Delivery estimates for several Apple product pre-orders, including the new 24-inch iMac, have now slipped into June.

At the time of publication, some colors of the 24-inch iMac and all variants of the 12.9-inch iPad Pro show June delivery dates in Apple's online retail store.

Those looking to purchase the entry-level 24-inch iMac still see May deliveries -- as early as May 21 -- but more expensive models have slipped. Some colors of the $1,499 and $1,699 tiers of Apple's new desktop show June delivery dates.

In the middle pricing tier, the blue, yellow, orange, and purple iMac models are no longer available for May estimated deliveries. On the high end, the yellow, orange, and purple variants are also back-ordered into June.

The 12.9-inch iPad Pro is delayed across the board as not a single model is still showing a May estimate. Apple now shows all models shipping in either June or early July. The 11-inch iPad Pro is still showing May deliveries for all variants.

The updated Apple TV 4K still shows May 21 to May 27 for the entry-level 32GB version. However, the 64GB model has slipped, arriving as late as June 1.

Apple launched pre-orders this morning for the remaining products from its April 20 "Spring Loaded" event. The new iMac, iPad Pro, and Apple TV follow last week's pre-orders for AirTags and the purple iPhone 12.

Update: Certain iPad Pro configurations are showing delivery dates pushed back into July.

    Not even Apple is completely immune from the chip shortage. And any conspiracy theory of intentional withholding of product for marketing reasons is daft. It is what it is, demand outstripping supply.

    Was on line at 8:00am (EST) as noted and couldn’t  connect until 8:15am. By then the May deliveries were gone - now into late June. I guess when you live in Canada you don’t count. I am very disappointed Mr. Cook.

    I'm in Canada as well (Vancouver) and was able to finalize my order by around 5:02am PST so don't blame Apple or being in Canada.
