Just want to bump this since, you know, we actually have pre-orders now.

Everyone still scheduled for an Oct 23rd delivery?

Yep! And I made a mistake of ordering the Logitech Keyboard from Logitech and didn’t realize Apple had it too.. and I can’t even cancel my order through Logitech.

I didn’t know it was out even tho I was on the Apple page at that time until 45 mins later and I literally had it in my basket for pick up on the 23rd but then it became unavailable. Now it says nov 10 for shipping. I’ll check the store again on the day of its release. Maybe it becomes available again for pick up. That’s how I got my Watch early after all

Oh that sucks. Have you tried other retailers like Best Buy etc?

Has anyone moved to preparing for shipment yet?

If they're aiming for Friday delivery, and I'm guessing they have a supply here in North America already, rather than shipping directly from China, I would guess that for those of us in Canada and the US it won't advance to "preparing to ship" until Monday or Tuesday. That's just a guess though.

Apparently my folio case has just shipped and is scheduled to be delivered on Wednesday. The iPad itself is still in "Processing" and scheduled for Friday.

I wish they would slip up and send it just a little early. In fact, if they're so big on going Green, why are they even being sent separately? :rolleyes:

Mine stills says processing but UPS My Choice says “order processed, ready for UPS”. It’s in Lebanon, TN, and says delivery 10/19. It’ll surely be held until 10/23.

I’ve got an alert from UPS showing a package for delivery tomorrow. Now, I ordered a smart folio as well, but what’s weird is the package weight is 1.4 lbs, and 99.9% of the time FedEx delivers the accessory orders to me, not the actual device itself. The device itself is always UPS.

it also says 2nd Day Air. And I chose the free option for the folio cover, so not sure why it would be sent via an express shipping method. They are also requiring signature for this package, again, completely unusual for an accessory.

Cool. Mine also just switched to "preparing to ship". I didn't expect that to happen for another day or two.

Me either. I ordered my new logitech keyboard from logitech and I doubt it'll be here in time. Gonna try to call them tomorrow and see if they will let me cancel

Yeah, my Magic Keyboard shipped UPS and is arriving tomorrow. iPad Air still not even preparing yet.

Picking mine up in store first thing Saturday 24th (I have a really long work day on Friday and missed the latest pickup slots). In good news, Apple store is very near my house, so it's just a 10 min walk. I can wait till Saturday (I can't, but I'm trying to persuade myself)

Interesting that the shipping date has dropped further into November than the iPhone if ordered now. Production must have been quite limited. Probably one of the reasons why it came out so „late“ too
