    Stand in line at the Apple Store and be there at/before opening. Otherwise you can try Target or BestBuy -- those are my backup options tomorrow.

    Hopefully it is nothing like the original pencil that was tough to find for months.

    I have the same feeling.

    I found my original Apple Pencil at a college book store. Much easier to get there than it was to find at an Apple store.

    I ordered two pencils on the 1st through Apple and have a Nov 20-26 delivery estimate. Still hoping it gets bumped up but might try to go to a nearby store and see if I can get one there.

    So, I got the notice for "ready for pickup" on my SmartFolio case this afternoon, so I dropped by the Apple Store after work. I asked about Pencil and what my chances are of getting one tomorrow.

    He said the in-store stock/inventory goes live at 8am and store opens at 10am. He told me to try and grab one for in-store pickup tomorrow at 8am, but if not, just come at opening and I should be able to get one. Fingers crossed!

    My Apple Store Pencil order isn't shipping until Nov 24th-27th, so I'm hoping that I'll be able to just grab one tomorrow and cancel my Apple Store online order (and my backup BHPhoto.com order).

    Good luck to you all tomorrow, and keep us posted! :)

    No -- at my Apple Store that opens at 10am, that store's inventory online starts showing up around 8am. So at 8am tomorrow, I'll go to the normal online Apple Store, and see if Pencil shows up for "Pick up in Store" and at my location. If it doesn't show up, he said just come around 10am at opening (I plan to get there at 9am and loiter), and they should have Pencils in stock.

    Idk, Apple really has their **** together these days with release. There was a shortage of AirPods at launch, but since then these releases have been so streamlined and widely available.

    Apple says pencils are back ordered. My iPad gets delivered Friday, but my pencil and keyboard a week later. Contacted Apple and asked about store stock. The rep I talked told me the pencil and keyboards are back ordered. I still may check tomorrow.

    I ordered mine for store pickup this morning around 6:30am -- planning to go get it after work.

    Now to see if I can get BestBuy to match Costco's $899 price for the 256 wifi... otherwise it's still another week for the iPad itself for me.

    Store pickup available for today in a lot of stores. I just checked the NY/NJ area and it's readily available.
