Apple has started selling the capacious new 128GB iPad, the latest update to its fourth-generation Retina Display-sporting tablet design. The 9.7-inch iPad is pulling away from its 7.9-inch younger sibling, desperately crying out “I’m different!” with a flash storage bump.
With the world and his dog impatiently waiting for Android tablet makers to realise that pricing Android tablets at the same price as an iPad 2 is no way to win friends and influence non-iPad buyers, Apple is reportedly getting ready to strike back with cheaper pricing of its own.
Today at Apple’s press event, the company announced that the iPad would receive an update. In order to harmonize the product line, the iPad will now come with a Lightning port. A6X and expanded LTE will be added to the iPad as well.
The Lightning port is a good addition for iPhone 5 customers who are going to buy an iPad before the holidays.
New Apple product rumors from reliable sources have been few and far between lately, but this weekend the generally dependable 9t05Mac reported that a new iPad model is in the works. It’s not a brand new device, but rather a new SKU in the fourth generation iPad with Retina Display lineup.
