Apple is all set to launch its new iPad Pro in India, which is likely to hit store shelves next week.

The exact availability and pricing hasn’t been revealed yet. However, citing sources at Apple, TheQuint has revealed that the 32GB iPad Pro Wi-Fi will be priced at Rs 67900, 128GB iPad Pro Wi-Fi at Rs 79,900 and 128GB iPad Pro Wi-Fi Cell at Rs 91,900. The report also adds the availability of the device from the second week of December.

The iPad Pro with 12.9-inch 2732 x 2048 pixel Retina Display is just 6.9mm thick and weighs 713 grams. On the inside, the iPad Pro sports the Apple A9X chipset which Phil Schiller had said offers better performance than 80 percent of portable laptops out there. According to Apple, the A9X offers desktop-grade CPU and console-grade GPU. It promises a 10-hour battery life as well.

To complement the iPad Pro, Apple has finally made a stylus called the Apple Pencil. This white coloured pressure sensitive stylus that it launched at $99 and is aimed more at the creative professionals who want to get precise and accurate output for their ideas. There is no word on the Apple Pencil pricing in India.

The other additional accessory is the Smart Keyboard which can fold up to become the iPad Pro cover. You can orient the keyboard to be used for typing, for watching content on the display and covering the iPad Pro. This is also sold separately.

The recent iFixit teardown leaves the Pad Pro with a poor score of 3/10. iFixit gave it a repairability score of 3 out of 10 and pointed out that the Smart Connector port is virtually impossible to replace and also, that the fused front panel increases the cost of screen repair along with the risk of damaging the LCD when opening.
