Apple has announced a 128GB version of its fourth-generation iPad, doubling the storage capacity from the previous 64GB maximum.
The fourth generation of iPad tablets was introduced in November last year. These devices have a 9.7-inch ‘Retina’ display and, unlike earlier models, run an Apple-designed A6X chip. In addition, the new iPad will be equipped with version 6.1 of the iOS operating system, which was released yesterday.
New 128GB iPads will go on sale next Tuesday, 5th February in the USA. UK pricing and availability hasn’t yet been announced.
Philip Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing, said “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. 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.”
