How to preorder the new iPad Pro

Just when you thought it was safe to unlock your wallet, Apple releases a bunch of new iPads. Fresh out of Apple’s iPad farm are the new iPad Pro and new basic iPad, and while the iPad is one of the best tablets around, it’s the iPad Pro you should look to if you want the very best tablet experience Apple has to offer. Armed with Apple’s M2 laptop-level processor, the iPad Pro is available in 11-inch and 12-inch variants and comes with Apple Pencil and Magic Keyboard support. When using iPadOS as well, the iPad Pro is a productivity machine to be respected, and it’s a great choice if you’re looking for a work tablet.

The new iPad Pro range has just been announced, so it’s not quite ready for shelves yet. However, it is up for preorder, and buying one now through preorder is the best way to make sure you get yours on release day, October 26. Here are the best current preorder deals for the iPad Pro, including all the great preorder bonuses, gifts, and trade-in discounts.

Preordering from Apple

Apple is a strong one-stop shop for your new iPad Pro. Apple’s system will walk you through the entire process, starting at your model size, and moving through color, storage options (including that enormous 2TB option), and connection modes, and even offering up the Apple Pencil and keyboard accessories to add directly to your order. Try not to go overboard, as tempting as it is.

Trade-in options are solid. Apple is offering up to $500 off in trade-in credit, and while the monthly payment charges are high, that’s because it’s only spread over 12 months.

— starts from $799, or $66.58 a month for 12 months.

 — starts from $1,099, or $91.58 a month for 12 months.

That’s all for now

Try as we might, we haven’t been able to find anywhere else offering the new iPad Pro on preorder. So, if you’re looking for a preorder, Apple is currently your only option. We’ll keep an eye on this, of course, but it’s possible we won’t see any further additions to sales until the iPad Pro releases on October 26.

Apple introduced the iPad Pro 2024 and iPad Air 2024 in May. Should we expect even more Apple tablets to arrive before the end of the year? We might now have the answer to that question. Some recently discovered backend code has possibly revealed several upcoming iPad models from Apple. The code in question was found by Nicolás Álvarez and published by Aaronp613 on X.

The code lists four iPad models. One would assume this code is for new Wi-Fi only and Wi-Fi + Cellular versions of the baseline iPad and iPad mini as neither product has been updated for a long time.

When I bought the iPhone 15 Pro Max in 2023, it was my return to Apple’s largest iPhone after several years of only living with the smaller Pro model. I made the decision based on its feature upgrades and a wish to try life with a big-screen iPhone again.

Now, eight months after doing so, have I regretted it? No, quite the opposite.
The iPhone 15 Pro Max is superb
