Apple listens to user storage demands, brings 256GB option to iPad Pro models

Apple’s got a new tablet it’s introducing today, announcing the 9.7-inch edition of the iPad Pro. And while this model’s the highlight of the company’s tablet news today, giving users all the power of the full-sized iPad Pro in a much more compact package, we’re also learning about an important refresh to the existing 12.9-inch model.

With the new 9.7-inch iPad Pro, Apple’s giving users the option to configure their tablets with a whopping 256GB of solid state storage.

That’s well and good for someone who likes what they’re hearing about iPad Pro power in a more manageable form factor, but what about those of us who appreciated the larger worker surface the original iPad Pro afforded us?

Worry not, as Apple’s also introducing a new SKU for the 12.9-inch iPad Pro, making sure the 256GB storage option is available for both iPad Pro sizes. Just as with the 9.7-inch model, moving up to 256GB will cost users $150 more than the 128GB iPad Pro – so for the 12.9-incher, that means nearly $1100. Add on the Apple Pencil and a Smart Keyboard, and you’re looking at ever more cash – but also a top-of-the-line tablet setup that’s going to be hard to beat for some time to come.
