The much-anticipated Apple iPad Pro is now finally available for pre-orders. A couple of online retailers have started taking pre-orders at a $12 (£8, €11) discount and are suggesting its launch for 13 November.

Online retailer SamClub and authorised Apple reseller MacMall have started taking pre-orders for the Apple iPad Pro. Both are offering the discount on the official price that starts from $799. SamClub has listed the Wi-Fi only iPad Pro in 32GB and 128GB storage options, while MacMall is offering all the iPad Pro models, including the Wi-Fi only and LTE models. Shipments are initially limited to the US market as the launch schedule for other markets such as the UK and other European countries is yet to be revealed.

The 32GB iPad Pro Wi-Fi only model is available for pre-orders with a price tag of $787, whereas its 128GB counterpart is priced at $937. MacMall's listing shows that the 128GB iPad Pro Wi-Fi + Cellular model will be available for $1,067. All the models have Space Gray, silver and gold colour options.

Apart from the iPad Pro, MacMall has listed the Apple Pencil and Smart Keyboard that are designed especially for the new iPad model. The accessories are, however, expected to be shipped in four weeks.
