Apple is all set to release a 128GB version of iPad 4, with a retina display, and not a new design altogether. A source from Apple is believed to have revealed that the new iPad model termed as ‘ULTIMATE’, is likely to feature both WiFi-only and WiFi + Cellular versions, and two colour options of white and black. The new iPad model, according to 9to5mac.com, is slated to be more of a premium SKU that will join the current line of 16GB, 32GB, and 64GB fourth-generation iPads. The Apple iPad 4 128GB version rumours come just a few weeks after speculations that a fifth generation tablet which would be thinner and lighter, is due in March.
It is also rumoured that Apple will offer 10-pack deals to educational institutions. However, the website does not completely claim that the new iPad model is the 128GB iPad. It is only checking the possibilities of the new iPad model being launched with more storage capacity owing to the recent findings of 128GB references in Apple’s recent iTunes 11 release. The website also points out to hints in the soon-to-be-released iOS 6.1 where developers have thought to have found code that indicates the arrival of 128GB iOS devices.
Apple is gearing up to launch the additional ‘ULTIMATE’ model, in other words, the tech giant is preparing to launch its highest capacity model iPad. Currently, the P101 and P103 are Apple’s internal nomenclature for the WiFi-only and Cellular-compatible fourth-generation iPads, respectively. These models come in 16GB, 32GB, and 64GB configurations. These storage configurations are termed as ‘Good’, ‘Better’, and ‘Best’. The latest addition is expected to exceed these capacities. The pricing information and detailed technical specifications of the upcoming model are not yet known.
