    Hi All, I've been eagerly watching my iPad's journey from China to my doorstep... Reported to be delivered tomorrow!

    Then it got to Kentucky, and there were no status updates for a whole day. Now it's back to being in China again with no reported delivery date.

    Is this a sign of snags in Apple's delivery system, or did I get my iPad stolen by someone?

    Anybody else experience this yet??

    Umm, unless there are MacRumors members who are also UPS Customer Service Reps, your best bet is to call UPS and ask THEM.

    Just sayin.

    Mine did the EXACT same thing. Mine went to Louisville and then "back" to Hong Kong... and is scheduled for delivery today.

    I've just never seen this before, although I have ordered a lot of apple products over the years. I was curious if other members had the same thing happen to them (now or in the past) as it could mean something systemic going on... I'm not looking for tech support :)

    Looks like system issues with UPS. Hang in there will be delivered soon

    Same problem here. My iPad Pro was stuck in Louisville for 3 days with no delivery date. I contacted UPS and then Apple.

    It arrived in perfect condition yesterday.

    There had been a message about mechanical failure but no explanation of what it was.

    Bryan, our new 'pads must have been travel buddies that fell of the truck, got kidnapped or were assigned a new home. Either way it looks like we'll be waiting!

    I agreed that it is most likely a glitch with UPS. But I would certainly keep a close eye on it until it arrives.

    Heh- while I was typing other comments came in. Sounds like there's hope!

    I'll just sit tight and let you know what happens. Thanks all

    I've seen that too with Fedex but package arrived on time so don't worry too much about it.

    Remember the three pallets if iPad Mini's stolen at a NY airport a couple of years ago?
    It has happened in the past.

    There have been no known iPad thefts at UPS Worldport. My opinion would be that when they scanned a pallet for shipment, it either did not make the flight or they had the wrong serials listed on the wrong pallets. So it would appear that the items were on the way but they really weren't. They do not scan each individual shipping barcode usually on bulk items like this until they are sorted so they do a single scan for X number of devices of whatever.

    Fear not. Mine stayed in China until the day before it was to arrive and it did come on time. They simply do not update very well

    I really hope that it comes. It worries me that it was originally scheduled for Monday then changed to Friday. Now it's saying date unavailable.

    Mine had the same delay, only hung up in Germany, no updates for 3 days. Next update it was back in Hong Kong. Initial delivery date was Nov 19. Even with the craziness, delivery is today, Friday the 20th.

    If you live in Europe it should have gone through Germany otherwise Anchoragw and Lousivlle are the two centers for America. I also called UPS and Apple both are saying that their was an issue with the plane and do not have any other updates.

    Pallet probably just missed the flight - there's no customs scan after entry to the US, so they never made it stateside.

    Could also have been missing customs documents and been sent back - the timings of the scans would allow for this.

    I'm in Houston and my iPad has been stuck in Dallas. When it shipped from Tmobie it had an absurd delivery estimate coming from Louisville and it almost seems like UPS is holding it in Dallas to meet that estimated delivery time. I'm hoping it just missed a scan.

    Wait until after the delivery date before jumping to conclusions :) I saw similar issues with a MBP order a while ago. Everything turned our fine for me :)

    My iPad Mini 4 received no updates till after delivery. Delivery happened per the original estimated date. After I received the iPad, all of the tracking updates were put on the website.

    Mine just popped up in Houston. It still says the estimated delivery is Tuesday, but I'm guessing it will deliver tomorrow.
