Apple has refreshed its iPad Pro line and the new tablets are faster, offer better graphics, come with Face ID, and have ditched the headphone jack. The 2018 models come in two sizes; 11-inch and 12.9-inch and they can now be ordered for a November 7 shipment.
Highest Configured iPad Pro Model Will Cost $1,899 - Features a Whopping 1TB of Internal Storage
The maxed out variant of the 12.9-inch iPad Pro costs a whopping $1,899. It is available in the colors Silver and Space Gray, has up to 1TB of storage and offers Wi-Fi + Cellular connectivity. A payment of $5.99 per month for up to 2 years will also get you AppleCare+, which will enable you to get technical support and accidental damage coverage. The iPad Pro will ship with a Type USB-C cable and 18W USB-C power adapter.
Accessories that you may be interested in buying include the new $129 Apple Pencil that charges wirelessly, and the new $199 Smart Keyboard Folio that can be attached to the iPad Pro for a better typing experience. If you go for these accessories, your total cost will come in at $2,227.
The iPad Pro is fueled by the 7nm FinFET A12X Bionic chip, which is accompanied by a Neural Engine for AI-related tasks. It also supports Face ID but there is no notch and the home button is no longer there. The tablet has a new gesture-based navigation system and also provides support for split-view.
Admittedly, Apple is charging exuberant prices for the extra storage, cellular connectivity, and the accessories, but it is hardly surprising as Apple always goes for huge margins. That being said, the new iPad Pro is one of the most professional tablets on the market and with the addition of the keyboard, it could even compete with laptops thanks to the latest internal specifications.
