    Interesting.
    My iPad Pro 12.9 256 Wifi SG, ordered on 11-Jun, is still being "processed" :p, with an ETA of 27-29 June.

    Just checked what the current shipping times are, just to get a sense if I can expect it to arrive earlier.
    Turns out that while the 12.9 iPads, if ordered today, will only arrive in July, the 10.5 ones are in stock and would arrive 2 days from now if I ordered before 3pm today.

    What's going on?
    Did Apple underestimate the demand for 12.9, and overestimated it for 10.5?

    Yep, I think they screwed it royally this time, I'm still waiting for 12.9 here in Poland also...
    Shops are full of 10.5 inches though... sadly...

    Still waiting for my 12.9 Space Grey to come in as well and it seems like it is taking forever. Not only did Apple underestimate how popular the 12.9 would be this time around, the problem is also compounded by the fact that there is only one color with a black bezel. There are lots of white bezel 12.9s sitting on the shelves, but no Space Greys.

    Why Apple only offers one of their four colors with a black bezel is beyond me...

    Yeah, it seems the 12.9 is either in high[er] demand or apple didn't make enough of them. I'm surprised to see the inventory levels of the 10.5 as I'd expect that one to be the more popular form factor - it is with me :)
