Is the 2021 iPad Pro finally arriving next month?

While we know that we can preorder the incredible new M1 iPad Pro from tomorrow, Apple has been characteristically coy about when we'll actually be able to get our hands on the device. Apple's website currently states it will be available "in the second half of May" – but the exact release date may have just leaked.

According to reputed Apple leaker Jon Prosser (below), the 11-inch model will be released on 22 May, but the larger 12.9-inch version will emerge a day earlier on 21 May. Why Apple would want to stagger the release by 24 hours is anyone's guess – but it sounds like it'll be less than a month until our best drawing tablets roundup welcomes a new arrival or two.
