    Do you think the personal pickup option will show up tonight? I'm going to try to pick up a 9.7 Pro in-store tomorrow morning regardless, but I'm hoping the personal pickup online ordering option will be possible.

    It will need to be in the store inventory system in order to give the option. You may want to call the store you are planning to go to tomorrow and see if they recieved a shipment in today.

    I think it will go live tomorrow morning. When the big pro came out last year, I was undecided and almost did store pickup that morning at 10am but wanted to feel how heavy it was before purchasing. Used in store pickup option to see that my store still had stock. Got to the mall by 10:30am to find that my size and configuration was sold out (thanks to a foreigner literally buying eight of them with cash). I was so pissed as I stood there next to him with his pile of iPads to be flipped. Moral of the story, get there early and use pickup if possible.

    I'm not seeing that on my end, either through the Apple app or the website. Best Buy's pickup options are also now available, so I've already placed my order with them (9.7/128/SG/cellular).

    Its open now showing availability. Every store for 500 miles has for example a 32gb gray wifi

    iPads are rarely in short supply.

    This iPad is a slight downgrade to an already existing pro. There is not a lot of hype for this one outside of the vocal minority on these forums that ordered one. You will easily be able to find one in a local store today.

    There is very little hype for this iPad, you can easily pick up any model tomorrow


    Plus, I expect places like Best Buy and staples to start discounts in a month or so like we saw with the iPad Pro

    You mean it has as much hype as any recent ipad release, which is always much much less than iphones, other than the vocal MINorities here which are the detractors/anti-Apple

    iPads RARELY have lines/hype after the very first one being a completely new product to the market. Doesnt mean they didnt have 2-3 million pre-orders.

    You dont hear hype about the iphone SE either and it had quite a few million pre-ordered.

    There doesn't seem to be a lot of excitement about this new iPad and there should be - it is fantastic. :) Love mine!

    And that's Apple's iPad problem, they last so long no need for most people to upgrade often. I still do, but I don't need to.
