What you need to know
- Anyone buying a new 12.9-inch iPad Pro could be waiting until July before taking delivery.
- Current delivery estimates sit at anything up to 8 weeks for some configurations.
Anyone placing an order for a new 12.9-inch iPad Pro could be waiting until some point in July before it arrives on their doorstep. Delivery windows currently sit between six and eight weeks, taking us until the first week or two of July if you're particularly unlucky.
After going up for pre-order last week some of the more popular 12.9-inch iPad Pro models have been steadily slipping and slipping, leaving those who need to get one ASAP perhaps best waiting until they can be bought in-store. Be quick though – we don't yet know how long they'll be available there.
The brand new iPad Pro comes with an Apple M1 chip for the first time, with the 12.9-inch version also packing Apple's first Mini-LED screen for improved brightness and such.
Anyone who can wait a little while should check out our iPad Pro deals to make sure they're getting the best price possible and who knows, maybe Amazon can get your new iPad Pro to you a little sooner than Apple itself.
