iPad Pro 2018: South African pricing

The new iPad Pro

The new iPad Pro models have been launched in South Africa, and thanks to a weak rand, coupled with Apple’s higher selling prices, they’re anything but cheap.

The lowest-cost model in the new line-up is the 11-inch 64GB Wi-Fi-only version, which fetches R13 999, according to pricing from Core Group-owned retailer, the iStore.

Those wanting the top-end model — the 12.9-inch Wi-Fi and cellular model with 1TB of storage — will have to cough up a whopping R33 999 (basically the price of a high-end laptop computer).

The full pricing of the models currently available in South Africa is listed below:

  • 11-inch 64GB Wi-Fi: R13 999
  • 11-inch 256GB Wi-Fi: R16 999
  • 11-inch 512GB Wi-Fi: R20 599
  • 11-inch 1TB Wi-Fi: R27 799
  • 12.9-inch 64GB Wi-Fi: R17 899
  • 12.9-inch 256GB Wi-Fi: R20 599
  • 12.9-inch 512GB Wi-Fi: R24 199

The second-generation Apple Pencil fetches R2 499, up R500 from the first-generation model.

At the same time, the iStore has released pricing for the new MacBook Air. A 128GB Core i5 model costs R21 499, while a 256GB model with the same processor costs R24 999.

The new Mac mini starts at R13 999, the iStore said.

It’s going to be an expensive Christmas for Apple fans. — (c) 2018 NewsCentral Media
