The 4th generation iPad model could launch with a 128GB of internal memory.
Tech analysts came to this conclusion after four new high-end iPad configurations appeared in a U.S. retailer's database.
The exact identity of the four devices is not identified in the database, but these "ultimate" devices could represent configurations of the 4th generation iPad model with more memory than 64GB. They could be 128GB models of the Wi-Fi and Wi-Fi+ Cellular iPad in both black and white.
The codenames for these new iPads were P101 and P103. Apple normally uses words to categorize it's the amount of internal memory featured on its devices. The 16GB is labeled "good," the 32GB is labeled "better," and the 64GB model is labeled "best." "Ultimate" could be the new name for a 128GB model.
No other information is currently available for these iPads. There is a possibility that they could be launching sometime this year.
The iPad 5 release date will be in October, according to a new report, which offers new details into the eagerly awaited next generation Apple tablet.
iLounge's Jeremy Horowitz filed a new report which stated that he has inspected what he believes to be the shell designed for the fifth-generation iPad. He also said that the new iPad will adopt many of the features currently seen on the iPad Mini.
"What does it look like? Well, it's a lot smaller than one would guess possible: in portrait orientation, picture 9.7" screen with virtually no left or right bezels, and only enough space above and below the screen to accommodate the mandatory camera and Home button elements," said Horowitz describing the device.
The report also states that since the upcoming iPad is so much smaller and thinner than the 4th generation model, it must have a completely redesigned interior. Viewing the shell led Horowitz to believe that Apple might be using IGZO panels and smaller chip components for its new device.
