Dear all,

Since the iPad 2 launched in so many European countries simultaneously, I suggest to have one common thread to see the first "Prepared for Shipment" status message (AND WE GOT IT ;)).

People from other countries (Australia etc.) are welcome too, of course.

BTW: I ordered around 2:30 AM in Switzerland, when I figured out this 1-Click trick (still didn't receive my eMail confirmation, though ...).

Cheers

No, it doesn't take that long specially when the iPad's ship from the Netherlands ;) I'm sure my iPad will arrive quite soon after it ships initially, by the 22nd of April is my bet :)

How Apple can have people still waiting to have their iPads prepared for shipment who ordered ON LAUNCH DAY TWO WEEKS AGO and then go and ship right away to international customers is a joke. I have a feeling that once Android is more of a competitor I'll be long gone from Appleville.

Well, I'm really sorry to hear this (I'd be angry, too), but keep this in mind:

One, no orders outside the U.S. are shipping yet, and two, Apple is a global player -- why should only U.S. customers get the thing until the demand drops??

It's not so much about US customers getting theirs before the rest of the world. It's a matter of paying customers who ordered two weeks before other paying customers getting their device AFTER the second set of customers.

I'm still waiting for my iPad I ordered on 3/11 at 5:37PM (launched at 5 remember)

Well plenty of people who go to physical stores will.

I can't even track mine (or cancel the order) cause I was stupid and ordered through verizon because they promised it'd be here by 3/15. Now I'm bitter. I hate all iPad owners!

Ordered my iPad 2 online 1hr after the Swiss Apple Store went live with 2 to 3 week delivery estimates. Received a confirmation mail 3hrs later with following dates:
Ships 15th of April
Delivery 21st of April
Always possible that the dates will be moved forward. :)

well, plenty of people already bought one at a physical us store :rolleyes:

anyway, ordered mine at the italian apple store at 01:43 AM GMT with one click purchase. It was the only way that worked, still no confirmation mail but the order panel says:

Ships 15th of April
Delivery 29th of April

now lets hope they are playing it veeery safe :p

I'm wondering why the very first online orders haven't been shipped immediately on yesterday's launch date, despite the official estimated shipping date.

Do they send all available units to their stores (and some resellers), instead? If so, ordering at the Apple Store is obviously a big mistake ...

BTW: Due to this "An unexpected error occurred ..." cr** I'm not one of the those who can expect to become blessed first ;)

well afaik even at release the official estimate was 2-3 weeks

also, at least here in italy ordering from apple was definitely a mistake, I'm reading that people are walking in an apple store today and buying the lasts ipad 2 :qq:

Well, this was quite my point: I'm aware of the fact that 2 to 3 weeks was the initial estimate, but with at least some units in stock, the very first customers should get their iPad right away--even if the rest of us will really have to wait according to their estimate ...

maybe the online orders are on some sort of global queue?

IMO ordering straight from Apple is not a big mistake. I have read comments on a finnish Apple forum that some people who made iPad 2 reservations to an official Apple re-seller and were told that they've would surely get their iPads on friday DIDN'T GET THEIR IPADS 'cos they all were sold to the customers that walked in the store without reservations :eek: SERIOSLY THAT IS SO MESSED UP! specially when most of the in walkers were foreigner bootleggers :mad:

So, I'm more than pleased with myself after ordering an iPad from Apple's own web store and getting 2-3 weeks shipping estimate 'cos NOW the shipping time for the new shiny iPad that everyone wants is 3-4 weeks :p

As already mentioned, I tried to get an iPad right at the Apple Store in Zurich (of course I failed), but it wouldn't make much sense anyway since most of the cases aren't available at the moment. Also, I'm waiting for some meaningful reviews of those (especially for the one from PixelSkin) ...

So, still three weeks to go :o

I'm so tempted to go with Tesco, Comet, whoever but the thing that keeps stopping me is Apple Online's exemplary customer service. If there's anything wrong with it like a dead pixel, backlight bleeding etc, I can send it back to Apple with no quibbles and no restocking fee.

