I stumbled upon this page today and wondered if I could find anything in the source code that might reveal the iPad Pro release date. I found nothing conclusive, but I did find one date in the code, and that date is November 9th. It's embedded in the HTML page directly as the date that the cookies expire on. The code begins on Line 270 of the document, and here's a picture of it: Why might anyone ever think that this date is significant? Well, two reasons: 1. This specific page will likely be removed the same day that the iPad Pro is released. 2. As a software developer myself, I often set cookies to be X years into the future from some specific date. If November 9th, 2015 is the last day that this page will be around, then the cookie expires exactly 35 years into the future. 35 years on the dot is a more likely arbitrary time that a developer would select over say, 34 years, 11 months, and 3 days (or whatever). As for the hours, minutes, and seconds? That corresponds to 4:12 PM PST or 7:12 PM EST. Shrug. The argument for November 9th is itself iffy at best; I'm not sure if it's productive to theorize about what this could represent. So why post this? Should we expect it to land on November 9th? Honestly, who knows, and, to some extent, who cares. We know that it'll be released in November sometime, and as early as next week we might have the actual release date. I just wanted to make a post on the off chance that it is released on the 9th, and maybe, just maybe, some software engineer unknowingly spilled the beans. But it could just be coincidence either way. So what do you think?
