    It seems there might be a delay in the US iPad Air 2 LTE/Cellular deliveries. Or, maybe there isn't and people are just over eager.

    I ordered a 128gb Space Grey Cellular shipped to NY on Friday the 17th. I placed my order via the app on my iphone 6.

    My status has remained:

    Processing Items
    Available to ship: 4-6 business days
    Delivers: Oct 24 - Oct 28 by Standard Shipping

    My credit card has not been charged.

    Let's try to keep this thread limited to US Cellular status. Not to be xenophobic or anti-wifi, but unless you ordered a cellular model shipped to the US, please don't post here.

    Has anyone with a US cellular ipad air 2 had movement beyond "processing items?" Anyone had their card charged?

    Thanks for starting this thread. Clearly something is up with the cellular models in the US.

    I ordered a Space Grey 64 GB Cellular shortly after it was available & received the confirmation email at 11:13 am EST on Friday.
    Expected delivery date to Western NY is October 23-27th on Apple.com, 1800MyApple & iOS Store App.
    I received a pending charge on my card yesterday for the full amount of the iPad.

    I don't have a lot of experience preordering items from Apple, but from what I've read it would be unlike Apple to give an estimate and not alert their customers if they can't meet that date.

    My CC was charged yesterday AM -- still listed as a "pending" charge, not completed. Apple order "Delivers Oct 22-24" is still pending. I'm 1 day ground delivery from PA and 2 day from TN plus China can be 1 day so no "fears" Apple won't meet its delivery commitment.

    Ordered mine within 5 min. of going on sale and is still says processing and I have a pending charge for it. I then ordered another yesterday and it also still says processing but not charged yet.

    Both are 64gb Cellular. I live in Ohio and when I ordered the iPhone 6 I saw nothing but processing until the day before (Thursday) it then delivered on Friday.
    So I guess the cellular models could be in us already and they are staggering shipments for some unknown reason which is why the delivery dates say 22-24, it may depend on which model you ordered.

    Did we ever hear anything more from the guy who had the FCC exception on his UPS delivery?

    I wonder if calling Apple to ask if there's anything up would help...

    There was a pending charge on my card and the balance reflected the full price of the iPad. Today however the charge is gone and funds are available.

    My pending charge dropped off (amex). Why are each of these device launches becoming a bigger cluster-f than the last? I've ordered each iOS device generation (both iPhone and iPad), and this cycle has been awful.

    I am and have been enjoying using the case that arrived Monday. I pretend that I'm using the new air 2. Works flawlessly in imagination mode.

    Ordered SG 16GB Wifi + LTE on Saturday, October 18.

    Still shows up as "processing" with only a $1 authorization on my CC. Expected delivery still shows as 10/23-10/27, shipping to central Virginia.

    Also I checked my Apple Support Profile and the device is not listed there yet, either.

    I find the CC charges interesting. Mine charged the full amount on 10/17 and is still pending, has been that way since 10/17.

    But some folks report a recent charge, some report a $1. And now some are dropping off.

    It makes no sense.

    Ordered directly from AT&T around 12:30pm EDT on Friday, October 17th. This has been my original window from the start, but I'm still a little disappointed. Usually AT&T is very conservative about their ship times, but it seems this one may be completely accurate. LAME! :(
