Apple.ca: Reserve & Pick Up iPad 2 At Your Local Apple Store

by on March 28th, 2011

As Apple Canada wraps up its iPad 2 launch weekend, the company has sold out of iPad 2 devices in almost every Apple Store Canada-wide.

To assist with inventory levels, and avoid long lines, Apple Canada has now enabled users to reserve an iPad 2 online for pick-up at their local Apple Store.

Customers may reserve an iPad after 9PM local time for pickup the next day at their favourite Apple Retail Store. Reservations are based on availability and shipments arrive regularly.

The process is simple:

1.) Visit your local Apple Store website. For example: www.apple.ca/richmondcentre

2.) Under the iPad 2 banner, choose “Reserve Now”.

3.) Choose your iPad 2 devices, sign in with your Apple ID, and confirm your reservation. Limit two per reservation.

The reservations are only available if store inventory is available. Once you make the reservation, you pay in-store for your items.

Currently, all stores show “Unavailable” due to lack of iPad 2 stock:

    Well this could have saved me a long wait on Friday … although I am happy to have one in hand!

  • Zachary

    This is stupid, they should start shipping the online orders!

  • Anonymous

    Can’t wait to get my hands on one!! OMG….

  • http://twitter.com/snowy2004 Stéphane Lachance

    Well, crap, that was easy. I guess I’ll just cancel my online order. I have one just waiting for me tomorrow…

  • http://www.iphoneincanada.ca/ Ex

    I see your edited your comment. Well, as per your original comment:

    “I think you’re completely wrong… An Apple retail store employee told me that online reservations start at 9pm EST, before that it’ll tell you the product is “unavailable”… Because they do the inventory…”

    It is now past 9PM EDT. Can you order? I didn’t think so.

  • Rahnay

    It works! I just reserved a 16GB Wi-Fi at Rideau Apple Store :)

  • Anonymous

    Actually yes!! I just reserved my iPad 2 16GB 3G Black and they had all of the models at Quebec Fairview Pointe-Claire… :)

    Edit: Not anymore, I guess… Sold out real fast WTF!?!

  • http://www.iphoneincanada.ca/ Ex

    They had *some* models at 9PM EDT, not all.

  • faddi045

    I was slow :( – no more 32gb black Wifi ones!

  • http://twitter.com/1mfahad Fahad

    I totally agree – at the moment its more than a month till my online order gets delivered! thats brutal

  • Davechandler

    I just reserved one for pickup at Eaton Center in Toronto. However, I just noticed that nowhere does it say, “iPad 2″ it only says 64 GB Wifi & 3G Black. What do you guys think? It did say black…

  • Davechandler

    Correction, it says, “iPad 64 GB, Wifi & 3G, Black”.

  • Dennis

    But a few minutes ago, I actually was lucky enough to reserve one. They sent me a confirmation email and everything. I am going to the apple store tomorrow to purchase it. I hope I don’t get played because when I check back, it says unavailable. Maybe I was just the lucky one. The picture included was taken from the actual email by the way.

  • Anonymous

    They actually had all of the models at Fairview Pointe-Claire!

  • Anonymous

    Me too…

  • Davechandler

    See below… Yours doesn’t say “iPad 2″ either. Just “iPad”. Is that bad?

  • Dennis

    Me too. But As you can read, I am going to the apple store tmr to see if my reservation was real. I will purchase it then if it is. Good luck to you!

  • Dennis

    That is true. My reservation says that too! Guess we will see tmr…

  • Dennis

    Except I got the 16 gb version in black as well

  • Dennis

    Don’t cancel it yet, see if you actually get it tomorrow first at the Apple store. I am waiting till I come back to cancel it.

  • Dennis

    Well that is a concern right now for me. But I guess now apple uses ipad meaning ipad 2 and ipad (first generation) to differentiate between them. I am not 100% sure right now… hope for the best?

  • Davechandler

    Well, maybe it’s okay. As I said, they wouldn’t have to specify “black” if it was an iPad 1.

  • Dennis

    That is very true. Since ipad 1 only came in one colour. You may be right.

  • Mikepdoyle

    What are the chances a store still has stock left by 6pm?!

    I think it will be very difficult to reserve what you want. Best chances are being at the store at 10am when it opens and they luckily have new stock.

  • Mikepdoyle

    Sorry I meant 9pm. Didnt realize it was 6pm Pacific.

  • Psxp

    all gone now. There were some 16GB available in White

    the resellers got them to list on kijiji

  • Dennis

    Don’t they set aside the stock for the customers using their reservation service online? The apple staff even said that they didn’t want line ups, that’s why they set the reservation service up on their website.

