iPads Have Started Shipping in Canada–Has Yours?

by on May 25th, 2010

iPad orders have started to ship in Canada. The big day for the iPad launch in Canada is on May 28th. If you haven’t pre-ordered your iPad you better be ready to get in line on Saturday. This is going to be an exciting week for people outside the USA that have been eagerly awaiting the arrival of the iPad (except those who already have one!).

When did you place your pre-order? Has it shipped?

    just letting you know, ipad is coming on Friday may 28th on all bestbuys, its limited quantity. its going to be just 10. so first one first served. there wont be any advertisement

  • SS

    Mine says 'Prepared for Shipment' ordered @ 1205hrs on May 10th.
    Ironically, SIM card being shipped separately by UPS, was shipped on May 20th & now expected delivery date is May 31st AFTER arrival of ipad and 11 days to ship from Ontario. Are they shipping by mule? UPS will NOT do a 'Hold for Pickup' until there has been at least one delivery attempt, so be prepared to be sitting for days waiting for all of your ipad and accessory deliveries from UPS!! I'm still excited and better than waiting in a lineup @ the Apple store!

  • stonee

    wow, I envy you. I have learn more info about ipad form internert(all over the world), but i can't get one. I can't help playing games, reading, and watching movies with it.

  • typhus333

    thing still says “Prepared for Shipment”. i really hope that changes soon.

    Fingers crossed that when the iPad officially launches in Canada that the Canadian iBooks store gets more books and the Canadian iTunes store gets iWork apps like Pages!

    Shipment exception SHENZHEN CN
    Ship date: May 24, 2010
    Estimated delivery: May 28, 2010 by 6:00 PM

    The shipment notification mentions May 25 as shipment date and May 31 as delivery date.

    Left FedEx origin facility: May 25, 2010 3:25 PM

    18,885 km to go….

  • Steve

    Mine is still in Prepared for shipping mode…. grrrrr…. i know it will change today… but when :)

    I really hope it gets home on friday during the day…. If not, i would be disappointed by Apple since the iPad will be available at 8am at all Apple store on friday… If the iPad is not on time for all the pre-orders, i feel Apple should give us something (like a iTunes gift certificate) since they were saying deliver on friday…

    We will see then :)
    Fingers crossed

  • yvrgal

    Mine still says Prepared for Shipment and I pre-ordered it on the 11th. I hope the status changes soon to SHIPPED!

  • 11thIndian

    Well… at least the iBook app went live today.

  • Limbo71

    Shipped this morning, Fed Ex says estimated delivery thurs by noon!

    we'll see

  • yvrgal

    Yessss!!!!! I just received a shipment notification from Apple. Delivery is by noon on the 28th! :-) Looking forward to it.

  • Grant

    Shipped!!

    Estimated delivery, by Noon on Friday the 28th.

    Having it delivered to my office. I predict I'll get very little work done Friday afternoon.

  • http://www.ramp-music.net/ Irfon-Kim Ahmad

    I placed my pre-order at about 8:30am on the 10th (the first morning pre-orders became available). I did get a ship notice, but it's of the “information received by fedex” sort, not the “unit actually in transit” sort. Also, while Apple said that they'd guarantee delivery by the 28th when I pre-ordered, their ship notice silently moves that back to the 31st, by which time I could have walked into a store and bought one. So much for promises.

    On the up side, FedEx thinks it'll get here on the 27th. (On the it's-all-moot side, I'm leaving for a conference in the U.S. tomorrow, so it's going to be sitting on my desk until I'm back on the 1st, anyway. I'd kind of hoped that I'd be surprised by getting it just in time for the conference, but I can't blame Apple for that since I'm leaving two days before the launch date.)

  • Steve

    Just got my email too :) Finally….
    It's funny how…. Apple wrote delivry by May 31….. And FedEx is saying Friday 28th by Noon….
    Hope FedEx is right….

    Now it's May 25, 2010 8:41 PM Picked up SHENZHEN CN… Package received after FedEx cutoff

  • stan solo

    I ordered two at 4:23 am may 10'th (first day of pre order) and still has not shipped. I live in Winnipeg.

  • Kevin

    Got mine about that time too…Apple says May 31st (boo!), FedEx Says by 10:30 AM May 28th (yay!)

  • Hyrules

    yesss got my shipping confirmation !!! Fedex says delivered by May 28th at 6 pm.

  • Muntz

    Mine (64gb WiFi) is still showing as Prepared for Shipment and I ordered at 2:22am on May 10th.

  • Muntz

    Too funny. It has just shipped. FEDEX is saying delivery on May 28th by 6pm.

  • Nat

    I ordered mine (16 GB WiFi) on May 10th at 12:53 am – I just got a shipment notice through Fedex – estimated arrival date/time is May 28th by 12:00 PM – I live in Ottawa

  • Ash A

    Does anyone know if Future Shop will have any? I have a gift card I've been saving to use on this.

    Thanks.

  • Phil

    Ordered 16 GB wi-fi on 10th May, at 3:39 AM (PDT). It was shipped on the 25th. I live in Montreal.

  • Dwight

    Futureshop will eventually get it, but not May 28th 2010.

  • RIck

    I ordered mine on the 10th and it shipped from Shenzhen, CN this morning

  • Jeffery

    SAME! Life is good my friend.

  • http://ken.walker.name Ken Walker

    Ordered it May 10, 2010 at 04:19 AM PDT, got shipment notification for delivery Friday

  • yqg

    Ordered approx 10 am on May 10th. Mine was picked up by Fedex about 2 hours ago in Shenzheng China – est delivery noon on the 28th. Yeah!!!

  • Josh

    Mine too!!!! Yippeee!! I am all excited. I have my Apps ready (Though I am waiting for iWork to show up in the App store to download). I have my TV, movies, pictures and music all organized. All I need is the device!

  • Dexter

    Mine as shipped on the 24 :)

  • MisterSpiffy

    7:39 AM, I received a notification that my iPad is now in transit from Shenzhen, China with delivery by May 28 at 6:00 PM at Calgary. I cannot begin to surmise how many iPads left the warehouse straight on to FedEx trucks earlier today Chinese time. My detail information also says mine missed the cutoff.

    Interestingly, my remaining accessories (the iPad case and power adapter) still have yet to ship. I wonder where those are coming from?

  • djepsilon

    My SIM was shipped separately too except mine is supposed to come on the 27th. Weird…

  • djepsilon

    My iPad is now shipped, but the carrying case has not. Has the case shipped for anyone else who ordered it?

  • LoWd0Wn

    sold my wifi ipad over the weekend and anxiously awaiting my 3G. Got shipping notice as well early this morning.
    I feel ipadless now!! Hope I get it by Friday.

  • http://stevend.ca Steven Davis

    Still no non-public domain books in the iBookstore, and still no iWork in the App Store. That's fine for us nut cases that bought the iPad early in the States, but when “normal” people start receiving their iPads, Apple is going to have a bunch of angry customers on their hands.

