Apple has also launched two new accessories for the iPad Pro, the Apple Pencil, and Smart Keyboard. Apple Pencil, the company’s new stylus, that will work perfectly with the brand new iPad Pro, which boasts a wide-range of features, including the ability to register tilt, pressure, and the speed of a stroke while using the stylus on the display. Smart Keyboard for the iPad Pro is a full-sized keyboard which attaches to iPad Pro’s smart connector port, which transfers data and power to the Smart Keyboard, letting users slide the keyboard into place and lock it there. The new keyboard is made from a woven fabric, including the keys. Inside, there’s the new Apple “dome switch,” which the company made famous in its 12-inch MacBook. Apple Pencil is available for $99, and Smart Keyboard will be available in charcoal gray for $169.
You can also buy Smart Covers for iPad Pro, which are available for $59, or Silicone cases for $79. The Smart Covers and the Silicone cases are available in charcoal gray and white.
You can buy iPad Pro and its accessories on Apple’s website or via the Apple Store app (iTunes link). iPad Pro will also be available at Apple’s retail stores, select carriers, and Apple Authorized Resellers later this week.
Tip: Based on past experience, the most reliable way to pre-order a new iPhone is to use the Apple Store app, though we doubt the demand for the iPad Pro will bring Apple’s website down.
Apple’s website still says “Available November” but check the Apple Store app. I just pre-ordered the Space Gray iPad Pro with the delivery date of November 13. The shipping estimates for Apple Pencil and Smart Keyboard is November 19th – 23rd, and the Silicon case is November 13.
