Apple have finally confirmed in-store availability for the next-generation Apple TV 4K, all-new Siri Remote and M1-powered iMac and iPad Pro models, beginning Friday, May 21st. The company also confirmed that customers who placed their pre-orders early enough can expect to see their new devices arrive on the same day.
Beginning May 21, customers can get their hands on the all-new iMac, the M1-powered iPad Pro, and the next generation of Apple TV 4K at Apple Store locations and authorized resellers around the world. Customers who already ordered their new products will begin receiving deliveries Friday.
With more than 99 percent of worldwide Apple Store locations open as of Friday, visitors will be able to experience the full line of new products in person with help from an Apple Specialist.
It is currently unknown how limited in-store availability will be for specific configurations of the M1 powered iPad Pro or the all-new iMac. Current delivery estimates for online orders on the most popular configurations placed today extend to the middle of July. Whilst not a guarantee, we have it on good authority that early birds should not have a problem obtaining the next-generation Apple TV 4K at their local Apple store on Friday, however the newly designed Siri Remote may be in limited supply given the potential for users of Apple TV HD (2015) and Apple TV 4K (2017) looking to upgrade from the now discontinued original Siri Remote.
