Apple announced a 128GB version of the fourth generation iPad with Retina display (iPad 4) in a press statement today (29 January 2013).

According to Apple, companies that regularly use large amounts of data such as 3D CAD files, X-rays, film edits, music tracks, project blueprints, training videos, and service manuals all benefit from having a greater choice of storage options for iPad.

The iPad 4 features a 9.7-inch Retina display, runs on Apple’s A6X chip, and boasts LTE support for the bands used in South Africa.

A recent update to Apple’s mobile operating system, iOS, introduced LTE support for 36 carriers around the world including Vodacom. However, Vodacom is not listed as a supported operator on Apple’s website.

The new 128GB versions of the fourth generation iPad will be available in black or white starting Tuesday, 5 February 2013, Apple announced.

A Wi-Fi only 128GB iPad 4 is set to cost $799 (US, excluding taxes) while the model with mobile data support has a suggested price of $929, Apple said.
