Apple quietly raises iPad Pro prices after iPhone X launch

Red iPhone X

Some iPad Pro models just got more expensive

There was lots of big news from Apple yesterday, headed by the announcement of the iPhone X, but one thing the company didn't draw much attention to is the fact that some iPad Pro models have just gone up in price.

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.

Prior to Tuesday's Apple rollout, consumers could purchase the 256GB and 512GB 10.9-inch iPad Pro for $749 and $949, respectively.

While Apple has given no explanation for the price rises, sources speaking to 9to5Mac report that it's down to a dramatic increase in the cost of NAND flash storage.

Apple has also increased the price of the tablets in more countries, these include the United Kingdom and Australia. The 256GB model now costs $949 (up from $899) and the 512GB model costs $1149 (up from $1099).

The price of the 64GB version of both iPads remains unchanged. If you're interested in a cellular iPad Pro, you'll need to add a further $130 in each case.
