Don’t know if it’s worth it or not but nevertheless bit the bullet to get the 11” iPad Pro at 13% discount while other models are only at 4% discount. It’s also the model which I wanted.








The 1 TB is out of stock. A bit heart pain but oh well.

I noticed some sellers on carousell are selling brand new US sets for much cheaper prices. I'm assuming they are grey sets, although they all claimed it has international warranty. Found one selling 1TB cellular + wifi model for $1.6k (11 inch).

Is it worth getting grey set in this case? I've read up there are issues with ipad's international warranty, in which the local stores wont adhere or acknowledge it.

I saw 1.8k

It’s international warranty. If your iPad Pro got issue, you still can go apple store for serving. But you won’t get replacement set immediately like the local set. Apple will ship back your iPad to US and they will bring it to SG.

For cellular wise they may have special tuning. I not sure though. US and SG uses different bands.

I also got my 11” Pro at my company’s staff rate, but not much (64GB wifi model). Enjoying it to bits now.

Oh man. So it's still better to get local set? Then I think I'll just wait for March. See if they release the new ipad.

For me I prefer local sets. And yes it’s better to get local set too. Not to mention if your iPad got issue high chance is 1 to 1 exchange immediately if they have stock.

Snow eagle and My iPad Pro 10.5” we did a 1 to 1 exchange before.

If not urgent can wait then wait. I bought it cause I have the 12.9” iPad Pro 2018 and it’s quite heavy to bring out, scared will bend so I will want to get the 11” one. I don’t really take picture on iPad and the A12X is sufficient enough for my games without any lag.

Oh man. So it's still better to get local set? Then I think I'll just wait for March. See if they release the new ipad.

Oh ya does your iPad Pro have bending issue? When you bring go out?

Can’t remember which model has the bending issue. If I not mistaken is the 12.9” one

I also got my 11” Pro at my company’s staff rate, but not much (64GB wifi model). Enjoying it to bits now.

Comes with US plug. But the price difference I got myself the pencil, Logitech folio and Apple care. So it’s worth it
Can I ask how did you ship it in? I'm considering also 😅

No bending issues. My iPad Pro is immediately placed inside Logitech’s slim folio pro case after getting the screen protector installed.
