The iPad Pro from Apple was launched earlier in other countries and the Philippines is one of those which was scheduled to get the 12.9-inch tablet at a later date. However, just today, Apple’s website for the Philippines has already revealed the pricing details of the iPad Pro, albeit the page says “pending regulatory approval”. This means that you cannot yet purchase the iPad Pro, at least from Apple’s online store, but I suggest you check the physical retailers like Power Mac Center, iStudio or Beyond the Box as they might already have iPad Pro stocks on hand.
So how much is the iPad Pro in the Philippines? The price tag is Php43,990 for the cheapest configuration, which will get you a Wi-Fi-only iPad Pro with 32GB storage capacity. The higher configuration bumps up the storage to 128GB but will set you back Php50,990. There is only one cellular model priced at Php57,990 which comes with 128GB internal storage.
The above prices do not include the accessories yet. An iPad Pro without a Smart Keyboard or an Apple Pencil seems incomplete and limited. If you want to get the Smart Keyboard, be ready to shell out another Php8,990. The Apple Pencil, on the other hand, retails for Php5,190.

Are you interested in the iPad Pro? Reviews from tech sites are generally positive, although the consensus is that the iPad Pro cannot replace the laptop, contrary to what Apple claims. Considering that the iPad Pro runs on iOS, it definitely cannot take the place of something that runs Windows, or Mac OS for that matter.
