Repairing the iPad Pro 2021, which is not covered by the 12.9-inch warranty, costs $ 699 when upgraded iPad maintenance and repair schedule noticed MacRumors.
This is $ 50 more than the repair fee for the previous model. The repair fee has presumably increased since the fifth generation 12.9-inch iPad Pro
is a new mini-LED powered Liquid Retina XDR display.
This fee is charged for accidental damage, even if the device has been used for less than a year, unless you have AppleCare +. If the problem is due to a manufacturing defect, it is covered by the original one-year warranty.
Payments have not changed for the new 11-inch model, which retains a liquid Retina LCD screen, and the repair will cost $ 499 without AppleCare +. The AppleCare + service fee is $ 49 for both models. Apple will charge $ 149 for two years AppleCare +. If you receive a $ 7.99 order, it will cover the entire life of the device.
Other wonders of the 12.9-inch iPad Pro’s mini-LED technology
Mini-LED technology offers more information, better contrast ratios and brighter colors, but there are some trade-offs involved. For example, it has made a new 12.9 inch iPad Pro
slightly thicker, which means the original Magic keyboard there is no exact fit
and you’ll probably need to get a new one that costs $ 349. The mini-LED slate starts at $ 1,099.
Mini-LED displays are also more difficult to produce than LCD panels, and this is expected to lead to a shortage of supply. Delivery estimates for the 12.9-inch model are already slipping
to July. An 11-inch version is likely to begin shipping May 21
. Pre-orders opened on April 30th.
