    I just called Apple because I will be closed and out of town for the Holidays and my 2 mini LTE showed to be set for delivery on the 23rd, which wouldn't work. I asked to bump it to next day air shipping. She did and it is now set to deliver on the 19th (to Texas). Plus she waved the next day air shipping charges. So when Tim Cook said 2 weeks after the WiFi version he was correct, they look to be movng them out on the 16th.

    Not sure who you talked to, but twice now Apple has refused to change my standard shipping method to expedited. The CSR said that the units will ship as soon as possible.

    I ordered a 2nd mini a few moments ago. The 20th of November came up. So, hopefully the Thanksgiving Holiday will not delay the joy!

    Now that would hack me off -- I ordered one last Friday & my delivery date says the 23rd.

    I think they r getting some heat for the 23rd delivery, knowing people will be away for the holidays. Amazed me how easy it was for her to offer the next day air delivery for free.

    Same Here. I ordered at 4:00 am EDT, and my most recent update says delivery on the 23rd!! 1 hour after they opened up for pre-order, I shouldn't get pushed out that far!

    I also ordered a new iPad 4th Gen, and it's delivery is set for Monday the 26th!:eek:

    I completed my order at 2:05 CST (5 minutes after ordering went live) so I shouldn't be getting pushed at all :). And I also ordered the iPad 4 & it says November 26th.

    Ah, my statuses for these two have changed to "Available to ship - Mid November". Things that make you go hmmm.

    Mine has also changed from "Delivers November 23rd" to "Available to ship Mid November." I hope we get them early.

    I was told this first in a chat session with an Apple tech when I asked about the 23rd be a problem for me:

    "That is an estimate and would be the latest that it would arrive. UPS and FedEx will deliver M-Sat, so it will be on or before the 23rd"

    Then thats when I asked about upgrading my shipping and he gave me a phone# that connected straight to a person no recorded Apple mess, she is the one that got me next day air for free and told me they will start shipping on the 16th.

    I wish I would have kept it, I punched it in my office phone while looking at it on the chat screen.

    After calling Apple, and returning them a scathing survey form, my Delivers Nov 23 date has mysteriously disappeared. Probably to shut us up.

    I was wondering if I didn't get the head chic in charge of something and express my concern about people being out of pocket on the 23rd and she had some changes made. All this date stuff just started happening when I posted this.

    My delivery date has changed as of this afternoon. This morning I checked and it said delivers 11/23. Just checked now on both the Apple Store app and the website and both say "Available to ship: Mid November"

    While I hope this means they are getting bumped up, it could also go the other way as well.

    I ordered right when the store went live at 3 am eastern time and had the order confirmation in my inbox 1 minute later at 3:01 am eastern.

    Mine just switched too. The 19th at 11 am to this, but I was told I would have it on the 19th. Still wonder why the change, too much calling about dates?

    Bad news, according to the one person I'm speaking to through the chat, it seems Hurricane Sandy is delaying everything. I'll post a pic of the chat in a sec...

    Really dumb ??? but where / how do you initiate a chat with Apple? I can't seem to find it on their site.

    Thanks.

    Go to the store, pic an item, up on the top right a "chat now" blue button will appear next to the 1-800 number.

    Thanks will try that!

    I did call Apple to try to get it changed to Next-Day, but was denied. But all was not lost. I was able to get a free smart cover on one order and credit for another smart cover on another order after I asked them about price-matching Target's $40 discount sale this week.
