    No price for the 128Gb Wi-Fi only? Based on the other two models it looks like it will be $1249. These prices are a full 30% more than the U.S. prices, even though, for example, the Air 2 prices are only about 10% higher in Canada.

    Oh boy, those prices. $99 for a Silicone case!? boy I miss those days when a leather case costs less than that.

    Let’s hope they at least offer education discount on these iPads.

  • I’m not surprise…. because all new products (new iMac, Macbook, iPhone and now the iPad Pro) released with a 30% difference because of the exchange rate. Older products like iPad Air 2, since was release last year, didn’t get that raise yet….
    I missed when our $ was very close the US$….

  • Updated the article to add 128GB Wi-Fi pricing, as revealed by Apple in an email.

    Is the preorder gonna start at 12AM PST?

  • No confirmation, but most likely given recent launches online.

  • Andrew Robulack

    I’m certainly going to play it safe and camp out on the Store app at midnight.

  • Darrin

    Remember preorder for iPad Air 2 didn’t start til early morning on the preorder date. Not right at midnight. It’s a softer launch. Is anyone able to confirm with ? retail stores if they’ll be available on Friday in person?

  • And also just to remember the Apple TV launch… wasn’t at Midnight / 3AM either…

  • Darrin

    Exactly. Softer rollouts. The iPhone launch is an Oscar production

  • Michel Plante

    Pathetic price but I’ll passed on it sorry ????

    I have a regular iPad and I think the home screen already makes terrible use of the space. There is nothing “pro” about iOS. I’m sure this thing will have some great usage cases, but it would make a lot more sense if the OS took better advantage of its large form factor.

    Does anyone know what time they will start sellng?