  • Jerry

    I think I'm going to take the day off work on Friday and wait for my iPad. :D

  • http://chris24.ca/ Chris Thomson

    Mine shipped this morning as well. I ordered mine on May 9th at 11:34 PM PDT. FedEx says it should arrive on Friday by noon, even though it missed the last flight out of Shenzhen for the day.

    SIM card's still nowhere to be found… Apple says it has shipped but UPS doesn't have possession of it yet.

  • Dan00bhave

    ordered mine at 7:30am Atlantic time on the first day for pre-orders. revived my email yesterday that mine has been shipped.

  • Sire Torre

    Mine too is 'en route'
    Ordered may 10th around 8 am EAST
    My detail information also says mine missed the cutoff.
    Estimated delivery may 28th 6PM
    BUT, on Apple's site, it say's delivery by may 31th… Bouhouhou

  • PierreC

    Ordered iPad wifi 64gb on may 10th at 5:00 am
    Got shipment notification from Apple: Shipment date May 25th, Delivers by May 31st

    Can hardly wait.

  • Daniel

    My ipad wifi 32gb has now been shipped! They are using fedex??? I thought apple was all UPS anyways…the apple email and website say delivery by may 31st but fedex says may 28th at 6pm cant wait!

  • Jack

    Ordered May 10 approx 12:30 am and I just got a email notice this morning.

  • Tornadogirl

    My order shows that it was shipped on the 26th (so I guess that means today) but I don't have an expected ETA. I called Fedex and he told me that he thought that it would be out for delivery either Thursday or Friday. On my Apple shipment confirmation it tells me that it won't be here 'til the 31st. I really hope they're wrong…otherwise I will be miffed! I'm going with the notion that they subscribe to the “underpromise, overdeliver” theory of customer service. ;)

  • Tornadogirl

    Yes, I converted the local time to MST and my order was shipped out this morning at 9:06. Looks like it takes at least 12 hours to fly from China to (I'm guessing) Vancouver (but not that I'm too eager or anything)!

  • Winston

    My iPad says shipped…. My sim card says it's in limbo…. And my case says it's still sitting in a warehouse somewhere…. Looks like for sure the three will arrive separately… I may have to camp out on the doorstep!

    Apple just called and my iPad won't be delivered by FedX until JUNE 1!
    I am miffed…thats 4 days later than promised

    And to think how early I got up to preorder…I should have saved my sleep to go and line up at the Apple store on Friday…

  • Pierre Parent

    It has shipped, but I'm kinda freaked out as it just left China today, Tuesday, to be delivered in Ottawa on Friday?. Touch wood…..

  • http://www.kitestring.ca Chris

    Mine has been shipped!!!! It's in China though. BOO!

  • http://www.iphoneincanada.ca Gary

    You all must be so stoked!!

  • http://chris24.ca/ Chris Thomson

    Apparently people have been told that the accessories would start shipping on the 28th for Canadians. I'm guessing they're probably sending a bunch of them to a Canadian warehouse then shipping them out to everyone individually from there. I ordered a pair of headphones from Apple and they came from a warehouse near Toronto — they arrived the next day after they were marked as shipped. Hopefully the iPad accessories will do something similar.

  • Tornadogirl

    Mine is STILL in China! WTH??? So far- not very impressed with Apple. If I had known that pre-ordering wasn't going to get me my order on time, I would have taken the 28th off from work and gone to an Apple store to buy it there…

  • rob

    my SIM card arrived burlington , ontario

  • Jayvob

    Shut up. It says may 28. Nobody wants to hear you whine. So honestly. Quiet.

  • Sundoctor

    My SIM just arrived – Ottawa. iPad is still in China though. Ordered on 10th at 11AM or so.

  • Tornadogirl

    Say what you will…you're not going to rain on my parade! :)

  • Tornadogirl

    Just talked to the very helpful people at Fedex and the one person I talked to was quite convinced that, regardless of the order status, the pre-orders (unless specifically noted) should be here by Friday. Crossing my fingers…

  • Sundoctor

    Thanks. It's going to be a long 2 days of waiting! I'm a bit more excited than I thought I would be!

  • Tornadogirl

    I KNOW! I'm not usually a techno-junkie who jumps on the bandwagon every time something new comes out but this thing has me totally excited! (And yes, admittedly, a little impatient)! ;)

    Me as well. :( I was out of the province on the 10th and only ordered a few days later when I got back. Mine says 7th as well. I'm hoping I get it at least by the 11th as I'm going out of province again on the 12th and really want to have it to take with me for the flight.

    If I thought there was any point, I'd try the Apple Store on Friday morning before work, but I have no desire to queue up for hours.

  • http://chris24.ca/ Chris Thomson

    A ton of them are still in China. In fact, there's a FedEx flight that's nearing its arrival in Anchorage from Shenzhen, surely with a bunch of iPads on it.

  • Dwight

    Chris, you are the best!! Thanks for the tip :)

  • http://dndcode.tk Maullar

    Hey Chris, out of curiosity, are you aware of what route it takes after Anchorage?

  • Mo

    I ordered mine at around 12:50am on the 10th. The last Fedex status is Memphis at 3:30 in the morning on the 26th. I'll have it tomorrow. Fedex is super quick. I talked to the Fedex guy today (I work in the shipping dept) and he said they were told to expect 170 plus ipads in Regina for delivery on Friday. I told him to bring it to work so I can have it sooner. Bwaaaahaaaa Fedex is usually a day or two sooner then estiamted. I'm pumped.

  • JustinT

    This is what mine says too…and I ordered mine early on the 10th. However, some peoples have made it to Alaska, then Memphis already. I am scared it will not be here for Friday :(

  • JustinT

    I would assume it would go to Memphis like others have. I hope its here on Friday !

  • Dwight

    My location skipped from Shenzhen to Mississauga, Ontario “Paperwork available for non-fedEx broker”

    I assume this is customs

    It just arrived in Mississauga and is awaiting brokerage clearance!

    522 km to go.

  • JustinT

    Does this mean the iPad is actually in Mississauga, or is this just somewhere the customs clearance is approved? Sorry – new to Fedex and Apple orders. So excited for it to get here. Hoping it flies from Mississauga to Vancouver tonight!

    I bet they are little iPad buddies :)

    with this info that would mean that it is still in China. I really hope it gets here on time other wise i will be so sad :(
    I even took Friday of from work to be here when it comes.

    My ETA still says May 28, 2010 by 12:00 PM so there is still hope.

    Also my sim card seem to be stuck. UPS update is from the 21e and i noticed.

    Lets hope it all gets here in time and we all can play with our new gadgets over the weekend.

  • Dwight

    You know, I'm not positive, but judging that it says Anchorage, AK to Mississauga in <20 minutes. I doubt it's in Mississauga, sounds like the shipping hub is just ready to accept it / it's in transit.

