11-inch iPad Pro has received a price cut, with Apple making 2021 models priced lower than the previous generation. The same can’t be said about larger 12.9-inch models due to its new display technology, however.
Pricing on the 11-inch iPad Pro range now starts at a recommended retail price (RRP) of A$1,199. With 128GB storage and Wi-Fi connectivity. A$130 lower than the previous generation model with the same configuration.
The most significant saving appears to be the 512GB, storage models. Previously, an 11-inch iPad Pro with 512GB storage and Wi-Fi connectivity cost A$1,839. However, the same configuration is now priced at A$1,649, a saving of A$190.
A full breakdown of new pricing is as follows:
128GB Wi-Fi + Cellular
256GB Wi-Fi + Cellular
512GB Wi-Fi + Cellular
1TB Wi-Fi + Cellular
Price cuts have not made their way across to the larger 12.9-inch iPad Pro models. Prices, in fact, on those has increased, likely due to the new display being much more advanced. The 12.9-inch iPad Pro includes a significantly better display calls the ‘Liquid Retina XDR display’. The display uses a mini-LEG design that incorporates over 10,000 LEDs across the back of the display. Resulting in 1000 nits of full-screen brightness, 1600 nits of peak brightness, and a phenomenal 1-million-to-1 contrast ratio.
Apple revealed the updated 11-inch and 12.9-inch iPad Pro during its ‘Spring Loaded’ event. With its familiar striking design, but now powered by the M1 Chip. While also delivering 5G (on cellular models), a new 12.9-inch display, Thunderbolt, and more.
