What you need to know
- Apple's upcoming iPad Air features 4GB of RAM.
- The exact amount was identified in a new Geekbench 5 score.
- This marks a 1GB jump over the previous generation of iPad Air.
Over the weekend, it was reported that Apple new A14 chip posted impressive performance boosts over the previous generation. The new benchmarks showed that the new iPad Air 4, which has yet to be released, will be at least forty percent faster than its predecessor.
As the previous benchmark reports shows, however, the amount of RAM in the iPad plays only one part in determining overall performance. Apple's new A14 chip, as shown in the scores, is the driving force behind the new iPad Air 4's 40% jump in performance compared to the previous model.
Apple says that the new iPad Air 4 will launch to customers in October, but the tablet is still missing an exact release date. The release does seem imminent, however, as stores have begun to receive marketing materials for the new device.