  • Ganch

    Now mines says “Prepared for Shipment”..

    I hate to wait even though I know I'm gonna have it in my hands eventually I guess I'm just as excited as everybody else here.

    My iPad is in Alaska enroute to Vancouver! :-) It will be delivered at work so I have to be there. The only thing is that it's payables and I can't play with my new toy just yet. I have to wait until I get home.

  • http://enkerli.wordpress.com Enkerli

    Same here. Doesn't seem so strange.

  • Hiro

    I phoned fedex today, and I doubt its going straight to Vancouver from Anchorage. It may have to go somewhere else in the states I heard. But I'm hoping it comes straight to Vancouver !

    The Fedex Tracking site says mine is in Mississauga as of 6:48am Thursday.
    I wonder if they're allowed to deliver it early? :-)

  • Hyrules

    well mine still lok like it's in china from the tracking. I just hope it's because it is not up to date.

  • Muntz

    I'm wondering the same thing as mine is in the same shipment as yours. I took tomorrow off work to be home for delivery. Hopefully they don't try to deliver it today.

  • CW

    I had a ship date of June 7, and I got the “shipped notice” this morning. Pre-ordered on the 12th

  • Pierre

    I live in Gatineau and mine transited through Anchorage as well. Not surprising as Anchorage is a major Fedex hub for the Asian route.

  • hugo

    any news on your side?

  • Sundoctor

    Same with mine. FedEx still says it will be delivered on Fri by 12 tho.

  • Delta_T

    May 27, 2010 7:38 AM: At FedEx destination facility OTTAWA, ON

    would they be delivering today?

  • Dan00bhave

    i think the ipads are all still sitting in the u.s. so they don't arrive before the launch. they will likely arrive in Mississauga today then get distributed throughout the country Friday and into Monday. the tracking notes from Mississauga just means they had received the paperwork for the incoming shipment.

  • dreddly

    Mine is in mississauga as well (6:48 am), but I don't know if Fedex is like UPS and updates when it is on the truck. I am still expecting shipment tomorrow.

  • Ryan

    Sometimes packages are not scanned properly for the tracking information. I order a lot of parts from the US and had packages not be scanned into the tracking system along the way so it looks like it's not moving, but it does always arrive on time.

    My iPad shows that it is still in Anchorage, AK – but has probably left the facility. At least FedEx Customer service says the package is enroute and should be there by 6pm on FRI

    Nice!
    What city?

  • Simon

    Mine was ordered on the 10th and is still in transit in Shenzhen China but is supposed, according to FedEx, to be delivered tomorrow in Montréal… will see.

  • whiterock

    it goes from Anchorage to Mississauga then Vancouver according to my Fedex tracker

  • Hyrules

    Same here. Except i'm in Gatineau. I'm starting to doubt the date but hey ! there is still plenty of time before 6pm tomorrow.

  • Jason

    Mine still shows as In Transit in SHENZHEN CN. I preordered on May 10 as well. I dunno about being here for tomorrow.

  • JustinT

    Does this show on the fedex site? Mine says it left Memphis at 3:39am (May 27th). Looking at flight trackers, this is the time a FedEx flight went from Memphis to Toronto Airport, but I have seen no updates (and the flight has landed).

  • Delta_T

    Delta Ontario, about 1.5 hrs south of Ottawa

  • SweetPete

    Mine has the same status. Probably the package has not quite reached the Fedex facilities to be scanned and dispatched.

  • Dan00bhave

    MINE IS 1 HR AWAY AT THE HALIFAX AIRPORT IN NOVA SCOTIA. GETTING EXCITED NOW!

  • Sweepete

    I am in Ottawa as well and Fedex says “On schedule” for delivery Friday, 12:00 pm.

  • Ferro_kid

    I'm in the same boat as you guys. The FedEx site says my iPad left Shenzhen last night, but the estimated delivery time is still noon, Friday. Customer service at FedEx said my package most likely will arrive on time, but Monday is still a possibility.

  • schooner2000

    At Datrmouth NS FedEx facility now for Halifax. Highly unlikely they will be delivered today though if it missed the morning delivery run.

  • JustinT

    I live in BC – and would hope that the package goes from Memphis to Vancouver Direct. There is no reason why it shouldnt, as Memphis is a major FedEx hub with daily flights to Vancouver.
    However, all flights (either to Vancouver, or Toronto) should have landed by now….and I am eagerly sitting in my office at work waiting for some sort of notification.
    A friend, who ordered hours after me, seems to be ahead of me in the shipping by about 24 hours. Theirs has already been to Memphis (with a 24 hour lag in updates) but has shown up in Vancouver today. Why the 24 hour wait….who knows? Hopefully mine doesn't have this lag, or it will never be here on time.

  • schooner2000

    Looks like Apple is putting a hold on delivery until tomorrow. Showing a future delivery exception now and seen other say Fedex saying they were on hold will 28th.

  • Will Reiher

    Yep – Mine seems to be going in circles in china. I suspect that we're all on the same plane – perhaps it just wasn't scanned right. In the past, if a guaranteed delivery date is missed, Apple has been rather generous to anyone who called and complained. I got a free copy of iWork when my OS 10 was not delivered on time.

  • RRAN

    May 27, 2010 10:43 – At local FedEx facility – CALGARY, AB – Package not due for delivery

    Well, so much for early delivery…..

  • Sweetpete

    Lucky dog!

    Let's cross our finger that you are right. I've also often seen that the system is not up to date. It's in transit and suddenly someone from fedex is at the door with my package. Next thing i know the package is delivered. Come on fedex lol. Why is it that a plane is not fast enough. ok someone block me the fedex website. I'm checking every 2 minutes lolll arghhhh.

  • JustinT

    Does anyone follow my timeline, and have anything further than this? (to be shipped to BC, near Vancouver.) I am going crazy checking the FedEx site every ten minutes, haha!

    How did yours travel?

    I am in Calgary but mine is still in transit from china and that makes me wonder if i will be getting it tomorrow

  • Delta_T

    Mine left Memphis on May 26, 2010 3:27 AM
    Arrived in Ottawa at the sorting facility on May 27, 2010 5:16 AM
    Went to the local FedEx facility in Ottawa on May 27, 2010 7:38 AM
    And on the FedEx vehicle for delivery on May 27, 2010 9:38 AM

    And me, I'm standing in front of my window looking outside every two minutes…
    I live approx. 1.5 hours from Ottawa

  • JustinT

    Your a day ahead of me :(

  • robe5000

    mine showed up at my local location here in halifax, called fedex to hold for pick up, they told me apple said no pick up or delivers until tomorrow cause of what happened in the UK

  • Santy

    Same with me, when is your estimated delivery time? Mine says the 28th at 6:00, do you think that means I should get it then or it will arrive in My city then? (edmonton)

  • RIck

    My estimated delivery time is the 28th at 18:00 as well. It's now sitting in Mississauga awaiting customs clearance.

