The new M1 iPad Pro is already back-ordered into June

What you need to know

  • Apple made its new M1-powered iPad Pro available for pre-order today.
  • Some models are already showing delivery estimates of up to six weeks.

They weren’t coming until mid-May before, now they’re coming in June.

Apple made its new iPad Pro, complete with M1 chip, available for pre-order earlier today. We already knew that they wouldn’t be ready to ship to customers until mid-May at the earliest, but some configurations have already slipped into June.

Those buying the new 12.9-inch iPad Pro, in particular, are already facing delivery windows of 4-6 weeks, while some configurations are faring a little better. The 11-inch iPad Pro looks set for delivery in around three weeks – putting it right in the timeframe that we expected the new tablets to be delivered.

It’s easy to see why the new iPad Pro is so popular out the gate, too. With Apple’s M1 making its way into an iPad for the first time these machines are set to be the fastest yet. Couple that with the larger iPad Pro also having a fancy new Retina XDR Display, and these new tablets are set to be hot property.

Extreme dynamic range comes to the 12.9-inch iPad Pro.2 The Liquid Retina XDR display delivers true-to-life detail with a 1,000,000:1 contrast ratio, great for viewing and editing HDR photos and videos or enjoying your favorite movies and TV shows. It also features a breathtaking 1000 nits of full‑screen brightness and 1600 nits of peak brightness. And advanced display technologies like P3 wide color, True Tone, and ProMotion.

When these new iPad Pros do finally become available it’s a good bet they’ll be the best iPads money can buy. So long as you don’t mind them being a little difficult to get hold of, at least.
