    Hey guys this is a forum for people who recently ordered Apple pencils online. Please state where you ordered it and when it will arrive (or if it arrived) and how long it took to ship.
    My status:
    AT&T ordered on Saturday Jan 9, 2016
    Currently "in progress" with no ship date

    Best Buy for both (Pencil and Smart Keyboard)

    Set up a recipe in IF (IFTTT) for the 2 SKUs to notify of online inventory change, send SMS.
    Rec'd within 2 days of ordering (both mid Dec 2015)

    Ordered from Walmart today, should be here Thursday.
    Edit : Canceled my Walmart order and went with Verizon. Better price and shipping same speed.

    Based on advice from this forum, I ordered it from Verizon Wireless yesterday. It was shipped and I should have it by Thursday, based on their estimates. It was only $1 more than buying it through Apple. They were sold out of the keyboard, unfortunately; I cancelled my Pencil order with Apple but left my keyboard cover order in. At this rate, I'll probably end up getting to buy it elsewhere first, although I'm in less of a rush for it than the Pencil.

    Kind of disappointing... even though the Pencil shipping estimates dropped to 3-4 weeks on Apple's website, my order was still saying 4-5 weeks (the same as when I ordered it one week ago).

    I ordered a keyboard today from Verizon, got overnight shipping before 10:30AM. I hate that apple takes weeks to ship, but verizon hooks me up the next day. Grabbed a pencil too will also be here tomorrow.

    Hmm, the website is showing the keyboards as being out of stock... oh well. I actually received my Pencil today, which was a nice surprise. They ended up next-day shipping it instead of going with two-day. I'm not sure if they're doing that standard, or if it's because I'm not on the mainland USA.

    I had been checking my local Apple Store every morning to see if they had gotten a shipment. When I checked yesterday morning it said they were still unavailable. I happened to be on the store app in the afternoon and checked, they had them! Must have gotten an afternoon shipment. Ordered and picked up in 30 minutes

    Ditto on the Verizon order. Created an account just to give ArtFossil a like for the tip. I'm expecting mine on Friday.

    I ordered both my Apple pencil and Apple smart keyboard from BestBuy. It was free shipping. I picked free regular shipping and I received both of them next day (nice job BB). I love the keyboard, not sure if I have a good use for the pencil yet?

    It boggles the mind that Apple still hasn't fixed the supply issues revolving the Pencil and Smart Keyboard. It's been what... 3 months? Since October?

    Heads at Apple need to roll.

    I ordered at MacMall on 12/30/15 because their site said "Usually ships within 3 days". I immediately get an email that says it is "Backordered" and the expected arrival date was January 26th-February 2nd, 2016. Then on 1/9/16 I get an email that said the arrival date had changed and it would now be March 10-17, 2016. Then on 1/12/16 I get yet another message that said my expected arrival date had been changed to January 19-26, 2016. Then this morning (1/15/16 at 1:30am) I get an email that says it has shipped and included a tracking number. The tracking number shows it coming via USPS and will arrive January 19th.

    I would normally cancel and go somewhere else if something like this happened, but the Pencil is one of those things that I probably won't use every day so it wasn't a rush... so I thought I would hang on for the ride and see what happened.

    Verizon has them in stock. I made the plunge back to Mac this last week and ordered a 6s plus, iPP and pencil on Wednesday and they all showed up Friday

    Yep. Not to mention the collateral damage to accessory makers. I know of at least three crowd-funded ventures that are DOA because of Apple's snail-like rollout.