    The delivery time is when it will be delivered to you, so you should have it sometime tomorrow.

  • dwight

    Since ours says by 6:00PM, does that mean later in the afternoon? This works perfectly for me if so.

    I have the exact same timeline for an Ipad to be shipped in Ottawa….

  • Hyrules

    yes !! my ipad is in transit to mississauga, on !!!! Now i'm feeling more right about tomorrow delivery date !

  • Muntz

    My camera connection kit is now in “Prepared for Shipment” status. Does anyone know if this is going to ship from Shenzhen as well?

  • Delta_T

    May 27, 2010 1:41 PM: Delivery exception –> Future delivery requested

    May 27, 2010 5:02 PM: At local FedEx facility Ottawa

    So it was on the way, but they called it back!
    I guess they really don't want to deliver it too early.

  • JustinT

    Seems to be taking a long time to get out of Memphis to the more “local” sorting facilities….. which would be okay if I lived in one of these cities. Unfortunately I don't live in Vancouver, so I am expecting delivery on Monday (I hope no later!!).
    To be fair, this is what the confirmation email from Apple said when they shipped it. Which isnt the same as when I ordered it….
    Will see how it plays out, but Apple might hear from me about it. They can atleast throw me a free app or something, because I could have gone and waited in line somewhere tomorrow and got one. Hmmm..

  • Steve

    My Apple Case is prepared for Shipment too…. so i guess will be ship tomorrow and deliver next week…

  • Jason

    What happened in the UK?

  • http://www.coolusbtoys.com George

    Mine only got to In transit – MISSISSAUGA, ON (Paperwork available for non-FedEx broker) just now

    But i called Fedex and they say that it will be delivered tomorrow (Calgary) no problem. So i am a bit more calm :)

  • http://www.coolusbtoys.com George

    In that case it should be possible to get here tomorrow although the before noon delivery will be a close call mine now is at the n transit-MISSISSAUGA, ON-Paperwork available for non-FedEx broker and the times seem to be simular so that means it could be in Calgary tomorrow morning at 5

  • Mo

    Status – 4:30pm May 27th. Fedex says delivery exception (Regina), delivery for May 28th. They are holding them! Thats what the Fedex dude must have been pre-warned about. Sneaky, sneaky Steve Jobs! It's diabolical! lol

  • Peter

    Mine has been shipped. Went from china to Alaska. Then only the paperwork was sent to Mississauga. Now it has been stuck in Memphis. It says guaranteed by tomorrow 1200. I wonder how it will get here in less thank 24hr :S

  • Peter

    Oh and I forgot to mention, I paid extra for express shipping. Did anyone not pay for shipping an still have the same ETA as me? I live in ottawa On.

  • Peter

    I have the exact same timeline as you. My tracking is identical. Mine is goin to Ottawa.

  • Peter

    For those of you that got the ETA tomorrow, did any of you pay the express shipping or take the regular free shipping?

  • Delta_T

    regular shipping. And I -almost- got it a day early.

  • Jay0007

    Hi Justin

    I got my iPad it goes nonstop from Memphis to Vancouver

  • Jaiten

    Hey Peter it will arrive in Vancouver in very early morning

  • Santy

    Thanks Rick I was not sure, I am worried I may not get mine until tomorrow due to customs delay, I called in to Fed Ex and they said that its a possibility but my estimated delivery is still the same. I really don't want to have to wait over the weekend!

  • Hyrules

    Peter i'm right across the river in Gatineau and my ETA is tomorrow at 6pm. If fedex deliver on time which i really hope i will get it tomorrow. So in any case paying extra for express shipping my be a way for apple to make more money… and wont mostlikely get you your ipad faster.

    Grrr that' sucks….. When you're checking on the FedEx site… where is your iPad stuck ?? still in China ? or somewhere else ?

  • Steph

    I just received an email from Apple saying FedEx informed them they were going to miss the deadline due to a flight delay. After checking the FedEx tracking it looks like the “flight delay” is mainly due to the fact that my iPad mysteriously made it's way back to Alaska. What a screw up. No iPad for me tomorrow :(

    where do u live?

    Mine did a similar thing only it went from Alaska > Ontario and now back to Alaska ? Huh ?

    It said Mississauga and then they backtracked and said it was in anchorage.

    Estimated delivery May 28, 2010 by 6:00 PM

    do i anyone know what the exact time

  • rob

    just called FedEx said no flight delay will deliver may 28

    don't know to believe FedEx or Apple

  • Steve

    I didnt get the email yet…. but i have the feeling i will…. heheheh GRRRRRRR…..

    I'm sorry in the situation… it's really Apple's fault… Why they sent the package so close to the date… they were so scared to deliver the iPad one day too early ? like they did in all Europe ?

    For all the people who wont received on tomorrow, you should all call Apple and get something back… like some gift certificates for iTunes or something… because it's not fair for people who did pre-order 3 weeks ago… while they could just have visit the Apple Store….

    We still have a few hours to see if everyone will get the iPad on time… (and my fingers are crossed since i didnt get that email from FedEX and Apple)…

  • Jason

    Actually I think it was just the paperwork that went to Ontario “Paperwork available for non-FedEx broker”.

  • Daniel

    I just checked fedex, my new estimated ship date is may 31st!!! If that is true I will NEVER pre-order any product from apple, i know its not their fault but i might as well just have woken up a bit early and got it at the store! more exciting! lol
    I also talked with a fedex rep online, he said that there were a few problems with the shipment of ipads..he didnt say much more..but basically guaranteed that it would be here tomorow on the 28!

  • Daniel

    yes just got mine changed as well..the online tech did say that it will be here by the 28 though..in Montreal

  • David

    where do u live?

    where do u live??

    im also in vancouver and it says that i will be receving my ipad on may 28 by 6pm

    Also interested in where you live. I'm in SK, and my delivery date was pushed to the 31st as well. I don't see any more scheduled Fedex flights out of Memphis tonight… so I'm having a hard time seeing it getting here tomorrow.

  • yvrgal

    I just got an e-mail from Apple. Due to a flight delay, my iPad won't be delivered on the 28th. They will try to deliver on Saturday which is the 29th. The problem is my iPad is supposed to be delivered to my work place and we're not open on Saturday and Sunday. :-( (( What a disappointment!

  • Maly

    Delivery date was changed from may 28 to may 31, i think I will return iPad if it is real Apple is lieing and apple do not care when the delivery date will be cause they got their sales and I think iwill return it if it is not on may 28 and I will buy we-tab the German tablet.
    I got the same Fedex table as mentioned below.

  • David

    do u live in vancouver???

  • Maly

    Fedex changed delivery date from may 28 to may 31, I will return it and buy we-tab cause Apple lied to me and to lot of ppl.
    The timeline is the as below, I live in Toronto ON.

