Apple iPad Pro (2018): Pre-booking starts, price in India and specifications

18 November 2018

Based on the internal storage, the tablet comes in multiple variants, including 64GB, 256GB, 512GB, and 1TB.

Two weeks after the announcement of the new iPad Pro 11 and iPad Pro 12.9, the devices are finally listed for pre-order in India with shipments coming in on November 16. They both have the same pixel density of 264 ppi. Unlike some other recent Apple devices - specifically the Mac mini and the new MacBook Air - the 11-inch iPad Pro turned out to be something of a DIYer's nightmare, with gobs of glue holding everything down and making fix troublesome. Just like the 11-inch iPad Pro, the 12-inch model earns points for its modular USB-C port, but loses a significant amount for all the glue.

Five percent cash back is being offered by both Maple and Unicorn on EMI for Citibank Credit cards and Axis Card bank holders.

Does the new iPad Pro change that?

For the WiFi+Cellular variant, the 11-inch iPad Pro with 64GB will start at Rs. 85,900; the 256GB version will cost Rs. 99,900; the 512GB version will be Rs. 1,17,900; and the 1TB version will cost Rs. 1,53,900. You can also see the copper coil where it magnetically attaches to the tablet and charger and its mate on the iPad Pro (top photo). The iPad Pro 12.9-inch with WiFi only starts at Rs 89,900 for the 64GB variant, 256GB version will cost Rs 1,03,900, while the 512GB option will cost Rs 1,21,900.

The 1TB variant with only Wi-Fi will cost Rs 1,57,900 for the 12.9-inch iPad Pro. A report by NDTV citing premium resellers says that the iPad Pro launch date in India has been set for November 16th, which is this Friday. Apple's A12X Bionic is an octa-core processor, compared to the six cores on the regular A12. In the camera department, iPad Pro has a 12-megapixel rear sensor, and a 7-megapixel TrueDepth sensor up front. A12X allows for advanced neural networking functions, which can support AR apps, AI-related tasks and more. This is also the first iOS device to sport a USB Type-C port for charging, data transfer, and external connectivity.

It also has six cores for graphics. A Smart Folio folio case has been priced at Rs. 7,500 and Rs. 9,900 for the 11-inch and 12.9-inch sizes respectively, while a refreshed Smart Keyboard Folio has been priced at Rs. 15,900 and Rs. 17,900 respectively. The iPad Pro also gets Face ID, Animoji and Memoji as well.

Apple's iPad Pro is now open for pre-orders on sites of authorised Apple resellers like Maple and Unicorn.
