iOS and iPadOS developers will now be able to exceed RAM limits on supported devices, Apple notes in a support document (via MacRumors).
Last month, it emerged that even apps running on the mighty M1-powered iPad Pro 2021 weren’t able to access more than 5GB of RAM. That created quite a ruckus in the tech community, highlighting yet again that the iPad hardware is perhaps limited by software.
Apple has always imposed RAM limits but they have become more pronounced with this year’s iPad Pros. The 1TB and 2TB models boast the highest RAM ever in an iPad – 16GB.
