No cost EMI is also being offered on Bajaj Finserv. The former costs INR 10,900 in India, whereas the latter costs INR 15,900 and INR 17,900 for the 11-inch and 12.9-inch models respectively.

Apple is introducing four storage options with the new iPad Pro which are 64GB, 256GB, 512GB and 1TB.

Overall, Apple has made certain decisions which make it easier to carry out in-house repairs on the 2018 11-inch iPad Pro. The new iPad Pro can work with the new Apple Pencil as well as the Apple Smart Keyboard Folio.

Both Maple and Unicorn are offering 5 per cent cashback on EMI for Citi Credit cards and Axis Bank card holders. Both say effective monthly cost (EMC) starts at Rs. 3,183.

The new iPad Pro comes in two display sizes: 12.9-inch and 11-inches, and Apple has added the edge-to-edge Liquid Retina display on both.

The latest Apple iPad Pro 11-inch and 12.9-inch variant's sale will go live starting November 16 this year.

iFixit's teardown of the 12.9-inch iPad Pro actually comes in video form, which you can see embedded below. The refresh rates on both the screens are 120Hz, and the thickness of both the models is nearly 5.9mm. While the 11-inch iPad Pro offers a screen resolution of 2388 x 1688, the 12.9-inch variant offers a screen resolution of 2732 x 2048. The SoC has an 8-core CPU and a 7-core GPU, the latter offers 2x the graphics performance compared to last year's Apple A11X. Not only that, but the new chipset also boasts of more than 10 billion transistors. The iPad Pro now comes with up to 1TB of inbuilt storage. This neural engine is said to help the iPad Pro in implementing applications with Machine Learning.

There are no big surprises in terms of components used: There's that super-fast Apple A12X Bionic chip, 64GB of Toshiba flash storage, and 4GB of RAM.

For the WiFi+Cellular variant, the 64GB base variant of the iPad Pro with 11-inch display will start at Rs 85,900. At least the new USB-C port, which replaced Apple's proprietary Lightning port, is modular and easy to replace.

As expected, this new iPad Pro isn't meant to be repaired by Apple customers, as it's hard to open, but iFixit did present some interesting discoveries.

It's noteworthy that the new iPad Pro does not come with a 3.5mm headphone jack and there is also no Type-C to 3.5mm dongle in the box. Additionally, the iPad Pro can act as a power bank and charge your iPhone using a USB Type-C to Lighting cable. For imaging, the iPad Pro makes use of a 12MP rear camera and a 7MP TrueDepth front camera.
