iPad Air, apple, RAM, boost, macworld australiaApple’s second generation Retina iPad Air may be getting a RAM boost from it’s predecessor according to Taiwanese news website TechNews.

The new iPad Air allegedly features 2GB RAM, up from the 1GB featured in the previous generation.

The upgraded specs of the iPad Air means it has the same amount of memory that came with the recent Google Nexus 7 tablet which was released about a year ago.

With the iPad Air expected to feature an iOS 8-enbled split-screen for multitasking, the upgrade from “miserably wimpy RAM” is a welcome rumour.

Apple seems to be steadily working towards multifaceted iPads after Apple CEO Tim Cook shared that 80 percent of his work duties are accomplished using the iPad.

The Apple tablet is also expected to boast a Touch ID fingerprint scanner to let users make mobile payments over the device, more recessed buttons on side of the device and an 64-bit A8 CPU.

The second generation Retina iPad mini is still expected to feature 1GB RAM.

Both iPad’s are rumoured to be unveiled during Apple’s spring released which is likely to include the iPhone 6.
