The rumours came true – almost a little too quickly.

Apple announced Tuesday that it’s launching a 128 GB model of the fourth-generation iPad.

The tablet with the monster-size storage capacity practically doubles the amount of stuff you can store on the iPad.

Previously, the biggest capacity you could get the iPad in was a 64 GB model.

The new version means you can now fit more music, movies, magazines, books and apps than ever before.

And with that much space, it’s creeping up on the amount of strage space offered by many Ultrabooks – traditional but lightweight laptops without spinning hard drives.

Apple says the 128 GB iPad will be available Tuesday Feb. 5 for $799 (WiFi only) or $929 for the WiFi + ceullular version. That’s an extra $100 for double the space.

Both will feature Apple’s sharp 9.7-inch Retina display.
