That was quick. The rumor just broke over the weekend, and today Apple has announced that they will begin selling a new version of the fourth generation iPad with 128GB memory on February 5. Other than the additional memory, this new iPad is identical to the current fourth generation iPad. The price of the WiFi-only model will be $799, and the model with cellular data will be $929.
“With more than 120 million iPads sold, it’s clear that customers around the world love their iPads, and every day 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, in the press release. “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.”
The press release outlines all the ways the iPad is being deployed in the enterprise, and suggests that the additional memory will help support these uses.