  • http://twitter.com/1mfahad Fahad

    Thats a good thought… Good luck with your purchase. I believe in about a weeks time the retail stores should get in more stock so lets hope for the best. At the same time I am praying my online order gets delivered sooner. There are so many people who are selling ipads on kijiji.ca for a premium price… its debatable whether they are doing the right thing when actual to-be “users” dont have one at the moment.

  • Megan

    The whole point of the reservation system is to eliminate the line ups. The iPad 2 stock will be set aside for those using the reservation system.

  • Dennis

    Those people are crazy! So greedy and selfish, they buy up all the inventory on launch day and sell it on kijiji, so ignorant…

  • Dennis

    Since I was lucky enough to reserve mine, can anyone tell me how reservations work? Do they look at their list and set aside the amount of ipads that customers like me reserved?

  • http://twitter.com/1mfahad Fahad

    there’s someone whose actually “selling” his reservation spot for tomorrow on kijiji! Thats unbelievable!

  • Dennis

    seriously? WOW!!!!! unbelievable!

  • Guest

    Anyone able to reserve in Edmonton Area? I’m confused, does it go live 9pm local time everywhere?

  • The Equalizer

    wow.. talk about a real wanker. Time to expose this greedy pig

  • RL

    did anyone get to reserve after 9pm in BC? I got an email from oakridge saying my reservation is confirmed and pickup tomorrow, but I cant sign in and view it….weird and I think it may be a glitch?

  • http://twitter.com/kiwisllb Shaun Barker

    I got the same reservation message, also for Oakridge. Likewise, I can’t log into see the reservation. So I’ll keep my fingers crossed (and keep my online order going for now….)

  • Coolin

    I got the same reservation message as well. I have also received an email confirmation that it will be ready to pick up tomorrow at Oakridge. Haven’t tried logging on to confirm.

    Pacific Centre only showed availability of white 16gb wifi, so I quickly refreshed at Oakridge, I noticed that Oakridge had availability on all models/all colours when they popped, but were all gone within a minute or so.

  • http://twitter.com/kiwisllb Shaun Barker

    Likewise – all were gone within a minute. I reserved mine, rang a friend to tell him they were available. He choose one, went back to choose a different model and all were gone, including the one he’d already chosen. Brutal!

  • RL

    Same thing with me. I couldn’t believe it actually. Also, if you read the confirmation email, they keep mentioning the iPhone? Maybe its just a standard email format for everything? I hope so. If it was a mistake, I’ll demand a free ipad from them at the store tomorrow hahaha

  • FH

    I am amaze the reserve was only available for like 5mins, and then all gone. Glad I get one just in time. My confirmation said it is and iPad though. I kinda like this reserve system, better just keep going to the store to check if there is any stock or keep calling if there is anything coming in.

  • fatal

    Hrmm.. As soon as it became available I hit reserve and for day I just hit submit/save… which was for Monday March 28th… I got the confirmation email to pick it up on Monday the 28th.. the store is already closed of course.. I couldn’t change it to 29th… did I mess that up?

  • Dennis

    Well yea you kind of did cause you are suppose to change it to tuesday, which is today, thats what I did…

  • Asa71

    I am sure you will be fine. The Apple Stores don’t sell still sell the old one and I ordered both a white and a black one. They don’t have iPad 1′s in white and it would make sense to sell old black ones and new white ones. Off to the Eatons Centre I go tomorrow! Pretty good deal. I get it five days after launch with no waiting in line.

  • joycough

    did anyone try this in Calgary? I tried going on at 9pm MST and couldn’t find anything to select it just kept putting me back to City Choices… maybe it’s 9pm EST?

  • Mtl

    Online ordering worked perfectly in Montreal!

    Online ordering worked perfectly in Montreal!

  • Sundoctor

    Was able to score an iPad 2 64 GB 3G Black from Rideau store in Ottawa. Used the reservation system last night, but they didn’t have many as all models became available at 9pm and were gone at 9:15. Just bring up the model page and keep refreshing starting at 8:55, the reserve buttons will flash by so be quick!

  • Dennis

    So last night u reserved it and today you went and bought it?

  • Dennis

    For those of you who was lucky enough to reserve it yesterday on Monday march 28, did u guys go to the apple store to pick up your reservation? And did you actually get it?

  • Brian

    Yup. I went to the store, they looked up my name, and I bought it. Couldn`t be easier. Have no fear!

  • Coolin

    The reservation system worked great. I reserved last night, walked into the Apple store at Oakridge at lunch time. Walked out in minutes with a new iPad. The apple store employee told me that all of the iPads are reservation only. No walk ins yet it would appear, but I don’t know if that’s on a store by store basis or what.

  • http://twitter.com/1mfahad Fahad

    i will try to reserve one tonight! lets hope for the best :)

  • Anonymous

    So 9 pm pacific time so 12 am Toronto time?

