It appears that Apple is getting to release a new fourth-generation iPad as new SKUs for the device appear in a major retailer's inventory system. Apple currently offers 16GB, 32GB, AND 64GB storage options in all of its iOS devices and a new report is pointing to evidence that Apple is going to release a new fourth-generation iPad with 128GB of internal storage. Developers began to notice references to 128GB iOS devices in the latest iOS 6.1 beta code and now new SKUs for a fourth-generation iPad have shown up in a major retailer's inventory system as well.

9to5mac is reporting that they have been shown new SKUs from a major retailer listing a new fourth-generation iPad in its inventory system. The information in the description refers to P101 Ultimate and P103 Ultimate devices which are Apple's internal names for the WiFi-only and cellular versions of the fourth-generation iPad.

The information does not reveal any details, pricing or internal storage the device will have, but going by Apple's current naming convention, it appears that the device will have more internal storage than the current iPad configurations. Apple uses "good", "better", and "best" to describe the 16GB, 32GB, and 64GB iPad so the "Ultimate" in the device's description could imply an increase in internal storage.

The new configuration with increased storage makes sense as Apple could use the 128GB option as a way to sway consumers into choosing the fourth-generation iPad over the iPad mini. The iPad mini has reportedly been cannibalizing sales of the fourth-generation iPad, so this could be used as a way to differentiate the two models further by offering the flagship iPad in a model with twice the internal storage currently available in its iPad family.
