Apple Quietly Increases 256GB and 512GB iPad Pro Prices by $50
As pointed out by MacRumors, Apple has quietly increased the prices on all of its 256GB and 512GB iPad Pro models by $50. For example, the 10.5-inch iPad Pro 256GB model, which was previously priced at CAD $999, is now being sold for CAD $1,049. Similarly, the price for the 512GB model has been increased to CAD $1,299, from previous CAD $1,259.
[In the U.S.] For the 12.9-inch iPad Pro, Apple now charges $799 for the 64GB model, $949 for the 256GB model, and $1149 for the 512GB model. All cellular models are an additional $130 over the above listed prices.
Best Buy has already updated its iPad Pro pricing to reflect price increase, but other sites have not yet done so.
It is not exactly known why the Cupertino giant has decided to increase the prices, specifically on its iPad Pro models, although it is believed that the prices may have been revised due to increased costs for memory.
So if you are planning to buy a higher-capacity iPad Pro in the near future, now is a good time to do it through a retailer that is still selling 256GB and 512GB iPad Pros for old prices.
