Apple quietly raises iPad Pro prices after iPhone X launch

Apple hikes iPad Pro prices by $50 following iPhone announcement event

This brings the 256GB 10.5-inch Pro to $799, while the 512GB model will cost you $999.

When the Apple Store came back online after Apple's iPhone event on Tuesday, the company's iPad Pro tablets were $50 more expensive than they had been before the show.

Apple didn't provide an immediate explanation for why it hiked prices, however a report from Reuters in June suggested that there's a global storage on DRAM and NAND memory chips which provide the storage in iPads.

Apple hasn't increased pricing for the entry-level 64GB iPad Pro models, with both 10.5in and 12.9in versions still available to pick up for £619 and £769, respectively. Perhaps it has decided margins on the professional tablets aren't wide enough?

The 12.9 inch iPad pro is now $949 for the 256GB model and $1,149 for the 512GB model. According to The Verge, global pricing on the iPad Pro has also gone up. If you don't need the Pro features, this is unquestionably the model to go for.

Apple has also increased the price of the tablets in more countries, these include the United Kingdom and Australia. That's a less step hike, but a hike nonetheless.

Why do you think Apple is raising the price on existing products?
