In some nations, it was far from "modest." According to Nukeni, which collated the 2021 iPad Pro costs throughout the world, the lowest variants are accessible in the United States and Hong Kong, while the most expensive models are available in Sweden and Brazil. The UK has a range of prices, with the base model costing £539 and the top-of-the-range model priced at £729.
For comparison, the least expensive variant of the iPad Air 2 is priced at $500 while the most expensive one costs $770. The entry-level model of the 12-inch MacBook costs $1,079 while the high-end version can be purchased for $1,749.
The global pricing chart below shows the cost of each model of the iPad across 152 countries. The United States is by far the most expensive country in the list, with the price of an iPad averaging $829. New Zealand is the only other country where the base model is less than $400, but even there, the cost of an iPad is more than $550.
All things considered, the worldwide pricing of the iPad suggests that it isn't as affordable as it appears at first glance. However, if we exclude the most expensive models then the picture changes completely.

Apple iPad Pro 11-inch What will be the greatest iPad in 2021? The Apple iPad Pro 11in (from PS769) is our pick for the greatest iPad available. It's powerful, packed with cutting-edge technology, has the greatest accessories, and falls between between being a fantastic tablet and a decent laptop replacement.
If you want a cheaper option, the Apple iPad Air 3rd Generation (from PS549) is also a good choice. It has most of the features of the iPad Pro 11in including a high-resolution display, a great processor, plenty of storage, and capable cameras. However, it lacks some of the extras such as a Smart Keyboard cover and the Pro Pen.
Other options include the Apple iPad Mini 4th Generation (from PS148) which is a better value for money tablet than the iPad Air 3rd Generation but not as good as the iPad Pro 11in. It has the same display size as the other tablets but is thinner and lighter. It's also faster and more energy-efficient thanks to its newer A10 Fusion chip. It also has Face ID built-in.
The last option is the Apple iPad (from PS147) which still sells well even though it's been replaced by the iPad Mini 4th Generation. It has the same screen size and overall design as the other iPads but is much older (it was released in 2014 instead of 2019).
