Apple super sizes the iPad, available in 128GB shortly
One complaint against the iPad was that the biggest size you could find was a mere 64GB, and how could you possibly fit all your music, movies, and those big games and apps on that size? To fix this, Apple will have a 128GB model.
Heading to Apple stores on February 5 in both the WiFi-only and WiFi/cellular models, the fourth-generation iPad can now be configured with a whopping 128GB storage, twice the current maximum.
It’s not technically an update per-se, but until the fifth generation model rolls around – likely either in March or September this year – it’s the newest iPad you’re going to find, and is easily one of the biggest native storage sizes we’ve seen in a tablet to date.
“With twice the storage capacity and an unparalleled selection of over 300,000 native iPad apps, enterprises, educators and artists have even more reasons to use iPad for all their business and personal needs,” said Philip Schiller, Apple’s Senior Vice President of Worldwide Marketing.
Next week will see the release of the 128GB iPad, with the WiFi only model coming in at $869 and the WiFi/cellular model hitting $1,009, up from the 64GB model which comes it at $759 and $899 for the respective variants.
