Apple to reportedly double 'iPad 3' RAM to 1GB
A hacker and iPhone jailbreaker known as "Chronic" suggests that Apple will increase the RAM in its upcoming iPad model. Leaked debug photos purportedly from Apple's third-generation iPad show that the device will sport 1GB of RAM, double the amount of its predecessor iPad 2 that carries 512MB of RAM, the same amount as the iPhone 4.
Leaked debug photos allegedly of Apple's next iPad that surfaced last month showed a line of code that read "vm_page_bootstrap: 244276 free pages and 8396 wired pages." By multiplying the number of free pages by the size of a page (4,096 bytes), the developer deduced that the device would have 1GB of RAM.
"Chronic" also reported earlier on Tuesday that the golden master build of iOS 5.1 has passed Apple's internal quality assurance testing and is set to arrive soon with the addition of two secret features.
Speculation surrounding the next-generation iPad claim that the so-called "iPad 3" will likely boast a 2,048 x 1,536 pixel display, a faster processor, a quad-core A6 chip or an A5X dual-core chip, and 4G LTE. Some reports have also claimed that Apple will set aside its current numbering system and call the new device the "iPad HD."
