Check your shipping and delivery status.

If you ordered one of the new 2021 M1 iPad Pros, you could get your new device by the end of next week. 

According to MacRumors, some customers who pre-ordered the new iPad Pro have an estimated delivery date of May 21. The highly anticipated new model debuted last month during Apple’s Spring Loaded Event.

The tech giant originally gave customers estimated delivery dates ranging from May 21-May 28 after the M1 iPad Pro officially went on sale April 30.

The 11-inch iPad Pro ranges from $799 to $2,099, while the new 12.9-inch model starts at $1,099 and can be as much as $2,399 for the highest storage option with cellular connectivity.

The fifth generation iPad Pro models have some noticeable upgrades, including a mini-LED display, 5G, an ultra-wide camera, more RAM storage, Thunderbolt and USB 4 support, and perhaps, most importantly, Apple's ground-breaking M1 chip

Apple’s new ARM-based M1 chip promises faster speeds than almost any other computer chip available today, thanks to its eight-core CPU. The M1 chip provides Apple devices a significant boost in power and battery life, and the new iPad Pro can get up to 10 hours of surfing the web on Wi-Fi or watching videos, and up to nine hours on a cellular network. 

Apple's quick turnaround in shipping and delivery is uncommon for these times, since the pandemic has put a wrench in product supply across industries. According to Business Insider, there's a global chip shortage impacting automakers and consumer electronics companies, resulting in the demand outpacing supply.

Apple CEO Tim Cook previously warned that supply issues of the M1 chip could affect products that feature it. 

"We expect to be supply-gated, not demand-gated," Cook told analysts, according to BBC. "We have a good handle on our demand."
