New iPad Pro 2021 preorders are now officially live at Apple sites worldwide! Other retailers have also launched their sales pages with preorders for both capacities, giving you plenty of choice in regards to which store you pick it up from. It may be worth considering other retailers too because a number of new iPad Pro 2021 preorders have already generated a lot of interest at Apple itself, pushing back the delivery date on many items...

Of course, it's still early days, but these new premium Apple tablets are bringing a ton of great upgrades (M1 chip, 5G connectivity) to the table and it's looking like they're really popular so far. Right now, stock is still available at Apple stores worldwide, but we'd definitely put your order in sooner rather than later if you're interested.

Currently, most new iPad Pro 2021 preorders are penciled in for a May 24th delivery date at the official Apple store, although some of the more popular models - the 12.9-inch models in particular - are looking like they'll be delivered as late as July. We've included the latest dates just down below as well as links to other retailers which still have plenty of stock for an earlier date. Many of these retailers are heavily featured in our weekly best iPad deals roundup, although there are not many price cuts available just yet as you'd imagine.

If you're not up to speed with the latest details on these New iPad Pro (2021) tablets, you'll also find a quick overview of the specs, features, and key upgrades versus last year's models. Speaking of which, some of these older models are unsurprisingly being discounted to their lowest prices ever right now. If you're interested in getting a bargain, or just want to compare them to the new iPad Pro 2021 preorders, then you can find these iPad deals at the bottom of the page. 

New iPad Pro 2021 preorders: where to buy
Currently, certain iPad Pro 2021 models with specific colors and storage capacities are selling in high quantities than others. So far, it's looking like the 12-9-inch models are the most popular, and, although Apple hasn't sold out of preorders yet per se, it is pushing back delivery dates further and further on certain models. Just below you can see the current stock levels and delivery date situation.

As expected, the new iPad Pro (2021) has launched at a number of leading retailers for the standard launch price. There are no price cuts just yet, although some retailers are indeed offering rebates if you trade in an older device right now. Verizon in particular is offering a $100 trade-in saving, plus the option to save an additional $250 if you buy a tablet in conjunction with an iPhone.

Release date prices on the iPad Pro range are as follows. Interestingly the 2021 iPad Pro 11 is retailing for the same base price as last year's model, while the 2021 iPad Pro 12.9 is retailing for about $100 / £30 more (due to the new screen upgrade, most likely). The higher capacity storage models are ever-so-slightly more expensive as well.

iPad Pro 11-inch (2021)
128GB - $799 / £749
256GB - $899 / £849
512GB - $1099 / £1049
1TB - $1499 / £1399
2TB - $1899 / £1729
iPad Pro 12.9-inch (2021)
128GB - $1099 / £999
256GB - $1199 / £1099
512GB - $1399 / £1299
1TB - $1799 / £1649
2TB - $2199 / £1999
It's worth mentioning that these are just starting prices for the Wi-Fi only models, if you want to include the option for cellular capabilities then you'll be spending an extra $200 / £150 on top of the above asking prices.

When will we see price cuts on the new iPad Pro?
The first round of discounts on the new iPad Pro 2021 will be heavily dependent on how much demand there is for these tablets on release. With last year's iPad Pro 2020 we didn't see many deals for quite some time - up to two months in fact - and there weren't any significant discounts until November, during Black Friday. Because of this, it's quite hard to gauge exactly when we'll be seeing discounts on these new releases, although it's safe to say it won't be during the initial first wave of stock at most retailers.

The new Apple iPad Pro 2021 comes in a selection of storage sizes (128, 256, 512GB, 1TB, and the new 2TB) and two colors at launch (Silver, Space Gray). On the outside, the aesthetic hasn't changed too much, keeping with the more 'squared off' design of the previous generation. Inside, however, the iPad Pro 2021 is absolutely packed to the brim with new tech.

The much-heralded Apple M1 chip, a processor only previously seen on MacBooks, has now been squished into these latest tablets. Put simply, that means a lot more power on tap here and a performance increase of upwards of 50% if Apple's press statements are to be believed. Another fantastic upgrade is the USB-C port from last year's model has now been fully upgraded to support Thunderbolt - which means much, much speedier file transfers overall.

Other key upgrades are the inclusion of 5G connectivity on the LTE models - an expected but much welcome addition, a new ultrawide front camera on both models, and an upgraded Liquid Retina XDR display on the 12.9-inch model. Apple has made a lot of fanfare about this latest mini-LED display, especially its incredible brightness and contrast, and it's definitely looking like a designer's dream indeed.

Software-wise these new 2020 iPad Pros come with the latest iPadOS 14 and can, of course, be expected to be supported with the latest upgrades from Apple for many years to come. 

What about older Apple iPad Pro prices?
While it's easy to get carried away with the shiny new products during a new Apple launch it's also a fantastic time to be checking out the (now) older models in the range. Just last year saw the release of a powerful set of iPad Pro's, which, while older now, are still very slick tablets indeed.

Thanks to the release of the latest iteration, we're now seeing the 2020 iPad Pro's receive price cuts of around $120 / £120 on the basic 128GB 11-inch model, and even bigger discounts on the bigger capacity variants. This is the lowest price yet on these tablets and makes them a pretty tempting offer all around. Of course, they don't have that fancy M1 chip inside, but they're still rocking gorgeous screens and look identical to the latest models on the outside. 

Another pretty good choice is the iPad Air 4 - which is the latest mid-range tablet from Apple. This one's a newer model, so iPad deals aren't quite as forthcoming at the moment, but it often retails for about $559 / £515 which can make a very good option indeed. The latest iPad Air 4 is definitely more premium than the previous entries in the Air series too, which yet again makes it a good choice.
