Last week, we reported about the tentative pricing of the largest iPad from Apple yet. Today, the company has finally launched the Apple iPad Pro in India. As we reported in our previous story about the large-screen tablet, the iPad Pro comes with a starting price of Rs 67,900 in the country. The variant of the tablet is also available with 128GB storage capacity, but 64GB variant is surprisingly missing.
The 32GB (Wi-Fi Only) and 128GB (Wi-Fi only) variants of the iPad Pro come with price tags of Rs 67,900 and Rs 79,900 respectively, while the 128GB (Wi-Fi + Cellular) variant is priced at Rs 91,900 in India. The Apple iPad Pro Smart Keyboard cover, Apple Pencil, and a special silicone case have been released with grossly steep pricing of for Rs. 14,900, Rs 8,600 and Rs 6,100 respectively
The device, which runs iOS 9, comes with a 12.9-inch LED-backlit IPS LCD Retina display, a desktop-class Apple A9X processor, 4GB of LP-DDR4 RAM, an 8-megapixel primary camera with 1080p video recording, a 1.2-megapixel secondary camera, dual microphones, dual-band Wi-Fi ac, Bluetooth v4.2, 4G LTE (in supported variant), GPS, and a 10,307 mAh battery.
In other news, the company has dropped the price of the iPhone 5S (16GB) in the country to Rs. 24,999, but the price of the Apple iPhone 6 is steady at Rs 49,699. What do you think about the pricing of the iPhones and iPads in the country? Are those price tags high just because of faltering Rupee value or is Apple trying to burn customers’ pockets?
