    Just wondering whether I should wait to buy the current large Ipad Pro after the new smaller one is announced. In the past, has the price of an Apple product dipped when a different version comes out. I know it is just a smaller version with same or similar features as the current larger one. Thanks for helping a newbie to this forum.

    The iPad Pro price will not change when Apple releases their iPad Air replacement in a few weeks.

    Although my wife thinks the iPP expensive, I thought for the use to which I put it - it is well within the right price bracket. And so it is proving so far.

    Value of an object that carries little intrinsic collecting value, is very subjective. And often too much emphasis is placed on price. Consider the use you will put it to, and whether it will improve, speed up, or have a value in your life in other ways. If the value does not add up to the cost, then maybe the time is not right to purchase.

    If you find the value is likely to be good, why wait?

    Edit: I forgot to add - the price may come down or it may not. I think not. And if you are from a part of the world where currency fluctuation happen a lot. Upward pricing is possible too.

    I'd simply wait - no one knows what will be released or happen.
    But at least then you can make an informed judgement call. for sure they are not going to sell out of IPPs given the current trend.

    Not expecting any price cut for the big Pro. If you need/want the bigger screen I would not wait.

    What I might wait for is to see if they use the chance to get me a spacegray (or better: real black) pencil. I can't stand white.

    I also do not see the price dropping until a new iPad Pro arrives. That will be later this year in September if then.

    Get it now and enjoy it! I go back to my Air 2 in the field and it feels like a toy compared to the Pro.

    No chance in hell will the price drop. A new 9.7" iPad isn't going to be a direct replacement. Maybe when the next version of the iPad Pro is released.

    Thanks for all the advice, just purchased off of Amazon with the Otterbox Defender case.

    I've said it in other threads... and I'll say it again: if you think the iPad Pro would be useful _buy it now_. It really is an AWESOME device. It's fast as hell, the screen is awesome and the Pencil is unrivaled.

    There is no reason to wait on this one.

    Yes, it's not for everyone... but if you can see it being useful to you at all... just do it! You won't regret it!

    EDIT: Just saw that you did order one! Congrats! Enjoy!

    There's also no harm in waiting for like 2 weeks just to see your options.

    Not many people "need" something like an iPad. Lets just say when people on MR say they need something, its more like they want it. lol

    If you're looking for a price drop, there have been lots of other retailers that have been selling the iPad Pro for $100+ off. Just wait for the next deal. It seems to happen pretty regularly. You won't see a price drop on the Pro from Apple directly, though.