  • Dennis

    I hope for the best to you, I am about to go to purchase mine right now. Make sure you call your store to confirm like i did, saves you the gas :)

  • Dennis

    THANK YOU SO MUCH! I feel much more confident now! Going to purchase it soon :)

  • ryu

    I thought it was 6 pm PDT and 9 pm EDT…so is 6 pm in Vancouver and 9 pm in Toronto I think…

  • Anonymous

    I’ll check both then

  • http://twitter.com/1mfahad Fahad

    the ipads were made available at 9pm in toronto yesterday. So i guess its 9pm local time for the city you are located. good luck!

  • http://twitter.com/1mfahad Fahad

    awesome – do let us know when you get the ipad. also i doubt whether more ipads will become “available” tonight… i highly doubt whether shipments come in everyday…. i’m keeping my fingers crossed :)

  • esb

    reserved one last night 9pm pacific and picked up my 16gig black ipad today at the apple store in oakridge!

  • Gerry18

    Or a mark up on ebay.

  • Kiwi

    They track all stock. You will be assigned one of the available units they have in stock.

    Enjoy.

    I am deciding which model to get!

  • Dennis

    Just came back from the apple store! Reserved yesterday at 9 pm and got it today at apple store fairview. Even the apple employees tell you to do the reservations. GOT FOR IT! Best of luck to everyone!

  • Rahnay

    Reconfirming it worked. Walked in and walked out with my reserved black 16GB Wi-Fi!

  • TSki

    Woohoo! reserved a 64GB Wifi at Fairview Mall! Waiting for a confirmation email.

  • Psxp

    Theres some white ones in Ontario and a couple black ones.. gone in 8 mins

  • Wowza

    Montreal St- Catherine still has 16 Gb…

  • Anonymous

    Can anyone order any in Vancouver??

  • TSki

  • http://twitter.com/TeamSober #TeamSober

  • Teatime78

    Nope – they already have your name on their magical devices :) they are also opening stores earlier than usual – we got to the fairview store at 9:30am and the store was already quite full.

  • http://twitter.com/TeamSober #TeamSober

    anyone want 32gb white 3g at Square One, I reserved it but changed my mind ill wait for 64gb..

  • ARRRR Stateside

  • Anonymous

  • Anonymous

    9:01 finally got it to work, typing as fast as I can on my iPhone reserved the 16 gb white, putting my apple I’d, finished. Guess what it said product not avaliable. And this was within a less than a minute of me writing my id. Fml

  • ARRRR Stateside

    they probably will ask for id…not sure if it is possible for you to just remove the order and I can jump in to take it over. I’d have to be precise though :-p

  • Asiganon

    Was lucky to find and reserve a 16gb wifi black at yorkdale mall;) checked at 9pm sharp and a minute after a few started showing up in many locations across Ontario and by the timeI finished reserving mine they were all gone!
    off to cancel my online order! Not waiting till April 22.

  • Asiganon

    That sucks man, once you add it to cart it should be yours. I used my pc and got my confirmation email;) good luck tomorrow!

  • Anonymous

    I used Firefox + Check4Change to reload every minute between 8:50 and 9:01 or 9:02 , at which point the Apple store in Fairview Pointe Claire had most models available for reservation. Reserved for pickup tomorrow. Woot.

  • Anonymous

    Ill try tommorow, hopefully I can get it.

  • Dennis

    Thanks! Congrats to you for being the lucky one! And no you just go to the store and they will check for your name and bring out the iPad for you.

  • Dennis

    16 gb wifi black model

  • Seiya0917

    I am in Toronto. What time is it here when you reserved? How fast did it become out of stock? Which store did you order with?

  • Lambamba

    Nothing in BC at 9 pm came online. Refreshed from 8:50 to 9:06 at several stores and everytime said unavailable…

  • Trevor Bradley

    F5F5F5.. nothing here in BC at 9pm…

  • Anonymous

    I know!!! I think apple store in BC are out of stock!!!

  • Nogami

    The BC inventory just went online at 9:00PST. Everything was sold out by 9:04. Got a 32GB black for myself.

  • Fatal

    I just grabbed a 32GB 3G black.. 32/64 both 3G black came up as available at about 9:03

  • Trevor Bradley

    Argh, you lucky duck. I was refreshing each site every 10 seconds.. nothing came up as available.. I wanted that 32GB Black! :)

  • fatal

    Oh, I should add that was in BC. Oakridge Centre Vancouver

  • Nogami

    I think they changed the link – if you were auto-refreshing a single page it didn’t work. I had to go back to the “select store” page and re-select my choice for it to properly display the inventory.

  • Allan_Vancouver

    Checked for a white 64GB 3G iPad at the Apple store, Pacific Centre, Vancouver at 9:01 AND GOT IT!! Thanks for this blog. At 9:02 pm there were no more available of any models.

