Apple has shipped the first 14- and 16-inch MacBook Pros that ship with the M1 Pro and M1 Max chips. At least that will be the case for those who were the quickest to place a pre-order.
New MacBook Pros with M1 Pro/Max chips have shipped
The shipment of the new MacBook Pro has been reported by several people in different countries. This is especially the case in the United States and Australia. It is possible that European customers will see their order shipped on Monday. This is because Apple only sends a tracking when its orders leave the European warehouses. Delivery is made within 24 hours once this is done. For other countries, tracking is usually given as soon as the order leaves the production plants in Asia.
Can you expect to place an order today and receive a 14- or 16-inch MacBook Pro on Tuesday? The answer, unfortunately, is no. The Apple Online Store says the earliest delivery will be November 16. At least that’s the case for the 14-inch model. Earliest delivery is November 23 for the 16-inch laptop.
There is a plan B: go to the physical Apple Store and hope that there is stock on the day. Another solution is to go through retailers: Amazon, Fnac, Boulanger, Darty and LDLC.
