Update: Adobe has now removed the reference to the 4GB RAM. Hopefully because they weren’t supposed to reveal that rather than because it’s not true.

There’s apparent good news for anyone tempted by the multi-tasking capabilities of the iPad Pro: an Adobe press release has seemingly revealed that it has 4GB RAM – a doubling of the 2GB in the iPad Air 2.

iPad Pro is great for creative workflows with a high res 12.9″ touch screen display at 2732 x 2048 pixels, A9X chip, and 4GB RAM … 

Apple is not noted for its generosity when it comes to RAM, even the iPhone 6 having just 1GB (though the new Apple TV got 2GB, and there is chatter that the iPhone 6S may have the same). Apple would argue that because hardware and operating system are deeply integrated, it can make more efficient use of a smaller amount.

It’s likely the fact that Apple is heavily pushing the multi-tasking capabilities of the iPad Pro that has driven the decision to opt for 4GB for the Pro. Photoshop Fix was demonstrated during the keynote, and is designed to allow easy retouching of images on the go.
