9 is fine :eek: !?!??

Keeping in mind that RAM is not one of the things that Apple promotes/reveals it is not possible that they will provide an upgrade to the 9.7 Pro that consists solely of a RAM upgrade.

The 9.7 Pro was released 3/2016 (approx. 18 months after the 9.7 Air 2) The mini 4 was released nearly 2 years after the mini 2. (The mini 3 was purely a cosmetic release)

Since Apple has said repeatedly that customers don't replace their iPads as frequently as they used to, it seems that they've moved beyond the 12 month release cycle to an 18 month cycle or longer.

I expect the 9.7 Pro (internals) to be updated no sooner than 9/2017 though the introduction of a jade gold model could appear in 3/2017. Unless there is some new capabilities introduced into iOS that would require 4GB, I don't believe such an upgrade would include 4GB RAM.

The 12.9 Pro was released in 11/2015 with an additional storage option available 3/2016. I would be surprised to see the 12.9 Pro updated in 2016. I'm betting on a 3/2017 for the 2nd gen 12.9 Pro.
