In the grand tradition of the "iPad shipped" thread, here's a new one for tracking the accessories.

I just received my shipping notification email from Apple. I ordered by dock and my case at 5:32PDT (along with my 32GB WiFi iPad).

My case has now shipped, is coming via FEDEX, and is expected at my door on 4/6.

Anyone else getting the same info?

My dock has also shipped but I will be waiting till the end of April for my 3G and mid April for my cover.

That's odd. My dock is still showing as "Prepared to Ship." But I have a FedEx tracking number for my case. Grrrr. You'd think they would have doubled that up.

Ditto. Just got the notice from Apple that the case shipped this morning via FedEx, estimated delivery date of 4/6.

My Case has showed "Prepared for Shipment" since Weds. I hope that they're delayed in updating and that it has been shipped. I'm traveling on Tuesday, and don't want the iPad traveling bare. ;-)

VGA adapter has been prep'd for shipment since like Wednesday or Tuesday. Still says ships by the 3rd...

I was kind of hoping it would show up Monday at the latest, but doesn't look like it.

Both my dock and my case are en route. But with two different shipping numbers.

Ordered my case and keyboard dock on 3/16.

Case is April 15 ship.

Dock is May 28 ship.

:(

Hope they have some cases in the store tomorrow.

GeekLawyer
Apr 2, 2010, 11:30 AM
I ordered both my case and dock within a couple minutes of the store coming back. My order status has always said "ships by 4/3" for both. Since they shipped on 4/2, I guess that's true.

If UPS comes early enough tomorrow, I may be brave and head to the Apple Store to see if I can get the case, at least, before the scheduled delivery on the 6th.

My dock has shipped via FedEx Ground with a delivery date of 4/7 and my case is still waiting to be shipped.

Ugh, I'm P'Oed right now. - I just got notified that my Case shipped Via FedEx Ground.

Which leads me to believe that it's being shipped from within the US.

BUT Delivery isn't until Wednesday 4/7 the day after I leave for Vacation :-(

And yes, it would appear they're coming from within the US.

UPDATE

Both my Case and Dock has Shipped. Dock Says Wednesday Delivery and Case says Tuesday Delivery.

In the past I have known FedEx to "Over-quote" time so it makes them look better when it gets there a day early.

I don't get my order right now. The keyboard dock just shipped (said that it was going to ship on the 15) which is good but my case still has not shipped and that was said to ship by tommorow (ordered 5:38am on 12/3). Think I should call up Apple and see what's going on?

Edit: Forgot to say that the tracking number isn't working yet (it's a UPS one) and the case is supposedly prepared for shipment.

I received this email from our good friend is Cupertino:

We are pleased to inform you that one or more of your items has shipped. Please see the details of the shipment below. If you ordered more than one item, they may ship separately.

It is being shipped Fedex Ground.

My docked shipped with delivery on the 6th. It was sent 2 day service. FedEx says it left their facility in Ontario California today and is in transit. I live two hours away in San Diego, it will be down here tonight.

Will they deliver it on Monday or will they do Saturday delivery for 2 day service? I doubt it will be delivered on Tuesday, once it leaves their facility in Ontario, I will get it the next delivery day. With UPS I usually get the package the day they say it will arrive. With FedEx I usually get them one or two days early.

By the way, I paid for expidited delivery, hoping to get the accessories sooner, and they refunded the full amount.

Well my keyboard dock still isn't showing up under UPS tracking but Apple says it will deliver by the 6th. My case's tracking number is showing up in Fedex. Apple says I will have it by the 12th (which is dumb as I ordered it at 5:38am on 12/3) but Fedex says I will get it by the 6th. I sure hope Fedex is right.

I was thinking about hitting up my Best Buy... my Apple Stores will be packed. But, I think I will use the iPad at home sans the case, and I don't go back into work until Tuesday, and will have the case by then. If I am up and really bored, which I will likely be, I might venture out in the morning for a case.

UPS is notorious for coming very late, as I live near the hub. I am usually their last stop before heading in for the night. FedEx on the other hand, is always here by 1pm.

Wow... they must have a bunch of Distribution centers across the US or something.

Scratch that -- it shipped from Memphis and arrived in Olive Branch.

My dang Ipad hasn't budged from KY though.

Like the other poster, I'll be around the house for the most part anyway, until the case actually arrives. So... no big deal.

FedEx Home Delivery (a.k.a FedEx Ground) delivers on Saturdays but not Mondays. They take Sunday and Monday off. Most FedEx Home Delivery orders are actually delivered by contracted third-parties.

I actually forgot about that earlier, and now wish I had paid for priority shipping even more!

That sort of irritates me almost to the point of considering a trip to BestBuy or the Apple Store for a dock at least. If I refuse delivery, is there any sanction from Apple aside from a refund of the purchase price?

I was weak. After UPS delivered my iPad, I really wanted to have my case and dock. A call to my local Apple store confirmed "plenty" of accessories. A quick trip later and I had a new case and dock.

I'll take delivery from FedEx of both next week and return those to the Apple store.

This iPad is amazing. :)
