Thanks to two Indian Apple resellers, the pricing and the launch dates of these two iPad Pro models have been publicly released.

Unsurprisingly, prices get even bigger if you fancy the 12.9-inch display iPad Pro, which starts at $999 (£969, AU$1,529) and rises all the way to $1,899 (£1,869, AU$2,869).

Unlike some other recent Apple devices - specifically the Mac mini and the new MacBook Air - the 11-inch iPad Pro turned out to be something of a DIYer's nightmare, with gobs of glue holding everything down and making fix troublesome. Along with Face ID and new gesture-based controls, the new pro-level tablets have also made another significant change: they've swapped their Lightning port for USB-C. Whether you picked up the 11-inch or the 12.9-inch version, you may find yourself in need of some USB-C adapters and cables. A Smart Folio folio case has been priced at Rs. 7,500 and Rs. 9,900 for the 11-inch and 12.9-inch sizes respectively, while a refreshed Smart Keyboard Folio has been priced at Rs. 15,900 and Rs. 17,900 respectively.

Prices for the smaller iPad Pro 11 start at $799 (£769, AU$1,229) for the Wi-Fi only, 64GB model, but can rise to a lofty $1,699 (£1,669, AU$2,569) if you opt for the 1TB of storage plus Wi-Fi and cellular configuration.

It's noteworthy that the new iPad Pro does not come with a 3.5mm headphone jack and there is also no Type-C to 3.5mm dongle in the box.

Sadly, the new iPad Pro lineup does not support HDR content like the iPhone X and above.

In the end, the 12-inch iPad Pro teardown is nearly exactly the same as the 11-inch model. Apple, however, continues to cite 10 hours of battery life for the new device.
