I agree. Putting 1GB of RAM would be terribly planned obsolescence, as 1GB RAM devices will have a shorter lifespan than 2GB RAM devices, we also don't know when will Apple make the cut, but if iOS 12 -or 13- drops support for 1GB RAM devices, that's too short of a lifespan for a new device (regardless if it has an older processor and screen, the iPad is new) so it would make perfect sense to include 2GB (not 3, it cannot have more than their flagship device -9.7 Pro-) so I'd say pretty surely that it has 2GB.Well, going back to 1GB makes no sense and given that even the 9.7" Pro doesn't have more than 2GB, I'd bet a large amount of money that this lower cost option won't have more than that. So by deduction, I'd say that 2GB is practically certain.
has it been confirmed that this will have 2gb ram ?
If apple are cost cutting on this model maybe they won't bother.
Agreed. Even the iPhone SE has 2GB RAM.Well, going back to 1GB makes no sense and given that even the 9.7" Pro doesn't have more than 2GB, I'd bet a large amount of money that this lower cost option won't have more than that either. So by deduction, I'd say that 2GB is practically certain.
Yet everyone in this forum LOVES to bash the new ipad... Its great to see posts like yours nowadays. I don't really know why people so negative, so dissapointed about everything apple does but apple's stocks and sales keep going up. If you look around the threads about the new ipad everyone is dissapointed like they were going to buy an ipad air 2 just before the new ipad announced and apple screwed them over...It's got 2 GB. The website clearly shows split screen apps in the marketing for this iPad. So relax. It'll be fine. This is one hell of an entry level iPad for the money. This is a huge upgrade for anyone using an iPad older than an Air 2. In every way it's faster, nicer cameras, more ram , multitasking, higher storage capacity...... FOR $329. This is the no brainer iPad for those that have been holding out forever.
