Update, 11/11: Apple’s iPad Pro is now open for pre-orders.
Apple’s gargantuan enterprise-focused iPad Pro finally has a release date. The 12.9-inch tablet will be available for purchase online and in-store from Wednesday, November 11 in more than 40 countries.
Announced exactly two months ago today, the iPad Pro sports a 5.6 million-pixel screen, with a graphics quality that is “360 times greater” than that of the original iPad. “This is the most advanced display that we have ever built,” said Apple’s Phil Schiller, senior vice president of marketing, at the launch event. The device also has a new 64 A9X chip, which Apple claims is 1.8 times faster than the older A8 chip.
Available in silver, gold, and space gray, the 32GB Wi-Fi version will set you back $799, though there is a 128GB Wi-Fi version that will cost you $949, and a 128GB LTE incarnation that will require 1,049 of your hard-earned dollars.
“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,” said Schiller in a press release.
At the iPad Pro event in September, Apple also announced a new Apple Pencil stylus that can be used to write or draw on the iPad Pro. This, too, will go on sale from Wednesday, for $99.
The iPad Pro will be available in the U.S., U.K., and much of Europe, as well as China, Australia, Canada, and Japan.
