    I guess since this video, it was discovered that the iPad doesn't use more than 5 GB of RAM in any application, no matter how much RAM is in it. At least for now.

    Hey (this question is for literally anybody that may be able answer this or has experience regarding this), I know months late to this party, but how bad/noticeable is the bloom/bleed on this? I’ve read some things were people were pretty disappointed (upset, even) with how bad the bloom was, but I also don’t know if those complaints are coming from people that just love to complain when things aren’t absolutely, unobtainable perfect (I mean, it’s no OLED so obviously bloom/bleed are going to exist). I’m just trying to figure out to what extent the bloom/bleed exists before I pull the trigger. Thanks!

    Ok guys... when you say that the M1 chip is powerful, what does it mean? That the apps don't crash? That all is fast and fluid? If it's only that, I still happy on my Galaxy J3, because all is super fast,fluid, and apps never, I say NEVER crash. Ok, It's only android 5,a 2K camera, 1,5gb ram and 8GB, but just buy the Galaxy M32: 6 Gb ram, 128gb, a 32 mp camera, a 4k video camera and all this for less than $200. If I'm wrong pls explain what is the power of M1 chip because I've BIG (2 gb) 3d games and the graphics and performance are excellent. Sorry for baaaad English Bip

      Performance is mostly something that people talk about for bragging rights, and doesn’t really reflect productivity (other than niche stuff like hardware video decoding or tensor accelerators for stuff like image recognition and computational photography). In the Apple world, it also means that the device will receive more updates theoretically

    And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire. (Revelation 20:15) The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that doeth good. The LORD looked down from heaven upon the children of men, to see if there were any that did understand, and seek God. They are all gone aside, they are all together become filthy: there is none that doeth good, no, not one. Have all the workers of iniquity no knowledge? who eat up my people as they eat bread, and call not upon the LORD. (Psalms 14:1-4)

The first ever ipad I messed with had to have been the ones in like 2010 or 12.. and that was the last I remembered of them cause we were poor and that pad was a friends I got to play with. I recently bought my own for to-go drawing and media creation to rep my shop n bruh.. I'm blown away with how much time has passed and how different the ipad pro looks and feels compared to it's beginning, I'm so excited. How can you not like a touch screen with a detachable keyboard and pretty camera!? AAA

    This is one way to obtain the latecomers into the ecosystem garden, showing how advance this world is. Which allows time for the larger macbooks or macs to be even greater than ever when really Apple would need to prioritise pushing their software to the extreme to make the hardware 'shocking'🙃
