iPad storage capacities are a differentiator when making a purchase. Should we choose little storage capacity and low price? Will we reach the memory limit and therefore not rely on external or cloud storage?
Over the years, Apple has improved and expanded the different options available when it comes to storage space on the iPad. Where initially 16 GB was the basic memory, now we start from 64 GB or 128 GB in many models. But what happens with maximum storage capacity? What is the maximum capacity supported by iPad? This is the crux of the matter.
Apple will multiply the maximum memory available on the iPad by two
According to what user yeux1122 posted in a South Korean blog, information about which was reported in English-language media. 9to5MacThe next iPad Pro will come with a maximum storage capacity of 4 TB of memory. According to the leaker, this iPad model has local storage It will be the first iPad Pro to have an OLED displaywhich will be released “in early 2024,” as also reported by 9to5Mac.
This would be an increase that would double the current maximum memory capacity of iPads, which currently stands at 2TB. So, we’re talking about that in a tablet, we’ll have it More storage than some Mac models.
One of the best examples is the 24-inch iMac. Currently, this model can be configured in a memory range starting from 512GB and up to 2TB of storage. Or the case of a Mac mini with an M2 processor, which can be configured with up to 2TB of SSD storage.
This is what the iPad’s internal memory range looks like
Currently, without seeing new iPad models on the table, whether they are from the Pro range or not, Apple is distributing different ranges of internal storage. In the case of the 11-inch and 12.9-inch iPad Pro, they are as follows:
- 128 GB
- 256 GB
- 512 GB
- 1 TB
- 2 TB
If we look at the 5th generation iPad Air, we have the following range available:
For the 10th generation iPad, we have these memories:
In the case of the iPad mini, Apple offers:
If we were to choose the ninth generation iPad, which is the device with the basic specifications (and the price to match them), we have the following:
Having such a large storage capacity on the iPad Pro would make these devices more professional. With the integration of software like Final Cut or Logic Pro, managing large files has become a daily occurrence. Having peace of mind that we will be able to have everything we need in local memory can be a new incentive to buy, even for a more professional sector that uses the iPad as its main work device.