  • David

    hmmm
    mine still says may.28
    where does it say that

  • Alex

    Mine still says that , May 27, 2010 6:48 AM At dest sort facility MISSISSAUGA, ON
    after spending $996, it better be here today, or else apple better give me something for the troubles. And it better not be no $10 itunes gift card.

  • Daniel

    My fedex timeline:
    May 27, 1:10 pm arrived fedex location, Anchorage, AK
    May 27 5:18pm In transit, Mississauga, ON
    May 27 3:11pm deperated fedex location Anchorage, AK
    May 28 12:30 AM Arrived fedex location Memphis. TN

    Those are actual order of the website, messed up no? Why does it go from ontario to Memphis? on the ontario entry it says “paperword available for non fedex broker” so i guess its just some random entry..if not my ipad just did a crazy route!
    Damn now its going to be delivered late FML!

  • Daniel

    You can return it before it even gets to your location? I mean apple did already send the product..its just fedex…and they havent charged anyones credit cards yet so i dont know how this works!!! someone help!
    Recommend returning it and waking up early to get the ipad?

  • Daniel

    Ah well that confirms we wont be getting the ipads on the 28th, no flights from memphis then forget it! Unless the thing flies bright and early tomorow and they get a move on! Im in the southshore of montreal!
    I could of just drove downtown like 15 minutes and waited in line early for an ipad…rather wait a few hours than DAYS! this is lame!

  • Maly

    About 5 mnts after I wrote my last post Apple email me about a replacement Request for iPad wifi from the state
    The email title is: Apple product replacement service CANCELLED, why how!! I did not cancelled it…… Is it cause I wrote that I will return the iPad if not delivered on may 28?
    This is not fair at all, it seems like Apple acting as imperialist or dictator …………
    Ii don't believe it but if it is the truth (laughing). I think that this kind of ppl are the last who talk about service and customer satisfaction, all what they care is them self and F……….. The customers.

    Not that I'm worried but it's hard to tell when it'll get here.

  • Grant

    Same here. This is disappointing if it's not going to be delivered today. I think I'll call FedEx and get the scoop. If it's not going to arrive, I'll try my luck at the Apple Store and just return my pre-ordered one unopened when it does arrive (or sell it to a jealous co-worker).

    It's extreme, I know…but damn…I've realllly been looking forward to this!

  • Hyrules

    Mine is in Memphis Tennessee as 12:03am. didnt receive any email yet from apple and my delivery date is still today by 6pm . Keeping my finger crossed.

  • Grant

    Ok….update for all you people in “Mississauga, ON Package available for clearance” limbo….

    I called FedEx and the CSR told me in her system the package is still on track to be delivered by noon today (28th) in Winnipeg. Their system also shows it on the way to Winnipeg, but because the service centre here 'isn't open', the status hasn't been updated on the website.

    She joked that 99% of every call she's taken over the past hour were inquiries about the Apple shipment. She said “you can FEEL the excitement!”, and actually sounded excited herself.

    I'm glad I called, and am a little more hopeful. I'll hang tight for a few hours and let the system do it's thing.

    Grant

  • Josh

    Mine says that too, I sure hope it comes today

  • Edge

    I don't get it, since yesterday morning nothing has changed, no arrival in city, and yet it's still schedule to arrive today by noon. I'm haven't received any email notifications from Apple, but my past experience with Fedex is that it would show arrival in the city (usually in the night), and then on the truck for delivery sometime early in the morning.

My delivery schedule is today by 12:00 PM. The FedEx rep confirmed that I will get it by 12:00 PM and that it is transit from Kingston. Can't wait!!!!

  • Rob

    still slated to arrive for today, noticed something funny though….ya gotta laugh , the ipad is on time, but the basic power cable only left china this morning…..so i will have the ipad , 2 cases, screen protector, 3 skins……80 apps ready to go, and NO POWER SUPPLY!!!!! Now THATS funny…..
    You all may want to check and see if you have this too, i ordered mine at 7:00 am May 10th (ottawa)

  • Edge

    I'm in Calgary and it's been like this since yesterday morning. I'm thinking it won't arrive by noon, but one can hope. Apple will be able to get a refund on their shipping costs from Fedex, and we should ask that that refund be passed to us who receive it late.

  • Tyler

    My iPad according to fedex is still in Memphis well Arrived at FedEx location

  • Rob

    they try again next day

  • Muntz

    The iPad does come with a power supply, so you won't be completely out of luck. My camera connection kit is listed as shipped and is sitting in Shenzhen as well.

  • http://twitter.com/interlock interlock

    Mine is back to the 28th this morning. Still hope I guess, though the tracking hasn't updated since last night.

    A few people mentioned Fedex said the tracking isn't as up to date as it could be. Here's hoping.

  • http://twitter.com/champed Champed

    I just got off the phone with my friend that works for FedEx. He told me that FedEx and Apple have a special arrangement for the delivery of the iPads, and the iPads are not going on regular routes like other packages, which is why they aren't updated in the tracking system. However, he said they should be updated in the next couple of hours on the website.

    He reassured me that, since Apple coordinated the launch with Fedex, all iPads will be delivered to customers today. He said that a few iPads went out to customers yesterday, but they had to recall those trucks so people didn't receive their iPad a day early!

    One more thing he mentioned was that even though many of the iPads are scheduled to be delivered (and will be delivered) by noon, the latest someone would receive their iPad today will be 6pm. But most people should receive them by noon.

    Hope this helps. Enjoy your new iPads!! I can't wait for mine.

  • Mr. Speedy

    Same here – Montreal

  • Mr. Speedy

    I got my SIM card two days ago. iPad should show up sometime today.

  • http://enkerli.wordpress.com Enkerli

    It does sound encouraging. Wondering when it'll be updated, but since it still says it's on schedule, I'll trust them.

  • Tyler

    Just checked with fedex and my ipad wont come till monday. now time to call and b*^#@ at apple

  • Rob

    Ok, here is the deal. Called Fedex, for those who see a Missasauga to Memphis route, that is wrong. All packages that were in Missasauga last night were on route by 11:30 pm. Mine went from there , to Belleville at 1:00am, left there 30 mins later , got to Ottawa at 3:00am and is now on a truck for delivery by noon. Im 30 mins west of Ottawa. Ottawa and area are ALL to be done today if you were in Missasauga last night. That apparently includes Gatineau and close Quebec addresses….the only reason some see May 31 is them protecting themselves due to volume. Apparently for MAJOR metro areas, some of these trucks are FILLED with IPADS…nothing else.The Supervisor i spoke to…(Patty) said she has never seen anything like it, and she has been there 7 years. There were 24 calls ON HOLD and she guessed that 20 would be IPAD related.So everyone can relax if you were in Missasauga last night…eastern Ontario and western Quebec is covered today. Hope this helps some of you……Rob

  • Edge

    Thanks, it looks hopeful. I'm Calgary and the package showed Missasauga yesterday early morning. It's looking hopeful, can't wait!!

