Some iPad Pro models just got more expensive

Apple has quietly increased the prices of its 256GB and 512GB versions of the iPad Pro.

Apple sneakily hiked the price of some iPad Pro models, following the iPhone launch event on Tuesday.

The 256GB Wi-Fi 10.5-inch iPad Pro, which launched at £709 in the United Kingdom, now costs £769. The 512GB 10.5-inch model jumps to $999 (up from $949).

Perhaps Apple is having to pay more for the components for the iPad Pro models and passing that on to the consumer?

The Firm rents a range of construction and industrial equipment across a range of applications to a diverse customer base. M&T Comml Bank Corp holds 0% of its portfolio in Surgical Innovations Group Plc (LON:SUN) for 12,396 shares.

MacRumors reports that certain retailers like Best Buy have already revised their pricing for the higher-capacity models to reflect these changes.

Apple's CFO Luca Maestri mentioned a "cost pressure" from memory in the company's second quarter earnings call, with the iPad Pro the first of Apple's gadgets to take the brunt of price that pressure. According to The Verge, worldwide pricing on the iPad Pro has also gone up. If you're interested in a cellular iPad Pro, you'll need to add a further $130 in each case.

Lost amid all the excitement and discussion surrounding Apple's new iPhone X and Apple Watch Series 3 was a price hike that has many industry watchers scratching their heads.

Why do you think Apple is raising the price on existing products?
