So pretty much everyday since I sold my beloved Tab S 10.2 (long may its Super Ambled display live in my memory) i've been checking on the apple UK site to see if the iPad Pro page has updated with prices and every day...nothing, so i've pretty much started a guessing game with myself as to how much the prices will vary and my final estimates are as follow;

32gb iPad Pro £640-650 pretty much it's one of these two figures

128gb iPad Pro is a lot tougher to work out but based on other device prices it's safe to assume it could range anywhere between £760 and £800

Anyone else have any sure guesses/predictions/informed facts to put down?

128GB will be around £850 I think and 32GB probably be around £650. If you add the Apple Pencil and a case you are looking around £1,000

Think £650 for the 32gb is pretty accurate but would be very disappointed if the 128gb model is more than £800 as I expect that's the max price it should be judging by the US price of other items and their comparative UK price, if anything it should be a touch under £800 but £800 would be ok with me all things considered but 850 is not on.

Talking of, is there an actual price you would not go over for those who are planning on buying one?

The 38mm Stainless Steel Apple Watch with link bracelet is $949 in the US Store, the same price as the 128GB iPad Pro. The same watch is £819 in the UK store so I'd guess it will be priced within £20 either side of that figure.

I would not go over £1,000 for the iPad pro itself. I'm thinking it will cost around that with the Apple Pencil, smart case and cover.

Yeah sounds about right. Just crazy prices really. It’s tempting to buy the latest and greatest but even my 128GB air 2 only cost me £400 which is about right in terms of what to buy out for a tablet. I plan to upgrade the air line each year and £500 is the max to spend.

I am thinking £749, £849 and £949.

At the end of the day is the price really worth it when it will be very similar to the air 2 just not as fast and far bigger and does the pencil make it completely worth paying?

Not as fast? A9X is speedier than A8X, no doubt about that.

At the moment UK iPad Air 2 pricing is around 2.5% higher than US pricing (after VAT). The new iMacs are more like 3-4% higher on average (again after VAT), iPhone 6S looks like around 6-7% more expensive. The higher difference on the recent products probably due to the stronger dollar.

Guessing at a 5% increase the Pro would be £659, £779 and £889 incl. VAT

(All this using the exchange rate from Google today $1 = £0.65)

These predictions sound plausible;

"iPad Pro (32GB, Wi-Fi): £649 in the UK (based on the price of an 11in MacBook Air at $899) iPad Pro (128GB, Wi-Fi): £749 (based on the price of a 2.8GHz Mac mini at$999) iPad Pro (128GB, Wi-Fi and cellular): £849 in the UK (based on the price of the 11in 1.6GB MacBook Air at $,1099)."

32GB isn't enough for such a beast tablet, doesn't do it justice in my opinion. Unless you rely solely on the cloud streaming. Therefore 128GB is the only viable option in my eyes. I don't regret going for a refurbished Air 2 128GB at £479 now. I wouldn't want to spend £749 (the irony that the 4 and 7 just swapped places, haha).

Personally i'm debating whether to get the 32GB and have the 50GB iCloud storage at £0.79 a month, or just go all out and get the 128GB iPad Pro. I will be getting the Apple Pencil, mainly because i draw and also i want to see what it can do and how well it works. iCloud storage is cheap now, 50GB for £0.79 a month is great but also the 200GB for £2.49 a month also seems a good deal.

wow thats a higher price than i had thought, in that tweet they also mentioned that they are taking "orders" seems strange considering Apple haven't even announced pre-orders yet, maybe they just mean taking peoples interest in the devices.
Ah by that they mean reservations - they did it for the iPhone 6s as well, pay a deposit and they'll save you one on launch day. Worked fantastically for the 6S launch. But agree, the price is higher than I thought, it's not very far of the equivalent $ price!!

$100 equates to £80 inclusive of VAT. The 32Gb iPad Pro is $799, so this equates to £640, so it will be £649 in the UK. The 128GB WiFi model will be approx £760, I wonder if they will bring it down to £749 or increase it to £779? I think it will be £779.

So:

32Gb WiFi - £649
128Gb WiFi - £779
128Gb WiFi & Cellular - £899
