Apple has announced a 128 GB version of the 4th 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.
Other than the huge storage boost, the device retains all the features of the 4th generation iPad, including a gorgeous 9.7-inch Retina display, Apple-designed A6X chip, FaceTime HD camera, iOS 6.1 and ultrafast wireless performance.
According to Philip Schiller, Apple’s senior president for worldwide marketing, increasingly people are relying on their tablets for both work and play and the massive 128GB onboard storage will certainly allow any user to either be more productive by storing and transferring huge work files, data sets, or enjoy entertainment on the go with ever more multimedia content available at one’s fingertips. The many professionals in the design, engineering and multimedia editing field are just some of the users who’ll find this huge storage invaluable in their line of work.

The new 128GB versions of the fourth generation iPad will be available starting Tuesday, February 5, in black or white, for a suggested retail price of $799 (US) for the iPad with Wi-Fi model and $929 (US) for the iPad with Wi-Fi + Cellular model.