Comet, for example, with whom I nearly placed an order this morning, charge a restocking fee. I can't be bothered to get into a protracted discussion about whether dead pixels constitute damage and whether I'd be charged a fee etc.

With Apple, it's so much more pleasant. So, at the moment, despite the agonising wait - I'm sticking with my Apple order.

Well, it's on the Order Status page's interface, and I could. What is your current Shipping Method?

Cancelling some stuff from the order also did not change the displayed shipping or delivery dates.

And you can also purchase Smart Covers with free shipping separately, if you wish.

My shipping status is currently 'Merge in Transit GB'. So if I cancel the Smart Cover the shipping status will change but the dates won't?

Funny thing!

Just got a call from Apple - they told me that there is a problem with my iPad 2 order. I was quite shocked, to be honest!

As it turned out, they were referring to one order I placed that got "stuck" in their system and never came through correctly. When I told them that I have a confirmation mail with another order ID, they checked and deleted the incomplete one.

At least they care ;)

BTW: They still don't have any information when the online orders start to roll out ...

It's nice when company like Apple can't decide what to ship and when :rolleyes:

I ordered the Apple Care Protection Plan with my iPad 2 and at the time of the ordering Apple said that "items will be shipped together as one delivery" and the Order Status stated "items will be merged in Netherlands"

BUT NOW

my order status is saying the following:

"Items will be shipped separately as they become available."

IPAD WI-FI 3G 64GB WHITE-KSW quantity 1
MC984KS/A

Estimated Shipping: 15 Apr, 2011

APP FOR IPAD - COL/AE-ZML quantity 1
S3771ZM/A

Estimated Shipping: 25 Mar, 2011
Estimated Delivery: 04 Apr, 2011

So, it seems that I will get my ACPP as soon as three weeks before my iPad is set to arrive. WHY OH WHY?

So unnecessary IMO. Now I have to make sure I'm home twice when the delivery guy comes. I HAVE THINGS TO DO APPLE, BUT YEAH I'LL WAIT FOR YOU :rolleyes:

Those who ordered 11-12/3 in the U.S got their iPad shipped like 25-26/3. So i expect that for us who ordered on 25 mars the iPads will ship around like 8 April and not 15th. Alot of people are also cancelling their order due to stores who get iPads in stock and thereby we will be pushed forward in the line :cool:

Come on, that's not how it works, and you know that!

They don't ship all of their units exclusively to the US in order to satisfy the demand there, first. Or do you expect all non-US shipments to become re-directed to you??

If I was you, I'd be really pi**ed if other US customers which ordered after me would receive their iPad before I got mine ;)

Yeah right. If that were the case, how come Apple UK stores are (apparently) getting new stock in every day ("reserved" store), people are ordering after 9pm and picking them up the very next day, yet my 25/03 on-line order at 12:34am is still not going to ship until 15/04?

Shouldn't one of these newly available iPads be coming to me (or at least one of us) who ordered within the 1st 10mins of iPad2 release?

Not too happy with Apple on this one. Quite prepared to wait if there is no stock etc, but see this as being penalised for trying to buy on-line through Apple...and not just by a few days. This is weeks :-( Unfortunately I live 90 miles from an Apple store and all the local Comet type stores seem to be at the end of a very long supply chain as well. Hell, there's a Libyan insurgent further up the supply chain than me ;-)

same thing here, the website even says for my camera connection kit:
estimated shipping: 25 mar
but it hasn't shipped yet

confused much apple? :p

OT: I ordered a Limited Edition DODOcase for my iPad 2 on 3/9 and it shipped this past wednesday. Initially I was supposed to have today by 6 pm (it's now 8.30 pm in Finland) and obviously its not here :rolleyes:

Ships 15th of April
Delivery 21st of April
Always possible that the dates will be moved forward. :)

Well the dates have not yet changed, but today I was able to do an online reservation in the Swiss Apple Store for pickup tomorrow. :)

I ordered an iPad 2 in Switzerland at about 3am on March 25th... mailing estimate 15 April, delivery estimate 21 April.

