Prosser says he's hearing the 12.9-inch iPad Pro will release on May 21, and the new 11-inch iPad Pro will launch on May 22.

The leaker acknowledged how unusual it would be for Apple to stagger two product releases a day apart, prefacing the dates in his tweet by saying, "Kinda weird but this is what I'm hearing." He added a "thinking-face" emoji.

The YouTube personality has a recent history of Apple leaks, beginning in late 2019. While he has gotten some details wrong, his overall accuracy history is still relatively high.

Apple announced the new iPad Pro models at its "Spring Loaded" event. The 2021 iPad Pro receives a significant performance boost from the M1 chip found in the latest Macs. The 12.9-inch model also includes a Liquid Retina XDR display with mini LED tech.

When Apple announced the tablets, it said customers could pre-order them on April 30 with "second half of May" availability.

    Billions of dollars in R&D money and Apple still can't figure out that we all want the MacOS on the iPad Pro. SMH!

    “We all want MacOS on iPad Pro”? When one uses all, none, never and always, I ignore the rest of the comment.

    Sorry but you’re not seeing what Apple sees. Given their enormous success so far with their vision for the iPad I’m thinking they know what they’re doing. BTW, I’m not part of the “we all” as I do not want macOS on the iPad.

    I don’t.  I’ve not talked to anyone that fits that statement either.

    XDR iPad Pro is impressive, but too large for my needs. Will have to be patient for next year’s XDR release for 11-inch model.
