Apple has taken the wraps off its latest iPad Pro models and a new entry-level iPad, but along with that news, it quietly increased the price of every iPad available in Australia, and some accessories as well.

While higher pricing for new models has been par the course lately, it's more unusual to see a manufacturer put up the price for an older device after launch. We'd speculate the price increase is due to the weak Australian dollar.

iPad Pro

Here's what entry-level pricing for iPad family looks like now:

  • iPad Pro 11-inch: Starts at $1,399, previous generation started at $1,199
  • iPad Pro 12.9-inch: Starts at $1,899, previous generation started at $1,649
  • iPad Air: Now starts at $999, was previously $929
  • iPad mini: Now starts at $829, was previously $749
  • iPad (10th gen): Starts at $749
  • iPad (9th gen): Starts at $549, was previously $499

Accessories have gotten more expensive too.

  • 2nd gen Apple Pencil: Now $219, was $199
  • 1st gen Apple Pencil: Now $159, was $145
  • Magic Keyboard: Now starts at $489, was $449

Some retailers such as JB Hi-Fi and The Good Guys still have the 9th gen iPad, iPad mini, and iPad Air available for their previous prices. If you were on the fence about getting one of these devices, getting in before these retailers mirror Apple's price might not be the worst idea.
