The nano-texture glass is designed for users who work in high-end, color-managed workflows, or challenging lighting conditions. It is etched at the nanometer scale to maintain image quality and contrast while scattering ambient light for reduced glare.

Nano-texture glass has only been available on the Pro Display XDR, iMac, and Studio Display so far, making this the first time that it has come to a touch-based device.

Customers can only configure the iPad Pro with nano-texture glass with 1TB and 2TB models for an additional cost of $100. With an 11-inch model, this brings the price to $1,699 or $2,099, and with a 13-inch model it brings the price to $1,999 or $2,399.

Sounds like Apple didn't learn anything from the VisionPro debacle. An iPad for $2,400 PLUS TAX isn't going to sell like hotcakes. You could buy a real nice Macbook Pro for that, if you're into high end imaging.

What's the catch? I mean the nano texture option previously was blamed for scratching easily & it makes one wonder its durability with constant use of an Apple Pencil. Is it a different, newer type of nano texture? It looked a little different than previous iterations. Thoughts?

Nano texture isn’t like a paper-like screen cover. You can’t feel the texture with your nail or with a pencil. It’s super nano and very smooth. All it does is dampen reflections.
