    The App Store app show 4-5 weeks for Apple Pencil. Best Buy, Staples, B&H show coming soon or out of stock.

    Has anyone called a store or asked in the store? What did they say? Where was the store?

    I just asked an online chat rep to check Glasgow retails stores and he said they had no stock of either pencils or smart keyboards.

    went to apple store in Metairie, LA. they didn't get any shipment since wed, they were surprised they even get the iPad pro. they don't know when the pencil gonna be there, but they do have keyboard. all they told me was check apple store and see if the pickup in store is available.

    HE BOUGHT 2 EVERYONE GET HIM!

    Seriuosly though, I expected that a lot of people would want two. I have 2 pens for my Surface Pro 1 (not two of the same pen, but it's the same idea). Obviously Apple had no idea how much people wanted these. Or they knew exactly and are messing with us to generate buzz.

    Called both stores in SLC, UT. No Pencils, didn't ask about keyboards.

    Called in to a store and got redirected to support who told me that Pencils are online only for the time being.

    Went into the Holyoke, Marlborough and Natick Massachusetts stores and none had the Pencil or the Keyboard. Unbelievably frustrating.

    Arrowhead Apple Store - Glendale, AZ at store opening this morning. They're telling people to just order it online to get it "faster"... 4-5 weeks.

    Wow, the search for a Pencil is like hunting for one of Willy Wonka's Golden Tickets.

    There first thing when my local store opened. The gal actually thought they had some pencils and keyboards but that wasn't the case. She told me to order online.

    I keep updating the Store App and the website. One thing that's annoying is, you can't check different stores. I tried logging out of my account to see if that would give me any options, but it doesn't seem to matter. Every indication online is simply "4-5 weeks". The order I placed Wednesday morning around 6:50a PT is at "Processing Order, 3-4 weeks". GRRRRRR. My two closest stores would be Third St. Promenade in Santa Monica, or the Century City Apple Store. Anyone else in the LA area reporting Pencil availability please weigh in!

    Go to the store. When you call the number it's the customer service number. When I went the shipment just came in. They have 5 more after I got mine (and one for a friend)

    You can say "manager" at the first prompt to talk to someone in store who will be able to check on physical stock. None in Utah.

    I just went in to the Michigan Ave store despite being told they had none in stock over the phone. Was able to demo it, but the pencils were not in stock there. I'd go to oak brook if it wasn't a ~2 hour round trip process, or if I knew there would be stock when I arrived. Thanks tho.

    I called San Francisco this morning and they told me they aren't getting them in for 3 - 4 weeks. Which is different than what I was told the other day. I was told they rarely know what is coming in, so to check back daily. That seems more accurate of the way Apple does things :D

    I will still call each business day until mine ships.

    Nothing at Third St. Promenade in Santa Monica either - they actually checked the back for stock when I arrived.

    Omaha Village Point - no pencils or keyboards. They have absolutely no idea when they'll get them. They recommend ordering online.

    My two local stores had none but did get some keyboards that were all called for from in store pickups the other day.

    On another note does anyone's pencil orders say "we've received your order" instead of processing? I'm a little concerned because usually it turns to processing by now.
