Latest iPad Rumors: Finally, More RAM for the Next-Gen iPad Air

LG-G3This week’s big iPad rumor is all about an important predicted spec upgrade for the next-gen iPad Air – a bump up to 2GB of RAM, as 9to5Mac reports:

A new report from Asian site TechNews.tw claims information from the Apply supply chain points to the next generation iPad Air doubling up on RAM from 1GB to 2GB

If this rumor is accurate that would be good news, though not great news I’d say. Great news would be 3GB of RAM or more for the top-end of the iPad line.

RAM has been the weakest spec detail on the iPad for years now, and it lags well behind some rivals. Heck, it even lags way behind the LG G3 phone that I carry – which has triple the amount of RAM of the current iPad Air. And a number of other leading smartphones offer double and triple the amount of RAM of the iPad.

I’ve been complaining about this ‘feature’ of the iPad for years, and I really wish Apple would give some serious new love to this memory spec of the iPad lineup.

If this latest rumor is right though, it doesn’t sound promising in this area, since it also speculates that the next-gen iPad mini will still offer just 1GB of RAM.
