Apple unveiled the new iPad yesterday. Apple always makes a mystery about the RAM inside their new devices. The new iPad is rumored to have now 1GB RAM compared to 512MB found in the iPad 2.
The new iPad is available for pre-order since yesterday and will ship on March 16. The main feature highlights of the third generation iPad include Retina Display, Apple A5X CPU, 5MP camera and 4G LTE option.
Apple did not talk about the RAM configured in the new iPad. The Verge reports that sources claim that the new iPad has 1GB of RAM compared to the 512MB that the iPad 2 has. More RAM should help overall performance as more apps and tasks can be kept in RAM. The main driver for the increased RAM is likely the Retina Display and the adoption of higher resolution images in apps.
