Epic 12.9-inch iPad Pro Available to Order Online Wednesday & Arrives in Stores Later This Week
iPad Pro Arrives in Over 40 Countries Including the US, UK, China & Japan

CUPERTINO, California — November 9, 2015 — Apple® today announced iPad Pro™ is available to order online on Wednesday, November 11, from Apple.com and will arrive at Apple’s retail stores, select carriers and Apple Authorized Resellers starting later this week. Apple Pencil™ and Apple’s new Smart Keyboard, also available to order on Wednesday, bring breakthrough levels of precision and utility to iPad Pro.

“The early response to iPad Pro from app developers and our customers has been incredible, and we’re excited to get iPad Pro into the hands of customers around the world this week,” said Philip Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing. “iPad Pro is the most powerful iPad we’ve ever made, giving users the ability to be even more creative and more productive with the epic 12.9-inch Retina display, powerful 64-bit A9X chip and groundbreaking Apple Pencil and new Smart Keyboard. We can’t wait to see what they do with iPad Pro.”

The new, larger iPad Pro features a stunning 12.9-inch Retina® display with 5.6 million pixels, the most ever in an iOS device, and groundbreaking performance with the new 64-bit A9X chip, rivaling most portable PCs. It is thin, light and delivers all-day 10-hour battery life* that users have come to expect from iPad®. Apple Pencil for iPad Pro makes drawing and sketching feel remarkably fluid and natural, and delivers incredible accuracy for activities like fine art illustration and detailed 3D design. A built-in Lightning® connector on Apple Pencil makes for quick and easy pairing and charging. Apple’s new Smart Keyboard further extends the utility of iPad Pro, offering a full-sized keyboard in a thin, durable design so you can take it anywhere. The Smart Keyboard attaches to iPad Pro’s innovative Smart Connector port, eliminating the need for a separate battery, on/off switch or Bluetooth pairing.

iPad Pro has already inspired developers of the next generation of advanced apps for everything from productivity, design, illustration, engineering and medical, to education, gaming and entertainment.

“iPad Pro enables new forms of mobile creativity that will help transform how creatives work,” said Scott Belsky, vice president of Products at Adobe. “With the larger iPad Pro screen and lightning-fast performance, creatives will be able to take full advantage of Adobe’s family of Creative Cloud mobile apps. For example, the ability to manipulate a 50-megapixel image right on iPad Pro in Photoshop Fix and then send that image to Photoshop CC on a desktop, for further refinement, is the kind of industry-advancing collaboration that millions of Adobe and Apple customers will benefit from.”

“Creative thinkers worldwide use Paper as part of their workflow, designing everything from flow charts, to storyboards, to wireframes, to architectural sketches. iPad Pro is the ultimate platform for Paper, with a powerful 12.9-inch Retina display and A9X chip that deliver performance rivaling most portable PCs,” said Georg Petschnigg, CEO and co-founder of FiftyThree. “iPad Pro gives Paper users an even bigger and more dynamic canvas on which to rapidly capture ideas however they strike — as notes, photos, sketches or diagrams.”

“Procreate 3 is designed for iPad Pro to give artists a more immersive experience than ever before,” said James Cuda of Savage Interactive. “iPad Pro’s gorgeous 12.9-inch Retina display lets you create massive artworks: up to an incredible 16K in resolution. This new level of definition allows for large format printing and exceptionally detailed artworks. Procreate 3 is also built for Apple Pencil. Its remarkable accuracy, pressure sensitivity, tilt detection and palm rejection make Apple Pencil the tool we’ve been waiting for.”

“iPad Pro and Apple Pencil are the new pad and pen,” said Evi Meyer, CEO of 3D sketching app UMake. “With its simple use and powerful computing capacity, designers can leverage these tools to reimagine their sketching experience and finally elevate their flat work to 3D. UMake, iPad Pro and Apple Pencil finally empower professional designers to embrace innovation, along with their creativity.”

Bro, did you ask about stock availability?

Heading to 1Utama now to check it out. Hopefully 32GB Space Grey is available.

I didn't ask but I overheard the sales assistant telling another client that while stock of the iPad Pro is available, no accessories were available, including the keyboard and pencil.

Hmmm. I don't plan on getting the pencil.

But I'm still contemplating on whether to get the Keyboard.

Screen protector is a must.

Anyone noticed how much faster and smoother the iPad Pro feels after iOS 10? Suddenly my iPad Pro 12.9" is like flying fast. Everything seems to load faster including games.

Yup, my iPad Air 2 feels faster with iOS 10.. I thought it was just a placebo effect but you've just confirmed it smile.gif Loving the split screen in Safari!

Swift Playground also now available for iPad

Better don't buy from Lazada.  I bought the 12.9 iPad pro and they canceled my order  saying  no stock.  So I went to  customer service they said  because  the free gift apple pencil no stock so my order was canceled.  But funny  thing is the  Lazada official  store the apple pencil still got stock and Can be added to cart.

Ya, I've been reading the feedback and there's quite a number of complaints on orders being cancelled, wrong capacity iPad being shipped, etc.

Maybe end November or early December? I don't think Apple MY will publish the prices so quickly if they are only gonna make it available next year.

Hi, I'm looking for some advice. I'm looking for a second-hand iPad Pro 12.9 inch model, 1st gen. What's a good price zo should be looking out for, for a 128GB or 256GB model? Just want to be careful 😊

I think it comes with either 64GB or 256GB, no 128GB option.
