Survey says iPad Pro Anticipation is off the Charts

Apple announced the all-new iPad Pro, featuring a 12.9-inch Retina display with 5.6 million pixels and the new 64-bit A9X chip in September. Apple will start selling the iPad Pro reportedly on November 11. The iPad Pro is thin and light and provides all-day battery life. Apple will start selling the iPad Pro in November.

Will there be a shortage of the new iPad Pro at launch? Recent reports from Asian supply chain said that Apple has ordered 2.5 million iPad Pro units for 2015. With iPad sales down again last quarter by 19.5%, it makes sense that Apple is conservative about the iPad Pro. The key question about the iPad Pro is if consumers and not just professionals want the iPad Pro. 

iPad Pro survey

A new survey from Retale tried to answer this question. The company surveyed 500 Apple users and their response was overwhelmingly positive towards the iPad Pro. 75% are excited about the iPad Pro and can't wait to try it out in stores. 

The surveyed Apple users are also excited about the Apple Pencil. 68% want to try it out as soon as it comes out.

Almost all surveyed will first want to try the iPad Pro before they make the buy decision. 87% said that they test electronics before the buy them.

If consumers want a larger iPad as they did want the larger iPhone, than the demand could be higher than the iPad Pro supply this holiday season. The iPad Pro is expensive. It starts at $799 and the pencil is an extra $99. If consumers decide that it is a must have, this price will not stop them.

The iPad Pro is the fastest iOS device and added several enhancements not found on the iPad Air 2. While the iPad Air and iPad mini will be offered at steep discounts in Black Friday sales, the iPad Pro will not be on sale anywhere.

The target market of the iPad Pro are professionals that use the large tablet for their job. With Apple fans are are though unpredictable when Apple launches an all-new product.

Apple as still not revealed when the iPad Pro will go on sale. Do you plan on buying the iPad Pro? Cast your answer in the poll below.