  • Cdubb80

    Reserved a 64 gb wifi 3G model at oakridge But kinda more interested in a 32 gb model. Anyone want to trade? There were other options available at first but they all went quick.

  • Trevor Bradley

    Argh! Another person who managed to get a 32GB Black, the model I was going for…

    What was your refresh strategy? I was hitting F5, then resending the form information.. Nothing came up, even though I refreshed about once every 10 seconds at each store from 8:55 to 9:10…

  • Trevor Bradley

    Well, I’ll try to remember that for tomorrow… :)

  • Lambamba

    I did that as well. Also nothing…

  • Kelvin

    I was able to reserve a 16GB black Wifi at about 9:01 – Pacific Centre Store!

  • Trevor Bradley

    Wait until you have the device in hand first! If you get one that bleeds through you can return it and hope your other one doesn’t have the problem.

  • Trevor Bradley

    Every 10 seconds wasn’t enough for me.. better luck next time.

  • Trevor Bradley

    “Unable to connect to server”.. I guess that’s officially it for the night.

  • Asakura58

    ya man, i missed my chance…by time I went to hit reserve for a white 16gb at richi center IT WAS GONE! DAM I WAS SLOW!! Oh well there is always tomorrow :(

  • Asiganon

    Good idea I’ll wait to make sure everything looks good before I cancel the online order.

  • fatal

    I had my iphone/laptop both refreshing.. but the one that got it, was when i opened up a new browser window and started from the apple.ca page after 9pm.

    I think maybe refreshing just doesn’t work.. give that a try tomorrow.

  • IPad

    I just reserved a 32gb wi-fi + 3G for pickup tomorrow (march 30) at Oakridge. I’ve been checking the site all evening and right at 9pm stock was suddenly available. I checked the three stores in BC and they all had stock show up for reservation at 9pm. It was all gone by 9:15.

  • Psxp

    9pm as stated in the comments above and on the apple canada website. They all went in 5mins.

  • Psxp

    you must start from the beginning page each time. Refreshing does not work. I lost out by doing the same thing. I cant try until next week as I am out of town. Good luck to you guys.
    Dont let those greedy guts who resell them for markups get any!

  • http://twitter.com/iAnwar Anwar Madkhali

    I have 32GB Black that I am going to return it. Do you want buy it from me?

  • Psxp

    dang it – I saw that and missed it ;)

  • Alexsteward

    Thanks for this blog. Finally got my IPAD :)

  • Cdubb80

    anyone with a 32 gb model (wifi or 3G) reservation want to trade for a 64 gb WIFI + 3G reservation at Oakridge? The capacity is probably just overkill for me …

  • http://www.iphoneincanada.ca Gary

    Yay! ;)

  • Trevor Bradley

    Nah, I think I’ll try again tomorrow. I want to make sure I’m eligable for the 30 day return policy. Thanks anyways.

    I’m still feeling a bit bummed that I waited up until 1AM the day they came out to order online, and then when I decided to change my order in the morning (to remove the laser engraving), it meant the delivery would take another week (they had to cancel the order to change it)

  • http://profiles.google.com/mewantipad2 Michael Ma

    Hey, that’s exactly the ipad I want… is there a way I would be able to get that off of you? If you’d like to help me out, contact me at mewantipad2@gmail.com to discuss, thanks in advance!

  • Macguy23

    Reserved monday night at 9pm, thought that even though i got a conformation email it was rather fast. I checked the site right after reserving a 64GB 3G black model and there was absolutely nothing in stock. When i picked up the ipad on Tuesday night at oakridge, most of the staff was saying it was like i won the lottery as the top model is scarce and they all wanted it. Well at least i did not have to wait forever in a lineup.

    Check every night right a 9pm if your still looking. Oakridge, Pacific Center then Richmond in that order as a store person mentioned to me Oakridge might get stock before downtown for instore pickup.

    Ugh. I’m afraid everyone seems to have been able to reserve their iPads yesterday. I don’t know if there will be any available for reservation this evening!

  • Soren

    Does anyone know if shipments comes in everyday? I didn’t find out about reserveing at 9 Pm at night so i didn’t get a chance last night. I ordered an white 16 Gb 3G online but won’t get here till the 22th. I’m trying to get one before then.

    If anyone in metro vancouver has a white 16 GB 3G that they don’t want and not looking to make a profit, let me know please.

  • Psxp

    dang. I wanted a 64 but got a 32g on order

  • Harttshane

    Just got my iPad 2 last night at futureshop. If you check the day you can view store inventory and two stores in nova scotia had several on hand. Just go to the iPad on e futures op site and checknstore inventory and bam u might be in luck.

