3 years free guarantee on iPad pro at John Lewis,accidental damage cover for 3 years only £49

Found 13th Nov 2015
if you are in the market for the new iPad pro then John Lewis are offering 3 years free guarantee with the new iPad pro,but what's even better IMO is that for only £49 you can cover the giant sized tablet for 3 years of accidental cover,which also includes 30 days per year of cover abroad,so no worries if you drop it while you are drunk or fall into the swimming pool with it.

Now I know Apple do their own apple care but it costs £79 for only 2 years and you have to pay £39 if you make a claim,where John Lewis do not make you pay a penny if you have to claim.

I'm sure this will go cold because it is Apple related but as long as it helps someone out then that's all that matters.

Oddly placed deal....its in "computers" category but this is just a warranty enhancement - correct me if I'm wrong?.

While we're on about the iPad pro though....what a feckin expensive bit o kit!. I'm sure it's nice enough to use as far as desktop screen size goes but it's hardly going to be comfortable as a couch surfer for a few hours continued use....so that's the pockets and the wrists damaged.

Why is it odd,I would think an iPad would come under computing and to get the free 3 years you need to buy an iPad pro,so the overal package will consist of an iPad an extra warranty.

If i have wrongly categorised it then I'm more than happy for a mod to amend it.

Hands up its probably me being pedantic mate. In fairness I can't see any better category to place it so I'll shut up and wind my neck in

That's ok mate

I did look at the other categories and felt computing was probably more suitable than say restaurants

I would recommend going for the 128gb model,as I don't think you will have much usable storage on the 32gb model as the 128gb one I have only leaves you with 114gb to use.

The 32GB will be sufficient for some people. You'll have about 25gb useable which will be more than enough.

If you want to take full advantage of what the pro can do such as 4K video editing then the 128gb model would be better,but yeah if you aren't going to use it to do such things then the 32gb maybe fine.

Personally I don't think 128gb is still that much these days with photo and video quality improving and taking up more space.i would have liked to have seen 256gb or 512gb like the surface pro,as let's not forget these tablets are being marketed as laptop replacements.

PLEASE NOTE: This is a great deal, voted hot, but if the iPad Pro is a business purchase then _accidental cover_ is a waste of £49.00
As you _won't_ be covered in the event of an accident.
That's a good deal, starting price isn't bad either, I remember paying around £650 iirc for my first iPad 1 64gb which is still going strong, ok on ios5 but it works and have plenty of apps working on it, my daughter has it now. Heat

Can't understand why anyone would buy this over a Surface Pro 4
A little bit of unreported info for anyone buying a iPad pro is that for once Apple have supplied a decent sized lightning cable,over 6ft long !

Because they don't want windows?

Because they want a stylus which is a lot more accurate than any surface?
I've had to email John Lewis as although the website said it was 3 years-1 Apple and 2 JL- the emailed warranty only says 2 years one Apple one JL.
No reply from John Lewis yet but will update for your info

If, for example, you drop it and the screen breaks...how would they know it was business use? If they ask, just smile and say no, just for Angry Birds and Plants vs Zombies.

Because IOS is a purely touch focused operating system with the largest choice of professional grade apps. Whereas Windows 10 is a hybrid operating system with a comparatively tiny choice of touch optimised apps.
I am no Apple fan and think this is a niche product but at least it has decent software support which is why you buy hardware in the first place.

Agree with that. Love ipads, have 3 of 'em, and loved the idea of one with a bigger screen, but that price!! jeesus!

Wish JL would allow back ordering - I'm wanting to buy from them but having to instead BO with Apple. They're losing sales.

You can just set up an email reminder when they get stock. They usually get products in quite quickly.
Does this cover theft??

I agree and i own an iPad, mac and iPhone. Theres nothing pro about it, it has great specs but is essentially just a bigger iPad. They should of put a hybrid of OSX and iOS on it. IOS cripples what it should be.

actually the pro 3 has sold tones of units, if apple wanted to go after the surface pro with the iPad pro they shouldn't of put iOS on it. It brings nothing new to the table. Don't get me wrong i own 3 apple products but i just don't see the point in this, theres nothing pro about it

Yeah, good one Kim!.

Thanks for that little gem right there lass lol

Probably because this is an extended warranty for an ipad pro as opposed to the Surface Pro 4 which is a tablet you daft numpty

Considering that OSX has no touch optimization and neither do OSX applications what exactly do you expect Apple to use instead of iOS?

As for the suffix Pro, who cares, it just hints that it's the top of their line which it is in their Tablet range. Hardly worth getting ones knickers in a twist over.

I've got the surface book and the iPad pro. iPad Pro is great for magazines / comics / media consumption. Surface book is better than everything else.

Some people may need split screen multi-tasking. I guess the "Pro" is meant for enterprise and new enterprise apps.
