In a twist of fate, one Apple fan received their all-new 2021 12.9in iPad Pro pre-order early.
Like, really early.
The newfangled tablet is not expected to be released to the public officially until May 21st, this coming Friday.
According to Jon Prosser, embargoes for reviewers will be lifted this coming Wednesday, May 19th at 9am ET:
Embargo times for iMac & iPad Pro
iMac – 9:00am EST, Tuesday, May 18th
iPad Pro – 9:00am EST, Wednesday, May 19th
That’s when you can expect to see videos / hands-on coverage.
Don’t tell anyone that I told you, though. 🤫