  • Lambamba

    I also checked at the Pacific Centre store this morning and they will not sell iPads to members of the public without a reservation. While I can understand allocating a large portion of your stock to online resos… it seems odd that they will not sell you an iPad as a walk in, given they are demo’ing them in store.

    Kind of a frusterating experience all around as I never saw any stock online last night from 8:50 – 9:20 pm PST on multiple computers and stores (not just refreshing the page) and even if you’re the first person at the store, they won’t sell you one.

  • Ipadhunter

    Picked mine up via reservation this morning. The Apple stores are pretty much only selling them via reservations right now. I was told today that if stock is on hand that isn’t reserved the night before, they will sell that to walk in traffic, but given how fast the reservations are all spoken for that isn’t going to be likely for awhile. Also, if one is reserved and not picked up the next day, it will be for sale on the floor the next day. They are trying to eliminate people lining up and waiting for shipments to arrive and be processed. The website is a little misleading that they are not putting fresh stock out on the sales floor when it arrives, only the stock not reserved the previous night.

  • Megan

    Hoping to have better luck with the reservation system tonight. I was able to see the model I wanted (black 32gb wi-fi only) at Sherway AND Square One, however when I clicked on “select” it would not process through to the sign in page :(

    Ah well, I’ll try again tonight!

  • Anonymous

    So if you successfully reserve an iPad at your local Apple Store, how long will they hold it for you? For instance, if I order tonight, will they hold it for me until Saturday, or is it “next day only”? Thanks in advance!

  • Guest

    Some Future Shops in Ottawa got small supplies around noon today. Silver City (Blair/Cyrville rds.) got about 5 of each.

  • esb

    you select a pick up day and i believe if you don’t pick it up on the selected day, it is no longer on hold for you

  • Eddie

    They have a lot of stock at futureshop Vaughan (3200 Highway 7) 1pm. I got the last 16gb wifi only white. It is first come first serve

  • Mikepdoyle

    Lucky. I forgot and when I remembered at 930 last night it was too late. I hear Square One got 70 iPads and they all sold via “Reserve”.

  • Mikepdoyle

    So lucky! I’m going to try every night at 9pm.

    wow, they * actually * have realtime stock???

    Westworld Computing in Vancouver just got a shipment of ipads unexpectedly. I got a 16 wifi Black for myself.

    So whoever wants one should go soon

    instead of giving to to random people on the internet, they should use those iPads and fulfill ONLINE ORDERS!
    its ridiculous.

    On a whim, I put my name down on a wait-list at my local London Drugs shortly after 5 pm Friday. I was pleasantly shocked yesterday morning to get a phone call saying they’d received a new shipment. Thirty minutes later I had a white 64G Wi-Fi iPad2 in my hands–no line-up, no wait. Anyone within reasonable distance of a London Drugs might want to check this out!

  • Darius

    Picked an black iPad 64gb wifi today at best buy at Scarborough town at 2pm and they a few left.

    CORRECTION: Very Red Faced. After jumping for joy and seeing delivery date as this Friday. I read the shipping notice and it was the Smart Cover only.. Sorry about that folks…… Very Embarrased right now.

  • Khall

    I bought the wi-fi 32 gb. It looks like they are shipping the accessories which seem to be readily available.

  • http://twitter.com/TeamSober #TeamSober

    looks like the apple retails stores are getting stock everyday I wonder why they arent shipping online orders yet

  • http://twitter.com/TeamSober #TeamSober

    one hour to go! 64gb white will be mine!

  • Soren

    Actually finding an Ipad 2 in vancouver atm isn’t hard, I tracked down at least 6-8 ipad 2 today. But none in the model i want, which is 16 gb white 3G.

    Here’s to hoping to i can reserve one tonight.

  • Brett

    Yes, how dare Apple reward those who put an effort to getting a highly touted product rather then meet the demand of lazy people who ordered online and expect immediate satisfaction for their “effort”!

    Apple should just stop shipping to all stores until every online order is satisfied. Because that makes sense for their business. It’s not like they already have your money from your online order and you’ll wait no matter what…oh wait…

    ——-
    Sent from my iPad 2…which I lined up for and got quite easily.

  • Gunfus

    For people who reserve online but also order one online, how will you return it without paying for the delivery?

  • http://twitter.com/TeamSober #TeamSober

    im pretty sure you can return it to an apple store

    or return the open one to apple store? apple makes enough money as it is.

    any luck?

    I reserved a 32GB Wi-Fi only @ Square One :) I saw 16 GB Wi-Fi only in Black & White, but didn’t notice anything else.

  • Jack

    Dammit! Everything available EXCEPT the Black 64GB Wi-Fi that I wanted. :-( Almost tempting to get the 3G model, but…I’ll wait… ;-)

  • Jk_an88

    I managed to reserve 64GB with 3G white right at 9:00PM @ Quebec St.Catherine. It’s to be picked up tomorrow anytime. I’ll cancel my online order before I pay at the store. All the available product got reserved under 4 minutes so I recommend refreshing the site none-stop at 9:00PM to reserve one. I’m so happy :) won’t have to wait until April 22nd!

