    Hi there--I don't have the new iPad, as a gift to my sister we opted to get the 32Gb wifi iPad. I wanted to consider her future use and what she would use it for. I thought to go with the 32Gb to have more storage, however, if your funds allow for it--you should go with the highest storage capacity that you can.

    My next ipad I buy I will probably go for the 64Gb/cellular...there's been several occasions that I wished to be online but wifi was not available to me.

    Have a look at some of the recent threads posted for you to get a better idea of what you want to get. Good luck! :eek:

    I believe that you have to purchase the Apple care plan within 30 days of the purchase of the iPad.You will have to bring the iPad in to an apple store for inspection before you can purchase the apple care plan,if you didn't get apple care at the time of purchase.

    Hi and welcome to the Forum!

    Another difference between a wifi and 4G iPad is the true capability of GPS and the size of the iPad screen makes this so easy.
    You also do not need a charged sim for this as the GPS chip is built into the iPad. Just a thought here.

    2 very informative threads from which you will learn many tips and shortcuts for the IPad.
