When Apple introduced its new iPad Pro, colorful iMacs, and Apple TV 4K last week, the company didn't say when, exactly, they would be available for purchase. Apple only said they were coming in the "second half of May," without providing a date. 

Now, however, multiple reports point to May 21 as the date when these devices will hit stores. 

Leaker Jon Prosser said a few days ago that the iPad Pro launch date is on May 21 for the 12.9-inch variant and May 22 for the 11-inch variant. On Thursday, he amended those predictions, saying that both versions are launching on May 21. 

And MacRumors unearthed a John Lewis listing, which points to both the new iPad Pro (in both sizes), and the new iMac, launching on May 21. John Lewis is a UK retailer, but as MacRumors notes, Apple typically launches new products on the same day in the UK and the U.S. 

There's no word on when the new Apple TV 4K is coming, but given it was announced at the same time as the iPad Pro and the iMac, it's likely that it's coming on May 21 as well. 

The reports come after Apple's quarterly earnings call, with Apple posting stellar sales figures for the iPad and the Mac. During the call, Apple CEO Tim Cook said that iPad Pro and Macs will be affected by shortages in the second half of 2021.

Previous rumors indicated that Apple's 12.9-inch iPad Pro might arrive later than the 11-inch version, due to manufacturing issues with the MiniLED panel that's used in the larger iPad model. The new reports indicate that both models are arriving at the same time, but it's still possible that Apple will initially have a smaller supply of the larger iPad Pro.