  • http://www.iJailbreak.com Mike McKinnon

    I stumbled upon a new shipment at a Best Buy, and knobbed a white 32GB iPad 2. Total fluke that they got the shipment about 20 minutes before I got there. :)

  • Xprtech

    It’s Wednesday night 11:50 pm EST and Ottawa Rideau Centre still has a few 64gb wifi 3G models available as well as 16 gb units. I was expecting them to be snagged up around 9pm but almost midnight and there are still some available, so if you live in Ottawa go to their web-site quick and place your order, I just did :-)

  • made it

    Got a 64gb wifi black (first choice!) at Richmond Centre.

  • Asakura58

    just reserved my 16gb white wifi version @richi center..Time to cancel online order once I pick up tomorrow..How do i cancel that one? do I call in to apple? any fees to cancel?

  • Ryu

    omg just reserved one 3G + wifi 16 gb black at 9:05 pm waiting for me to pick up at Richmond Center. Thanks to my bro with his lightning F5 skill!!!

  • Matt

    For those who don’t have an apple store near them, calling us lazy? You may have lined up or reserved yours but some people like me live out of town and don’t have the ability to drive for hours and line up. So yes, agreed with the first comment before you came bitchin, apple should focus on online orders as much as they are with their store product.

  • made it

    just call customer service. no fee

  • RYU

    i have no idea too…Please give advice on how to cancel?? and Do i need to bring anything to pick up my iPad beside the government ID??

  • Soren

    Ok so i reserve two ipads but since the online system would only allow me to reserve one per account, i use two different accounts but with the same name.

    Anyone know if this will work?

    BTW i ordered a 64 gb wifi only black, that i might not end up buying. So if anyone is looking for one, i’ll sell at cost.

    Your Apple product(s) have been reserved. Come to the store on your designated day and a friendly Specialist will be there to assist you. We’ll have your items ready and can help you check out.
    A government-issued ID matching the name on your reservation is required for iPhone purchases. Due to the high number of reservations, please arrive at the pick-up time below.

    where are you located and which one are you looking for?

  • Osisthrill

    I just reserved mine last night going today to collect 16gb white wifi, at 8:59 was waiting there then one store fully sold out, then tried next store and when I click to confirm at all times keep telling me “Time out” and taking me back to the beginning, I was lucky enough the one I wanted was the last available! :)

  • Gabrielle

    Got an email from Apple this morning, saying that part of my order has shipped ! I was so excited….until I realised that the shipment was only for the smart cover, not the IPad2!!! What can I do with only the cover?? It is very stupid and disapointing to ship this item before the IPad2.

  • LOOSEWHEEL

    Well now if you just had an iPad with 3G…………………..

    You and me, both,…smart cover first…and then I nearly died when another shipment notification came into my inbox!!!…for the HDMI connector GRRRRRRRRR!!! Talk about an emotional rollercoaster. I’m not going to blame Apple, though. I’ve decided I’m going to take on more hobbies and not base my life / happiness on the latest gadget purchases. Ah…who am I kididng! ;-)

    well, you can use it as a fridge magnet on Monday, LOL. I got the same email too

  • Alkie4ever

    What we are saying is, Apple should ship the smart cover with or after we receive the iPad 2. We are not complaining about not getting an immediate shippment. What should we do with a smart cover without a iPad2, that’s what we are discussing.

  • JC

    I don’t disagree with you entirely, but that being said, those of us with big girl jobs, who then have to pick up a kid from daycare and get her fed and down to sleep, and then with our rare free time in the evenings try to work out or play sports, or maybe shop for something we need (like food…Apple products are not needed), or stay home so that our spouse can work out or play sports have better things to do than stand in line forever. Plus, being six months pregnant, the notion of standing in line forever sounds extra tortuous and would involve buying some Depends. Apple doesn’t have to fulfill online orders instantly, but sending out a few probably wouldn’t kill them. Or make us wait two weeks, not four. That’s not asking too much. And from what I understand, you are not billed until they ship, so actually they don’t have any money.

    All that being said…mine is a gift from my husband and is currently set to arrive right after my birthday, so as long as we get it just before they say we’ll get it, I’m covered.

  • luc

    How come the white one is more popular?

  • http://twitter.com/osloskyline Ryan Anstey

    Reservation worked for me in BC. Stock gets posted at 9pm, you have about 5 minutes to get the popular models and about 8-10 minutes to get the expensive 3G models. When refreshing the reservations page, note that you actually have to select your store and hit submit in order to refresh. Hitting the refresh button doesn’t work.

