The recently announced 12.9-inch M1 iPad Pro is not only more expensive than its predecessor, it is also more costly to repair. 

According to Apple's iPad service pricing in Singapore, you will have to fork out a whopping S$1,049 - the price of an iPhone 11 (128GB) to repair the latest 12.9-inch iPad Pro if it is not covered by AppleCare+ or is out of warranty. In comparison, it costs S$979 to repair the 4th generation 12.9-inch iPad Pro. The higher service fee is likely due to the new mini-LED display. 

If you have AppleCare+ coverage which is priced at S$229, the service fee is S$68. AppleCare+ for the iPad extends the tablet, Apple Pencil and Apple-branded iPad keyboard coverasge to two years from the AppleCare+ purchase date and includes up to two incidents of accidental damage protection every 12 months. 

The iPad Pro (2021) is now available for order with the 11-inch model starting from S$1,199 and the 12.9-inch model starting from S$1,649. Both tablets will be available in the second half of this month.
