It seems that while the Apple Store was down today, Apple was doing a bit more than just adding its new phones. It also raised some prices.
In an unusual move for Apple, the prices of all of its iPad Pro models – both 10.5-inch and 12.9-inch models – were raised by $50. For instance, the 12.9-inch 256GB non-cellular model used to go for $899, but it will now set you back $949.
There’s no indication as to why Apple would do this, but the only logical conclusion is an increase in memory prices. Outlets such as Best Buy have already raised prices, but there are still some offers out there for the old prices. If you dig around on Amazon you can still find some as well.
If you were thinking about picking up an iPad Pro any time soon, the sooner the better it would seem before this price increase reaches every retailer.