  • Hyrules

    Just received an email from apple. They will deliver my ipad tomorrow. There was a flight delay. i'm in Gatineau

  • Rob

    Just received mine now from the FedEx truck – I'm in Ottawa! Can't wait to start playing!

  • yvrgal

    So I finally called Fedex and the CSR did say that my packaged was already cleared and out for delivery already!! I said to the CSR that it says on the web that my package is still in Memphis. He said that the systems for some reason are not updating as it should be. My iPad will be delivered today by noon. On top of that, my Exo Sleeve from Waterfield is also arriving today. This is such a SWEEEEEEET day! I love FRIDAYS!! :-)

  • http://twitter.com/champed Champed

    Awesome! I'm in Ottawa, too. Can't wait to get the thing!

  • Brad

    I'm in the same boat Chris. FedEx dropped the ball big time.
    Do you think we can get a gift card or something out of this for our troubles?

  • http://enkerli.wordpress.com Enkerli

    Tracking changed a few minutes ago (around 10am, May 28):
    May 28, 2010 5:20 AM
    At dest sort facility
    MIRABEL, PQ

    So it does sound logical that it'd get here in the next two hours (Mirabel is about 40 minutes from here, I'm in Laval between Mirabel and Montreal).

  • JP

    Anyone have an iPad in Indianapolis right now ? Mine was there last night…

  • David

    Your iPad is currently in transit, however, FedEx has informed us
    that, due to a flight delay, your package will not deliver on May 28th
    as planned. We are closely tracking your order and working with FedEx
    to deliver it as soon as possible. FedEx will make every effort to
    deliver your iPad on Saturday, May 29th.

    If you have any questions, please call us at 1-800-676-2775, from
    5 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Friday, and 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday
    and Sunday, Pacific time.

    I'm in Belleville, ON. Grrrrr!

  • DijutalTim

    According to the Fedex people in Calgary, the trucks are out making deliveries as we speak. (This was as of 20 minutes ago)

  • Ryan

    Just phoned Fedex because my tracking info still said “Mississauga, ON Package available for clearance” but she could confirm it arrived in Edmonton overnight and was out for delivery. So phone because they have better access to information than the useless website! Enjoy your iPads everyone!

  • JL

    Same here. I live in Blainville so 10 minutes from Mirable's sorting facility. Still hope to see it by noon!

  • Terry Bussey

    Just got my shiny new ipad delivered!! Funny, it showed up about 10 minutes after my sim card! Now to figure all this out. (Winnipeg)

  • Yqg

    It's here!!!! Literally just arrived haven't even opened yet. Fedex stll only show May 27 3:39 am departed Memphis. Fedex lady said she had lots to deliver. Good luck everyone! Now I'm off to open mine.

  • Edge

    Sweet, dang I need to get some sleep (not only was I waiting for the iPad, good thing I work from home), but my iPhone poofed last night and wouldn't restore (had to do a full uninstall/reinstall on iTunes).

  • Limech

    I was trying to do some flight tracking and I believe that FedEx could have pulled this off (coming to Ottawa) using the following flights.
    FDX48
    ZGSX (China) 7:35PM CST (26th)
    PANC (Anchorage) 1:19 AKDT (27th)

    FDX94
    PANC 3:10PM AKDT (27th)
    KMEM (Memphis) 1:10AM EST (28th) <— this is where my status stops

    but if they used the following flights
    FDX130
    KMEM 5:10AM EST (28th)
    CYMX (Mirabel) 7:22AM EST (28th)

    FDX152
    CYMX 7:54AM EST (28th)
    CYOW 8:18AM EST (28th)

    then they should be able to delivery by noon today in Ottawa (and Montreal from Mirabel).
    I did receive the e-mail by Apple saying it won't be delivered today but I'm hoping FedEx will deliver today.

  • Alex

    I just got it :) it's 10:30 am here in Toronto.

  • Grant

    Woooo!!! Winnipeg! Mine must be out there on the wet roads too!

  • Yqg

    Hmm posted once, but doesn't seem to have got there. Mine arrived about 30 mins ago. Fedex tracking still showing departed Memphis 3:09 am on the 27th. Fedex lady said she had a lot to deliver. Good luck. Just opening mine now. Damn job is interfering with my pleasure :)

  • Rob

    everything Missasauga left yesterday, so you might be in luck…….

  • Ryan

    ???

    I understand we're all excited, but what “troubles” are you speaking of? You ordered a product, and it will arrive. Even if it arrives a day late, calm down man.

  • Yomane

    Yep, all good. Arrived at 10:50 in Montréal.

    Cool.

  • http://enkerli.wordpress.com Enkerli

    Still “on schedule,” an hour before the noon ETA.

  • http://twitter.com/Nourez Nourez Rawji

    Mine still hasn't shipped. I've got one of the ships by June 7th orders though. Anyone else who's got a June 7th ship date seen any activity on their account?

  • SweetPete

    Ipad now out of the “Memphis” limbo and now at local (Ottawa) facilty….. I expect delivery sometimes today, mailroom staff is on the lookout for a Ipad-like package from FedEx….

  • whiterock

    Same here, just checked flights to yvr and Fedex laned at 636AM fingers crossed for late afternoon

  • SweetPete

    Thanks Rob, this is good news as I am in Ottawa….

  • Alex

    It's fast, I'm using it right now as I'm typing.

  • Terry

    Yea – good day to stay home and play here in Winnipeg. The guy who delivered mine said most of his deliveries today are packages from Apple!

  • Peter

    Seems like FEDEX is very slow and inaccurate (3hours delay) in updating their system in whereabouts of packages. Many usual shipping steps are not shown at all.
    At 8:50AM in Edmonton, AB it showed only package still sitting in Mississauga, waiting for custom clearance.: May 27, 2010 10:01In transit MISSISSAUGA, ON Package available for clearance
    At 9:06 it showed :
    May 28, 2010 05:56 At dest sort facility EDMONTON, AB
    May 27, 2010 10:01In transit MISSISSAUGA, ON Package available for clearance

    Bottom line, for this Apple shipment, looking at Fedex tracking doesn't give much meaningful information as the shipping as someone mentioned, doesn't go “normal” Fedex way. Usual information about coming&leaving cities or leaving customs are missing. (there is no leaving Mississauga or coming to Edmonton info). Now it shows sitting from 6AM on desk in Edmonton. Probably it is already long time “on truck for delivery”, but I suspect that this info would not be posted for hours or if at all. Tracking of package was good until it reached Canada, then it was sparse, incomplete and delayed.

  • guest

    I'm in Calgary and am still waiting. I still have the status as being in Transit from Mississauga.
    I hope it comes soon. I actually missed the launch in the USA by 2 days. I left on the Wednesday before it came out there.

