Apple lifted the veil yesterday on iPad Pro (2020), its brand new range of professional touch tablets. The firm has chosen to place the cursor on their photo capabilities or on their new cover and it has of course put aside all the more technical part.
However, in parallel, Apple has also deployed iOS 13.4 GM and it seems that the platform is a little more talkative.
9to5 Mac has indeed had the opportunity to delve into its system files, which has enabled them to make surprising discoveries concerning the new iPad Pro.
The iPad Pro (2020) will be entitled to a little more RAM
Based on the source code of iOS 13.4 GM, therefore, our colleagues learned that the new iPad Pro were all – absolutely all – equipped with 6 GB of RAM.
This detail is important. In the older generation, only models equipped with 1 TB of storage offered as much RAM and the others thus confined themselves to 4 GB of RAM. The iPad Pro (2020) therefore gain 2 GB of RAM, which will probably not be too much for the most demanding applications and titles.
That’s not all. 9To5 Mac has also found several references alluding to the presence of a U1 chip on board the brand’s new professional tablets.
A bonus U1 chip?
Introduced with the iPhone 11, this chip improves signal stability using ultra-wideband signals. So it seems that the iPad Pro (2020) can also benefit from it, even if it has not been officially announced by the firm.
If these new features are interesting, they are still much less than the innovations made to the rear photo module of the tablets. Not content with carrying two sensors and offering two different focal lengths (wide angle and ultra wide angle), the latter also includes a LiDAR scanner which should have many applications in augmented reality.
