Apple plans to launch a 128GB version of the fourth generation iPad with Retina display on February 5, 2013. The 128GB iPad will come in the standard Black and White for a suggested retail price of $799 for the Wi-Fi model and $929 for the Wi-Fi + Cellular model.
As quoted in the original Apple Press Release, Philip Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing said, “With more than 120 million iPads sold, it’s clear that customers around the world love their iPads, and every day they are finding more great reasons to work, learn and play on their iPads rather than their old PCs. With twice the storage capacity and an unparalleled selection of over 300,000 native iPad apps, enterprises, educators and artists have even more reasons to use iPad for all their business and personal needs.”
It’s safe to say that many of us will not need an iPad with the ability to hold 128GB of data, but there are people and businesses out there that can really benefit from the extra capacity for large files and complicated apps. Many app developers may see this as a way to expand their app’s capabilities beyond the original constraints of 64GB.

Wow! What an announcement! On September 12, 2012, Apple announced the iPhone 5 and new line of iPods including an impressive iPod touch and iPod nano.
The new iPhone 5 will have a larger screen. To maintain the phone’s usability with one hand, the phone will only be taller, not wider. This will be the thinnest iPhone yet as it will be 18% thinner and 20% lighter than the previous iPhone. To achieve this thin design, the iPhone 5 will use the new, smaller Lightning connector. The back of the phone will now also have a lightly textured back instead of slick glass.
The new iPhone 5 will also be equipped with 4G LTE which will allow for much faster downloads. Its all-new Apple A6 chip will make the iPhone 5 twice as fast as previous generations while also increasing battery life. You will also be able to use FaceTime over your cellular network.
Although PeachMac does not currently carry the iPhone, we do have the largest selection of iPhone cases and accessories in the state! By Friday, September 21, we will have several brands in stock including Otterbox, Agent18, and others!
The new iPod line up is pretty impressive. The iPod touch now has a superthin aluminum body that can be one of many colors including: slate, silver, blue, yellow, & pink. It also comes with a “loop” that attaches to the back of the iPod to make it easier to carry around while reducing the risk of dropping. Its 4-inch Retina display is absolutely stunning and will make watching videos and playing games all the better! Even the iSight camera has been improved!
The new iPod nano is super slick. The size is a little larger, but still easily fits anywhere necessary! It is now about the size of a credit card and has a screen twice as large as the previous iPod nano for increased functionality. It comes in all the same colors as the iPod touch, but also comes in purple and green.
New iPods will be in stock in early October at all PeachMac locations.
