iPad Pro release date tipped for November 13

Anyone in the market for an iPad Pro will likely be confused by Apple’s silence on the matter of a release date.

Fortunately, a popular US-based retailer has seemingly revealed the launch date in Apple’s stead.

Warehouse chain Sam’s Club is now accepting pre-orders for the device, and lists the iPad Pro release date as November 13 – that’s a Friday.

A previous report last week pointed to the iPad Pro launching as soon as November 11, but that may not be true after all.

We’d say that the November 13 launch is more likely, as November 11 is Veterans Day in the USA – an official federal holiday.

It’s expected that both the Apple Pencil and Smart Keyboard accessories will also land alongside the iPad Pro on the same day.

The iPad Pro starts at $799, but pricing rises above $1,000 for top-tier models.

Apple hasn’t confirmed UK pricing just yet, but we expect that the tablet will start at around £750.

The iPad Pro, first announced way back in September, is Apple’s biggest tablet ever.

It features a 12.9-inech 2,732 x 2,048 pixel display, as well as Apple’s new A9X system-on-a-chip, 4GB RAM, and 32GB or 128GB storage options.
