As with all the models of the iPad, the 128GB will be available with WiFi or WiFi with Cellular. Customers can choose from black or white models.
Apple has decided to expand the storage space as more and more people and businesses begin to rely on the iPad for various solutions.

Companies are using apps that require high amounts of data like CAD files, X-rays, music tracks, film edits, project blueprints, training videos and more.
