Wesley Hilliard for AppleInsider:

Arrival dates are starting on May 21. These are expected to slip rapidly.

Apple made the purple iPhone 12 and AirTag available to order on April 23, and the initial orders ship to customers April 30. Some lucky customers received their orders days in advance.

Dates for these high-demand products will slip quickly. Deliveries will begin in the second half of May, with devices becoming available in-store on the same day.

It isn’t clear how many of each device will be available at retail. Stocks are expected to be limited.

MacDailyNews Take: Delivery dates for some products, notably the M1 iPad Pro, have already slipped after Apple’s online store experienced a rocky preorder session.


  1. Ordered a new iMac. I didn’t have any issues ordering at 8 EST, but I forgot to select a color. Not going to change it now, ship dates have slipped quite a bit. 🙂

  2. 11″ 1TB iPad Pro ordered at 5:05! Wish they could’ve squeezed an XDR in the smaller one but I think the regular screen’s brightness and colors are good enough for me.

  3. maxed out iMac ORANGE of all colors no fck reason why..?? wife says what he hell…? got the whole MONTY …. next up iPad…….
