(TS) – Apple® has announced a 128GB* version of the fourth generation iPad® with Retina® display. The 128GB iPad with Wi-Fi and iPad with Wi-Fi + Cellular models provide twice the storage capacity of the 64GB models to hold even more valuable content including photos, documents, projects, presentations, books, movies, TV shows, music and apps.
As somebody who tends to buy the largest capacity of device, I am excited by the news, if a little surprised. When Apple pushed its iDevice range up to a maximum of 64GB, I thought the progression to 128GB would be a matter of formality, but with strong emphasis on selling its iCloud service post-iOS 5, it began to look as though 64GB would be the limitation. With other companies sniffing around for a slice of the fruit company’s market share, though, it would appear Tim Cook and his troops want to issue a reminder to the tech community, and what better way to do so than offering a great deal more storage space than any other mainstream slab on the market?
With the iPad now running all the way up to 128GB, it will be intriguing to see if the iPhone follows suit. The Cupertino’s market-leading tablet certainly benefits more from the larger capacity (larger apps, more likely to run HD video, and so forth), but seldom is a feature implemented on one and not the other. This release will surely prompt some iPhone users to call for more space, but for the time being, the company’s iconic slab is the only iOS device to reach these dizzy new heights.
