Apple’s iPad Pro release date has not yet been officially confirmed by the company, but rumours in the last few days suggest that the tablet computer will be available for purchase from November 11th.
The iPad Pro was first demonstrated in September, at which time Apple said it would be available by November. No firm release date was given at the time. However, popular Mac rumours website 9to5Mac has mentioned several sources that claim the release date is November 11th.
The website previously said that Apple is due to finish staff training on the iPad Pro by the 6th of this month. It’s since stated that the device will be available online and in physical stores shortly afterwards, including accessories such as the Apple Pencil and the Smart Keyboard.
Currently, the iPad Pro official site still says this month, but if the rumoured 11th date is true, it will likely be confirmed sometime this week.
Further, according Digitimes, Apple plans to only make around 2.5 million of the largest tablet at least in 2015. It also said the company will place only limited orders through the first quarter of 2016.
The iPad Pro with 32 GB and 128 GB options, and Wi-Fi, will go on sale for $799 and $949. The 128 GB-only Wi-Fi + 4G version will cost $1,079. The Apple Pencil meanwhile costs $69 and the Smart Keyboard will be priced at $99.
