Apple has announced its biggest iPad ever in terms of storage almost doubling the capacity in an attempt to take on emerging competition from Microsoft Surface.
The Cupertino based company in a media release said a 128GB version of the fourth generation iPad with Retina display will be on sale soon. Currently the maximum capacity of an iPad is 64GB.
Microsoft is launching its Surface Pro tablet on February 9 and the device comes in 64GB and 128GB variations.
“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.
The 128GB iPad will come with both Wi-Fi and Wi-Fi + Cellular models.
The device will actually go on sale February 5, four days before the launch of Surface Pro and will come in two colours, black or white. The wifi only model will retail for $799 while the cellular model will be priced at $929.
