Some M1 iMac Orders Begin Shifting to ‘Shipped’ Status With May 21 Delivery

While the brand-new 24-inch iMac with the M1 chip is still over a week away from launching, a few fortunate consumers are beginning to see their orders marked as “shipped” on Apples online store, with a May 21 shipment date.
MacRumors readers Jean-François and Emmanuel, both from Canada, let us know that their orders moved to “shipped” status beginning today.
For customers who still see their iMac order in the “processing” or “preparing to deliver” stages, this is still regular at this time. A number of the initial orders that are now moving to “delivered” status are likely custom-made built-to-order setups from Apples online store, with deliveries coming straight from China following assembly.