The 11 day shipping to the Swedish poster above me is ridiculous. They must be walking it to Stockholm from wherever Apple's European shipment center is. I guess they're probably high-balling the delivery times so we're happy when they typically arrive sooner.

Is something wrong if Apple has not reserved money from my credit card? I ordered 25 march by 1-click. Should they not reserve money when I order and then charge me when it gets to "prepared for shipment"?

I think that there just may be something wrong, Bushiboo. When I ordered on the 25th, Apple reserved the money from my card immediately and it still shows as reserved on my bank account. I didn't use 1 click.

Maybe you should contact Apple and ask them about this?

Can't believe there's still no shipping going on. I thought Apple were just being cautious, but they clearly had no stock set aside for online orders and don't seem to be putting fulfilling online orders at a lower priority than getting stock out to retail stores.

Just a note on my order, I've got "fast ship", stating that items will ship separately as they become available. One would have thought that'd mean the dock and smart covers would have shipped already, but apparently not.

Yer. I don't believe that these daily deliveries to Apple Stores etc are coming from China. I honestly think its a game Apple Marketing are playing, dripping out stock from a central depot to keep "demand" high/publicity up.

If stock is coming in from China a bit at a time, how come my delivery date hasn't moved since ordering? Why should someone who lives close to an Apple Store be able to reserve overnight and walk in next day whereas the likes of me (order 12:30AM 25March) have to wait in line until the end of April? I'm cool with Apple having initial stock for retail, it's what's happened since then that grinds my gears.

Having said that, the ordering estimates could be completely screwed. Apparently, Apple estimate my iPad Camera Connection Kit is going to be delivered today! (no confirmation of shipping, no email, no nothing so I'm not holding my breath).

Yeah, don't hold your breath 'cos according to Apple I should have gotten my Apple Care Protection Plan for the iPad yesterday and I didn't. Apple hasn't send me any shipping confirmation email about this so...It's all one big delusion :rolleyes:

Obviously Apple ships the ordered products at the same time, no matter what they claim otherwise (I just don't get why they claim that in the first place :rolleyes:)

I ordered an iPad, dock, and smart cover on March 25. The estimates were April 15 ship and April 22 deliver for all 3 items. However my smart cover shipped on the 31st separately and arrived at my address in Canada yesterday. So they will ship items individually as they become available. Still no change for my iPad or dock shipping however.

There still seems no word about EU in particular UK orders shipping yet. It seems like both Australian and Canadian orders have started to ship already from the 25th launch date. Here's hoping UK orders start shipping soon. Reserving online is impossible and queuing up at stores is not possible when you have to work full time. I really need to get my iPad before the 21st of this month. What makes it worse is that they are being shipped direct from China and take 9 to 11 days to get here.

I hope the status will change, but I doubt it because according to a thread on the apple forum, it seems that the white iPads ship about 10 days earlier than the estimated date, and about 5 days for the black iPads.

Estimated Shipping: 15 Apr, 2011
Estimated Delivery: 26 Apr, 2011

White 16GB WiFi with engraving

But just received the following email - hopefully means it's close to dispatch:

With reference to your recent order, we would like to inform you that we have split the shipment of your order to expediate items as they become available. As items on your order are dispatched you will receive a dispatch notification email from Apple advising you of expected delivery dates and enabling you to track your order.

The first delivery of your iPad 2 will be made by carrier. You can track this delivery on the following order status link or alternatively on the carriers own website

http://store.apple.com/uk/orderstatus

The remainder of this order will be dispatched by mail and delivered to your shipping address. As your order is being delivered by post there is no online tracking available for this.

but tbh its been saying "Items will be shipped separately as they become available" for a long time on the order status page. I wouldn't get too hopeful. but hopefully it ships tmr because that would be already 2 week.

There seems to a pattern in shipping dates given by apple with just a slight difference no matter where outside the US.

Following is my current order status as today nad has not changed yet and not even my credit card has been charged since the 25th for my iPad so I called apple if there was something wrong with my card but they said it will be charged until it is ready to ship.

