Apple's Shipping Estimates for New iPad Orders Fall to 3-5 Business Days in North America




Availability of the new iPad continues to improve, as evidenced by shipping estimates for new orders now registering at 3-5 business days in Apple's online stores for the United States, Canada, and Mexico. The change comes less than two weeks after shipping estimates improved to 5-7 business days.




The shorter timeframes have not yet propagated to Apple's other online store distribution channels, with stores in the Asia Pacific region continuing to list estimates of 5-7 business days and stores in Europe maintaining estimates of 1-2 weeks that have been in place for some time now.

Apple CEO Tim Cook noted during last week's earnings conference call that supplies of the new iPad had been constrained for the entirety of the the three weeks the device was available during the company's fiscal second quarter, and that supplies remain constrained even today.

And that cool engraving also kills resale value.

Only if you have your name or something really weird engraved on it.

ipad 32gb shipping

Ipad shipping may be faster than the Apple estimates. I purchases my 32gb ipad 3 on Wednesday 4/2 and it shipped the following day. It's suppose to arrive 4 days sooner than Apple's estimate at checkout!!
