Unfortunately BestBuy does not carry any cellular iPad Pro 10.5 inch 512GB space gray in stock where I live.

Yes check for anyone you need, I was able to purchase and have in two days. I got a cellular space gray which is hard to get. It was really easy, and did it online.

I luckily got mine, (most likely cause someone cancelled their order.) Best Buy's stock is completely out in my district of all but a few 64GB versions (a 250+ mile area)
2 Are said to be in transit to 2 stores but that most likely means they were ordered for in-store pick-up. Even Apple.com shows July 18th as being the soonest availability.
I get that iPads aren't as popular as iPhones but I think Apple screwed up this time around. The last iPP had plenty of pre-orders but didn't have nearly as many pre-ordering problems and such low stock everywhere. I was lucky to get mine.
IMO, I think they underestimated the popularity of this new one.

Yes, I think Apple miscalculated based on previous 12.9 sales, the ios 11 update is what convinced me to go with the bigger one. It now makes sense.

picked up my 256gb Space Gray LTE at launch day, literally got an email from Apple about the launch, and ordered on BB online, walked in and out in 10 min

I must have gotten the last 256GB Space Gray unlocked LTE model in SoCal. Only found one left at the Signal Hill BB in Long Beach last week, and after I picked it up BB's website stated there were none in stock within a 250 mile radius.

They were in stock briefly this morning for shipping and delivery to store. Now poof again!

They checked on mine again and said they expected them in this week - here is hoping.

My preorder failed with BB. They said I would have to wait weeks to get the 512 GB. I decided to try to order on launch day. I was able to get it ordered and then picked it up 3 days later. Went 256gb with LTE

Same thing happened to me, I was one of the first preorders and it went through for 5 days then randomly cancelled and I then had to just order the 256GB and barely got that one. Apple screwed up in not having enough stock, but BB screwed up in not having a good system to make sure they actually have the stock numbers so the item can be shipped.
When I check our inventory at my store it's always off and incorrect, so while Apple miscalculated demand, BB completely screwed the pooch on this one. They still use computer systems from 2001. *Ugggh

just today they showed up on the site. in my case i want the 512 SG lte 12.9 model.

in less than 30 minutes i had a "shipped" email with track number...

.. deliver on JULY 3rd!
That is what I'm waiting for to ship... and it didn't today. :(

Hopefully they sent some inventory to the Business side of the fence. Waiting until the 10th will suck! Lol

That is exciting!!!

I"M hoping to get a shipping notice today, I see the retail side is still showing it in stock at 1:25pm eastern time today. My account manager said earlier in the week they hoped to get them this week. Fingers crossed - because the darn kid just took the 9.7 from be before I could play with Affinity Photo!

The 256gb models are hard to find in my area (NYC boroughs). Picked up one Wednesday after seeing it come back in stock the day before.

Its coming from UTAH. I verified the track number and it indeed on its way... really shocked that i could just do that and it shipped so quickly....
The other day when I read this - about an hour later I got an email about a shipping label from Utah. I got my hopes up for nothing... my daughter ordered some stupid skirt! LOL

SOOOO, mine is still slated to ship the 14th - despite them showing stock and the ability to get it before hand with a new order both on the retail AND edu site.

Sigh. Lesson in patience.

Has anyone purchase a iPad Pro From Best Buy????????
Just bought a 512 GB Silver 10.5in AT&T one on Saturday.

I pick it up on Thursday.

Reason is that I get points for doing good work, and I turn those in for BB cards, and so I had about $750 in BB cards, so buying it there made sense.

Which means that they'll think that the iPad doldrums are over, and then have a bunch for the next model, which will come up short in sales, then iPad Pro X+2 will also have this issue, so the next great iPad Pro that comes out will be under produced, like this one.

:oops:

Apparently - just to confuse and irk impatient mothers! She was at work, so I sent her a screen shot and told her, NOT COOL to do this to your poor mom and sister! LOL

I sent an email to the account manager - I doubt there is anything that can be done (she probably isn't working today), but at least I know I tried.
