On Friday May 28, 2010 Apple launched the iPad in Canada. By Sunday of that weekend, every Apple Store and retailer across Canada that were selling iPads were sold out.
While there are thousands of new iPad owners in Canada, there are many people still trying to find one! So what do you do?
Answer: Get on the Apple iPad Priority List
The Apple iPad Priority list is a system available at Apple Retail Stores across Canada. Being on the list guarantees you your iPad of choice and to get on the list, you need to visit an Apple Retail Store. This is how it works:
1.) Visit an Apple Retail Store
2.) Find an Apple Employee and request to be on the iPad Priority List
3.) The employee will bring you to a Mac where you choose which Canadian Apple Store to hold your iPad at and which iPad model you want on hold.
4.) Enter your AppleID (or create a new one) and the reservation is made.
When the Apple Store you selected receives the iPad, you are immediately sent an email notification. Essentially, as soon as the inventory teams at Apple Retail Stores scan the iPad into inventory, your email is sent.
The iPad will be held for 24 hours at your selected Apple Retail Store. If you fail to arrive within 24 hours, the reservation is closed and your iPad is no longer held. If you are near an Apple Retail Store, the priority list is definitely the fastest way to get an iPad.
At this time, the priority list system is only accessible from within an Apple Retail Store. However, it is very likely the company plans to make the system available anywhere, so that users can book reservations from home.
Are you still waiting to get your iPad? Are you going to get on the Priority List?
