Refurbished 128 GB iPad Models Begin Appearing in Apple Online Store.

Late last week, Apple’s online store for refurbished products began offering 128 GB fourth-generation iPad models for the first time. Wi-Fi models in black and white are currently being quoted shipping times of 5-7 business days with pricing set at $679, a discount of $120 from brand-new units.

The only cellular model currently available through the refurbished store is the white AT&T model, which carries an identical 5-7 business day shipping estimate and is priced at $789, a $140 discount compared to brand-new pricing.

Apple launched the 128 GB fourth-generation iPad in early February, several months after the release of lower-capacity models that saw updated internals and a move to Apple’s new Lightning connector.

The fifth-generation iPad is expected to debut as soon as next month with a redesigned body taking design cues from the iPad mini, giving the full-size iPad a significantly narrower and thinner profile.

128 GB iPad Launches – 1-3 Day Shipping.

Apple began offering the 128 GB iPad in the Apple online store today. Shipping is currently listed as 1-3 business days for most models. Wi-Fi + Cellular models are being quoted at 3-5 business days for all three carriers.


The new model, offering double the storage capacity of the previous top-of-the-line model, carries a $100 premium over the 64 GB versions and is available in all four combinations of black/white and Wi-Fi/Wi-Fi + Cellular models.

The 128 GB model, which was announced last week, comes as supply constraints have dogged both the new iMac and iPad Mini. Analysts will be watching to see how Apple handles the supply chain for this latest addition to the iPad lineup.

We’ll also be watching to see if the 128 GB iPad will re-ignite interest in the full-size iPad, as the line has experienced a significant drop in sales as consumer interest has focused on the iPad mini.
