IPad Pro prices increase, but not for the reason you think

The iPad Pro now costs $50 more even though the features are the same

The iPad Pro now costs $50 more even though the features are the same

All models of the 256GB and 512GB of the iPad Pro are now $50 more than before, the 10.5 inch iPad Pro now costs $799 for the 256 GB model and $999 for the 512GB model. That's up a whopping £80 on the £889 Apple was advertising before the event on Tuesday.

Apple, naturally, hasn't spoken given an explanation for the price increases, but 9to5Mac has heard from "sources in the know" that it's due to the rising costs and short supply of NAND flash memory chips. A price hike has been made to both the 10.5-inch and 12.9-inch varieties of iPad Pro with little acknowledgement from Apple. According to The Verge, worldwide pricing on the iPad Pro has also gone up.

Perhaps Apple is having to pay more for the components for the iPad Pro models and passing that on to the consumer? The larger 12.9-inch variant will run you $949 for 256GB while the 512GB variant tops off at a mere $1,149. If you're interested in a cellular iPad Pro, you'll need to add a further $130 in each case. After all, even though Apple products tend to be a bit on the expensive side, their prices don't usually increase after they're brought to market. That's a less step hike, but a hike nonetheless.
