Ordered one about 3 weeks ago and was given a date of 19-26 November and here we are 20th and still no progress

Never ordered a product where it didn’t come on first day.

Interesting since I just ordered my iPad with folio case a couple days ago from Verizon and they’re coming tomorrow. Try Verizon

They have them at B&H.
I went to my local Bestbuy and Apple Store and they are sold out of them. For what its worth, the Apple Store told me that out of the two new iPads the 12.9 model was the more popular model and that’s the reason for the shortage of keyboards. I’m not necessarily sure how true that is, but I thought I’d share.

Rmcnelly is correct. B&H had them in stock. I ordered one and they overnighted it to me with free shipping.

Both my local Apple store and BB are sold out of them as well. I ordered it from bestbuy.com and they'll have it here by Monday.

Went to the Apple Store in a mall about an hour away, and they only had them for the 11”. Did some other things, went to a Costco, and decided to check the app again around 4PM. It said the one in the mall had them available for pickup today. Did an in-store pickup and it was immediately ready. I guess they are getting regular shipments or afternoon shipments. Lucked out and got mine. Keep checking the in-store pickup inventory.

My Apple store had them back in stock today as well. I cancelled my BB order and bought one to pick up.
