After its debut at the Apple Spring Loaded event, the new iPad Pro 2021 is finally available to pre-order. The refresh has earned the latest iPad Pro a place in our roundup of best tablets. Available in both 11-inch and 12.9-inch versions, the iPad Pro is a fantastic slate for both work and play.
iPad Pro pre-orders are live on Apple's regional websites right now, in both Space Gray and Silver options. And for those of you who will be using it frequently, and downloading copious amounts of content, there are five storage options ranging from 128GB all the way up to a massive 2TB.

2021 iPad Pro pre-orders may be open now, but they won't ship for another couple weeks. Expect to see your new tablet making its way to you at the back end of May. A leaked date was spotted citing May 21, but we'll sit tight to wait for official confirmation.
Another thing to take into account is the possibility of iPad Pro shortages. Apple CEO Tim Cook has warned that both the iPad Pro 2021 and new iMac 2021 will suffer supply constraints thanks to the ongoing semiconductor shortages. The chip drought is affecting everything from the PS5 to smartphones. That being the case, we'd suggest getting those pre-orders in sooner rather than later, so you're not left scouring the internet for iPad Pros in a month or two.
Other retailers are opening up their iPad Pro 2021 pre-orders too, so if you'd rather order from the likes of Amazon, Best Buy, etc, check out the retailer links below.
