Ahead of their expected launch on May 21, some brand new M1 iPad Pro orders have begun switching to a "Shipped" status.

Multiple readers of MacRumors have shared with us their updated order for their brand new iPads which now shows a "Shipped" status, rather than "Preparing to ship." Interestingly, despite the new iPad Pros now shipping for a few customers, reviews and hands-on of the newest M1-powered device have yet to be published.

The new iPad has proven to be popular, with some shipping estimates slipping into mid-July. The higher-end 12.9-inch model features an all-new mini-LED display compared to the traditional LED display used in the smaller 11-inch variant. Both sizes boast the Apple silicon M1 chip, first launched in November in the MacBook Air, MacBook Pro, and Mac mini.

Apple has said the new M1 iPad Pro and 24-inch iMac will be available in the second half of May but have yet to confirm a specific date officially. Despite their lack of an official announcement, typically made through a Newsroom update, the company accidentally confirmed May 21 as a launch date in the metadata of a previous Newsroom post. In addition, orders for the new iPad estimated arrival dates as early as Friday, May 21.

I’m confused guys. Both Pro colors look good and recently I’m leaning towards silver. Should I get the silver?

If I was you I'd get the silver. I have an iPad Pro in Space Gray (2018) and I find that that the body picks up fingerprints and smudges quite fast. On my girlfriend' silver iPad Pro it's not as noticeable in comparison. Plus the silver is more in line with my iMac :D

My space gray 256gb wifi only iPad with engraving shipped with delivery on the 21st. Shopping from China, not that I’m obsessively tracking it every 5 minutes

I don’t think there’s any right or wrong answer here, but I prefer the silver myself - I like the contrast it gives with the magic keyboard as well as when the device is on its own (silver rear, black/glass front). Reminiscent to me of the original iPhone or iPad.

My silver 12.9 256 ipad is shipped. I bought the black magic keyboard because I feel it will wear better over time.

Anyone get “shipped’ notices on a white magic keyboard? I didn’t order one with my preorder but thinking about ordering now. I bet they will be available from the physical Apple Store on launch day though

Space gray 256 WiFi here just shipped yay! Went with the Ottorbox 360 case. I have an apple small BT keyboard for those times I might have need of it along with a trackpad. Can’t justify the cost for Apple’s right now.
