At one side, Apple has slashed the prices of old phones including the iPhone SE and at another side, it has raised the prices of the iPad Pro 256GB and 512GB models. To be precise, Apple has quietly increased the prices of these two models by $50. Initially priced at $740 and $848 for the models 256GB and 512GB, the 10.5-inch (Wi-Fi) models are now priced at $799 and $999.
Talking about the two models featuring the cellular capability, the new hiked prices are $929 and $1,129 from $879 and $1,079.
The hike in prices of the iPad Pro 256GB in Europe and Australia has also been observed. The 256GB Wi-Fi 10.5 inch iPad Pro launched in the UK and Australia at £709 and AU$1,129, and they’re now priced at £769 and $1,199. However, the pricing for the 64GB models remains the same as they were launched earlier this year.
The reason behind the increase in the prices is expected to be the undersupply of NAND flash memory chips.
Well, if you have long been planning to buy any of these iPad Pros then it’s not a good time for you. Perhaps you may need to search for retailers who’re still offering it at the original pricing.
