Apple has officially revealed the latest iPad 4 with 128GB storage capacity priced at $869 for the WiFi version while the cellular version starts at $1009. Both versions will be available at Australian Apple stores but the date has not yet been confirmed.
According to the technology giant, the increase in storage capacity is aimed at device users who have bulky data files needed to be stored like CAD files, X-ray files, film edits, music tracks, project blueprints, training videos and service manuals. In a statement released, Apple confirmed that the iPad4 will still have the same Retina display found on the existing iPad 4 models.
Apple claimed that there are over 10 million users of applications such as iWork, Global Apptitude, Auria and AutoCAD. An iPad4 with more storage capacity would be suitable for these device users. For instance, AutoCAD WS app for iOS often create large and very detailed files but the iPad 4 128GB can allow users to store, view, edit and even share their AutoCAD files.
"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," Philip Schiller, Apple's Senior Vice President of Worldwide Marketing, stated in the media release today.
