    Staples is taking pre orders for delivery on the 20th if anyone wants to order one incase they can't find one locally before then.

    Well I feel a little crazy now. So far I've preordered the Apple Pencil from 3 places - the official Apple Store, BH Photo Video and now Staples....

    Seems like a case of an ignorant Staples employee not knowing there is a massive shortage of Apple Pencil. I doubt the delivery date is Nov. 18/19/20/x if Apple themselves are backordered 4-5 weeks.

    Does not mean that they did not have stock already allocated to other retailers.

    Right, but getting 2 units per store is the same as having stock.

    Agreed and this is likely, although the pessimist inside of me is telling me not to get too excited over that prospect LOL

    And as of today Staples has taken the Apple Pencil off the search results, you can still view it if you saved the link, but pre-orders are no longer being accepted. Looks like their initial shipment has already been allocated to pre-orders. The smart keyboard is still available for pre-order although it has a ship time of somewhere up to 6 days after processing. Not sure if this is normal or not. (I submitted pre-orders for both a couple of days ago and show a ship date of 11/18 with an arrival of 11/19 expected.)

    I actually ordered from Staples yesterday. My guessing is that somebody canceled his/her order so that I had a chance.

    It is very interesting that when I was checking my apple pencil status on safari on my cell phone, it says it is in transit. But when I checked it with either a laptop or the mobile app, it became processing again.

    I checked my order from my phone on safari and it said processing. Hoping it ships as expected. :)

    I guess the pencils are being shipped to Staples right now. And Staples will distribute them to the preordered customers.

    I just got one from the local Apple Store. Try to talk to the online specialist first before visiting the store so you know if they have stock.

    Just got an email that my keyboard and pencil are delayed, but I can't say I'm surprised.

    Keyboard had an expected delivery date of tomorrow but it's been delayed until Monday 11/30.

    Pencil had an expected delivery date of 11/24 but it's delayed until 12/03.

    I ordered Saturday afternoon so hopefully others who ordered before me weren't delayed. I'm guessing they got less shipment from Apple than expected.
