Apple's flagship 2015 series tablet iPad Pro has been released in the Indian market.
Apple iPad Pro was speculated to hit stores in India in January, but the company has reportedly advanced the launch date, so the iPad Pro can get a head start over rival Microsoft's Surface Pro 4 tablet, which is scheduled to set foot in the country next month.
Though Apple has not officially confirmed the availability of iPad Pro in India, the company's authorised retailer Imagine's sales executive affirmed IBTimes India that they are selling the tablet in New Delhi with prices starting from Rs 67,900.
However, iPad Pro's accessories Apple Pencil (rechargeable via Light port) and Smart Keyboard (charcoal gray) are expected to hit the stores next week with price-tags of Rs 8,600 and Rs 14,900, respectively.
For the uninitiated, Apple iPad Pro sports a massive 12.9-inch display with 2732x1048p resolution display. Under the hood, it comes packed with the company's proprietary 3rd-generation Apple A9X processor, which is said to be 2.5 times faster than the A7 processor.
It is backed by an M9 motion co-processor, which takes care of smaller functions, to take some load off the main CPU.
