Apple web metadata confirms May 21 release date for new Apple TV, iPad Pro and iMac
Apple has shared a reminder online that its redesigned iMac, new M1 iPad Pro and updated Apple TV will be available to pre-order starting tomorrow on Friday, April 30.
The update, shared to the company’s Newsroom 0n Thursday, has inadvertently confirmed the new products, previously vaguely slated to launch during the second half of May, will be available on May 21, thanks to a line of the webpage’s HTML metadata, spotted by Janson Aten on Twitter, that reads “The all-new iMac, iPad Pro, Apple TV 4K, purple iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 mini, and AirTag arrive in stores and on doorsteps around the world May 21.”
The discovery comes after U.K. retailer John Lewis accidentally showed online today that the new products would be available from Friday, May 21, and before that, leaker Jon Prosser suggested the date in a tweet shared at the beginning of the week.
Apple has now updated its webpage to remove the metadata, rewording the line to read “The all-new iMac, iPad Pro, and Apple TV 4K arrive in stores and on doorsteps around the world in the second half of May. iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 mini in purple and AirTag are available now.”
