Apple announced in a press release Tuesday that it will now offer a 128GB version of the fourth generation iPad with Retina display.
Noting a growing popularity of iPads over PCs among consumers, Philip Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing made it seem like it was a natural decision for the technology company to expand the storage capacity of this product, saying:
“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.”
Three app developers offered their testimonials in the press release on how the iPad had greatly enhanced the quality of their apps: Autodesk Inc. (AutoCAD WS, a productivity app that allows users to view and edit their AutoCAD designs), WaveMachine Labs (Auria, an audio recording and editing app) and Global Apptitude (GamePlan, an app that allows athletes to view and study game film.).
Other features of the fourth generation iPad with Retina display include: a FaceTime HD camera, a 9.7-inch display and iOS 6.1.
The new 128GB fourth generation iPad will be available starting Feb. 5 starting at $799 for an iPad with Wi-Fi and $929 for an iPad with Wi-Fi and Cellular.
