Apple’s “Let Us Loop You In” event, which will allegedly reveal several new additions to Apple’s lineup of hardware, will take place this upcoming Monday. The event will likely see the introduction of a new 4-inch iPhone, tentatively titled the iPhone SE, as well as a new 9.7-inch iPad Pro. While it is believed that many of the new iPad Pro’s features have already been exposed, one detail has avoided discovery by the internet – until now, that is.
A new report by Mark Gurman of 9to5Mac revealed the pricing and storage options of the upcoming device. According to Gurman, the entry-level model of the 9.7-inch iPad Pro will start at $599, $100 more expensive than the base level price of any other iPad at release.
However, the base model, which is Wi-Fi only, will feature 32GB of storage, double that of the base model iPad Air 2. An upgraded model, which will feature LTE connectivity and 128GB of storage, will also be available. However, a price for the upgraded model is not yet known.
The new iPad Pro will include many of the same features as the 12.9-inch iPad Pro introduced last September. The device will run on the same A9X chip, and will feature the same four-speaker stereo design and Smart Connector for connecting accessories as the 12.9-inch model. The new device will reportedly feature a 12-megapixel camera capable of 4K video recording – an upgrade over the 8-megapixel camera in the previous iteration.
Apple’s “Let Us Loop You In Event” will take place at Apple’s Town Hall in Cupertino, California on March 21st. The event will begin at 10AM PT, and will also likely feature the introduction of the iPhone SE, as well as several new bands for the Apple Watch.
