I am thinking of retireeing my Ipad Pro 12,9 from 2018.
But I´m stuck between going for the 8GB ram version (256GB and 5g) or the 1TB 16GB ram with 5G.
Not sure if the extra 1000!! Dollars is worth it. But I do want to future proof myself.
Have anyone experienced memory issues on the 8GB M1/M2 version? And why can´t just the ipad Pro have 16GB as base and 24GB ram in the top models
I think you should wait for the next iPad Pro. Because the new M2 iPad Pro is almost the same as the M1 iPad Pro, only some features like Apple Pencil hover, pro res video capture and performance are added to the M2 iPad.
That was the same case for me. I had an iPad Pro 9.7” 2016 model . It was lagging way too much. So I bough the M2 IPad and it runs buttery smooth.
I bought the m1 ipad pro 8g and works great most of the time. Extruding text, especially cursive like in the pic uses 90-100% of the ipads memory and visualisation mode also does the same.
The text is only 50cm across (a small signboard) but it maxes out the memory and you have to wait a few seconds as it processes which is a bit annoying.
A coral reef drawing in visualisation mode (with over 7000 objects) uses the same or less memory on the iPad. I would have thought the text should be much simpler to process.
I have an app i use that can monitor resource usage and interesting to watch in in split screen when
Working in Shapr3d
If i had the choice now, i would go with 16gb ram as i do lots of text in my drawings.
