Applications can use the system memory of the new iPad Pro to a limited extent

With the current software options, the 16GB model is not very worth a look.


Apple launched the M1 system chip last month iPad Pro models. These are available in a number of configurations, but you can choose between 8 or 16 GB in terms of system memory.

The hardware seems strong enough for the tablet field, but Lucky Clan, developer of Artstudio Pro drawing software he wrote about it on the Procreate forumthat this doesn’t really mean too much, as apps can only access 5GB of system memory so far. If you try to allocate more, the program will crash.

It is not yet known whether this is due to the underdevelopment of the operating system, or whether Apple will artificially impose a restriction to avoid having applications that require a lot of system memory within their store. However, in terms of current performance, the 16GB model is of little use unless the user is working with multiple memory-intensive programs at once, but the benefits are questionable here as well.
