According to scores produced by Geekbench tests run on the device, the new 15.5-inch iPad Pro packs RAM of 4GB. Not only the 10.5inch model, but also the 12.9-inch refreshed iPad Pro comes with a full 4GB of RAM, where as the predecessor model came with a 3GB.

The Geekbench score of 3915 for single core, and 9387 for multi-core tests are impressive, though, there is  little doubt that anyone carrying a new iPad Pro around will be pleased with its ability to churn through tasks.

You can look at a 10.5-inch iPad Pro teardown that iFixit provides a closer look at the tablet’s internal design. For the most part, the inside of a 10.5-inch iPad looks similar to the 9.7-inch model it replaced, with only a few minor differences.


While the Wi-Fi version, for instance, iFixit discovered some mysterious plastic blocks where the LTE antennas might be found in cellular models. It nevertheless speculates the blocks are there to add support to the display assembly.

What we find in the 10.5-inch iPad Pro, Apple has affixed the display cables down the center of the device, which puts them out of harm’s way when prying open the display, while the bracket is affixed with standard Phillips screws.


Although the teardown confirms the 10.5-inch model has 4GB of memory from Micron Technology, with flash storage by Toshiba, which is currently selling its NAND memory division that produces those chips.

iFixt awarded the 10.5-inch iPad Pro a very low repairabiliy score of 2 out of 10 due to Apple’s continuous use of strong adhesives for the display, logic board, speakers, ribbon, cables and other components.


But again, with iOS 11’s new focus on multitasking and additional capabilities built around it, it may appear that Apple has boosted the amount of memory available for its high-end iPad in order to make the experience more than enough smoother as possible.

10.5-inch iPad Pro benchmarks show 4GB RAM.
