Is anyone else able to find 9.7 on their website?
hopefully they're updating it with a sale
not finding it on there either though
No looks like recall or they were pull I know someone here posted they were sold a Verizon LTE iPad Pro 9.7 for $529 no contract. Thats a no-no
Obviously Apple has discontinued the current 9.7" Pro and will later this week be launching one with 4GB of RAM.
Somethings up community wide red alert called the they do infact have them in stock but not allowed to sell them i am guessing a few things.
#1. Best Buy glitch they were selling them too cheap.(at least 1 person posted)
#2. Retailer contract negotiations Best Buy is being mean and not selling them deliberately to hurt Apple.
#3. Bad batch recall unknown to public.
#5. None of the above.
If you read the thread again, the guy did buy on contract...
Awesome, refresh is happening already! #Ipad3to4
Am concerned since I bought mine at best buy a week ago(bought it online) good thing Im an elite member so I have 30 days, but I want to know what the heck is going on
It means nothing since Apple and others are still selling it. It's a bestbuy thing.
I really wouldn't worry, its probably just Best Buys system maintenance or a glitch.
I did an online chat with them, not sure if the lady has no clue what she is talking about but she said they are all sold out and thats why
Why not order from Apple?
I think people are trying to figure out why Best Buy is not selling them at this point, rather than trying to actually buy one.
called in last
Called in last night to my GF just a friend she works at Best Buy. Best buy tracks EVERYTHING, their data showed people were Returning ANYTHING and everything in exchange for an iPAd Pro 9.7
In the initial launch days anyone who bought a Laptop or even a 12.9 Pro or any tablet or even a in expensive PC were like hmmm thats $399 off (returned item) towards an iPAd Pro 9.7
So they are waiting a few days or weeks until thats dies down. The return rates were through the rough on their analytics metrics return rates hurt Best Buys margins store numbers etc.
And people claim Apple is money hungry!
I don't buy that explanation at all. If someone decided that they'd rather have an iPad Pro than whatever else they recently purchased, they would still return that item regardless of whether BB had the pro in stock or not. And the pro isn't some hot new item that people are clamoring for either. Furthermore if it were true, then maybe that would explain stores not having them but to have the item removed from the website entirely makes no sense.
I'm chalking it up to a simple web maintenance/housekeeping error. Best Buy is very good about keeping their website correct. I visit the site regularly and I can't recall the last time I've seen a "dead link".
If Best Buy was truly removing the 9.7 iPP then they would've updated the "featured" banners and graphics to remove reference and links to it.
Zero chance the above is true.
Is this online only or are they still available in store?
Links still broken today - looks like a site problem as they show up on the main iPad page:
nope. not a site problem.
I already have one, got it from best buy, just seemed weird that they no longer have it
Interesting that the iPad Air 2's are listed as Clearance on BB's website.
