Apple launched the 2018 edition of the iPad Pro last month and is now selling it in the US. Meanwhile, it hasn’t even announced when the tablet is going to land in India.
That’s not the case for two of its premium resellers in India though. Maple and Unicorn have both listed the iPad Pro (2018) on their sites with a launch date of November 16. Apple’s official India site simply asks visitors to “Check back later for availability.”
iPad Pro Pre-Orders Start
Maple and Unicorn are now accepting pre-orders for the iPad Pro (2018). The former is only accepting offline booking, while the latter is asking interested buyers to fill up a form. The tablet won’t come cheap, with the 11-inch model starting at Rs 71900 and the 12.9-inch one at Rs 89900.
The brand-new Apple Pencil which magnetically attaches to the iPad Pro will set people back by Rs 10990. The Smart Folio case for the 11-inch model costs Rs 7500, while the one for the 12.9-inch model costs Rs 9900. The Smart Keyboard Folio increases the asking price to Rs 15900 (11-inch) and Rs 17900 (12.9-inch), respectively.
As for deals, Maple and Unicorn are bundling a 5% cashback on EMI transactions done via Citi or Axis Bank credit cards. The Effective Monthly Cost (EMC) comes to Rs 3183 for the basic variant if the discount is included. Other than this, Bajaj Finserv is offering some No Cost EMI schemes.

Online retailers like Flipkart and Amazon India haven’t listed the iPad Pro (2018) yet. This will probably change as the November 16 launch date approaches closer.
