Quick question, I just bought my iPad from Apple Store Singapore and have what appears to be an iPad from Hong Kong based on what is written on the back of the box and the languages of the manual I got in the box.

It shouldn't be much of a concern right?

If it's from an authentic Apple Store then no worries. Relax.

Nothing to be concerned with. If you purchased directly from Apple, it's legitimate. You could always contact Apple and ask why as well.

Never! But you'd have the receipt sent to you via email right? Keep that marked and you'll be fine.

Thanks, the emails clearly state that it is from Apple Store Singapore so I think it should be fine

Speaking about which, I checked my emails and noticed that my previous iPad Pro (before I returned it) and Apple TV 4 (which I also returned) are indeed sourced from Hong Kong based on their part numbers

Thanks! I will take one for the team and ask Apple about this lol
