4th Gen iPads With LTE Now Arriving at Apple Retail Stores




9to5Mac is reporting that Apple Retail Stores are taking delivery of new fourth-generation iPad models with LTE cellular (though not the iPad mini), but they have not begun sales of them yet.

Quote:
Apple has begun stocking its U.S.-based retail stores with LTE versions of the fourth-generation iPad. The product is not on sale yet, but they could go on sale at anytime. Stores have been instructed to wait until word from corporate comes through to begin sales.
Cellular-capable iPad mini and 4th-gen iPad orders are expected to be delivered to US customers beginning on Thursday and Friday of this week, and it's likely that retail store sales of cellular-capable fourth-generation iPads and iPad mini's will begin on Friday. Recently, Apple has generally launched iOS products on Fridays.

Are Apples pre-orders always this screwy? I've had the 16th, then the 23rd, then the 16th again, now it's the 21st. I even get an email (6 days ago) that said it would be shipping in 5 days, and still nothing.

Relax, folks. He was only asking about iTunes 11, you don't need to jump down his throat.

One great thing with iTunes 11 is the play next option. Allowing you to queue up songs without needing to make playlists.

Apple would rather pay 22M to be licensed to use the fancy clock app design on ipad than add GPS to make it more cost effective. So do they really care about the consumers?

They cared enough to use a $22 million dollar fancy clock design.

This is great

Now they can not have stock on this device just like they don't have stock on iPad minis.

Well the wifey's ipad 3 4g is having some issues. I'm not excited about swapping it out for a refurb. Too bad they don't have some sort of trade up option. I assume they don't have any more brand new ipad 3's w/ cellular.

Stay on topic, this news thread is not about iTunes or iMacs, its about the LTE equipped iPad.

It's silly of them. Every time I update my iPad I ask $130 for GPS

Nope

The refurb will be indistinguishable from new--no scratches, dents, etc. Also, Apple most certainly has a trade up option, its just you have to pay for an entirely new iPad 4.

I'm not sure which parts of Orlando you've been to. But I have AT&T and I've seen LTE just about every part I've been to. From the I-Drive area, to Waterford Lakes, to MCO, to W. Colonial Dr and Metro West. Some areas are faster than others, but the speeds are pretty respectable.
