Sure, we’re expecting a refresh on iPad Pros at some point in this fall, but the current 11-inch and 12.9-inch versions will fully support iPadOS 13 when it drops. The base 64 GB 11-inch iPad Pro is just $674.99, down from $799.99. The base 12.9-inch iPad Pro with 64 GB and Wi-Fi is just $849.99, down from $999.99.

Either the 11-inch or 12.9-inch iPad Pros feature Face ID for easy unlocking and security. Not to mention that 7.0 megapixel TrueDepth camera is great for FaceTiming. Plus, these are powered by Apple’s A12X Bionic chip, which makes for a zippy experience. Of course, these both support the second Generation Apple Pencil.

Here are the discounted models, and yes, you’ll notice that Amazon.com is matching some of these prices.
