Apple Planning Launch of Updated iPad with 128GB of Storage?
Un-named sources told 9to5Mac that the new iPad will be a premium model priced at around $799 for the Wi-Fi model, and $929 for the Wi-Fi + Cellular version. Other than the price, it's unclear what will be different about the newest SKU versus existing fourth generation iPads, though there's a good possibility it will ship with 128GB of onboard storage, twice as much as the current flagship model at 64GB. If that's the case, here's what Apple's 9.7-inch iPad lineup will look like:
- 16GB Wi-Fi / Wi-Fi + Cellular: $499 / $629
- 32GB Wi-Fi / Wi-Fi + Cellular:: $599 / $729
- 64GB Wi-Fi / Wi-Fi + Cellular: $699 / $829
- 128GB Wi-Fi / Wi-Fi + Cellular: $799 / $929
A 128GB iPad has already been hinted at in pre-release iOS 6.1 code, which holds references to 128GB iOS devices. There have also been 128GB references in Apple's iTunes 11 software.
