Last week, Apple announced their new iPad Pros. The company stated that customers can pre-order the tablets on the 30th of April, but stopped short of providing an actual release date except to say the second half of May. However, leakster Jon Prosser has tweeted out the potential release date for either tablet.
Starting with the 11-inch iPad Pro, Prosser claims that this tablet will be released on the 22nd of May, while the larger 12.9-inch model will be available on the 21st of May. It’s odd that there are two different release dates, especially since they’re so close to each other that Apple could have easily kept them for the same date.
Kinda weird… but this is what I’m hearing 🤔

However, Prosser claims that this is what he’s been told, although given that Apple has not actually confirmed the dates, it’s probably best to take these claims with a grain of salt for now. The new iPad Pros, for those who might have missed the Spring Loaded event, comes with the M1 chipset used in Apple’s Mac computers last year.
It will also come with a ton of RAM configurable up to 16GB, and will also sport a brand new Liquid Retina XDR display, which is basically Apple’s name for mini LED. The 11-inch model is priced starting $799 while the 12.9-inch model is priced starting at $1,099.
