Apple iPad Pro price and release date

Apple iPad Pro price and release date
Lo and behold, the long-rumored large, professional tablet from Apple has finally become a reality. With the 12.9" iPad Pro, Apple stems to fight the tablet sales slump, and combat the slew of thin and light touchscreen convertibles that will flood the market this holiday season thanks to Intel introducing a fanless processor line that allowed for some incredible designs from OEM manufacturers, and battery life as long as the iOS and Android slates offer.

Will it succeed? Well, the iPad Pro has a breathtaking display resolution, and split-screen multitasking, plus the keyboard and Pencil stylus accessories to make it a formidable workhorse or designer machine, so we'll see how the sales pan out when the the iPad Pro is released some time in November. 

These sales will, as usual, depend heavily on the price tag, and here is how Apple decided to price its largest tablet ever:

Apple iPad Pro Wi-Fi model: 32GB/128GB - $799/$949

Apple iPad Pro Wi-Fi + LTE model: 128GB - $1079

The ipad pro is to compete with the Surface, not a laptop. No Touchscreen on MBP, No drawing on MBP.

First of all unless you're 12 don't use non-words like "bruh" or "bae" you just make yourself look stupid. Second, It doesn't matter what the OS is, sure iOS is a more dumbed down touch centric OS but I bet there are more iPad users out there that use a keyboard than surface users all together. BTW I don't use any apple devices.

I have more faith in humanity now. I expected the Apple watch to sell more than the ipad 2 and it didn't I don't think so there is hope.

I don't know. I hear you. I'm just not so sure. I'm already hearing how Apple perfected the stylus. So it being $100 and the fact you have to charge it doesn't seem to bother their fans so far.

The Ipad Fat remains an expensive toy that does nothing for professionals!

I'd like to see some multitasking like this that we saw on android back in 2011. Come on, Apple. Show us something better than split-screen so that I can ditch my Air 2 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ezvAs759rbg

Why no 64GB version? Oh wait, it's the same thing as with 32GB iPhones. Damn Apple, you nasty.

That pricing is pretty insane I love new toys but I'll stick with my macbook pro. The ipad pro sounds amazing though.

I don't care what the software package is, it's still an app. Short for APPLICATION, an APPLICATION is made of SOFTWARE.

Tablet sales have been declining year over year. Apple admits it, Samsung/Android admits it. Portability with the iPad Pro - iPP (I Pee Pee, get it? lol) is thrown out the window, may as well just get an MBP to be productive. Can't imagine the Enterprise purchasing so many of the iPP's instead of a Surface or MBP for roughly the same price. Maybe they will just for bragging purposes...oh look at us, we're a fancy hip company that gives out iPP's.

I'm betting that this will not sale well. Only to select fanbois and certain professionals. Way to much for an iPad experience. And the stylus is not even built in. One thing Samsung has done correct with it's Note series devices was make it part of the body and include it with the package.
