Does anyone really need 1TB of storage?

Apple quietly changed the pricing on its most expensive models of the 12.9-inch and 11-inch iPad Pro yesterday while everyone else was drooling at the iPhone 11’s price tag.

Customers in the market for the 1TB storage option on either iPad Pro now get $200 off the original prices — but they remain far from cheap.

The 12.9-inch iPad Pro with 1TB of storage now costs $1,549, while the 11-inch iPad Pro with 1TB of storage runs $1,349. Adding LTE adds an extra $150 to the cost.

Given the high baseline price of the iPad Pro, it’s hard to think that many people splurged on the 1TB model. This week’s price cuts could make them a bit more attractive to professionals. I personally work from a 512GB iPad Pro and have barely used a quarter of the storage available. I don’t think I’d ever be able to fill 1TB iPad, even if i tried.

Pricing on the 64GB, 256BG and 512GB models remains the same. Apple’s cheapest iPad Pro is the 11-inch iPad Pro with 64GB, which starts at $799.

Rumors indicate that Apple might come out with new iPad Pros before the end of the year. Likely upgrades could include improved Face ID, an A13 processor, new cameras, a U1 chip and maybe a Super Retina XDR display.
