    I've been watching Best Buy all week to see if they would get any of the iPad Pro accessories in-stock before Apple (it's where I got my 128GB SG iPP). All week both the Pencil and Keyboard have been saying "Coming Soon", but as of this morning you can now check stores within 250 miles of you for stock, which leads me to believe that the 20th was likely a good prediction for when stock was supposed to start really arriving in stores for these products.

    Keep an eye on Best Buy today; they usually update the stock info on their site starting at 10am for your area and then it can change throughout the day.

    EDIT:
    Here are direct links to the Apple Pencil and Smart Keyboard on the BB site. I am not in any way affiliated with BB, just FYI, and I get no money or recompense for sharing these links.

    "We're sorry, your item is not available within 250 miles of 55391"

    lol...if they're just starting to sell it today, you've got about another hour and a half before you'll start seeing stores report their stock for the website. Then it'll fluctuate throughout the day.

    My store doesn't even open for an hour and a half so I'd give the website some time - needless to say I'll be checking this very closely today

    In stock pickup is the only option for me. Still not available for pickup in 250 miles though.

    Unavailable within 250 miles away was the same thing last week early in the day on Wednesday when the Pro went on sale.

    Confident some stores will have it later today after inventory is updated.

    Boynton Beach, FL and Pembroke Pines, FL Best Buy stores both show stock and I have placed an order for store pickup at both.

    Assuming they fulfill, I'll be going to Boynton, but happy to pick up at Pembroke if another FL member here needs one.

    That 250 miles thing is not right, I tried my zip code and that is what the result was. I tried another zip code 50 miles away and one store has it available, I know that store is not 250 miles from my zip code.

    Excellent ... wonder if my 11/11 4AM EST pre-order keyboard will arrive before I can just walk into a Best Buy and buy one ... (nearest Apple store >1.5 hours away)

    I had been stalking this site since last Wednesday looking for the Pencil to become available. Got lucky this Tuesday at an Apple Store. Checked this morning on Best Buy's site and none within 250 miles of me. Hopefully they start supplying more everywhere soon.

    Has anyone physically walked into a BB to see if they are stocked?

    I went to a Best Buy last week, and I saw the shelf where they were supposed to be stocked, but they were all gone :(
