First iPad 2 Orders Have ‘Prepared for Shipment’ – What About Your Order?

by on April 4th, 2011

When the iPad 2 first launched, you had the choice of either ordering online at 1AM PDT, or braving the lines.

Those first online orders have now moved into the status of ‘Prepared for Shipment’, as seen by the below screenshot thanks to AJ!

Don’t have your iPad 2 yet? All hope isn’t lost! Read about how you can reserve online and pick up in store.

    Yes, I’m aware how supremely nerdy it makes me to comment on my own screeny. :)

    Typing this on my iPad2, no don’t need shipping orders got my iPad2 in a day of reserving it. No need to wait to get my products!

  • http://gusfosarolli.com GusF

    Alas mine hasn’t changed and still shows as “Not Yet Shipped”. Though mine is scheduled to arrive on the 22nd, which is Good Friday and nothing is delivered then :(

    Alas mine still shows as “Not Yet Shipped”. I am hoping that will change soon as my delivery date is scheduled for April 22nd, which is Good Friday and nothing gets delivered then.

  • KP

    Hey no fair! My 3G 64g ordered at 01:13 AM PDT has not changed status. Still ‘not yet shipped’. Soon I hope…..

  • http://twitter.com/ZippoS Zippo

    Glad I got mine on release day. Benefits to living in a smaller city, I guess. Despite the 100+ people that lined up, there were enough iPad 2s for everyone.

  • Zachary

    I gave up, drove down to the Eatons Centre and bougt one. Good luck to all those who have ordered online. I know what your going through! But hey there’s one less iPad that needs to be shipped :P

  • DaveTheBrainDoc

    When did you get yours? Do you have to reserve it online the night before?

  • http://twitter.com/asjen Alice Jen

    I ordered mine at 1:05 PDT on Mar. 25…status still says “Not yet shipped”. I wonder if it’s because I asked for engraving.

  • Nivel

    Hm, my order status page still says “Not yet shipped”, but the delivery date changed from 22 Apr to 19 Apr. Shipping date is still the same (Apr 15).

  • Jack

    Order Date: Mar 25, 2011 at 01:14 AM PDT

    Prepared for Shipment too !!!!!!!!!!

  • Me-rong

    I bought mine on launch day. I hate waiting.

    Typed this on my iPad 2.

  • dkwchan

    Still showing “Not yet shipped” but “Delivers” became Apr 19th (instead of 22nd)…

  • iAddz

    My order time was 1:12 AM and status has not changed!!! :(

  • dkwchan

    An update – now it says “Prepared for Shipment”, although the shipping date remained as Apr 15th. If it is ready to ship, why would it still take another 11 days? Perhaps this will be revised to an earlier date? Try to be hopeful…

  • Anonymous

    Why don’t you pick one up at apple store, and cancel your online order.

  • Mike_1103

    Ordered my 64 gig 3G iPad 2 at 1:11AM PDT on March 25th. Still shows “Not yet shipped”, with a shipping date of April 15th and a delivery date of April 22nd.

  • Anonymous

    everyone reserve and buy at the apple store! i stayed up till 4AM buying the iPad 2 and I got screwed over by apple. I reserved and picked one up at Fairview mall and im typing this from my 32GB 3G iPad 2.
    awesome device this thing is.

  • Zachary

    Yup,
    Ordered it Thursday night at 9 PM sharp! Picked it up Friday

    Cheers

  • Mikevans75

    I really don’t get this. I’ve been trying to reserve online for over a week yet all notices say “unavailable”. I keep reading that folks are reserving and picking up next day. What am I missing?

  • SOB28

    Ordered my IPAD2 when it was first available online. Supposed to come April 22. Got an email today saying it’s coming on April 7th. Nice!

  • Mamarchand

    Order on Mar 25, 2011 at 12:57 AM PDT… And you know what PREPARED FOR SHIPMENT statut…

    But actually i’m waiting for a iPad 32gb because I am writing on my iPad 2 16gb that doesn’t have enough space!!!

