Canadian iPad Shipping Dates Delayed Till June 7th for New Orders

by on May 12th, 2010

Canadians have already started pre-ordering their iPads as of May 10th. The iPad’s official Canadian and limited International launch date is May 28th. Normally, iPads pre-ordered should arrive on the launch date. The Apple website has updated iPad shipping dates. It now shows June 7th as the updated delivery date for newly ordered iPads. Looks like the first batch has been sold out.

This delay is an indication that Apple could be having a difficult time keeping up with iPad demand. One million iPads have already been sold in just 28th days. Since the US was the first to get the iPad, everyone else in the world is patiently waiting for the iPad to hit their shores.

What do you think about this shipping delay? For new orders,  it might be worth it to just cancel your order and go pick up one in a store on launch day (if you have an Apple Store nearby)?

Thanks to everybody who sent this in!

    the delay is only for orders placed as of today, orders placed previously will ship for delivery on the 28th like is says, they must have sold through all of those already.

    I think Dean is right. My order status still says “Ships: Delivers by May 28th”
    Which means there will be lineups at stores.

    Yup, got that part. Article updated.

    Ya, second on that one – my order status still stays May 28th!!! :)

    I think he was referring to people who have placed orders that say the shipping date is “By June 7th.” People with iPads arriving on the 28th have no reason to go to an Apple Store on the 28th and wait in line (unless you really like taking your chances…).

    It's important to note that the May 28th day was the deliver-by date on pre-orders placed earlier this week and the June 7th day is just a ship-by date. People who order their iPads now may not get them by mid-to-late June, whereas people who placed orders this week have been told their iPad will arrive *on* the 28th (if not a day or two earlier, since it says “by May 28th” rather than “on April 3″ as it did for U.S. pre-orders).

    Glad I preordered right away, I can barely wait until May 28th!

  • Cal

    So- anyone know if all stock in Apple stores will be only for those who have pre-ordered? If I head down to my local Apple store on May 28th, will there at least be some non-reserved units for purchase?

    So on June 7th is the next apple announcement where they are probably releasing 4.0. If this is the same day that the iPads are shipping, could this be apples way of stopping the jailbreak on those devices? will they ship with 4.0?

    Mine delivers on May 28th. My Speck CandyShell and Power Support Anti-Glare arrives on the 25th and my DodoCase in 4 weeks. It's like Christmas in July!
