The new iPad Pro has just been released for 2020 and we’re here to show you where to buy it, how much you should pay, and any deals to be had on Apple’s most advanced range of tablets yet.
Two brand new Apple iPad Pros for 2020 have just come flying off the presses from Apple this month, replacing the venerable Pad Pro 11 and iPad Pro 12.9 models from 2018. These new entries come packed with a range of upgraded specs and features that we’ll summarize here and are available directly from Apple and a number of other retailers this week.

Many retailers are now following suit with a whole range of new iPad pro deals, BHPhoto and Adorama have put up offers this past week so check out the prices below and be sure to visit their sites. Note – Apple is only offering their orders directly from their websites right now, as their physical stores remain closed due to the ongoing coronavirus situation.

New iPad Pro 2020: Specs and features
These iPads come with a selection of storage sizes (128, 256, 512GB, and 1TB) and in two colors (Silver, Space Gray). All variations and sizes feature the brand new Liquid retina display and A12Z Bionic chip – which the company claims is excellent for “editing 4K video or designing 3D models”.
If you go for the 11-inch screen, you’ll get yourself a 2388 x 1668 resolution, while the bigger 12.9-inch model has 2732 x 2048 standard. Both screen sizes offer 264 pixels per inch and a rapid 120HZ refresh rate, which should provide a smoother viewing experience when scrolling or watching over the normal 90HZ rate.
These iPads are also the first to feature two rear cameras and the new LiDAR Scanner – which aim to improve depth-sensing capabilities for portraiture and improved augmented reality app support. The cameras will also handle 4K – if you want to shoot footage directly from the iPad itself for ease of use.
Software-wise these new 2020 iPad Pros come with the latest iPadOS 13.4 and can, of course, be expected to be supported with the latest upgrades from Apple for many years to come. iPadOS 13.4 specifically comes with trackpad-like support, which Apple claims will enable more fluid switching between apps.
What about older Apple iPad Pro prices?
A new iPad launch is also great news if you’re looking for something a little older – specifically the last generation models, which are sure to have some nice little price drops to make way for the newer, shinier offerings.
When looking at iPad Pros, you should definitely consider the 2018 iPad Pro 11 and iPad Pro 12.9. At their current price, you can hope to save around $50 / £50, depending on your country and which retailer you go for. These iPads are still great buys, despite being a little older, as they still retain top of the line specs and components under the hood.
