Do you think Apple under estimated the iPad Pro 12.9 (2nd generation) demand?

    It's in stock in my area, both LTE and wifi models. The 512 GB 12.9 is more limited based off my searchings.

    It's 1-2 weeks on Apple site here so it's not super easy to get one but I think both models seem decent to get.

    My ATT order for 256 SG showed two day shipping when I ordered on the 15th, then it was backordered to July 15-20th.

    I just picked up a Silver 256GB WIFI 12.9 in South Bend. They had gotten a few more in today. Looks like Apple shipped a few more out to stores for the weekend

    They have been available everywhere since release day where I am. I think they are too expensive to be flying off the shelves for the average user.

    1-2 weeks is normal.

    The comparable product is MacBook Air ($999). If you want 256GB or 512GB, it won't arrive until July 6.

    Pro 12.9 64GB and 256GB have been pretty easy to get in Los Angeles area (there are plenty of Apple Stores here) with all configurations available during first week. Dunno about now.

    It's the Pro 12.9 512GB that's on backorder everywhere. I think at one point, you couldn't even order it from Best Buy website.

    It's worth the wait. Really enjoying this device. I have the cellular 512 space grey.

    All colours are pretty much available for immediate walk-in collection in London.
    Also checked a few other places and same for those too..

    I guess you're just unlucky maybe?

    Same in San Diego. For my use, the 256GB model seems to be the sweet spot and they aren't available until July 17 in the stores here.

    Same in South Carolina, July 17th. Wish I had picked one up on launch day.
    Are they more in demand than I thought or just not enough to go around?

    The Pro 12.9 256GB was available in LA on launch day and the day after (I was checking in-store stock via Apple website and there were 10 Apple Stores within a 20-mile radius, iirc). It was 512GB that was uber scarce.

    My 512/LTE/SG was supposed to be here today or Monday according to Best Buy for Business logistics (on Tuesday). It hasn't shipped yet, and is once again unavailable. I'm assuming that means I won't get it next week either.

    The kids and I are antsy to try it out!!

    Around here and everywhere online, you cannot find a 12.9 Space Grey Wifi 512 GB in stock. Plenty of silver and gold, but no space grey. Apple really needs to offer the black bezel on another color! :confused:

    Yep. Black bezel would actually be a nice fit with Gold. Pro 12.9 512GB LTE Space Grey is what I ordered.

    All of the Space Gray WiFi models are not available in NYC until July 17th. I did not check the other colors or cellular. When I went in on launch day (early in the morning), I thought for sure they would not have any SG 12.9", very surprised and delighted that they did have the color and storage configuration I wanted.

    May the stock improve for everyone so they can get it sooner rather than later.

    They are scarce here in S. Fl only one of the 6 Apple stores have silver 64gb wifi 12.9's, and that's for tomorrow, none at AT&T. None at Best Buy, but at Best Buy you can still order some models for quick delivery. I went to Best Buy the other day and ordered one from my phone and received today.

    They are not available anywhere where I live including my wireless provider. I had to order my 12.9 256GB Space Gray Wifi plus Cellular model from a site other than Apple as Apple was out too.
