2021 iPad Pro models set to launch on May 21 and 22, says leaker
Leaker Jon Prosser claims to have new info on the release date for the new M1 iPad Pro models Apple announced last week, pointing to May 21 and 22 for the launch.
Prosser says he's hearing the 12.9-inch iPad Pro will release on May 21, and the new 11-inch iPad Pro will launch on May 22.
The leaker acknowledged how unusual it would be for Apple to stagger two product releases a day apart, prefacing the dates in his tweet by saying, "Kinda weird but this is what I'm hearing." He added a "thinking-face" emoji.
The YouTube personality has a recent history of Apple leaks, beginning in late 2019. While he has gotten some details wrong, his overall accuracy history is still relatively high.

Apple announced the new iPad Pro models at its "Spring Loaded" event. The 2021 iPad Pro receives a significant performance boost from the M1 chip found in the latest Macs. The 12.9-inch model also includes a Liquid Retina XDR display with mini LED tech.
When Apple announced the tablets, it said customers could pre-order them on April 30 with "second half of May" availability.
