Hours after preorders began, the Apple Store is showing base 13-inch MacBook Pro arriving as soon as June 24, 2022, but custom configurations are delayed — and oddly hard to order.
More than two hours after preorders began, it is still possible to order the baseline models for delivery on schedule on June 24, 2022. While other recent devices have seen their shipping dates slip back much further, and much faster, it’s not clear if it’s because Apple has more of this particular model than it has for other machines, or demand is lower.But, ordering custom configurations is different this time, than in nearly every other pre-order cycle. At launch, there were no custom configurations available at all. Many were listed, but selecting any of them greyed-out the Preorder button, and delivery changed to say “Currently unavailable.”
