Apple's new 12.9-inch iPad Pro has 4GB of RAM, doubling iPad Air 2. By: Roger Fingas Thursday, September 10, 2015 10:28 AM Apple's new iPad Pro may have 4 gigabytes of RAM, the most ever for an iOS device, Adobe inadvertently revealed in a press release, which has since been edited to remove the claim.

Apple's new 12.9-inch iPad Pro has 4GB of RAM, doubling iPad Air 2

The release previously stated that the Pro is "great for creative workflows with a high res 12.9" touch screen display at 2732 x 2048 pixels, A9X chip, and 4GB RAM," G for Games noted on Thursday. A later check showed however that Adobe edited the sentence to strip out references to both RAM and the A9X. The latter is a major marketing point for the tablet, but Apple typically avoids disclosing how much RAM it uses in mobile devices. Four gigabytes would be the most RAM in any iOS device to date, double the amount in the iPad Air 2. App Store sur Twitter : "Live from San Francisco. Watch the keynote now only on #AppleEvent...

Verizon to begin testing its super speedy 5G network in 2016

Verizon has confirmed plans to begin testing the first super speedy 5G network in the U.S. next year. Its new service will have 50 times the throughput of existing 4G LTE networks, and Verizon is working with a number of partners, including Samsung, to accelerate its development. “By nearly all accounts, 5G technology should be introduced in the U.S. sometime after 2020, but Verizon is accelerating the expected rate of innovation,” the carrier announced today. “By working closely with key partners, Verizon aims to launch field technology trials next year.” Verizon’s initial plan is to create 5G “sandboxes” at its Waltham, Massachusetts, and San Francisco Innovation Centers that will allow it to trial 5G networks before making them available to the public.

Comparison: Apple Music vs. Google Play Music All Access

All Access was initially priced at $9.99, but in June of 2015, Google unsurprisingly unveiled an ad-supported, free version to differentiate itself from Apple's subscription Music service. Designed to compete directly with other streaming services such as Spotify, Rdio and newcomer Apple Music, All Access is based on Songza, the human-curated music streaming startup acquired by Google last year. The most striking difference between Google Play Music All Access and Apple Music (apart from the incredibly verbose name) is the user interface, though music curation and discovery services come in at a close second.
