You know what, it actually could be the reason. I heard that apple before didn’t let devs use all the ram, but in an update they changed that and now they can request to use all 8/16GB ram or something 🤷🏽♂️
I bought my iPad with the M1 chip for school. I don’t think apple designed this tablet with the intention of gaming in mind. I wouldn’t recommend doing flights with any apple device using 60fps you’ll kill your overall lithium battery health. I don’t think it has to do with infinite flight if you play other games at 60fps it’ll probably lag too. It’s an optimization issue with M1 rendering games launched before M1 was a thing. I think it is fixable with an iOS update.
Yes iPadOS 15 should allow more than 5 GB RAM.
It’s a new entitlement where an application could inform the system that its basic functionalities could be improved with more memory.
But without warranties to be allowed by iPadOS. And the application has to work well with the 5 GB. And no over use of this function.
For example, you are LumaFusion, a video editor for iPad. You are already adapted to this gorgeous iPad Pro M1. You can already mix 6 4K 60 IPS HDR videos and 6 sound tracks more with the 5 GB. You could ask more memory to improve the export speed, just the time to compute it… [edit September the 16th] Apple will allow an application to use more then 5 Gb RAM on M1 iPad. Just for a short need. 6 GB RAM on iPad Pro M1 8 GB, and 12 GB RAM on iPad Pro M1 16 GB. But for a very short moment to temporarily boost a functionality.
You’re right. But I doubt this lag issue has to do anything with ram. This conversation took a wrong turn. The issue was with wether infinite flight is using the high performance cores or the low performance cores of the M1 chip. I can’t imagine M1 which blazes through everything, getting stumped by infinite flight.
Besides the small hiccups (which are strange for M1 chip), it’s a buttery smooth experience on the highest settings. You get to see tons of aircraft, with 3D scenery, 60 fps, and high texture quality. It’s fantastic. Just need to get this 2-3 second lag on final approach and we’re in for an amazing experience with the M1 and future M iPads.
