Apple has announced the launch of its next iPad which will boast double the storage capacity of their current largest model. But the 128GB iPad doesn’t come cheap…


128GB iPad

The fourth-generation  iPad will have a capacity of 128GB, considerably more than the current version and will go on sale from Monday.

Philip Schiller, Apple's senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing said:

"With more than 120 million iPads sold, it's clear that customers around the world love their iPads, and everyday they are finding more great reasons to work, learn and play on their iPads rather than their old PCs. 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."

Unfortunately the 128GB iPad will be priced at £639 ($799) for the cheapest version and £739 (929) for the Wi-Fi touting, 3G spouting version (a MacBook Air costs only £110 more).

One user on the technology forum Macrumors.com, Kcamfork, wrote:

“I’m glad there are options. But these prices are getting ridiculous for simply more storage.”

And Nia820 wrote on the same website:

“Will be skipping this. I can buy a decent laptop with that money.”

Apple’s new 128GB iPad will have to compete against existing Samsung models as well as Microsoft’s Surface Pro tablet with 128GB.
