Wondered how much RAM there is inside the new iPad Pros? Obviously, that’s not the kind of information you’ll get from Apple, because it doesn’t discuss tablets and phones like it does computers. However, there are ways to establish the missing pieces in iOS devices’ hardware spec sheets. One approach is GeekBench, the popular benchmark test which profiles phones and spills the beans on their hardware makeup.

The 10.5-inch and 12.9-inch iPad Pros were taken through GeekBench and came out as 4GB RAM devices. In combination with the A10X processor, the tablets represent probably …

2017 Apple iPhone units might lag compared to rival handsets

It would appear as though Apple’s 2017 iPhones are going to have connectivity speeds lagging behind competing handsets.

Qualcomm can sell to Apple right now a modem that will support 1 Gb/sec data speeds. While Intel is working on a modem with similar capabilities, it won’t be ready for the next iPhone models, which are expected to be unveiled in September.
