The new recommended retail pricing for the fourth generation iPad (iPad 4) is R5,299 for the Wi-Fi only model and R6,999 for the Wi-Fi + Cellular model.

Both models will only be available with 16GB of storage.

This is according to a press statement from Core Group, official distributor of Apple products in South Africa.

Core said that launch partners will include Apple Premium Resellers (iStore and Digicape), selected Apple Authorised Retailers and Apple Authorised Resellers.

The distributor highlighted that resellers are responsible for determining their own prices for the resale of products.

“Although Core Group may suggest retail prices, these are suggestions only and the reseller is entirely free to determine the actual prices at which products will be sold,” the statement said.

Apple announced on Thursday, 18 March 2014 that it was replacing the iPad 2 with the “iPad with Retina” – the fourth generation iPad.

It features a 9.7-inch Retina display, the Apple-designed A6X chip, 5MP rear camera, a FaceTime HD front-facing camera, and support for a number of LTE carriers (including Vodacom in South Africa).

According to Apple, the new iPad 4 will come installed with the latest version of Apple’s mobile operating system, iOS 7.