    Also note that by default it will offer you the current day as the day to pickup, which on half of the week the store is already closed. I reserved for that day by accident, but I came in and they asked for some extra proof and managed to get one for me.

  • Soren

    As we all find the models we want, remember to check for light bleeding on the ipad
    For me i picked one up at richmond center today, and the light bleeding is horrible, thinking about exchanging it in the coming days.

    HEY WARPDRIVE, WHERE DID U HERE THE TELUS SHARE PLAN OPTION. JUST WONDERING? THX THEY TOLD ME U COULDNT SHARE YOUR DATA WITH UR PHONE TO UR IPAD!

  • Anonymous

    Was talking to Retentions because I was pissed they didn’t have the $15 share option anymore. The gal I talked to said they just got the initial info on the new share options, that they will make customers very happy and to expect an announcement soon. What it will be and how soon are anyone’s guess. I fired up the ipad2 on the 20$/500mb plan in the meantime. I have the 6gb plan for iPhone, but find it a pain to tether all the time. At least she waived the $35 activation fee for me. Let’s keep our fingers crossed for something FAIR. Unlike Rogers ridiculous share fees. Then again, at least Rogers has some sort of plan at the moment… Come on TELUS, here’s your chance to not shit the bed.

    Tonight I successfully reserved a 16GB WiFi Black iPad, but then realized that I have no way of getting down to the Pacific Centre Apple Store until Saturday! Think they’ll hold it for me until Saturday, or have I lost it because I can’t show up on my “pickup date”?

    I guess the only sure way to find out would be to make a phone call to the store when they open tomorrow. If they’ve got a firm “next day only” policy, then I’ll have to try again Friday night.

  • http://www.iphoneincanada.ca/ Ex

    They won’t hold it.

  • Cdubb80

    i was able to pick one 32 GB wifi up Thursday pm .. no line ups at all .. just call ahead to see what stock

    also picked up a 32 GB 3G from apple pacific centre where there was a lineup just for reservations

  • iPad fan

    I was told at Eaton’s Centre that the reservations come on at 9 AM local time. Judging by the posts below, it appears as though stock is refreshed on the site sometime in the afternoon. Can you let me know your experience?

  • http://twitter.com/TeamSober #TeamSober

    Couldn’t wait for the online order so I went and tried my luck with futureshop. Luckily they got an order yesterday. I didn’t get a white one like I wanted but I am happy with black :)

  • Jack

    It would’ve been nice if you’d specified the location, to help others here. However, a quick online check shows that the Futureshop Barrie and Brantford locations have some in stock as of 12:14pm local time.

  • Jack

    Best Buy, Richmond Hill and Woodbridge locations are also showing some iPad 2′s in stock as of 12:18pm local time.

  • Mikepdoyle

    Picking up my 64gb black wifi tonight, all thanks to the ability to reserve!
    Also don’t have to pay a dime. My fiance got me a $800 apple gift card as an engagement gift. :)

    If you ordered online, you should reserve and iPad and cancel you online order.

  • Mikepdoyle

    It’s next day only. Just reserve one the following night. You can’t reserve two but your first one will probably be cancelled before you attempt the 2nd reserve.

  • Mikepdoyle

    Probably because it’s the new thing. I went with black. Looks a little more sophisticated. Paired with a black leather smart cover, it’ll look sweet!

    I am SO DOING THAT TODAY.. Finally my wife approved of it.. since we haven’t been charged for the iPad yet.

    They started slightly before 9PM. At 09:01 there were still a few models left, which disappeared by the time I added to my cart and was asked to log in.

    I reserve 2 ipads online on launch night and decided to try my luck with the online reservation in the mean time, I reserved a 64 gig wifi black yesterday and picked it up today. Whoot Whoot no more waiting, just enjoying. Thanks to everyone who posted and this website for hosting.

  • TB

    What am I doing wrong then? I’m refreshing every 5-10 seconds on three computers. I started around 8:57pm. I’m even making sure that I go back and click next instead of hitting F5. I haven’t seen a single product listed at any of the three Vancouver stores, ever. Its getting really frustrating.

    Worse still, my iPad 2 cover came in the mail today. I don’t want to wait until the 22nd to get my iPad!

    Make that the 29th as I changed my order the morning after. FML.

    I snagged a 32GB Black WiFi tonight via Apple Store reservation — but when I went to my cart I was told to the effect of “one reservation per Apple ID only” and I was turned down. Dang, and all because of the Friday reservation that I couldn’t fulfill! By the time I’d set up an alternate Apple ID using a different email address, the local Apple Stores’ reservations were all taken. I’ll try again on Saturday night! This is fun!

    Stupid Apple Sainte Catherine. I reserved a 64gb 3g black thursday night. I work long days at the hospital so arrived to pick up friday night. They said they miscounted the stock and didn’t have any in stock left. Told me I had to reserve again. Of course that night every model was available to reserve except that one. I curse you Apple.

