Some iPad Pro models just got more expensive

Apple hikes iPad Pro prices by $50 following iPhone announcement event
Apple Has Increased The Prices On 256GB And 512GB iPad Pro Tablets

The 256GB Wi-Fi 10.5-inch iPad Pro, which launched at £709 in the United Kingdom, now costs £769. That's up a whopping £80 on the £889 Apple was advertising before the event on Tuesday.

While Apple has given no explanation for the price rises, sources speaking to 9to5Mac report that it's down to a dramatic increase in the cost of NAND flash storage.

Apple has not changed the price of the 64GB models, which remain fixed at $649 for the 10.5-inch screen, and $799 for the 12.9-inch. Perhaps it has decided margins on the professional tablets aren't wide enough? There is a similar increase for the 12.9-inch iPad Pro. Worse yet, Apple's tablets aren't believed to have been updated with new features or more powerful components, so customers might be paying $50 more for the same device, according to The Verge, which earlier reported on the price increase. If you're interested in a cellular iPad Pro, you'll need to add a further $130 in each case.

The 12.9 inch iPad pro is now $949 for the 256GB model and $1,149 for the 512GB model. That's a less step hike, but a hike nonetheless.

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

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