PSA: Apple has raised prices on some models of iPad

Apple has  raised the prices on all of its 256 and 512GB iPad Pro models.


All 256 and 512GB 10.5 and 12.9-inch iPad Pro models are $50 more expensive, which means for the 10.5 model, the prices are now $649 for the 64GB model, $799 for the 256GB model, and $999 for the 512GB model.


For the 12.9-inch iPad Pro, prices are now $799 for the 64GB model, $949 for the 256GB model, and $1149 for the 512GB model. All cellular models are an additional $130 over the above listed prices.


Not all retailers have updated this price, and it’s not really clear why the prices have changed, but keep it in mind if you’re about to buy an iPad Pro!



New iPad News

The rumored upcoming 10.5-inch and 12.9-inch iPad Pro are apparently already deep into production, ahead of a reported announcement during the keynote address at WWDC this June.


Sneaky leaks have come out in the last couple of days, which talk about a device that has smaller bezels, four speakers, a new microphone slot located at the top rear of the case, a Lightning port, camera with vertically-aligned flash, side volume rockers, and a Smart Connector.


The most talked about feature is the bezels, which mean squeezing in a 10.5-inch display into the same form factor as the 9.7-inch iPad.


Alongside software updates (iOS, macOS, watchOS, and tvOS), the upcoming WWDC is said to have smallish MacBook announcements as well as possibly a reveal of a Siri Speaker.


WWDC begins with the Keynote address on Monday, June 5th at the McEnery Convention Center in San Jose, CA, and you should be able to watch it on the Apple website, through the iOS Apps, and on your Apple TV.


Something Apple this way comes?

Apple has updated its System Status page to say that its online store will be “updated and unavailable” due to “maintenance” tomorrow, Tuesday, March 21, between midnight and 5:30 a.m. Pacific Time .



This could mean that Apple is preparing for the rumored iPad launch that’s been predicted for the week, with the extra hint that Apple commonly issues press releases at 8:30 a.m. Eastern Time, which is exactly when the maintenance update is scheduled to end.


A little light for an actual hint, but we can work with it.


The last couple of weeks has been home to a host of rumors expecting Apple to announce three new iPad Pro models in the next few weeks, including an all-new 10.5-inch model with slimmer bezels and updated 9.7-inch and 12.9-inch versions.


This wouldn’t necessarily be a launch, per se, rather an official press invite to a launch. If it’s actually a real life Apple Thing at all.


Other products rumored to be in the launch line up include a larger iPhone SE model with 128GB storage, new Apple Watch bands, and a red color option for iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus.


Of course, this could just mean that the store is down for maintenance. Booooorrrrring. We want new iPads for all!

Will we see a new iPad Pro announced in April?

It’s not like Apple is a totally mysterious company when it comes to launching new products, right?


Uh…. not right. So here’s what we’re looking at, rumor-wise for the possibly upcoming announcement of a new iPad:


First week of April, Apple will announce two new iPads at an event that will be marking the inauguration of its Apple Park campus. When we say first week of April, we mean from approximately March 20th to mid April.


Apple plans to target the education and business sectors with a new 10.5-inch iPad Pro and a refreshed 12.9-inch model.


The 12.9-inch iPad will probably only feature small upgrades, but the 10.5-inch model might feature a nearly bezel-free edge-to-edge display.


What do you think would be some sweet iPad Pro upgrade features? What would make you want to upgrade?




New iPad Pro!

The next big thing in iPads is apparently not so big… reports are that Apple will be revealing a new member of the iPad Pro family at the Special Media Event on March 15th – albeit a baby one.


The smaller iPad Pro will be a 9.7 inch device (the current iPad Pro is a 12.9 inch model) however will have the same awesome features as it’s bigger brother.



Apple is rumored to be slimming down their iPad  line-up and focusing only on the 12.9-inch iPad Pro, 9.7-inch iPad Pro, and 7.9-inch iPad mini 4 as its main devices, with the iPad Air 2 possibly available as an entry-level model at the middle size.


