While Apple’s new M1 iMacs are still a bit over a week from hitting shelves, some customers that pre-ordered their new M1 iMacs are beginning to see their order status transition to “shipped,” sporting a May 21 delivery date.
MacRumors reports that some of its readers are telling them that their orders were marked as “shipped” earlier today. Both readers that the MacRumors article mentioned reside in Canada.
If your M1 iMac order is still showing as being in the “processing” or “preparing to ship” stages, don’t fret. This is normal at this point in time. Many of the orders that are now shifting to “shipped” status are likely custom-built-to-order configurations, with shipments coming directly from China following assembly.
The new iMac is powered by Apple’s homegrown M1 chip, which boasts an 8-core CPU and up to an 8-core GPU. The new Macs can be configured with up to 16GB of memory and up to 2TB of SSD storage. The new iMac is available in seven colors, including green, yellow, orange, pink, purple, blue, and silver. Pricing starts at $1,299 in the United States.
