[C-Blog] Did Apple Silently Recall New Apple IPad Pro 11 Inch?

I have been seeing some good reviews about the new Apple IPad Pro 11 inch. However I could not see much stock recently in any of the stores in Bangalore, especially for the WiFi + Cellular version. Even couldn't find much in online sites like Flipkart. I thought it is because of the demand first. But stores are telling they are not getting the stock at all.
