Apple unveiled its sixth-generation iPad mini at a midnight event on the 15th.
It is the successor model for the first time in two years starting with the fifth generation launched in 2019, the bezel has been narrowed and redesigned to a full screen design, Touch ID has been integrated into the power button on the top, the external port has become USB-C, it has evolved as a “little fourth-generation iPad Air”, including support for the second-generation Apple Pencil.
A clue was found indicating that the 6th generation iPad mini has 4GB of RAM.
The new iPad mini should have the same A15 Bionic chip as the iPhone 13 seriesIt is known from the specification table.However, for some reason it was not mentioned during the event on the 15th.
Perhaps it is desirable for Apple to announce the latest A15 chip at the same time as the main iPhone 13 product, and it is presumed that it was a mistake to present it as an accessory with the sixth-generation iPad mini that was previously announced. .
Other than that, Apple has a practice of not disclosing the amount of RAM installed in the device, and that is no different for this new product line.
However, according to MacRumors of the United States, a character string was found indicating that the installed RAM of the 6th generation iPad mini is 4GB in the beta version of Xcode 13 of the genuine Apple developer tool. the predecessor3GB 5th generation iPad miniIt means that it has been increased by 1GB.
On the other hand,9th generation iPad announced at the same timeThe built-in RAM is confirmed to be the same 3GB as the 8th gen. It may have been judged that it is enough to change the SoC from the older A12 to the A13 and strengthen the front camera.
By the way, the RAM installed in the latest iPad Pro is2 types of 8GB or 16GB depending on the storage capacityThere are,The fourth generation iPad Air is 4GBIt can be said that the new iPad mini is a “smaller Air”.
Xcode uses only original Apple tools to provide the RAM capacity of Apple products like the iPhone 12 series in the past.We have a history of hitting with precision.. In the future, I would like to look forward to reliable support through disassembly by iFixit repair company and documents sent to regulatory agencies in each country.
