I think it could have happened last year but iOS 7 using memory compression just like OS X Mavericks so Apple was able to keep the 1 GB of ram in place. With the 64 bit OS it's possible the next iPad's could get a spec bump but no one really knows.No one on this forum knows. Only Apple Forum members last year thought it would be offered, but, no and the year before that it was rumored it might, but again, no....
Agreed! I'm not used to my iPad crashing so much since moving over to Apple from PC. I know if there's a way for Apple to make 1 GB work with the 64bit processing, they will. But 2 GB would make the user experience so much better. Apple just need to do the right thing now. By this October, it will have been more than 2 years since the iPad 4 came out, and we cannot go with just 1 GB any longer.I think it is definitely time. With IOS7, more examples of low memory conditions have been reported and that also seems one of the biggest complaints with IOS users. With the switch to 64bit processing, the next logical step seems to be to increase the RAM.
That's exactly what's going to happen.What's going to happen if it does have 2GB of RAM and certain websites still crash safari or reload tabs? It could be the biggest human meltdown ever. Then, we can read thread after thread about how the Air should have 5 GB of RAM.
Grab yer favorite popcorn and blanket..... This is gonna be good....
You will not find any official documentation that shows anything for any upcoming Apple products.Is there any documentation that shows this? How do you know?
If a device has an A8 in it, it will have 2GB RAM. If it has an A7, it will have 1GB.
That's exactly what's going to happen.
No one knows. It's all speculative. But since we are moving to a 64bit architechture, AND if rumors are true about us getting an A8 chip next across the board the iPhone and iPads, then there is a very good to excellent change of us getting 2 GB of RAM.Is there any documentation that shows this? How do you know?
Quite possible http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=1722672It will probably be 2 GB of DDR4 RAM which will bring savings to battery life as well as giving the OS more overhead to scream performance.
