Apple Launches 128 GB Retina iPad
Apple announced today a new version of its 4th-generation Retina iPad with an increased capacity of 128 GB. Starting this Tuesday (February 5), the 128 GB iPad will be available in two colors (black and white) at $799 for the WiFi model and $929 for the WiFi + Cellular model.
Apple's Phil Schiller was quoted in the press release:
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,” said Philip Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing. “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.
In the same press release, Apple also included quotes from third-party developers such as AutoCAD. Apple included the same numbers they shared yesterday in regards to the App Store: more than 800,000 apps are available, with 300,000 made for the iPad. According to Apple, iPad "also supports the more than 5,000 newspapers and magazines offered in Newsstand, and the more than 1.5 million books available on the iBookstore" -- the same numbers the company announced in October 2012 for the release of the iPad mini.
