Hot on the heels of the discovery of code reference in iOS 6.1 beta, which hinted at 128GB iOS devices, 9to5Mac is reporting that according to their sources, Apple may be gearing up to launch 128GB versions of the iPad.
According to 9to5Mac’s sources, it is most likely a 128GB version of the 4th generation iPad. According to the new SKUs provided by their source, the ‘ultimate’ configuration of the current iPad, will be available in black and white color options and will also come in Wi-Fi and Wi-Fi+Cellular versions.
The P101 and P103 names are Apple’s internal nomenclature for the WiFi-only and Cellular-compatible fourth-generation iPads, respectively. Both of those models comes in 16GB, 32GB, and 64GB configurations. These storage sizes are known as “GOOD,” “BETTER,” and “BEST,” respectively. As you can see in our table above, Apple is preparing to release the additional “ULTIMATE” model. “ULTIMATE” frequently refers to the most premium or highest capacity model available. The “A” points to a black configuration, and “B” stands for the white option.
The report hasn’t provided any additional information about the launch date or pricing, but since Apple charges a $100 premium for the next higher capacity model, we’re assuming that the Wi-Fi only model of the 128GB iPad will be available for $799 and the Wi-Fi+Cellular model will be available for $929.
