Owning up to its promise, Apple has started accepting orders for the iPad Pro in the US. The 12.9-inch tablet is now available for purchase both online through the company’s website, as well as in Apple stores.
Obviously the more eager among you will choose in-store pickup, meaning you can go ahead and grab one today, provided your local Apple store has it. Online orders will be shipped within a day and can be sent with next-day delivery (at an extra cost) so it will arrive at your doorstep on Friday. Free delivery means a long wait until Monday.
You won’t be able to have a fully equipped iPad Pro from day one, however, as the Pencil and Smart Keyboard won’t ship for another week or two. The earliest you’ll be able to get yours is November 19, but that may stretch as long as November 30.
Prices are as initially announced – the iPad Pro itself starts at $799 for a 32GB Wi-Fi only model, upping the storage to 128GB results in a $949 price tag, while adding cellular connectivity means $1079. The Pencil is a hefty $99, while the Smart Keyboard is an even more eye-watering $169.
Unfortunately for users on the other side of the pond, the iPad Pro cannot be ordered just yet. Throughout Europe Apple still lists the tablet as “Available November” with no further details.
Update: European orders are now open as well, with next-day shipping and prices starting from €899/£679.
