The rumors have turned out to be true folks as Apple has announced the iPad 4th generation’s 128GB model. This is the first time Apple has released a 128GB version of any iOS device as previously the highest storage option was 64GB. Both Wi-Fi and 4G models of iPad 4 have received the upgrade and their 128GB models will be available for sale from February 5th.
As far as pricing is concerned the Wi-Fi only model will be available for $799 whereas the cellular model will sell for $929. While the 128GB model has been made available the 16, 32, and 64GB versions will still be available at same prices.
In the press release linked below Phil Shiller revealed that a total of 120 million have been sold worldwide. He made the following comments about he 128GB model of iPad 4.
“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.”
With iPad increasingly replacing laptops and cannibalizing laptop sales it is a wise decision from Apple as more space will make iPad even more useful. Lets hope iPhone 5S also gets released with 128GB storage option.
Now it would be interesting to see if Apple decides to kill the 16GB model of iPad or continue selling 4 separate storage options from now on.
