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.

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.

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.

6 years later, the iPhone X still does one thing better than the iPhone 14 Pro
iPhone X.

I’ve been an iPhone user since the very beginning, starting with the original iPhone. You know, the one with the 3.5-inch display that was perfect at the time, making it super easy to use a phone with one hand? As the years go by, the iPhone — and every other smartphone out there — just get bigger and bigger. We now have phones that with almost 7-inch displays, and honestly, I don’t understand how anyone can comfortably use these giant phones — especially if you have smaller hands!

With the iPhone, we’ve gone from 3.5-inch to 4-inches, then 4.7-inches to 5.8-inches, and now the standard 6.1-inch and 6.7-inch of the iPhone 14/iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Plus/iPhone 14 Pro Max, respectively. I personally use an iPhone 14 Pro as my primary device, and while I have gotten used to the 6.1-inch size over the past few years, I still think it’s too big. In fact, the last perfect size iPhone was the iPhone XS with the 5.8-inch display ... and I really wish Apple would bring it back.
5.8 inches was a perfect middle ground
