Apple added a new member to its iPad line on Tuesday, offering a 9.7-inch Retina iPad with 128 gigabytes of storage — doubling the tablet’s previous maximum capacity.
Everything else about Apple’s tablet is the same, including the dual-core A6X processor, 2 gigabtyes of RAM, and 10 hours of battery life.
To account for the added storage space, the 128 GB Wi-Fi model will now cost $799 (#128,000), while the LTE model will cost $929 (#149,00).
To offer some differentiation from its other iPads — which start at $329 for the iPad mini — Apple is targeting the new model primarily at professional users, including those in the architectural and medical fields who handle large files. Gamers, movie fans and avid magazine readers are also likely to appreciate the extra storage space.
The 128 GB iPad will be available starting on Tuesday, February 5.
