When the iPad Pro, Apple's latest version of their best-selling tablet was announced at the beginning of September, there wasn't really a specific release date.  Sure, we all knew that it would arrive sometime during the holiday shopping season, and it was just given a release date of "November".

When the iPad Pro, Apple's latest version of their best-selling tablet was announced at the beginning of September, there wasn't a specific release date.  Sure, we all knew that it would arrive sometime during the holiday shopping season, and it was just given a release date of "November".  In Apple's defense, it could have been vaguer, now here is everything known about the Apple iPad Pro Release Date, Specs, and Availability. 

Ubergizmo reports that Apple's large 12.9-inch tablet will be here sooner rather than later.  It will arrive this week as on Wednesday, November 11, 2015, the tablet will be available for ordering online.  The tablets should then make their way into stores this week, but there doesn't seem to be any specific date on that.  

The Verge reports that the new tablet will be available in over 40 countries including the United States, the United Kingdom, Japan, and China.  The November 11th availability date is perfect as this is also Singles Day in China, the world's largest online shopping day. 

The November 11th date will also be the same time that Apple will launch their Apple Pencil ($99) and iPad Smart Keyboard  ($169).  You had better believe that this is just in time for Apple's new tablet to compete with the Microsoft Surface Pro 4 and the Surface Book. 

The iPad Pro Release Date was one that was shrouded in a lot of mysteries, and it was a nightmare for retailers to get a date so they could promise customers that it would be available.  It was a safe bet that Apple would have it before Black Friday, but they tend to make their rules as to how and when to release their products. 

The iPad Pro has the tagline of Thin. Light. Epic, as stated on the Apple site.  It is just 6.9 mm thin and light at 1.57 pounds.  Not only is the screen one of the largest of its kind at 12.9 inches (2732 x 2048 resolution at 5.5 million pixels), but it has double the CPU performance of the iPad Air 2, along with some new Multi-Touch technology.  The people at Pixar recently gave it quite a lot of praise. 

Complete with a new A9X, it is a third-generation chip with 64-bit desktop-class architecture.  It also has four new high-fidelity speakers built directly into its unibody, and the tablet can automatically adjust the orientation of the high frequencies according to how the user is holding it.  The battery life clocks in at about 10 hours and the rear-facing camera is 8 Megapixel with a front-facing/Facetime with 1.2 Megapixels. 

The price of the iPad Pro will cost $799, and that is for about 32 GB of storage.  It is also possible to get 128 GB of storage and pay $949.  For mobile data connectivity, the iPad Pro with 128 GB of storage and 4G LTE support will cost $1,079.
