Apple's iPad Pro arrives in South Korea, Taiwan & Philippines
The iPad Pro on Thursday launched in South Korea, Taiwan, and the Philippines, as part of a slow expansion of sales beyond the product's initial 40 markets.
All Wi-Fi and cellular models should be available. Prices start at 999,000 won ($859) in South Korea, 42,990 peso ($914) in the Philippines, and NT$27,900 ($851 U.S.) in Taiwan. Back in Apple's home country, the tablet starts at $799 for a 32-gigabyte Wi-Fi model without accessories like an Apple Pencil or a Smart Keyboard.
The Pro is only available through resellers and Apple's online store in the new countries, as they lack any physical Apple Stores.
Although the product is already in China, Germany, and other major markets, many coverage gaps remain including countries like India and Israel. In those places Apple has only promised that the tablet is "coming soon."
At Apple's U.S. online store, shipping delays for the Pro are still significant. The site shows Dec. 11 as the fastest possible delivery date.
