    Apple Retail Canada is now showing on the web that the iPad Air 2 is available in store. Can someone in Canada confirm they've actually seen them at the Apple Store?

    Why not just call your store?

    I agree. What a mess. I called another Apple Store in Vancouver and the person said probably next week. When I informed her it's showing as available in retail stores in Canada she back tracked and said maybe sooner.

    I just picked mine up from Best Buy in Toronto. Some Best Buys are showing stock online so do a check! I called apple at Yorkdale and Fairview and neither of them had it today.. They said they weren't even sure when they're getting it.

    I checked BestBuy.ca and they're showing the entire iPad Air 2 line as not being available in store. Are you talking about a different iPad?

    I was told to check back tomorrow also. Can't believe best buy had them and Apple didn't.
    Now my delivery is for Friday. Guess I won't buy one tomorrow because I wasn't waiting till Monday.

    Bestbuy stores in Toronto has them. I picked up my 16GB Gold Wi-fi at the Warden Bestbuy. A friend of mine was able to pick his at the Richmond Hill Bestbuy.

    The website shows stock in Downsview and Leaside too.

    You will not be able to reserve online though so you should just go to the store.

    They had plenty of stock since this afternoon.

    I'm in Vancouver and unfortunately it appears Best Buy in the east favours their customers more. Nothing available here in BC.

    I don't exactly know how these things work. I'm surprised Bestbuys here got them before the Apple Stores.

    I am also puzzled why Apple hasn't officially announced a launch date.

    Apple has really let down the Canadian market with this release. It's still not showing reservable on their web site and the Air 2 has already been out for 2 days in Australia, UK and the US. Unfortunately there is nothing the Canadian customer can do to show its dissatisfaction.

    I called Rideau Centre Apple, they don't know if they're getting stock today.
