iPad Pro (2018) launch date in India has been revealed, thanks to two Apple premium resellers in India.

In the end, the 12-inch iPad Pro teardown is nearly exactly the same as the 11-inch model. While the entry level 11-inch model will retail for Rs 71,900, the 12.9-inch option will bear a price tag of Rs 89,900. Both the variants of the latest iPad Pro will come enabled with Wi-Fi and Wi-Fi+ Cellular as a connectivity option.

Both the models of iPad Pro (2018) with 11-inch and 12.9-inch screen will retail in the variants of 256GB, 512GB, and 1TB storage. Both the stores are also listing launch offers with up to 5 percent cashback on EMI via Citi credit cards and Axis Bank, apart from no-cost EMIs from Bajaj Finserv. Today, iFixit is taking a look inside the 12.9-inch iPad Pro, and if you were hoping for a different outcome, we're sorry to say that you're probably going to be disappointed.

As for the pricing, the iPad Pro 11-inch Wi-Fi only will carry a price tag of Rs 71,900 for the 64GB variant, Rs 85,900 for the 256GB storage variant, Rs 1,03,900 for 512GB variant and Rs 1,39,900 for the 1TB variant. The new 12.9-inch model is smaller than last year's variant.

The new iPad Pro comes in two display sizes: 12.9-inch and 11-inches, and Apple has added the edge-to-edge Liquid Retina display on both.

Burnout claims continue as Novak Djokovic beats Alexander Zverev at ATP finals
The Croat's defeat by Zverev - a repeat of his loss to the German 12 months ago - means he is 1-9 for the tournament. But Cilic took the next two to win 6-7 (2), 6-3 and 6-4 in two hours and 14 minutes, reports Efe nws.

Luckily, the good people at iFixit have fought through gobs of glue to fully tear down the 11-inch version of the Pro, so we don't have to do it ourselves. With bezels thinner than ever and the Home button absent, it feels as if not an inch of space has been wasted.

The all-new iPad Pro models are powered by the company's latest in-house Apple A12X Bionic 7nm SoC. Both have the same pixel density though at 264 ppi. The SoC has an 8-core CPU and a 7-core GPU, the latter offers 2x the graphics performance compared to last year's Apple A11X. A12X allows for advanced neural networking functions, which can support AR apps, AI-related tasks and more. Face ID brings support for Animoji and Memoji, and it works in both portrait and landscape mode, unlike the iPhone models.

The iPad Pro now has a 12MP rear camera and 7MP TrueDepth front camera like the iPhone series.

The new USB-C port is also easier to replace since it is not soldered to the logic board.

As expected, this new iPad Pro isn't meant to be repaired by Apple customers, as it's hard to open, but iFixit did present some interesting discoveries.
