    Probably the reason there were only two storage sizes on the 12.9" Pro. Waiting for the 256GB model?

    Wow, F-You very much Apple. I JUST passed the 30 day return for my 128GB IPP LTE model. Now you have one for $20 more than the 128GB model.

    You screwed me over the very last time.

    Did Apple tell you when to buy it?

    Not Apple's fault.

    Right. Upgraded iPhone 6S+ camera on the IPP 10"?? I don't know but I don't care for that. But I do care for the 256GB size and updated LTE antenna bands.

    Band 12 support is what I needed!

    Within 4 months they launch a larger capacity one? Not funny at all.

    It's $150 more.

    I'm cool either way. Don't need all that space. Also don't need a flash as I don't use iPad's for huge camera's.

    Fudge, what a joke Apple. So how does this work, I have to sell my iPP on Craigslist and lose 200-300 bucks to get the 256GB model? This is ridiculous they waited til now to give the iPP 256.
    Also despite the fact a camera on a large iPP is not as realistic than a phone it's stupid the iPP mini has a better camera and better tech than Apple's 4 month old "greatest iPad Ever." I realize tech advances like crazy, but Apple really screwed people IMO. I would have loved to have been able to buy that 256 back when the iPP was released. I needed that space So now I get to play the fun game of trying to sell this iPad and get some kind of return so I can purchase a device that should have been released 4 months ago.
    *first world problems to the max, but frickin ridiculous nonetheless.

    Now that it CAN be done I hope that the iPhone 7/plus has 256GB as an option. With the amount of video and pictures that I take on my phone even 128 gets a little cramped every now and then.

    Always buy the device you need and which does and has what you want. If that device is not available, don't buy a lesser device.

    That way you're not negatively impacted by new product releases (which, I might add, is a pretty sorry state of affairs to begin with...).

    I was wrong it's $20 from $1079 (LTE model) for a WIFI ONLY model at $1099. The LTE 256GB model is $1229. But that's not too bad what's bad is that they put in 4K video recording, basically SAME camera as the iPhone 6S in the iPad 9.7". Not that the camera was the priority item on my list before buying an IPP, however. Just sad to see my ugly face using 1.2MP while the iPad pro 10" uses updated 5MP. I don't care for the true tone display either. But what I do care is for BAND 12 Tmobile support which is DOES SUPPORT NOW. 20 LTE bands on the IPP 13 vs 23 BANDS LTE on the IPP 10".

    Or they didn't have it on launch because Sandisk wasn't selling them until just recently ...

    The rumors have been out now for over 2 weeks!

    You could have returned it Friday when all the rumors were nearly confirmed.

    Right, we should all base everything on nearly confirmed RUMORS now should we? I'm still ok with my IPP LTE 13 but seriously Apple you really know how to d-k with people who pour money down your toilet. 4 months after this supposedly SUPERIOR MOTHER OF ALL IPADS come out you release the same one but in 10" size and give it more love like updated camera system and display panel while you claim the 13 was the best.

    This is why I'm pissed off.

    It's fine if they need a little longer to launch it, but if they knew they were going to launch it in 4 months, it would be nice if they mentioned as such during the November keynote.

    They're not obliged to, but it doesn't speak well for customer experience. Like @Kal-037 mentioned, now I have to make a choice on what to do.

    I really like the iPad Pro, but I rapidly realized I needed more space when attempting to edit large RAW photos and 4K videos.

    And it's not. LTE is available at all storage sizes.
