Report Says iPad Pro Launching on Nov 11

| News

Apple promised the iPad Pro would be available in November, and if insider sources are right, the new tablet will launch on Wednesday the 11th. That's when they claim Apple's jumbo screen iPad will be in stores and available online, and not a pre-order date.

The sources also say Apple will start selling the Apple Pencil stylus and Smart Keyboard case and keyboard combo on the 11th, too.

Apple unveiled the iPad Pro during a media event in September. The new model includes a 12.9-inch display, Apple's A9X processor, 8 megapixel iSight camera and 1.2 megapixel FaceTime camera, stereo speakers on all four corners, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Touch ID, And LTE on some models.

Apple scored FCC approval for the new iPad last month, so the company should still be on schedule for this month's launch. iPad Pro is priced at US$799 for the 32 GB Wi-Fi model, $949 for the 128GB Wi-Fi version, and $1,079 for Wi-Fi plus LTE.

Apple hasn't officially announced the iPad Pro launch date, but that's likely coming soon.

(My two year old iPad Air is doing everything I want for the moment so there’s no actual reason to replace it just yet.)


It’s weird to be so excited about a product I won’t be buying for two years.