  • dkwchan

    Just got my shipping notice! The Apple email said it would be delivered by April 11th, but Fedex said April 7th. The hope the latter is true…

  • iPad fan

    Mine said prepared for shipment yesterday (april 4) and today says shipped with Apple quoting an ETA of April 11 but FedEx saying the 7th. Let us hope that FedEx is right!!

  • Mgarner123

    Mine just shipped out today. Expected delivery 11th of April.

  • md123

    Mine hasn’t changed at all :( I bought at 1:14 am PST, too. I wonder if it’s because it’s a 64 GB WIFI + 3G? Hate waiting!

  • AJ

    After 9pm ? Thats the only time you can reserve. You gotta be fast/lucky.
    I recommend having numerous retail store pages open at once. As square one may not have it but upper Canada might. Etc.

  • dkwchan

    Update – it is in Shenzhen, China and is currently in transit (according to Fedex tracking). Estimated delivery date pushed back to April 8th – hopefully no more delays…

  • Mike_1103

    When did you order, and what type of iPad 2 did you choose? Still waiting for mine to change from “Not yet shipped”… I ordered at 1:11AM PDT (4:11AM Eastern) on March 25th… It’s a 64 GB Black 3G model…

  • arine

    idgi, ordered mine on Mar 25, 2011 at 01:09 AM PDT and it still says “Not yet shipped” with an estimated delivery date of April 22. It’s just a 32gb with wifi, no engraving. Are Apple stores still receiving new shipments of iPad 2s?

  • dkwchan

    I ordered on Mar 25th @ 1:12 PDT. It’s a wifi 32gb model.

  • Anonymous

    I check my order status last night and it said “prepared for shipment”, i checked again this morning and now it say “Not yet shipped”. Has that happened to anyone else?

  • Jack Bauer

    Same here… It may have something to do with the standard or the express shipping option.

  • John the looser Glynn

    I feel like I’m on drugs waiting like this. Still has not shipped ordered at 1:10.

  • iPad fan

    FedEx now says April 8 :( . Oh well, better than the 22nd originally quotes by Apple when I ordered just after 1:00 AM PST.

    I ordered a Black 64GB WiFi only model.

  • alamarco

    Same order and time and my FedEx now says April 8th as well. I really hope it arrives on the 8th because that would be one bad weekend knowing you have to wait the next few days with it in the city. :P

  • Mike_1103

    Well… I gave up and reserved my iPad 2 at the Ste-Catherine Apple Store. Was able to reserve exactly what I wanted, a 64G 3G black iPad at 21:03 tonight. My order was still not yet shipped when I cancelled it a few minutes ago.

  • app_fan

    on it’s way!!! (16g wifi)
    shipping confirmation.

  • Blich

    My iPad in is in the mail now – finally being shipped.

    Originally it was saying that it would start shipping April 15th and be delivered the 22nd. Now it shipped today and is supposed to arrive this Friday at noon via fedex. Woot!!!

    PS – just received my covet from ups today too.

  • Blich

    Edit
    Mine is the black 64 wifi

  • Blich

    Edit
    Mine is the black 64 wifi

  • md123

    Seems like it’s only the wifi versions that are shipping. Has anyone who ordered a 3G iPad gotten a shipping confirmation yet?

  • AJ

    32 gb wifi black.
    (that’s my screenshot above)
    Still “prepared for shipping”
    Sigh.

  • md123

    Waiting sucks. So bizarre that yours hasn’t shipped yet but others have, and it kills my “only wifi is shipping” theory.

  • AJ

    It not so much the waiting. It’s being bypassed by weeks. Feeling kind of penalized for not making the 50+ km drive to am apple store.
    *foot stomp* I want it NOW, mommy.
    Lol.
    Heres hoping my pallet is next off the dock. Being on the shipping/recieving floor for a few years, I can tell you on good authority “prepped for shipping” means “sitting on the loading dock, we’ve done our part and it’s fedex(UPS)’s turn”

  • AJ

    Also hoped that the store going down for a few hrs last night was to do a mass-order update.
    Wishful-freakin’-thinking apparently.

