Apple revealed the iPad Pro tablet in September, along with the iPhone 6S smartphone and iPhone 6S Plus phablet. The new iPad Pro tablet and its accessories will be available from November 11th on both online and at Apple retail stores.
Besides iPhone 7 leaks, the Apple rumor mill has been flooded with info regarding the release date of Apple’s new professional tablet, the iPad Pro. Most recently, sources told 9to5Mac that the device is expected to hit the shelves on November 11. The same people also added that the device will be concurrently available in both Apple’s online and retail stores.
Though, as correctly pointed out by AppleInsider website, November 11 is a Wednesday that also happens to coincide with Veterans Day, which is a holiday in US- where Apple is also based in. Generally, the Cupertino giant launches major products either on Tuesdays or Fridays, while it avoids holidays as well. If the November 11 scenario turns out to be real, then we will witness a fresh approach to high-profile product launches from Apple.
When it comes to the company itself, the only remark regarding the iPad Pro’s circulation date was issued during the September 9 press event, where Apple mentioned a rather wide “November” time frame, so no specific intel whatsoever. The aforementioned accessories of the device that are presumed to tag along are the Apple Pencil stylus and the Smart Keyboard.
The iPad Pro sports a 5.6 million color 12.9-inch multitouch display and is powered by Apple’s much-touted A9X 64bit processor, delivering 22x CPU and 360x GPU faster performance than the original iPad. Pricing wise, the iPad Pro starts at $799 for a 32GB Wi-Fi model, going all the way up at $1,079 for the 128GB Wi-Fi and cellular model. In addition, the Apple Pencil and the Smart Keyboard retail for $99 and $169 respectively.
