iPad Pro expected to start at $799 with 32GB of storage

Earlier today, we conjectured about the final price of the iPad Pro on Let’s Talk Jailbreak, and I think we all agreed that $799 would be the entry level price point for Apple’s new tablet. A new report from 9to5Mac happens to go along with those sentiments.

9to5Mac reports that Apple won’t offer a 16GB base model option with the iPad Pro as it does with other iOS devices, given its “Pro” status. 32GB, 64GB, and 128GB models will be in the lineup, and they will reportedly cost $799, $899, and $999 respectively.

Apple is also expected to offer options with LTE connectivity, which are to come with a $130 premium, raising the cost of the 32GB model to $929, the 64GB model to $1,029, and the 128GB model to $1,129.

9to5Mac has also reported that the iPad Pro will be powered by Apple’s next-generation A9X processor, which is expected to be significantly faster than the A8X chip, plus a 12.9-inch “monster” display, four stereo speakers, and a single Lightning port on its bottom edge.

If this report is right, then we can expect the following price table to ring true:
Granted, we’ve still yet to see what the iPad Pro is capable of, and the screen of the iPad Pro, even if it were of the same ilk as the current-gen iPad Air 2, would greatly outclass the screen on the MacBook Air.

If you ask me, there’s no way that this can just be a “larger iPad” with a stylus. Not at this price point. Something tells me that Apple has a few more tricks up its sleeve that have yet to leak.

In less than 12 hours, perhaps we’ll find out the truth.
