    Whatever reasons for the pencil to be short: manufacturing issues, glitch in launch day pickup, miss-shipped to Sephora.

    Why are the keyboard delays bound to the same dates as the pencil?

    I got a good laugh out of it as well :D

    Both the pencil and keyboard are new items, they have built many iPads before. New products / components always seem to have this issue with Apple. Same thing with the watch bands and the hold up on the first touchID sensors.

    Whats funny is that I got a "your product is ready" email from the apple store right after writing this, and now have both accessories. They almost tried to cancel them on me yesterday :)

    Mind sharing your geography and when you placed your order? No good news for me yet and I placed my order minutes after the store went live.

    Sarasota, FL. I placed it the second the store went live to ship to the store. At the time, it also said available for pickup, which of course was not.

    I was lucky to get both today!

    The person who called me to apologize from Apple offered me a Smart Cover for the trouble yesterday, too.

    I'm betting we all get up and check the Apple Store online tomorrow and we will see pencils and smart keyboards available. They're holding stock for official launch on the 13th, guarantee it.

    Nope. I was just at my local Apple Store. None in stock. And they had no idea when they would get them.