  • Roozbeh

    hey! mine was due to be shipped the same dates .. i have received my cover too .. but still my ipad hasn’t been shipped !

  • joebob2406

    Still “Not Yet Shipped” with a date of April 15th. FML. I ordered it at the second they were available!

  • joebob2406

    For those of you who got FEDEX tracking number, please do not trust the date. because there will be a customs delay in ON. Apple’s shipment email notification is the actual deliver date.

  • AJ

    Ships Friday the 15th, arrives Monday the 18th? Wouldn’t that, technically speaking, be overnight? as Saturday and Sunday there are no tracking numbers given out. So for all intents and purposes- it doesn’t matter where they ACTUALLY are. On paper (assuming it leaves shenzhen Friday midday, saturday @ 0:00est) they will be in China one day, and the next business day be in north America. I smell unmet delivery dates unless these FLY out the doors all this week.

  • ed

    Got my ipad 2 at best buy queensburough this afternoon. was just checking the best buy website and found the 16gb black wifi still available. also, found a 32gb white wifi available at their cambie store. anyone interested???

    Has anyone ordered an iPad with engraving (on Mar. 25) that has been shipped?? Mine still hasn’t changed status (“Not yet shipped”, ordered at 1:05 ET on Mar. 25)…wonder if it’s the engraving that is taking longer than anyone else?

  • Guest

    I went onto apple.ca and it said “unavailable” until 1:30 AM PDT!! so unfair

    It’s prepared for shipment now, I wonder how long until they ship it

  • http://twitter.com/charbeleid Charbel Eid

    ordered 2 ipad 2 on March 25 1:10 PDT, one 32GB white + 3G and another 64GB white + 3G both with engraving … status still “Not yet Shipped’ along with the docks

    but the covers, AV adapter and camera kit are already delivered, shipped march 30th.

    I am afraid the engraving is delaying the shipment of my ipads!

  • Martin D

    IPAD WI-FI 3G 16GB BLACK – Engraved on Mar 25, 2011 at 03:06 AM PDT.

    Still Not yet shipped.

  • md123

    I don’t think it’s the engraving since my non-engraved 64GB WIFI +3G hasn’t even moved at all yet. I think it’s a 3G thing that’s causing the delay.

  • http://twitter.com/charbeleid Charbel Eid

    Well I just got charged a minute ago on my credit card for the 64GB 3G white but on the order status still says not yet shipped

    Ordered March 25 at 1:12AM PDT – I chose engraving, so for those of you who did the same it looks like they might be starting to roll out of the factory!!

    No change in the ‘ships’ date, but the ‘delivers’ date changed for the better by two days.

    Now I just sit and wait and hope that it actually ships quicker than the screen says!!! This has, so far, been a cosmic lesson in patience. I am NOT a good student.

  • Impatient

    Can anyone say how long it took to go from “Prepared for Shipment” to actually shipping?

    Ipad 2 Wifi/3G 32GB Black, not engraved – “Prepared for Shipment” at ~20:00 on 2011/04/06
    Ipad 2 Wifi/3G 64GB Black, not engraved – “Not yet shipped” as of 20:15 on 2011/04/07

    Both ordered at 01:18 PDT (04:18 EST)

    Thanks

  • AC

    Same here, my White 16 Personalized just changed to Prepared for shipment :)

  • Martin D

    All, do not despair! Your iPad will ship soon.

    I ordered iPAD WI-FI 3G 16GB BLACK with two lines of engraving (over 60 characters) on Mar 25, 2011 at 03:06 AM PDT. Just now, the status has changed to Prepared for Shipment with an estimated ship date of April 15th and delivery on April 19th. However, and based on what I have read here so far, it will most probably ship by tomorrow and the delivery date will be updated accordingly. I suspect ship the date will be April 8th with a delivery of April 12th. I don’t think engraving has delayed my order much, if at all.

