Leaker Claims New Apple TV 4K to Launch May 21

Serial leaker Jon Prosser has today claimed the new Apple TV 4K will launch on May 21, the same day that the new redesigned 24-inch iMac and new iPad Pro models are now expected to become available, based on retailer listings.

Prosser's claim came in a tweet updating his earlier predictions for the launch dates of Apple's new ‌iPad Pro‌, shortly after MacRumors broke the news about UK retailer John Lewis pegging availability for the ‌iMac‌ and ‌iPad Pro‌ at May 21.

Prosser now also believes both models of ‌iPad Pro‌ will launch on May 21, rather than the 11-inch model arriving the following day, May 22 – his previous claim. According to the leaker, the May 22 date is "linked to the 5G model for a certain carrier and should be disregarded for the most part."

Pre-orders for the new Apple TV 4K open on Friday, April 30. The latest ‌Apple TV‌ 4K features a faster A12 Bionic chip, support for high-framerate HDR, and a redesigned Siri Remote.

Calm down,..its just the John Lewis leak,..rehashed by Prosser! ?

He posted his right after the John Lewis & simply added the Apple TV. He does this. When there is a bigger leak, he will quickly post it and claim it as his own ?‍♂️

Why do people get these when you can get a perfectly good firetv or Roku for under $50? Plus with the firetv, you can sideload stuff on it.
Oh great you too can have the same thing except now you have to load stuff on in jank mode, and hope nothing breaks when there's an update. errr no thanks. Also, why do people buy BMW when you can buy a perfectly good hyundai for less than half the price ? Have you even heard of the apple eco system.?

It might be time for MacRumors to consider ceasing to report his claims.
Not going to happen, it's news, it attracts visitors and comments. MR is a commercial venture first and foremost these days.
