Apple is launching its 128GB version of the 4th generation iPad boasting Retina Display. It comes both in Wi-Fi and Wi-Fi + Cellular models. On February 5, 2013, it will be available in black and white colors at Apple online, Apple retail and Apple authorized resellers.
The new 128 iPad is designed to satisfy all users’ demands concerning greater storage. According to some details revealed in the press release, the new model will be perfect for creative professionals, enterprise users and medical industry specialists. Users now have more reasons to apply iPad to their personal and business purposes.
Apple also includes testimonial citations from professional audio company WaveMachine Labs, AutoCad VP and professional sports analytics company Global Apptitude. It is a good tactics to aim this at that kind of customers, while due to the high price tag the number of potential consumers may be quite limited. Apple is expected to make more money on this particular stock-keeping unit as the company’s profits generally increase with the storage capacity going up on iOS devices.
In fact, such a mid-cycle capacity bump is quite unusual for Apple while its iOS devices get extensive hardware improvements roughly once a year. However, being updated in October, 2012, the device may not see another major upgrade for at least another half a year.
Frankly speaking, it’s a quite rear phenomenon when rumors about Apple’s plans hit the websites and then turn out to be confirmed in such a short period of time.
