Forums seem to be filled with people who ordered directly through Apple and most have seemed to gotten theirs. I posted this on another thread, so it seems Apple is plenty stocked: So my question is, has anyone received an iPad Air 2 yet from an AT&T pre-order? I am a former AT&T employee, so my best friend is still employed with the company. She informs me that they don't even have any stock to sell in the backroom yet so at least they're not neglecting pre-order people like the iPhone 6/6+ mess. My ship dates still remain unchanged at "Preparing to Ship - 11/3/14 through 11/7/14" but it would be nice to have them sooner, considering every Apple Store within 100 miles has them in plentiful stock.
