    Anyone order from Best Buy? I ordered mine this morning and it shows processing with all accessories and the iPad with a date of 11/7/2018.

    I ordered an 11" 64gb (not going to be taking a ton of pictures, just drawing on it), a keyboard folio, and the pencil of course. Wish I could afford the 12.9 but the extra 200 dollars plus the extra cost of the folio would've been too much, plus I already got a 13" MacBook along with an XS.

    Same here. I ordered an 11” 256gb in Space Gray last night. Currently showing as:

    Status: Pre-Ordered

    You can pick it up on Wed, November 7. We'll email you when it's ready.

    Do pick ups generally work quicker? I know Best Buy uses UPS. I tried to pick up but it said "shipping only".

    Have a 12.9 256 space grey on pre-order for pick-up on the 9th. Picking it up in New Hampshire from Boston since I won’t have to pay for taxes. Success.

    I’m not sure. I’ve never pre-ordered via Best Buy. But I do expect to have it on Nov. 7th. We’ll see.

    My 11 celluar still shows shipping on the 9th. If store gets them on the 7th will just get it at the store and return the other.

    The last iPad I preordered for launch day pick up at Best Buy too. I just went there after work, no line, just straight to the pick up counter and got just like if I had ordered anything else.

    I pre-ordered a 12.9" Space Gray 64gb Wifi+Cellular, scheduled for store pick up on Friday 9th. Also got a keyboard folio go to with it which should get delivered on Wednesday.

    I have an Apple Store gift card which I want to use to get a Pencil.

    Btw, it it possible to get the monthly payment version of AppleCare at the store after you buy?

    You have to buy the iPad and the pencil together in the same order from the apple store for both to be covered under AppleCare.

    I wasn’t going to get a new one. Till I was offered $575 for my old one. Anyways. I ordered from Bestbuy. Cause Apple is on back order for most of their models. But it says available for pickup on 11-7 for my Bestbuy order. I would be shocked if that changed. As I don’t see iPads being that hard to find compared to iPhones. Anyhow, we will see. So far it says I will be able to go in that day and do store pickup for the 11inch model I preordered.

    I wasn't going to get one since I have a 10.5" Pro but decided to roll the dice with AT&T Next to ease the pain. Wife will take the 10.5" if I decide to keep it.

    Ordered 11/1 10:31am CST on BestBuy.com

    12.9" 256GB LTE Space Gray (AT&T)

    In my experience with Best Buy, they usually are available at open or shortly there after and arrived the night before. Don't quote me though lol

    You go to store pickup with ID and order email.
    Unless they don’t ship us enough you’ll be fine.

    Not at BBY. Gotta get full price.

    Midday/evening and ready the following morning. iPads may be drop shipped since this is a Wednesday release.

    Got my Amazon magnetic back folio case in and my tempered glass screen protector. Folio keyboard delivers 11/7. Pencil 11/16.
    I’m thinking about taking off work early on Wednesday. I might have a doctors appointment. Get Best Buy a little early.

    Two parts of my order say shipped, with an “awaiting ups pickup” status. Folio keyboard case still stuck in preparing.

    My silver 11 wifi 256 still shows in pre-order. The local stores show space grays in stock but not silver models...
