Comment 64GB STORAGE, not MEMORY (Score 4, Insightful) 93

Both iPad models start with 64GB of memory and maxes out to 500GB at the high-end.

No they do not. They start with 64GB of STORAGE, going up to 512GB at the high-end. Not exactly surprising that an Apple user doesn't understand the difference.

None of the released specs state how much MEMORY they have, but the previous iPad Pro had 2GB so maybe they'll be couragous and go all the way to 4GB now.

Yep. This is perhaps the best advice you can give anyone who does wide-ranging support over diverse systems. If you're a phone jockey for a specific piece of software or something, they might be a bit less relevant, but if you're desktop/server/networking/everything support then the advice above will save you a ton of time and grief.

I would add that the 4th and final part would be the soft-skills to get the user to help you scope the issue without them getting angry ("Why are you doubting me?!") or frustrated ("I don't have time for this!") or embarrassed when they realize they kicked their network cable out of the wall... and that, my friends, is a life's work.

This woman replied that she thought it was gross of me to refer to the woman in my life using the term "My" which implied that she was a possession, not a human being.

If there was ever a time to roll your eyes and walk away, this would have been it. Regardless of how close a friend they were, do you really need that kind of idiocy in your life?
