As rumored, Apple announced a new model of the iPad fourth-generation today, which has 128GB of storage, doubling that of the 64GB model which had previously been the highest capacity available. The addition of 128GB is the only thing new as everything else is the same as the current iPad 4 and this is still considered the 4th-generation iPad. The 16GB, 32GB, and 64GB models are still available for purchase and haven’t been discontinued.
This is a big announcement and allows the iPad 4 to more easily compete with the Microsoft Surface Pro which has 128GB of storage (despite it actually have only 83GB of user accessible storage). The new storage model is also a more viable option for those that use iPad for content creation, as a computer, for businesses, and more.
The 128GB iPad will be available on February 5th and will retail for $799 for the WiFi only model and $929 for the WiFi + Cellular model.
