When the iPad launched more than 10 years ago, John Gruber wrote a lengthy piece on Daring Fireball. In his opionon, the 256 MB of RAM were the biggest hardware weakness of the device.
imagine what Apple could put in an iPad that cost as much as a MacBook Pro. (My dream iPad Pro: double the display’s pixel resolution and include a gigabyte or two of RAM.)
A few years later, Apple seems to have listened to him: Every iPad Pro has twice the pixel density — 264 ppi compared to 132 ppi — and at least four times the pixels of the first iPad. Oh, and of course, the iPad Pro also has at least two gigabyte of RAM.
What a coincidence.
