Hello all! I ordered a Space gray 256GB 11" iPad Pro over the weekend and I got an estimated delivery of Aug 5 - Aug 12. About a week before I ordered it, it showed a delivery within a few days. What has happened in a week or two? Most online places are also out of stock and showing an Aug delivery. Do you think I could get it sooner? I ordered an Apple Pencil 2nd gen as well and it said delivery end of July and yet this morning I got a tracking number and it's coming tomorrow. Thoughts on what could be happening?

I'm seeing in many New England Apple Stores the 512 and 1TB are available in-store, but still show that Aug 5-12 delivery date. I think it's a combo of supply chain and greater Covid precautions in the warehouses. The refurb store hasn't had the 2018 IPP 11 or 12.9 for a couple of weeks either.

There are iPad Pro 11 and 12.9s right now in the US refurb store. Refurbs are shipped overnight and 2-day shipping if you don't want to wait for a 2020.

I just ordered a 12.9" and have an estimated delivery of Aug 6 - Aug 13. I ordered a smart folio with it, and that arrives tomorrow.

It's gonna be a long, long month... sure hope it's worth it!o_O
Yep, it's going to be a long month. I really hope it gets moved up.

I plan on ordering one and just checking stores in various states for local pick up as well. If one is available for local pick up, just get a friend in that state to do you the favor. I noticed the iPad I want isn't available for pick up, but if I switch to the LTE version, it is.. Not sure if I want to spend the extra $150 for something I won't be using.

I ordered the silver 11” 256gb iPP and pencil 2 on July 5 and got the same delivery estimate...Aug 5-12. The pencil was delivered on Jul 7. IPP delivery date hasn’t changed. Still showing “processing” order.
