• A new leak claims iMac, iPad Pro and Apple TV 4K will launch on May 21 
  • A reliable leaker and a U.K. giant retailer also hinted at the said market release date
  • Apple earlier announced that the mentioned products would launch in the second half of May

Apple Newsroom has seemingly accidentally leaked that the next Apple 4K TV, 24-inch iMac and the new iPad Pro will be released on May 21, following hints from other sources.

In an Apple Newsroom U.K. press release that reminded customers of Friday's pre-order schedule, the website HTML seemed to unintentionally reveal the launch date for the much-awaited Apple products.

“The all-new iMac, iPad Pro, Apple TV 4K, purple iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 mini, and AirTags arrive in stores and doorsteps around the world May 21,” the source code wrote, according to 9to5 Mac.

The statement, apparently, confirmed the rumored release date for iMac, iPad Pro and Apple TV, but not for AirTags and purple iPhone 12. The two items’ official launch is Friday, April 30.

Hint From Known Leaker

On Monday, John Prosser, a serial leaker who has a good track record of releasing reliable information about Apple’s upcoming plans, first hinted at the May 21st release date. He published an update on Twitter noting that the 12.9-inch iPad Pro will launch on the said date and the 11-inch version on May 22.

On Thursday, Posser updated his Twitter post confirming the May 21st release date while noting that the 22nd was inaccurate.

Retailer Hinted At The May 21 Release

John Lewis, a U.K. retailer and authorized Apple reseller, also hinted at the same release date for the next iMac and iPad Pro. On the 24-inch iMac product pages, Lewis told customers that the new models would be available on May 21, MacRumors reported.

During the Apple Spring Loaded Event held on April 20, Apple announced that iMac, iPad Pro, and Apple TV 4K would launch in the second half of May.

What To Expect

Apple customers could expect the next iMac to have a thin bezel, making way for the 24-inch display. This means a larger screen yet an almost similar body size as its 21-inch predecessor.

Meanwhile, the 12.9-inch model iPad Pro will feature the Liquid Retina XDR mini-LED display, a feature anticipated to extend to MacBook Pro in the future. The upcoming iPad Pro will be powered by Apple’s very own M1 chips for enhanced performance.

The Apple TV 4K will come with a revamped Siri Remote. It will support the high frame rate HDR and will be powered by the A12 Bionic chip.
