    I'd posted a thread about the lack of sales and how it was the missing piece tipping off the new iPad release. Here's a sale, although it's very late. Might indicate that the new models won't launch for a while after the announcement.

    I want the new Ipad and have since March. How much longer can they make us wait?

    I could see launch day being as late as November 15, I believe that's when the first iPad Pro launched. I have a feeling it'll be sooner this time though, because they're doing an event separate from the September event.

    They can’t launch before the 7th because of cases. The 2nd would be a Hail Mary at best.

    Cases? I haven’t seen many yet, usually by now there would be some out there. When I bought the 10.5 I had two or three cases waiting.

    Good point!

    Cases? Apple is moving away from cases (in some areas). iPhone XR, iPad Pro 10.5 (back cover).

    Apple May be but there are tons of folks who sell them like crazy.

    Anybody seen any yet?

    Exactly. I'm sure the sale is related to the event on the 30th. But this kind of sale is not that uncommon.

    Yeah I wouldn't make too much of this sale its a common thing for Best Buy, every so often they have an apple event sale, sales off of ipads, watches, iphones, macbooks, its just what they do

    If they were $250-300 off, then that would be a decent sale considering new models are imminent.

    I got an open box for 500. I won’t have the cash for a new one, so with this being the same price as the air1... I’m so happy with it. I’ve been waiting for this sale for so long. I love my 10.5!

    It’d honestly such a steal at this price. Essentially a MacBook. Trying to find a good keyboard case, I’ve read the apple ones have some problems with the smart connector.

    They had a much better deal 1 1/2 months ago... and should have a better one next week or a killer one the week after. I'm told my mum to hold off until then.


    Kallum.

    I’m seeing quite a few different iPad Pro models as “unavailable” at quite a few Apple stores here in the Chicagoland area. Hopefully that indicates more of a sooner rather than later release date. Can’t come soon enough, regardless.

    And..... the sale appears to be over. Good thing too; I was tempted to “upgrade” from my 9.7 Pro.

    $100 off the iPad Pro is not such a hot deal. Yes, $100 off is nothing to sneeze at, but a far cry from the $175 off that Best buy and Staples had back in the day WITHOUT a new model just days away.

    If you are able to wait 6-8 weeks, you'll be able to get the new iPad Pros for at least $100 off.

    Agreed - prices will come down, maybe even starting tomorrow, if the new iPads are announced tomorrow.
