CUPERTINO, Calif. – Apple has announced a new iPad with 128-gigabyte memory, which is twice as large as the current device.

The 128 GB Wi-Fi model will cost about $800, while the LTE model will be a little over $900.

The abrupt release marks a shift in how Apple is updating the iPad.

Instead of rolling out new iPads once a year or so, Apple is now treating the iPad more like its Mac line, releasing incremental updates to existing models.

The new iPad will be available on February 5.
