What you need to know

- All three new products will be in stores this Friday, May 21.
Apple today confirmed that the new M1 iMac, M1 iPad Pro, and Apple TV 4K will be available in retail stores around the world starting this Friday, May 21.
Apple also confirmed that those who placed pre-orders quickly will begin receiving their new kit on the same day.
However, given the lack of stock available for some of these products online it's unclear how easy it will be to walk into an Apple Store and walk out with your chosen product. Ordering an iPad Pro online, for example, will leave buyers waiting weeks for their new tablet to arrive.
Apple also once again detailed the new products that will be available, starting with iMac.
The new iPad Pro is the most powerful yet, beating out many Macs in terms of performance. The 12.9-inch model also features an all-new Liquid Retina Display XDR screen to boot.
Finally, the biggest addition to the new Apple TV 4K is undoubtedly that new remote! With that in mind, sould you upgrade to the latest Apple TV 4K? I'll leave that up to you! If you decide that you should but want to save some cash, make sure you check out the best Apple TV deals first.
