Apple Officially Announces 128GB iPad 4

Apple has officially announced a new iPad boasting 128GB of internal storage,  the most it has ever offered on an iDevice.

The 128GB model has the same  specs as the fourth generation iPad that was released  last October, and comes in WiFi-only or WiFi + 3G/4G connectivity.

It offers twice the storage of the previous top-end 64GB model, enabling users  to hold even more photos, files, documents, apps, music, TV shows or books.

The 128GB iPad 4 will be available from 5th February in black or white,  priced in the US at $799 (£639) for the WiFi model and $929 (£739) for the WiFi  + cellular version. It will be sold at Apple Online Store, Apple retail stores  and select Apple Authorized Resellers.

“With more than 120 million iPads sold, it’s clear that customers around the world love their iPads, and everyday  they are finding more great reasons to work, learn and play on their iPads rather than their old PCs,” said Philip Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president  of worldwide marketing.

“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.”

The fourth generation iPad has a 9.7-inch Retina  display, Apple-designed A6X chip, FaceTime HD camera, and runs the new iOS 6.1  operating system, which rolled  out last night.

Apple said that many businesses and corporations are  now utilising the iPad to improve productivity, including “virtually all” of the  Fortune 500 and over 85% of the Global 500 claimed to be “currently deploying or  testing iPad”.

The firm feels that as people are increasingly using  iPads for tasks that involve a large amount of data, such as processing 3D CAD  files, X-rays, film edits, music tracks, or project blueprints, the bump in iPad  storage to 128GB is needed.

However, the manner of the announcement is  highly unusual for Apple, as the firm typically makes major product  introductions at blockbuster launch events led by its chief executive Tim Cook.

Interestingly, though, the 128GB iPad 4 is announced just ahead of the launch  of Microsoft’s new Surface Pro tablets, which run the full version of  Windows 8 and have storage up to 128GB.
