    I remember mine came from China.

    But a recent order was shipped from California.

    Also, one other iPad air in the house was assembled in Brazil.

    I don't understand the point of this question.

    Who cares?

    Whether Apple ships from a warehouse in Shenzhen, China or air freights a pallet of iPads to a warehouse in Ontario, CA is completely irrelevant to the end user. The devices came from the same source.

    Even the country of manufacturing origin might even be useless. After all, Apple has their QA standards, it's not like they're going to let the Brazilian manufacturing lines slack off in terms of quality control.

    When supplies has caught up with demand, Apple will start storing iPads in their warehouses in the US. So expect them to be shipped from within the US for those purchasing online in the US.

    Not true as not all iOS devices are made in China. And of course Apple does get them in local warehouses to ship from.

    Please show me a photo, I don't believe iPads air's are assembled in Brazil.

    I believe (I may be wrong) that only iPhone 4 and 4S and iPad 2 were assembled in Brazil and that they were only sold in Brazil, not elsewhere.

    I do not believe the OP that they have an iPad air that was assembled in Brazil.

    Take a photo of the back of the iPad where it says 'Designed by Apple in California. Assembled in Brazil' and I will believe you.

    As far as I knew, all iPads are made in China.
