Although earlier rumours had pointed to a November 11 release of the highly anticipated iPad Pro, sources familiar with the matter speaking with Cult of Mac claim the device won’t be officially available until November 13, as does Sam’s Club, which has already begun accepting pre-orders on its website.
In an email sent out today, Sam’s Club informed its customers that they can expect the iPad Pro next Friday at the discount price of $787 for members. The Sam’s Club email and Cult of Mac’s sources confirm the details shared with AppleInsider by keyboard maker Pozible, all of which point to next Friday as the launch date of the iPad Pro.
Fact is, a Friday launch makes sense, considering Apple’s product release history.
As for the Apple Pencil and Smart Keyboard, they didn’t reveal any details, but it would make sense for these accessories to be available on the same date, November 13.
The iPad Pro will retail for $799 for the 32 GB Wi-Fi-only version, but it will go up to $1,079 for the top-of-the-line model (128 GB Wi-Fi+ cellular). Canadian prices are not yet known.