  • Been_waiting

    My 16gb black ipad changed to prepared for shipment at around 8pm last night and when I checked again right after 12, it already shipped. So it took about 4hours to go from prepared for shipment to actually shipping.

    It arrived at MISSISSAUGA, ON at 9:34am this morning and the status hasn’t changed since. I live in Windsor, ON and I was hopping to get it by Friday but now it look like it won’t be here until Monday.

    I ordered at 4:11 EST.

  • Zippy

    Ordered 64G Black Wifi Mar 25 – 4:11 am (Toronto) and shipped April 5,th – due tomorrow by 10am. Can’t wait to see if it actually arrives.

  • Impatient

    Mine is pushing 26 hours as “Prepared”. So frustrating.

    Good for you, though.

  • chrishch

    Mine changed to Prepared for Shipment, and my order went through March 25th at 0410 EDT… it’s showing it will ship April 15th, and to be delivered 19th. 32GB Black 3G/WiFi. I guess being in Eastern Canada will take longer from China. ::Sigh::

  • Snm1959

    64 GB black 3G iPad prepared for shipping this afternoon. Mine had engraving.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_XODMGNTQ6INNGRLPZYHJFGKFSU Lenny

    I’m in that situation too. I hope it comes before noon on Friday.

  • dkwchan

    The status of mine (white, 32GB wifi only, ordered 1:12 PDT) on Fedex has just changed from In Transit (Shenzhen, China to In Transit (Indianapolis, IN). Still saying delivery for tomorrow (Friday), but seems a little tight…we shall see…

  • Asj Alt

    Finally….the 64GB White 3G that I ordered (with 2 lines of engraving) at 1:05 EDT on Mar. 25 now has the status of “Prepared for Shipment, and Deliver date of Apr. 19 (instead of Apr. 22). Safe journey to me in Toronto!! :)

    Unrelated but there are about 20 in stock at best buy on king George in surrey. Mostly 32, both wifi and 3G.

    The are in the display case.

    Saw them at 11:39 today.

  • md123

    Mine finally updated to “prepared for shipment”! Bought a 64 GB WIFI 3G at 1:13 AM PDT, and says it ships April 15, delivers April 19. Does that mean it won’t be here any earlier than that, or can it still change?

  • Guest

    It will most likely still change to an earlier date.

  • Blich

    Dam!!!!!!

    So I called fedex wondering if it would be delivered today as states on their site.

    They said it was flying out from On tonight and would be delivered on monday. My problem is that i am going on vacation for 3 weeks monday morning and wanted to have my ipad with me. I asked if i could pick it up on sat and they said no because apple requires them to try one delivery 1st.

    Bah!!!

    Sounds like it will be in my province and available for pick up in burnaby but they won’t let me pick it up.

    Me = sad

  • Anonymous

    My 64GB WiFi black iPad 2 that was not engraved was ordered March 25th at 0407 hrs EDT. It was prepared for shipment on Wednesday and sat there for 48 hours. Got mailed out today at 1609 hrs (April 8th) EDT. Will be delivered April 13th.
    Wish I lived near an apple store. I would have reserved and picked it up by now!

  • Asj Alt

    My FedEx tracking indicates:

    Apr 11 9:04am – “In transit” in Mississauga, ON

    …then

    Apr 11 10:25am – “Arrived at FedEx location” in ANCHORAGE, AK

    Hmmmm, hope it’s just a mistake on their tracking end? Otherwise…my iPad 2 has somehow made it from Mississauga (I’d assume Pearson airport) Ontario to Alaska in 1.5 hours. Wow…some super iPad 2 I’ve got.

  • Veshke

    I think yours and mine are in the same shipment!!

    My tracking info stated that it was the paperwork that was in Mississauga (paperwork ready for broker) and my iPad was actually in Anchorage.

    With the way they enter info into their system it can sometimes appear that a shipment magically transports from one place to another, but usually it is that there are multiple facets involved and each one is tracked as it is scanned.