Order placed just 20 minutes after International launch date on the 25th

I simply hope that this information is incorrect:
I talked to an Apple employee in Germany shortly and he told me that all European orders with an expected shipment date of April, 15th, will be served at the same time. This is because the logistics system for Europe is completely different to the ones of all the other countries in the world. It seems that one carrier ships all the iPads to Europe on one specific date. It could be some days before the 15th, but he expects it to happen at the 15th since all the orders designated for this day have to be completed.

Just hope that this guy is wrong and that people who ordered the iPad 2 early, receive it early.

Here my order status.

It seems that one carrier ships all the iPads to Europe on one specific date.

This sounds very much like I have experienced previous orders from Apple to Europe. They arrive in bulk and get packed in outer cardboard box (the brown generic one) somewhere in the Netherlands. That's also why we usually are not able to track our products as accurate as US customers but in the last few days of arrival...

btw mine is on Prepared for Shipment status now!

Thanks for reminding me of this widget - I still have it from a previous Apple order - the only problem for me is that when Iinput my order number it only references the Camera Connection Kit (still NYS) and doesn't see the iPad (Prepared for shipping) :confused:

Hoping for a quick change to "Shipped" then I'll try again. Sadly, my "Prepped" status hasn't moved on as quickly as it did for Zerox :(

Figure about a week... wouldn't expect the delivery date to change until they actually ship though as they won't start the clock (so to speak) on their delivery service until it actually leaves Apple.

Oh and another UK'er checking in. Black 32Gb Wi-Fi with Orange smart cover ordered Mar 25th at 12:54am. Was running as Shipping 15th April and delivery on the 26th. UK store 'not yet shipped' but the US one is listing the iPad as prepared for shipment. Oddly the smart cover is still waiting....

Oddly the smart cover is still waiting....

I think you should cancel your smart cover order and re order it because all apart from red has changed dispatched date from 2-3 weeks to 24 hours.
Especially for an orange you can now get it anywhere now I suppose heard there were loads in stock in Apple Stores.

Mine has arrived today! almost 2 weeks ahead of the initial delivery date. Good luck to everyone else for an early arrival :)

Love how your delivery goes from Hong Kong straight to Sydney then where you live I guess Fedex is efficient.

I don't even know why UK is using UPS, mine is circling around the globe, it was in Hong Kong now its in Dubai and no its not going to UK its going to Germany first. Why do this? why not just go straight to bloody UK? stupid UPS.

I guess mine will be signed by Steve Jobs and Jony Ive and TNT have to make a detour to wherever these two are at the moment ... or it's because Friday is my short day at the office (where they deliver it to) and now I have to stay until it arrives ... maybe Steve doesn't like me after all.

My camera kit has just just changed to "Prepared". Not sure why it's just changed as the iPad went from "prepared" to "shipped" earlier on. Originally, I thought they would both arrive at the same time, then we had the email that split stuff up. Not complaining if the iPad arrives first but seems a waste of postage for them both to travel separately if they're both ready.

Where's your iPad now? Still on it's world tour?:p

lol, it left dubai like at 17:50 local time I don't know what's that in UK time.

I remember getting my macbook air and UPS shipped from
China --> Hong Kong ----> Korea ---> Kazakhstan ---> Poland ----> Germany then to UK, basically more places than I have been in a week.

So far my iPad is just
China --> Hong Kong ---> Dubai

I don't know where it'll land next but it is sure landing in Germany some time. (and hopefully UK)
My scheduled delivery however has gone from April 14 --> April 13, now its saying April 12th so should be here on time hopefully

I've seen a few TNT inventories that go straight from there to Holland (or other EuroHub). I wonder if all UPS shipments "re-fuel" in Dubai these days? Can't remember getting any other Apple kit via UPS.

In the past it's mostly been Kuehne + Nagel for the long haul, then TNT or similar for the UK leg.

My iPad is now in Germany (I'm in the UK SnaPli!):
Koeln, Germany 04/09/2011 6:38 A.M. Package data processed by brokerage. Waiting for clearance.

