What you need to know
- The date of the iMac and iPad Pro launch appears to have been leaked by a UK retailer.
- John Lewis says both devices will be available on May 21.
- That matches a date of May 21 given by leaker Jon Prosser, and Apple's timeframe of the second half of May.
Apple has previously confirmed that both the new iPad Pro and the new iMac will be available to pre-order on April 30, but had only given "the second half of May" as a timeframe for both shipping and in-store availability. John Lewis' website seems to indicate that date will be May 21. It echoes a previous report from Jon Prosser noting the same date:
As suspected, the May 22 date seems to have been off, as John Lewis says both the 11-inch and 12.9-inch iPad Pro will be available on the same date.
Apple announced its huge redesign to iMac complete with the M1 Apple silicon chip, as well as the updated iPad Pro which also features M1 at its April Spring-loaded event.
