Since Apple's spectacular presentations do not include any information about the memory of its new products, these important technical specs of the new iPad mini 6 and the budget 2021 iPad have just been made public the day after Apple's California Streaming event.

To the surprise of many Apple fans, at yesterday's California Streaming event the Cupertino-based company has not only officially announced the iPhone 13 (Pro Max) and the Apple Watch Series 7, but has also unveiled a significantly upgraded iPad mini 6 as well as a smaller 2021 refresh of the budget iPad with a 10.2-inch display.

But since Apple does not communicate all technical specifications of its new products, it was not known how much memory the two new iPads will be equipped with. A report by MacRumors has now shed light on this topic. The iPad mini 6, which is also equipped with Apple's A15 Bionic chip and an USB-C port, will reportedly feature 4GB of RAM. That is a 1GB increase from the previous iPad mini, which means that Apple's smallest tablet will be better suited for multitasking in the future.

Apple's more affordable 10.2-inch iPad on the other hand only received a smaller CPU upgrade to the A13 Bionic SoC, and in terms of memory there will be no improvement in comparison to its predecessor. However, 3GB of RAM should be plenty enough for regular usage. In comparison, the current iPad Pro (from US$849 on Amazon) is equipped with up to 16GB of RAM for professional use, but it also costs a lot more than the budget iPad, which is intended for everyday use cases and students.

My fascination for technology goes back a long way to the Pentium II era. Modding, overclocking and treasuring computer hardware has since become an integral part of my life. As a student, I further developed a keen interest in mobile technologies that can make the stressful college life so much easier. After I fell in love with the creation of digital content while working in a marketing position, I now scour the web to bring you the most exciting topics in the world of tech. Outside the office, I’m particularly passionate about motorsports and mountain biking.
