    As a FYI, for those who pre-ordered the iPad 4th generation from Apple in the USA. If your item shows "Preparing for Shipment" in your order status, you can try to use the FedEx reference number trick to find your tracking info. Simply enter the telephone number Apple has under your account as the reference number. My iPad 4 64GB Black shows it has been picked up in Pennsylvania this morning, Oct. 28, scheduled for delivery on Nov. 2nd. This is the first time for me during a preorder that the product hasn't originated from China.

    Update: If you don't see your package via FedEx, login into https://supportprofile.apple.com/ and get your iPad 4's serial number. If its there, use it to search by reference via UPS. I haven't had anyone confirm a UPS shipment of the iPad 4 yet but there are some for the iPad Mini via UPS.

    Cool catch! Same here. Shipped from Middletown PA scheduled for 11/2. Already redirected to Kinkos so I don't miss it on Friday :)

    Isn't working for me. Apple doesn't always use FedEx, right?

    Hmmm. I thought that when they chose a shipping service, it was for everyone in the USA. Go to https://supportprofile.apple.com/ Does it show your iPad 4 serial number yet? If not, then the phone number reference tracking via FEDEX will probably not work yet.

    Apple just sold out of first deliveries of iPad 4. So there is a demand. Plus when news breaks about the newest speed test results it may even get pushed back further.

    ----------

    Mine is right there with urs. We won't see any movement on it until Thursday. !!

    Mine's in Pennsylvania, coming to south eastern Massachusetts. I expect it won't ship until like Thursday or something as PA is only a few states away.

    Where exactly do I find my tracking # after I found my serial number? I can't seem to find the number anywhere on my support page.

    If you didn't find it with "Track by Reference" with your phone number via FedEx, goto to ups.com and do a track by reference using that serial number as the reference number. Let us know if you find it since we haven't had any confirmed iPad 4's shipping via UPS yet. So far they've been via FedEx originating in California or Pennsylvania.

    IPad 4 LTE update

    Mine had previously said delivers 11/26, looked a couple of minutes ago and now it just says ships mid November.

    Not sure if that means it could be earlier or later.

    I really hate to sound stupid but i'll sound stupid anyway. What format do you use to enter your phone number: (xxx) xxx-xxxx or xxx-xxx-xxxx or xxxxxxxxxx (substitute the x's for numbers)
