The iPad Pro finally has a release date & UK price

The 12.9-inch iPad will be priced starting at £679 for a 32GB WiFi-only model, with the LTE 128GB version retailing for £899, or WiFi only 128GB for £799, reports WIRED.

One of the big new features for the iPad Pro will be its Pencil stylus, which promises pro-level drawing and note-taking performance but will cost an extra £79. Rounding off the package with a Smart Keyboard will cost another £139, bring the total package of a highest-specced iPad Pro with accessories to £1,120.

That might sound like a lot, but the iPad Pro is packed with very impressive technology that clearly places it in competition with many laptops, including Apple’s own line of MacBooks, and Windows Surface Pro tablets of a roughly equivalent price

Most impressively the iPad Pro features a 2732 by 2048 pixels screen — the highest ever in an iOS device — along with an extremely powerful A9X chip, which is again the most powerful in any mobile Apple machine. The iPad Pro is just 6.9 millimetres thin and 713 grams in weight.
