    I decided to order the 11" iPad late (just did today), and the shipping date is Nov 21st - 27th for the Pencil (separate order). Anyone surmise a guess as to what it'll be like the first week in Apple Stores trying to get a new Pencil?

    The first time around in 2015 it was a mess -- big shortages, and waiting in line every morning outside the Apple Store for a few days in a row before I was able to get a Pencil.

    Hopefully 21st - 27th bumps to a week earlier, but it'll be interesting to see how store stock will be for the first two weeks after launch. I may have to stalk some Apple Stores in the Phoenix valley next week. :)

    What are other people's shipping dates for Pencil 2?

    I’m having the same issue. Wish I could find the pencil on launch day. Unfortunately, don’t live near an Apple store though.

    I bet its like any Apple release. It says on the site that it will be available Nov. 7 so maybe that's when you will get it, give a week or two. It all depends on how many are ordering them the first week.

    I have my SmartFolio available for pickup at the Apple Store near me on launch day (iPad itself is from Costco week of 11/12). Instead of waiting until after work to get it, I might go at opening and ask if I can purchase one while picking up the SmartFolio.

    7 November here, same as the iPad itself. I'm not really expecting that date to move up.
