Apple has doubled the storage options for the iPad with the introduction of a 128GB version of the fourth generation iPad. Consumers can purchase a 128GB iPad with retina display for Wi-Fi for $799 on February 5th. Microsoft offers a 128 GB version of its new tablet, the Surface Pro, which may have inspired Apple’s new release.
In the press release, Apple pointed out that companies who work with big files would benefit from the additional space available in the latest iPad release.
Amy Bunszel, VP of AutoCAD products for Autodesk, which offers an app for designers explained that its service often requires the use of large files. She stated, “These files are often large and highly detailed so having the thin and light iPad with its Multitouch display, integrated camera and all-day battery life, is a real advantage for iPad users to view, edit and share their AutoCAD data.”
