2020 iPad Pro

Code found in the Golden Master release of iOS 13.4 points to Apple shipping its entire 2020 iPad Pro lineup with 6GB RAM. This is in contrast to the 2018 iPad Pro lineup in which only the 1TB variants packed 6GB RAM, while lower storage variants had 4GB RAM.

The additional RAM should help the iPad Pro offer better multitasking performance and make it future proof. This year, Apple is offering the iPad Pro lineup with 128GB, 256GB, 512GB, and 1T of storage space. You can read this comparison to know about all the other differences between the 2020 iPad Pro and the 2018 iPad Pro.

Interestingly, code in iOS 13.4 also points to Apple including its ultra-wideband U1 chip on the iPad Pro lineup. However, the company’s official spec sheet does not mention anything about the U1 chip. It is unclear if Apple has deactivated the chip inside the iPad Pro and plans to enable it later on via a software update or if the code is just an oversight on its part.

Additionally, Apple has included faster Wi-Fi 6 connectivity on the 2020 iPad Pro lineup. In the spec sheet, Apple claims the iPad Pro lineup offers speeds of up to 1.2Gbps — up from 866Mbps of the previous-generation iPad Pro. They also support Citizen Broadband Radio Service (CBRS). So far, Apple has only included Wi-Fi 6 connectivity on its iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro lineup. It did not include the faster Wi-Fi connectivity option on its 16-inch MacBook Pro refresh last year or on the 2020 MacBook Air refresh.

What are your thoughts on the 2020 iPad Pro coming with 6GB RAM by default? Do you think it will help with your workflow?
