The Wi-Fi only 32GB model is priced at Rs 28,000, whereas the 128GB storage variant is priced at Rs 37,500. The other big highlight of the new 9.7-inch iPad (2018) is that it will be the first non-iPad Pro to support the Apple Pencil, which is an optional accessory that will cost Rs 7600. Now, the device is available for pre-order on Flipkart. Axis Bank Buzz credit card users can get an extra five percent discount (maximum of Rs 200).
That's it really, except to say that pricing for the two devices remains the same, unless you're at school - one of us lucky folk what live here in the United Kingdom, where Apple is treating us to a £20 price cut, with new 2018 iPad models starting from £319 compared to last year's £339 RRP.

The Apple Pencil will be available for purchase separately at Rs. 7,600. Where Android phone makers pick out "off the shelf" components, Apple is able to provide you with software support on all its products for a considerably long period. The new iPad is also compatible with all kinds of Bluetooth keyboards. There is also the Apple A10 Fusion SoC, which is a significant upgrade over the Apple A9 SoC that powered last year's iPad.
