Apple announced a new iPad Pro Wednesday. It will ship in two sizes, including an 11-inch model and a 12.9-inch model, beginning next week.

The 11-inch iPad Pro will start at $799 while the 12.9-inch model will start at $999. Apple’s new Magic Keyboard for iPad Pro will be available in May for $299 for the 11-inch model and $349 for the 12.9-inch model.

The new iPad has been rumored for months, but there have been recent questions about whether or not Apple would be able to launch it in the spring after suffering production slowdowns in China due to the coronavirus. Apple also took the unusual move of announcing the new iPad through a press release instead its traditional spring in-person event.

Meanwhile, Apple closed all its retail stores in the U.S. indefinitely to help mitigate the spread of the coronavirus.
