New iPad Model: While new Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) products continue to be discussed time and time again, it appears that a new iPad model is going to be making its way to the market sooner rather than later.
The good people at 9to5 Mac have gathered information stating that a single new iPad model is on its way.
Here is what you need to know:
“This would be a new SKU for the current fourth-generation iPad with Retina display line. At this point, we do not have pricing information, so it is definitely difficult to pinpoint exactly what this new iPad model is.”
Upon first publishing the story, 9to5 did not have any pricing information. However, they did some digging around and came up with the following:
“We’ve received pricing information for this new iPad model. The pricing is in line with a higher storage capacity, coming in at around $799 for the WiFi-only model and $929 for the Cellular-compatible model in the United States. So, new capacity sounds even more likely.”
At this point, there is no hard evidence of what the new model is and is not going to include. Like always, there is speculation about the possibilities. With all this in mind, 9to5 has compiled a checklist of information that they believe to be true. It is as follows:
“It is a fourth-generation iPad, not a new design.”
“It comes in both the current black and white color options.”
“It comes in both WiFi-only and WiFi + Cellular versions.”
“It is a more premium SKU that will join the current line of 16GB, 32GB, and 64GB fourth-generation iPads.”
“10-pack deals (in both colors) for educational institutions will be offered.”
Perhaps the most important detail here is the fact that the new Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) iPad is going to be a fourth-generation model, not a brand new design.