..but the tracking info says there is an "Exception", described as an unforeseen event which may alter the delivery date. Anyone else seeing this?
I'm assuming it's a customs thing as it enters the EU but why would this be "unforeseen"?

Of course, altering the delivery date could mean earlier :D

I'm going to try and stay away from the computer for the rest of the day now ;)

Hi

I bought on the French Apple Store online the iPad 2, the 25th, march (8:21AM GMT+1)
Estimated production delay : 2-3 weeks
Just after the payment, I received an email from Apple : Estimated production delay = 3/4 weeks !
And then the estimated delivery date has moved to the 4th of May.
I called yesterday at the Apple phone service, they told me they had a major problem in the EU distribution platform. But as it has been recently solved, the delays are about to be decreased. It impacted the whole EU distribution.
So he promised me I'll get soon an email about a new estimated delivery date, which should be very earlier.

Cheers.

China 04/09/2011 7:15 P.M. Order Processed: Ready for UPS

I'm assuming the exception in Germany is waiting for customs to clear it, might be a tad slower as it was early morning on a Saturday when it arrived. No big deal though, it's at least in the right continent now :D

Oh, and thanks for the heads up on the smart covers zerox17, as soon as the iPad was confirmed shipped I cancelled the smart cover which wasn't even prepared for shipment and re-ordered from the on-line store. The US site at least reckons it's been prepared for shipment and should be here sometime in the early part of next week. I'm still a TAD worried about Orange cover / Black iPad, normally I'm the most conservative picker of colour schemes you'll ever come across, but if it's horrible I'll use it as the travel cover and get a leather one for my birthday :cool:

Still, with a delivery date (for me) of Thursday, that gives time for stuff to happen early next week and still beat the estimated ETA. Perhaps a Wednesday delivery?

Basically, the customs information ("package data") is processed by UPS at the Köln/Bonn Airport while the actual package is still in transit. This happens to avoid a delay in Cologne while UPS waits for clearance.

I know they ship during the night probably tonight to UK because that's what happen to my Macbook air. it delivered on a monday as they start work at midnight. Again hopefully. but its says I'll get it by tuesday.

So is yours listed as still in Koeln? Thanks for waiting for the rest of us to catch up with you, I thought you were a couple of days ahead?

What's your current delivery date?

My 64g black iPad was listed as "prepared for shipment" early this morning, although the ship and delivery dates haven't changed.

Well, I have some kinda change: now the APP and iPad are listed separately as in " APP Not yet shipped" and "iPad Not yet shipped" :rolleyes:

To my calculation something should happen soon like in this week...:rolleyes:

Same story here as well. I guess the status isn't updated, but don't worry: our iPad 2's are just on their way to their destination. We'll have to patiently wait... :)

@Zerox: What's your delivery date? today? ...or Wednesday? Must be very frustrating knowing you could go and collect quicker than waiting for delivery!

I'd been expecting mine to make the hop from Germany to UK last night but I can't see any UPS flights scheduled from Keoln/Bon today, unless they don't post them. Not even sure where it would be flying into - though UPS main hub here seems to be Tamworth so I'm presuming a flight into Birmingham.

Ah well, still reporting a delivery of sometime Wednesday so I'll relax and let it happen. Just fun playing the "tracking" game ;)

Delivery date: tuesday for the ipad and wednesday for smart cover.
basically I hate UPS and Syncreon (whatever that is)

Mines just left Chek Lap Kok, Hong Kong, same as the guys above, i had that clearance in Koeln, Germany thing (which I though was the actual Ipad) now the device is shipping over :D

so I guess ill see if I can find the flight now :) tracking is fun!

:eek: What's going on! I thought our iPads were sitting in Germany together, but it looks like xerox17virus' has skipped ahead and is in the UK. I thought in the end that we were mostly all on the same schedule, but no, someones got to be a day early.... :p


Btw, UPS says Ipad is still in Germany. :( So it does indeed look like a Wednesday delivery....at least I can make arrangements for someone to be at home now.
