Apple to Start Selling iPad Pro on November 11

Apple's much-anticipated larger-screened iPad Pro will go on sale both online and in Apple retail stores on Wednesday, November 11, reports 9to5Mac. Apple has thus far remained tight-lipped on the tablet's release date, giving only a general November release timeline.

Previous rumors suggested the iPad Pro would go on sale in early November, perhaps during the first week of the month, but Apple's release plans can shift ahead of an important launch. It is not clear if the company will offer pre-orders for the device ahead of the Wednesday, November 11 launch date.

Along with the iPad Pro, Apple also plans to begin selling its accessories, the Apple Pencil and the Apple Smart Keyboard, on November 11, both online and in retail stores.

Pricing on the iPad Pro starts at $799 for the 32GB Wi-Fi only version and goes up to $1,079 for a 128GB Wi-Fi + Cellular model. The Apple Pencil and the Smart Keyboard are sold separately for $99 and $169, respectively.

They're releasing it on Remembrance Day? Am I the only person who thinks that's a terrible idea? I'm surprised the Apple Store is even open stat holidays

I'm looking forward to the iPad Pro.

For playing music, it is a real boon, as music will finally be at a decent size. PDFs will also be a decent size. I'm impressed that they've kept the weight below the original cellular iPad, at least for the wifi model. Photos and videos will be awesome. The internet will be much nicer. I just wish battery life was much better; I'd have liked to have seen fifteen hours rather than ten.

For pure economy and productivity, it's hard to beat a good laptop and smartphone combination. That's the reason you see them in the workplace and on college campuses.

I am sure there is a market for a large iPad in the creative arts, but it is pretty small. Unfortunately, and contrary to Apple ads that show 20 something hipsters working in music or graphic art studios, the vast majority of us office slobs (me included) need a device that is optimized for handling databases, documents, spreadsheets and presentations. When it comes to this type of work, the laptop is king, so over $1,000 for a tablet is probably going to be a niche market.

I shall pick mine up on Nov 11th (hopefully), then download John Mcrae's poem "In Flanders Fields" and read it.
