The iPad Pro should be right around the corner now that the fourth-generation Apple TV is officially available. Some rumors are pointing to a November 11 launch, but nothing has been officially confirmed. We do know that the iPad Pro is slated for a November release and that it is time to start preparing for its arrival. First you must consider if you're going to ditch your old 9.7-inch iPad for the more powerful 12.9-inch version. If have already made up your mind and plan to pre-order an iPad Pro, then here are some case and keyboard case options for you to consider.
The iPad Pro is rumored to be launching around November 11, which means it is time to decide if you want to trade in your old 9.7-inch iPad for a new 12.9-inch tablet. It makes sense to upgrade to the iPad Pro if you already have a larger iPhone 6 or 6s model and want a new iPad that isn't the iPad mini 4. The larger screens of the iPhone 6 models are a good alternative to the 7.9-inch mini, and the iPad Pro is Apple's fastest and most powerful device with its A9X processor and 4GB of RAM.
The iPad Pro is also very expensive starting at $799 for the WiFi-only model. You will probably want to try and sell your old device if you do decide to upgrade. There are several ways to sell your used iPad model, such as eBay, or you can check rates for electronics resellers like Nextworth or Gazelle.