Did the size of the iPad Pro previously put you off despite it’s many attributes? Would you be more likely to buy a smaller iPad Pro?



New iPad Pro Ad released!

Pre-orders for the iPad Pro begin tomorrow and as such, Apple has released another video celebrating the new device.



It does look pretty sexy, doesn’t it?


Pricing for the iPad Pro starts at $799 for the entry-level 32GB Wi-Fi only model. A 128GB Wi-Fi only model is available for $949, and a 128GB Wi-Fi + Cellular model is available for $1,079.



The iPad Pro is available in the three signature iPad colors: Space Gray, Silver, and Gold. The Apple Pencil retails for $99, while the Smart Keyboard comes in at $169.





Confirmed Pre-order date for the iPad Pro!

This morning Apple announced that, as anticipated, the 12.9 inch Retina Display iPad Pro will be on sale in Apple Stores, select carriers and Apple Authorized Resellers ‘later this week’ (we’re guessing Friday), AND that pre-orders will begin this Wednesday, November 11. You will also be able to pre-order the Apple pencil and the Smart keyboard on Wednesday.



As we told you guys at the end of last week, Sam’s Club had already begun accepting pre-orders for the iPad pro but has since sold out.



From the Sauce, Philip Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing:



“The early response to iPad Pro from app developers and our customers has been incredible, and we’re excited to get iPad Pro into the hands of customers around the world this week, iPad Pro is the most powerful iPad we’ve ever made, giving users the ability to be even more creative and more productive with the epic 12.9-inch Retina display, powerful 64-bit A9X chip and groundbreaking Apple Pencil and new Smart Keyboard. We can’t wait to see what they do with iPad Pro.”



Pricing for the iPad Pro starts at $799 for the entry-level 32GB Wi-Fi only model. A 128GB Wi-Fi only model is available for $949, and a 128GB Wi-Fi + Cellular model is available for $1,079.



The iPad Pro is available in the three signature iPad colors: Space Gray, Silver, and Gold. The Apple Pencil retails for $99, while the Smart Keyboard comes in at $169.

Were we all wrong about the release date of the iPad Pro?

Yes, the answer is, probably, yes. How do we know? Sam’s Club, of course! And some logic mixed in there. In an email sent out to members this morning, Sam’s Club advertised a release date of the iPad Pro as Friday the 13th of November. Spoooooky iPad release date.


This makes some sense, as the previous estimated release date of the 11th of November is Veterans Day here in the United States.


Apple is yet to comment. How uncanny.


If you’re a member of Sam’s Club – you’re in luck! They’re accepting pre-orders for the 32 and 128GB Wi-Fi iPad Pro models in Space Gray, Silver, and Gold. You’ll also be able to get the devices at a slight discount, as they’re offering the two models at $787 for 32GB and $937 for 128GB, compared to Apple’s pricing of $799 and $949.



Pricing on the iPad Pro starts at $799 for the 32GB Wi-Fi only version and goes up to $1,079 for a 128GB Wi-Fi + Cellular model. The Apple Pencil and the Smart Keyboard, its two accessories, are sold separately for $99 and $169.


We’ll let you know as soon as Apple themselves gives a solid release or pre-order date!



Eddy Cue talked iPad Pro and audience members got punked

Yesterday, Apple’s SVP of software and services Eddy Cue spoke at the Dropbox Open conference with CEO Drew Houston, where he talked about, among other things, Apple’s upcoming release of the 12.9-inch iPad Pro.


The iPad Pro is said to be released this coming Wednesday the 11th of November, and so far there’s been no confirmation of that date or any hint if Apple will be having a pre-order date preceding the release.


Eddy Cue did not give any more hints regarding that however he did bring out an iPad Pro to show off on stage. And then this happened:









Haha. Suckers.



We’ll let you know the minute we find out when you can pre-order the iPad Pro! In the mean time, check out what you can expect from that bad boy here!