    I’ve come to learn that everything between ‘picked up by FedEx’ and ‘on truck for delivery’ is just a bunch of random statements that may or may not have anything important to do with my shipment ;)

  • Shinyplastic

    Here is my full (delivered) tracking, there was a stage where the paperwork was available in Mississauga way before the package arrived! Good luck!

  • Poop

    In transit meaning “on the way to”
    It was “on the way” to sauga. It stopped in ak. Any other questions?

  • Impatient

    Seriously, has this happened to anyone else:

    32GB 3G black – prepared for shipment LAST WEDNESDAY
    64GB 3G black – prepared for shipment last friday

    Both are still prepared for shipment. Has anyone else had FIVE DAYS of ‘prepared’ without it shipping?

  • NSH

    Those are local times for each. If you change it to “destination” you’ll see the right timing..

  • Guest

    I have a 64GB 3G Black also “prepared for Shipment” since last Friday. Apple still says Ships Apr 15. This date hasn’t changed since ordering on March 25.

  • Raids

    We’re on the same boat. Mine is also more than 5 days ‘prepared’. 32 GB 3G White. Also, i ordered iPad 2 dock, camera connector and green smart cover. Smart cover says ships within 24 hours but after 2 days still ‘prepared’ while the rest which Apple says 3-5 days is already shipped and is now in HK.

  • albert

    received mine today! love it but….
    i noticed that there seems to be what looks like a speck of dust stuck underneath the glass in the screen :|
    anyone else notice something like this?

  • guest

    just got this a minute ago. shipped via Fedex

    Anticipated ship date Apr 12, 2011
    Estimated delivery Apr 14, 2011 by 10:30 AM

  • md123

    Just got shipping notification tonight. Ordered black 64 GB 3G at 1:13 am on March 25. Went to prepared for shipment on Friday and has now shipped.
    FedEx delivery date: April 14 by 6:00 pm. Apple shipment email says delivery won’t be until April 18. Not sure which is more accurate but it’ll at least be here before the original April 22 date!

    Delivered 1:57PM Apr 12th!

    I really hope you guys get yours soon! Mine came a day ahead of schedule, yours might too :D

    Good luck, and enjoy!! :D

  • Guest

    The date on FedEx should be the good one. Mine said the 13th on FedEx and I just got it (12th)

    Apple.ca said the 15th

  • Asj Alt

    Mine seems to have travelled in the same pack as yours (from Shenzhen China to HK to Anchorage, AK). But my FedEx tracking notification is stuck at:

    Apr 11, 2011 4:51PM – In transit – Anchorage, AK

    FedEx said on time for 12pm on the 11th until 12pm came and went, although it was in clearing customs. Now its in clearance delay and they have no idea when the broker (UPS, the worst delivery service in the world apparently also sucks at being a broker) will clear it. Other bulk orders that came in the next day have not only cleared but were delivered yesterday morning. Thinking on just refusing the order since FedEx had me waiting at home for the truck lest they scamper off without even ringing the doorbell, and now who knows when/if it might show up.

  • Guest

    Mine is also in Clearance Delay in Mississauga. I live in Oakville so stuff usually gets to me within hours of landing. My iPad landed yesterday morning (12th) and has now been sitting in Clearance Delay since 0125 this morning (13th). Anyone know how long this might take?

  • Jackbauer

    same has happened to me… it says “Paperwork available for non-FedEx broker” since 735 last night and nothing today.

  • Asj Alt

    My iPad 2 has been stuck in Mississauga (Pearson airport, I assume) in “Clearance in progress” mode since 8:39am this morning. Was supposed to get delivered to me by 10:30am this morning and now the Estimated Delivery Date has disappeared from the FedEx tracking page too… Sigh!!

  • Fegate

    Same here:
    =================================================
    Date/Time Location/Activity
    Apr 13, 2011 1:25 AM MISSISSAUGA, ON/Clearance delay
    Apr 12, 2011 8:27 AM MISSISSAUGA, ON/Clearance in progress
    =================================================
    I called both Apple and Fedex with no much result: they say some papework needs to be done or double checked.

