Some iPad Pro models just got more expensive

U.S. shopper got stung too, with both the 10.5-inch iPad Pro and 12.9-inch iPad Pro receiving a $50 price increase.

The 12.9-inch iPad Pro saw its 256GB and 512GB models increase by $50 to $949 and $1,149, respectively, with the latter nearing the price of a MacBook. When these products hit the shelves back in June, their price tags stood at $749 and $949.

The 12.9in iPad has seen similar increases, with the 256GB and 512GB models seeing their prices rise from £859 and £1039 to £919 and £1,119, respectively.

Perhaps Apple is having to pay more for the components for the iPad Pro models and passing that on to the consumer?

MacRumors reports that certain retailers like Best Buy have already revised their pricing for the higher-capacity models to reflect these changes. As yet there are no details on what Apple has increased the prices of the larger storage versions of the iPad Pro. If you're interested in a cellular iPad Pro, you'll need to add a further $130 in each case.

While Brexit might be an obvious explanation for the steep rise, Apple has also bumped the price of the same models in the United States.

Apple continues to support the charity by offering special (PRODUCT) RED accessories available both in-store and at Apple retail locations.
