Price And Availability

Apple’s new iPad Pro models will be available to order on April 30 with shipping in the second half of May, while the Microsoft’s Surface Pro 7+ For Business is available now.

Making a direct comparison on prices between the two tablets is a bit of a challenge due to the differing screen sizes. The cheapest tablet in our comparison is the 11-inch iPad Pro, which starts at $799 with Wi-Fi-only. The Surface Pro 7+ For Business has a starting price of $899 for the Wi-Fi-only model. For the 12.9-inch iPad Pro, you’ll need to pay $1,099—while the Surface Pro 7+ For Business model supporting LTE Advanced is the priciest tablet in our comparison, starting at $1,149. New iPad Pro models that support cellular connectivity start at $200 higher than the Wi-Fi-only models—at $999 or $1,299.

Keep in mind that these prices do not include a keyboard or stylus. Prices vary depending on the keyboard model, but for the top-of-the-line keyboards—the Magic Keyboard for the iPad Pro and the Signature Type Cover for the Surface Pro 7+ For Business--the pricing is $299 and $160, respectively.