  • Josh

    I got mine at 10:30AM this morning!!! I was a little worried because the fedex site told me it was still in mississauga going through sorting…

  • Chris

    I've heard it's doubtful due to certain clauses when you purchase from them? And I guess to be fair, they indicating in their original email that the latest delivery date would be May 31st. Anyway, it sucks :(

  • Chris

    I think you'll be getting yours today for sure. My tracking info hasn't changed from last night. :(

  • Bob

    I'm in Vancouver. I called FedEx @8:55 a.m PDT. My iPad is in Burnaby, BC, and should be delivered soon. As has been mentioned before, they're having problems with their tracking info page due to high traffic.

  • Yay

  • John

    Just to confirm what others have said…… My Fedex tracking still says it's clearing in Mississauga, but Fedex just phoned and said it's on the local delivery truck (along with about 75 others) and will be delivered by 3:30 this afternoon. I am in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario :-)

  • Hyrules

    Je suis de Gatineau. J'ai recu un courriel ce matin que mon ipad serait livrer demain à cause de délais dans les vols. Je garde espoire d'un miracle mais je m'attend de le recevoir demain.

  • Real

    Hum moi c'est encore écrit …Aux installations locales de FedEx SAINT-HUBERT, PQ..mais je pense que la mise a jour de leur site a un certain délai..la livraison est programmé pour aujourd'hui encore alors j'attend..sauf que je doit bientot partir pour allé travaillé.

  • Brad

    I just got off the phone with FedEx. They said that there will be only saturday deliveries for iPads that have been attempted to be delivered today (Friday). So it looks like I will get my on Monday at the earliest. That's not what the email suggests.

    Not happy at all. I pre-ordered on the first day but I could have just went to any bestbuy/futureshop or the apple store to pick on up today and gotten it quicker.

  • Kevin

    Called Fedex. It was showing as delivering today at 12 noon until 12 noon then changed to no estimated delivery time. FedEx says there was a customs problem and it's not going to arrive until Monday. Apple's email said tomorrow. So far not amused, and I would like to get a straight answer about when I can expect it.

  • Chris

    I'm in the exact same boat as you. I'm at work so I haven't called FedEx yet but did you get the sense that there won't be any chance of even a Saturday delivery? If so, that REALLY sucks.

    Did call Apple and see what they could do about it?

  • Froose

    I am on Vancouver Island. Just called FedEx and was told that there is a chance mine will not arrive until Monday as it left Ontario late. He said FedEx does not ship on Saturday. I'm keeping my fingers crossed though!

  • DRC

    I am in toronto and the status is still showing as at sort facility. Shows deliver by 10:30am……but nothing yet. Anyone else have this?

    May 27, 2010 6:48 AM – At dest sort facility – MISSISSAUGA, ON

  • Nat

    Finally got my IPAD at 11:50 AM this morning. I'm in Ottawa… I love it!!!

  • http://imageryfusion.com Pierre

    Got my iPad at 11am, it was in mississauga since the 26th. I'm in St. Catharines, Ontario

  • http://enkerli.wordpress.com Enkerli

    Got my iPad. The driver was all smiles. She said she gets to see very happy people, today.

  • http://www.coolusbtoys.com George

    Got the same email this morning at 7.30 i called apple and that was no use.

    But went to the apple store and bought my iPad. I will not be preordering any more from Apple.

    And now when my iPad arrives (probably Monday) i have to return that one to the apple store.

  • Hyrules

    Just talk to fedex and he told me that my ipad should arrive today despite the email from apple. Weird.

  • Real

    Chanceux..moi j'avais raison pour le site de fedex qui est lent a faire les mises a jour car la ca vient de changer pou…May 28, 2010 10:01 AM Dans un véhicule FedEx pour livraison…pouvue qu'il arrive bientot. En tout cas bon plaisir avec le tien.

  • http://imageryfusion.com Pierre

    You should be getting it soon, they are not updating their website until they delivery it to you… Mine was here in st. catharines at 8 this morning from Mississauga, but they didn't update the site until after they delivered it. Also I heard their are taking a bit longer to deliver in bigger cities…

  • Hyrules

    D'apres le gars de fedex le miens aussi devrait arriver aujourd'hui !!! Sauf que le site de fedex me dit encore qu'il est arriver au centre fedex de memphis tennesse.

  • Brad

    I'm on hold with apple right now (30 mins)…
    I had also put in a address change request with apple last night (so that it would be shipped to my home address on saturday). That didn't go through either according to FedEx.

    The FedEx lady was sure that I would not get it tomorrow and even went and checked with her supervisor because they had gotten some new apple/ipad instructions.

    Looks like no chance for a Saturday delivery.

  • mark

    SSM deliveries are already occurring. Just got mine.

  • Greg

    Yay… on the truck for delivery in Winnipeg. Should have it in a couple of hours.

  • Mr. Speedy

    Got mine at 11:14 local time – Montreal

  • http://enkerli.wordpress.com Enkerli

    The microSIM was a bit hard to fit in and it seems to be required to proceed with the rest of the activation process.

  • Real

    Je trouve que Apple a manqué son coup..pourquoi ne pas avoir expédié les ipad quelques jours plus tot et avoir dit a fedex de ne rien livré avant le 28.. cela aurait évité des situations comme la tienne…car je trouve que je n'ai pas vraiment d'avantage de l'avoir précommendé…

  • http://enkerli.wordpress.com Enkerli

    Le site me disait que c'était dans le camion avant dix heures et il est arrivé vers 12h20. La chauffeuse trouvait ça vraiment drôle. Faut dire que j'étais dans l'entrée quand elle est arrivée. Le numéro de porte est difficile à voir et j'avais peur qu'elle soit mélangée.
    Là, je suis en train de synchroniser pour la première fois, après avoir restauré les données de mon iPod touch. La connexion à iTunes a pris genre une minute mais il fallait que je mette la microSIM pour continuer. J'ai mis la SIM (il y a un petit «trombone» pour ouvrir la porte) et essayé de m'inscrire sur Rogers. J'ai rebranché l'iPad et c'est là qu'il m'a demandé si je voulais restaurer. Ç'a pris environ 5 minutes. Après ça, il a redémarré (comme si c'était une mise à jour du firmware) et a tout de suite commencé à synchroniser. Ç'a pris environ 15 minutes, pour 8Go (y compris environ 900 tounes et baladodiffusions).
    Bon, il est prêt, maintenant. Youppi! ;-)

  • Kevin

    I'm in Toronto. I had 'deliver by 10:30 AM' until about 11:AM when it the 'delivery date' line from the tracking page disappeared.

  • joe

    In Montreal, this doesn't look good, the fedex status says “Delivery exception – Future delivery requested”. Any idea what's going on?

  • Kevin

    Apparently the gods have chosen to heed my pleas…it's now on a vehicle for delivery. yay!

