When it’s released, the new 128GB will be the highest capacity yet, but what does it mean in practical terms? How many games, apps, photos, songs, and videos will the new 128GB iPad store?
We did the math. Here’s what you can fit on your new 128GB iPad.
Here’s a table breaking down, on average, how many media files you’ll be able to fit on each of the fourth-gen iPads.
A word of explanation on these figures. First of all, the average file sizes are taken from a number of sources, all of which are linked. Second, the capacities of these iPads do not take into account the space the iOS operating system takes up on disk.
Even so, as you can see, the 128GB iPad can fit an absolutely astonishing amount of media: up to 64 hours of 1080p HD video, enough music to listen to for almost 40 days straight, over two thousand games and almost six thousand apps, and enough photos to open your own Getty.
The funniest thing about these numbers? Even so, there are going to be people for whom 128GB isn’t enough.
