Starting today, the new 11-inch iPad Pro, 12.9-inch iPad Pro, and redesigned 10.9-inch iPad are available for pickup at select Apple Stores around the world, with no pre-order required. A wide range of size, color, and storage capacity options are available for each device at Apple Store locations in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, and many other countries, but selection may become more limited throughout the day.

To order a product with Apple Store pickup, add the product to your bag on Apple.com or in the Apple Store app, proceed to checkout, select the "I'll pick it up" option, enter your ZIP or postal code, choose an available Apple Store location, select a pickup date, and select a 15-minute check-in window. Payment is completed online, and a valid government-issued photo ID and the order number may be required upon pickup.

While most Apple Stores appear to have adequate stock of the new iPad Pro and iPad models as of Wednesday morning, note that walk-in customers may be placed into a separate queue with lower priority upon arrival to the store, so arranging a pickup is recommended.

The new iPad Pro models received a minor spec bump, with new features including the M2 chip, Wi-Fi 6E support, new hover functionality for the Apple Pencil, ProRes video recording capability, Smart HDR 4, and Bluetooth 5.3. In the U.S., pricing continues to start at $799 for the 11-inch model and at $1,099 for the 12.9-inch model.

The redesigned 10th-generation iPad features a larger 10.9-inch display with slimmer bezels, flat edges, the A14 Bionic chip, a USB-C port, a Touch ID power button, a landscape-positioned FaceTime camera, 5G support on cellular models, Wi-Fi 6, new color options, and support for a new two-piece Magic Keyboard Folio accessory. Pricing starts at $449 in the U.S., while the ninth-generation 10.2-inch iPad remains available for $329.

Still can't get over the way the yellow model looks...

I guess I can hope for the next version of the mini has more colorful options...

Just checked out those new "cheap" iPads in a nearby Apple Store.
Man those bezels are THICC. Sure, not "top bottom bezel thicc" but still not great compared to iPad Pro.
Non-laminated display makes bezel look even thicker than it would be otherwise.
Also $700+ AUD for a 64GB 10th gen iPad is a LOT to swallow for a supposed to be "cheap" iPad.

Got my new iPad pro (The M1) on Monday and enjoying it so far. UK price increases and minimal spec bumps of the 2022 model, (especially any i would likely notice) made my mind up to go for the M1 whilst a good deal was to be had.

Don’t think anyone is excited about these iPads all they do is make the last generation worth more

I bet the lines are around the block for these.... 🤣
I remember when Apple used to introduce products worth waiting in line for.... at least I know when all of the regular Apple youtubers are mocking them for this release that I'm not the only one wondering why Tim Cook is still allowed to make product decisions. Maybe I'll go scroll through some App Store ads.

My iPad 12.9 2021 M1 is excellent. Anyone upgrading from M1 to M2 just to have the latest and greatest by all means go for it, but why?

More overkill if you don’t push the pro to the limit.

I wanted to upgrade my daughters 8th gen regular iPad for the new one, but the 10th gen is getting not too much praise. Maybe just get her the 9th gen and save some cash. I don’t know…..

Non-laminated display on the $500 model? No landscape front camera on the Pro? Storage options that cynically ladder you up to the base price of the next model? Yep, these are the iPads that convinced me to hang on to my current iPad (2016 iPad Pro 9.7) for another year.

Makes zero sense to buy this. Apple has the Air 4 in their refurbished store for $20 more.
