Apple just sent out an email blast to customers that pre-ordered the new iPad last week that it will indeed arrive on Friday, March 16th for ‘Zone 1′ customers, with tracking to be available on March 15th. This essentially confirms what Apple told us with their Canadian delivery map we first noted.
The email is both in French and English, with the latter version looking this:
Dear Apple Customer,
Thank you for your recent online order at the Apple Store. We appreciate your business.
We want to confirm that your original delivery date of March 16th, 2012 is correct.
Tracking information for this order will be available starting March 15. On or after this date, you can click the Track Shipment button on your original Shipment Notification email, or you can check the delivery status of your order by visiting the Apple Store and clicking Account.
Thanks for your time and for shopping with Apple.
The Apple Online Store
We previously noted some initial Canadian iPad pre-orders will ship out of warehouses in Canada and the U.S. Did you get this email?
Thanks to @themikea, @jonathananderson9, and everybody else that sent this in!
