Apple rarely plays the specs game, particularly when it comes to its iOS devices. Sure, you’ll get a name for the processor and they’ll boast about pixels when it suits them, but talk about RAM or clock speed and there’s radio silence. However, according to one source, the iPad’s dirty little secret is its ever-increasing RAM usage.
Now that we’re officially entrenched in the "post-PC" recvolution, we can officially say goodbye to megahertz (and the myths that go along with them) forever.

Blasting through a series of product updates and announcements this morning in San Francisco, Apple CEO Tim Cook wasted no time cutting to the chase by announcing what we all wanted to hear: “The new iPad.”

Here's a recap of what we think we know. After all, nothing you hear counts until it's confirmed during a keynote.
