Apple officially unveiled its all-new iPad Pro during the “Spring Loaded” event. For the first time, the company highlights RAM differences between iPad models.

The 2021 11-inch and 12.9-inch iPad Pro feature the 8-core CPU and 8-core GPU M1 chip, and a new Thunderbolt connector (over the same USB-C port). The larger 12.9-inch model also sports a new mini-LED screen, which Apple calls “Liquid Retina XDR.”

The company also introduced a new storage option with up to 2TB. With that, Apple officially highlights the amount of RAM each iPad can have:

  • 128GB with 8GB of RAM
  • 256GB with 8GB of RAM
  • 512GB with 8GB of RAM
  • 1TB with 16GB of RAM
  • 2TB with 16GB of RAM

Apple already did the same thing with last year’s model, but without telling users there was a difference between the 1TB iPad Pro and the other models with lower storage capacity.

The new iPad Pro will be available to pre-order on April 30 and start shipping in the second half of May.
