San Francisco - Apple has introduced a new iPad with more memory - a welcome addition for iPad enthusiasts constrained by the limits of their gadget's 64GB memory.

Apart from the increased memory, the 128GB iPad will be identical to current iPad 4 models with a 24.6cm Retina display, Apple-designed A6X chip, FaceTime HD camera and iOS 6.1.

The 128GB iPad sells in the US starting at $799 for the Wi-Fi-only version, with the price rising to $929 for the version with Wi-Fi and cellular connectivity, Apple said in a statement.

No details were provided about the international release for the 128GB iPad, but in the past Apple has released devices in major markets such as Japan, Britain, Germany and Australia within a few weeks of the US launch.

Apple says more than 120 million iPads have been sold worldwide so far.