  • Asj Alt

    Just called FedEx and was subsequently transferred to someone in Custom…apparently my iPad 2 is in a shipment with 480 other items and there is a custom delay with the entire shipment. Hopefully they can clear tonight and be delivered to me tomorrow. Intense!!

  • Veshke

    Just picked mine up at FedEx (they tried to deliver today but I was at work). Ordered March 25 at 1:12am – Shipped on April 8. 64g WiFi-3G black (engraved).

    This is my first ever iPad so excuse me while I go become an addict.

    Good luck to everyone still waiting!!

  • ac

    Min is also in clearance delay as of Apr 13, 2011 11:33 AM

  • Asj Alt

    I’m happy to report that my iPad 2 has been delivered to me, after being stuck in custom for 1 day.

    64GB-White-3G with engraving
    Ordered on Mar. 25 4:05am ET
    Shipped on Apr. 8 from China
    Delivered to me on Apr. 14 11:00am EDT

  • http://twitter.com/therealjoxer Jeff Goss

    Arrived and went into ‘clearance in progress’ on the 9th, on time for 11th 12pm. Went to ‘clearance delay’ April 12th. Now back in ‘in transit/paperwork available for non-fedex broker’ (this line first appeared April 7th). I think I’m in Groundhog Day. Looks to me like someone screwed up the paperwork and I’m paying for it, especially pissed about Monday morning when it still claimed on schedule and I hovered over my front windows waiting for the hit and run fedex delivery.

  • jakejs

    I’m having the exact same problem as you. Supposed to be delivered on the 11th, was in clearance since the 9th, never came on the 11th. Then on the 12th it was updated to clearance delay, and finally now its back to in transit in Mississauga. Hopefully it comes by Tomorrow.

  • Raids

    Mine is still in transit in indiannapolis but the sched is still 14th 12 noon on schedule. Chat with Fedex agent before 12 noon and said that it is delayed in customs. Will be delivered tomorrow. I told him why they didn’t update status so that I won’t wait. Never replied back. Hope they will deliver it tomorrow.

  • http://twitter.com/therealjoxer Jeff Goss

    I just talked to apple again. The guy there said that the packages are effectively lost after talking to Fedex – no one seems to know where they are. When I told the Fedex guy that on Tuesday he said “oh, no, its not just your package, its a whole container of them”. So I said I guess you lost a whole container of them then. Looks like I was right. Anyway, the guy forwarded to a ‘specialist team’ that are supposed to get back to me and get me one as soon as possible, but who knows. Good thing I got up at 4 to be first in line! One of my friends just dropped by upper canada mall on launch day around 7 or so and walked out with one after a short line. Crap.

  • jakejs

    Ya well the guy I talked to at fedex said it will come tomorrow, but I’m pretty sure he was just trying to get rid of me. It says it’s not delayed anymore so hopefully they found it and it will be delivered tomorrow.

  • jakejs

    And yea I also got up at 4am to make sure that I got mine first. Glad that people who ordered it days after already have theirs! And this comes after my smartcover was delayed for a weeks with UPS after they decided that they couldnt find my house…after trying 5 times.

  • jakejs

    Funny enough I connected to fedex chat support yesterday to ask about why its not coming, and the very rude guy on the other end assured me it was coming today. I asked if he was certain and he said yes. Today, it of course is not coming, and I happened to connect to this exact same guy again. He said that it is of course not his fault, that its “usually” delivered the next day and that the order is taking longer to process as usual. He said at this point it would “maybe” get delivered on Monday. According to the fedex site, it is no longer under a clearance delay so this is just ridiculous at this point that they cant deliver it.

  • jakejs

    Did it ever come?

  • Radin

    fedex tracking says its already on sort dest facility vancouver but still don’t have delivery date. obviously it passed customs clearance but status is still departs indiannapolis? WTH? Hope it will be delivered by noon today..

  • md123

    Finally got mine today! The estimated delivery date was off by one day, but at least it’s here before Easter. Now to start downloading apps and fighting with my hubby to use the damn thing.
