iPad Pro prices 2018 11-inch 12.9-inch sales deals

The best iPad Pro 11-inch (2018) deals

The 2018 iPad Pro marks the biggest change to the display since the original model. The edge to edge LCD screen has been achieved rounding its corners and using a liquid retina display similar to that found in the iphone XR. Apple has managed to create an 11-inch display, while keeping the chassis-size of the previous 10.5-inch iPad Pro thanks to a dramatic reduction of the surrounding bezel. The 120Hz display now comes with Face ID for unlocking too. The iPad Pro now comes with a USB-C connection but no longer has a headphone port.  

The new A12X bionic chipset makes the 2018 iPad Pros the most powerful yet and Apple’s really aiming for the professional creatives here with a big emphasis on how well the new Photoshop for iPad Pro works. Live demos have shown how it can effortless handle hundreds of high-res Photoshop layers with no lag. Apple also claim the iPad Pro is faster than 92% of other portable PCs. So it won’t surprise you to hear that the new 11-inch iPad Pro has a high price to match the high spec with the entry level 64GB model’s prices starting at $799 / £769 / AU$1129.

The best iPad Pro 12.9-inch (2018) deals

The 12.9-inch iPad Pro for 2018 enjoys the same new full-screen treatment as the new 11-inch version and looks spectacular too. The obliteration of the bezels of old, while keeping the screen-size at 12.9 inches actually means the new iPad Pro is smaller in the hand and lighter. Internally, it comes rocking the same upgraded tech as the 11-inch model.

A bigger screen makes it even better for creatives and the new USB-C connection makes it ideal to connect modern external displays. The new iPad Pros can even support 5K displays. It’ll come as no surprise that the 2018 12.9-inch iPad Pro prices are far from cheap, starting at $999 / £969 / AU$1529.

The best iPad Pro 2017 sale prices

2017 saw the debut of the 10.5-inch iPad Pro, as the previous smaller model was 9.7-inches. There is a 2017 12.9-inch model too. How do you tell the difference between the new 2018, 2017 and even older iPad Pro models if they share a screen size though? Well, the 2018 models mentioned earlier have a tiny bezel and the screen edges are rounded. As for the older-gen iPad Pros, your safest bet is to double check the internal spec and look out for one key difference, the 2017 iPad Pros use an A10X processor chip, and the older ones sport the A9X.

So, that's a faster processor to give it the edge over the older iPad Pro, you're also getting a modest upgrade to the rear camera, with the biggest megapixel boost being given to the front camera, which now provides a much clearer FaceTime experience. 

Both 2017 models are available in 64GB, 256GB and 512GB sizes. You'll also need to consider if you want a standard iPad Pro to only use Wi-Fi for online activities, or to opt for a cellular route and tie it too a data-only SIM only deal. Be warned though, cellular models are even more expensive.

The screen itself benefits from smaller than before bezels and a small boost in resolution. There's no two ways about it though, the changes aren't exactly earth shattering and if they're not going to make much difference for you. If you see a super cheap deal on the older models on this page, they're seriously worth considering.
