Why Did Apple Quietly Raise the iPad Pro's Price by $50?

Apple hikes iPad Pro prices by $50 following iPhone announcement event

Apple hikes iPad Pro prices by $50 following iPhone announcement event

The 10.5-inch iPad Pro 512GB Wi-Fi now costs £969.

Hopefully, iPad Pro prices will come back down once the NAND supply stabilises, but when that will be is uncertain. That's up a whopping £80 on the £889 Apple was advertising before the event on Tuesday.

Apple didn't provide an immediate explanation for why it hiked prices, however a report from Reuters in June suggested that there's a global storage on DRAM and NAND memory chips which provide the storage in iPads. The larger 12.9-inch variant will run you $949 for 256GB while the 512GB variant tops off at a mere $1,149.

North Korea threatens United States with "pain and suffering" measures
It still baffles me that the USA and other nations are hoping that stern words will encourage the controlled state to settle down. Textiles are one of North Korea's major exports, estimated by Rajiv Biswas of IHS Markit to value $750 million.

Apple quietly increased the price of the 256GB and 512GB versions of its 10.5-inch and 12.9-inch iPad Pro tablets.

Lost amid all the excitement and discussion surrounding Apple's new iPhone X and Apple Watch Series 3 was a price hike that has many industry watchers scratching their heads.

Either way, it makes the $329/£339 iPad 9.7-inch model seem even better value.

Hansteen Holdings plc (HSTN) Price Target Raised to GBX 130
Burberry Group presently has a average recommendation of Hold and an consensus price target of GBX 1,701.21 ($21.97). The Baker Avenue Asset Management Lp holds 21,239 shares with $519,000 value, down from 191,185 last quarter.

The prices for the 64GB models of both iPad Pro tablets has not been increased. If you're interested in a cellular iPad Pro, you'll need to add a further $130 in each case.

Why do you think Apple is raising the price on existing products?

North Korea sanctions 'nothing compared to what will have to happen'