    AHA! I know what I was doing wrong now!

    Somehow I was clicking on a “Reserve now” link that when I selected my store took me directly to the iPad2 listings… the link that comes up if you google for “oakridge apple store”. If you don’t select a store, you get an error, and then on subsequent tries, you get a page that lists various products. And tonight for the first time I saw product… only 16GB and 64GB models unfortunately. But now I know what to do and can try again tomorrow!!!

    TL;DR: If you choose your store and it goes directly to unavailable iPad listings, you’ll never reserve an iPad. It needs to come up with “Choose your product”, and then you’ll see ipads.

    OK, here’s my observation.

    If you’re on a page that says “Select a store to pick up your iPad.”, I’ve never, ever seen a reservation.

    If you can get to a page that says “Choose a store” product shows up. I think the trick is to click “select” so fast on the “select a store to pick up your ipad” page that you get an error that says “Try again”.

    I have my reservation. WOOOOOOT!

  • TB

    Your Apple product(s) have been reserved. Come to the store on your designated day and a friendly Specialist will be there to assist you. We’ll have your items ready and can help you check out.

  • TB

    Check my above post. I was having the same problem. Something is weird with the reservation site. You need to be on the general “reservation” site rather than the “iPad reservation site”.. The only way I know how to get there is to click too quickly when asked for the store, it takes me to another page asking me to try again and then I get a different page that takes me to an intermediary page of various products, not just iPads… That’s the page that’s let me see sales.

    use this link
    http://www.apple.com/ca/retail/ (there is a link that says Reserve Now)
    OR
    http://reserve.apple.com/WebObjects/ProductReservation.woa/wa/reserveProduct?lang=en&country=CA&prelaunch=MC769C_A

    From here all you do is click Province/Store

    It will take you directly to ipad availabilty without you using another page through the standard reserve link which makes you choose between products before you go to the ipad only page.

    i tried with the ipad reservation site and it worked fine.. but that was today! got a shiny new 32 white wifi.

  • HighApple

    The worst thing happened to me, i checked at 9pm and the fairview store had most of them in stock and when i reserved 1, i followed the steps and on the last step when it asks to confirm… i kept getting a message saying

    #pick up at this locations isnt available#

    Thats not cool, i kept trying over and over again and it didint work, and now when i checked at 12;40, it said all of them were unavaailble, now i kind of wish i didint return my dented ipad 2 that i waited 7 hours for….

    did this happen to anyone elseÉ

  • Joe Beef

    I’ve had it with the B.S. reserve nonsense! My time is more valuable than sitting in front of the computer and trying to “win” an iPad like concert tickets from a radio station! I don’t mind waiting the three weeks for it to ship from China. But does anyone know if you get dinged with the outrageous UPS brokerage fees? The online store says shipping and customs fees are included. But what about brokerage? I ordered a $100 item from the U.S a few weeks ago and got a $51 brokerage fee from UPS. On an $850 iPad that will be another $70. Anyone know for sure?

  • md123

    No brokerage fees if you go through the apple Canada store. Not sure if there are any if you go through the US version of their site. I bought a macbook pro from the Canadian apple store 3 years ago and it came via FedEX direct from China and it was just as if I had ordered something from futureshop online.

    Thank You! I got the same answer from Apple’s customer service people. It took me three tries in the last couple of days to get someone who knew what I was talking about! I ordered it over the phone with the very helpful lady and I should have mine on or about May 2nd! It’s going to be a long three weeks…

    Thanks again!

    Did anyone have luck online yesterday, no matter what store stock I looked at, everything was ‘unavailable’

    I just tried last night at 9pm sharp and didn’t see anything at any store in Quebec. What gives? Has anyone else tried and succeeded last night?

    I tried at 9PM (Vancouver) and nothing was available. Then at 9:04 a few items showed up, but not the one I wanted. Today I tried at 8:58 and I got lucky. I noticed that white ones were available while black ones were sold out. A short while ago the white ones were more popular.

    I tried last night at 9PM sharp too. Nothing. Then I tried 30 minutes later since i had nothing to do. Almost all ipads were available. Reserved a black 16 wifi for today. 5 hours and i’ll have mine :)

    Got my 32 GB white wifi ipad today at the Eaton centre. the stars lined up for me! I been trying to reserve it online for the past 4 days. no luck. I called the store this morning out of whim and the guy told me they just received a limited amount. My boss was nice enough to let me go pick it up. 21st in line. I was originally going to get black 16 gb wifi, but after talking to the people in line and the sales reps 16 gb was too small. They only had white which I dont mind :) So apparently, the online reservation does not work anymore and the stores are no longer bothering with it.