  • Brad

    Chris… another update.
    I called apple and they offered me a free accessory for the trouble. So I have a apple case being sent to me (in 3 to 4 weeks ) when they become available.

    You might want to give that try as well, so that you can get something for your troubles.

  • Real

    Yessss..je vient de recevoir le mien..10 minutes avant que je parte pour le travail…la journée de travail va etre longue..ok salut a plus tard.

  • Sundoctor

    FedEx's website said it would deliver by 12 until 12 and then the estimated delivery disappeared. Also received an email from Apple saying no delivery until tomorrow. I'm in Ottawa and pre-ordered on 10 May at 11AM. Sigh, another night of waiting I guess.

  • Edge

    I'm in Calgary, and mine shows at sort facility as of 7:55 am, and on the truck for delivery at 9:42 am. Later than I would have hoped, but still gonna arrive today.

  • Rod

    Just called Fedex. they said the trucks are on the road in Vancouver, but the delivery time has been pushed back to 5pm from noon. Might get it today after all. So what to make of that ominous email from Apple? hmmm…

  • Moses

    In Richmond Hill. Fedex tracking gave “delivery exception”. Called Fedex and turns out due to overwhemliming orders fedex delivering today until midnight (hence the exception). Expecting arrival changed from noon to 7pm. Ordered this one for the kids and got mine from the states so will survive the wait.
    Anyone can “sign” for it so just make sure someone always home till midnight tonight. Will post arrival.
    Enjoy. Its an AWESOME device (btw. sent from my ipad)

  • Dan

    Just received in Lethbridge, Alberta.

  • whiterock

    just came I'm Stoked

  • Will Reiher

    Apple offered me a free iPad case, iPad keyboard dock, wireless keyboard or a regular dock because of the delay. I took them up on the regular dock – didn't need yet another keyboard.

  • John

    Thanks for the info Mark, hope you are enjoying your iPad, still waiting for mine to get here, they said between 2:30 and 3:30 this afternoon.

  • Will Reiher

    They donate it to a homeless person or re-sell it to your neighbour. They'll deliver it the next working day or if you are lucky could could also pick it up at the depot or if you get them on a good day sometime they'll send the truck back if you call them.

  • Robin

    My iPad just arrived!

    Woo Hoo!!!

  • Peter

    Mine came in this afternoon to Ottawa.

  • Delta_T

    Got it !

  • Chris

    Hey again,

    I checked my tracking number for FedEx and it updated. The status is now “Delivery Exception” and a new line:

    May 28, 2010 11:19 AM Delivery exception MISSISSAUGA, ON Future delivery requested

    Not sure what this means yet. The expected delivery got changed from May 28th, 2010 6pm to May 28th, 2010 11:59pm.

    So not before midnight for me? I'll investigate.

  • Hyrules

    Get a delivery exception it's in mississauga ont. should receive it by midnight today !

  • Sundoctor

    Me too – I'm in Ottawa.

  • Greg

    It's been 'on the truck for delivery' since 8:00 this morning… I'm getting sick of staring out the window ;) Hope it shows up soon!

  • Hyrules

    Right across the river. Think this will be a long evening.

  • Mike

    Me too in Montreal

  • Moses

    Received it at 340 pm. Fedex doin well under the circumstances.

  • RCS_1

    Got mine at 1pm in Brampton. THis was two hours after the email from Apple indicating it would not be delivered until Saturday due to Flight Delays.

  • Grant

    Well, Apple/Fedex came though for me (and apparently many others). Thank you Apple!

    This device is amazing.

  • David

    me too im in vancouver

  • Andrew

    luckily i didn't have to wait till tomorrow. i just got it =)

  • agence

    Fedex told me that it would arrive by tonight. 4:30 and still not here. Receptionist is gone. I guess it may arrive Monday.

    How brilliant of Fedex to schedule deliveries on a Friday night at government offices.

    This sucks.

  • Charlotte

    I just called FedEx because my tracking displayed a “delivery exception” but it was still saying that it would be delivered today by six. Well apparently I will not be receiving it because for some reason it was late clearing customs out of Mississauga. They were not sure why it even went to the East Coast since I am on the West Coast (40 minutes outside Vancouver)! And of course they do not do Saturday delivery in my area. They did say that most of Vancouver should be receiving theirs today and that they also had the option of picking it up from the Richmond shipping depot if it was not going to be delivered today. Again I don't have that option because mine is still sitting in friggen Ontario. The saddest part? I traded shifts with someone so that I would be home today and the shift I got in return is Monday…. so now I have to wait until Tuesday : (

    I called Apple and they tried to console me by refunding the iPad dock I purchased but I held out and they refunded the iPad dock and the extra iPad charger I bought. So $70 and taxes was what I was refunded but I would trade that for having my iPad today. I am so disappointed.

    Mine was on the truck, but still not arrived. Now the date shows May 31???? Calgary.

  • DijutalTim

    Just got a call from Fedex that said some of the Calgary shipment ended up in Winnipeg but will be available for pickup tonight (hopefully).

  • Froose

    Mine arrived at 1PM PST on Vancouver Island in BC!

  • Charles

    Thanks to FedEx, and in a way Apple who made sure the stores were supplied before me, I will have to wait until Monday to get mine, as FedEx was unable to bring their f”/$% plane to Montreal before late tonight! Even though they told me at 1:30pm they would deliver by 6:00pm today, I got a staff member to stay at the office until then, I just found out they would land in Montreal only late tonight… And Apple to offer me 70$ rebate for the inconvenience! Hey guys at Apple, when a customer pre-orders on May 10th 1200$ worth of iPad and accessories, don't you think money is NOT an issue, but honoring delivery is? What peeves me the most is that at 9:00am this morning, my neighborhood Apple Store was line free!!! Arghhhh!!! APPLE, YOU WILL NOT GET ME TO PRE-ORDER ANYMORE!

  • Hyrules

    well it's now 7:30pm and i'm starting to wonder if i'll get my ipad tonight. As time goes by i'm worring more and more. I'm starting to doubt it.

  • Brad

    I got the same message.
    FedEx told me that I shouldn't expect it tonight even though it says that on the website. However I should receive it tomorrow (saturday)

  • Cindy

    I placed my order on may 11th and it arrived exactly two minutes before the promised noon on May 28th.

  • Hyrules

    dont lose faith those of you waiting. I just got off the phone with fedex. Apple is making special arrangement with fedex to deliver tonight… that is for my ipad. They will probably also deliver tomorrow.

  • jpraadt

    I just called Apple, and waited on hold for 27 minutes, and when I spoke to the guy he said that my projected delivery date on his computer say the 31st, though every thing I've seen on my end says the 28th and I ordered on the first day of preorders. The representative said that one should expect delivery 1 to 3 days after they ship (the 25th) which would be the 28th, so I'm not sure where the 31st is coming from. He finished up by telling me that if it isn't here by three days after the 31st, call back and they'll refund my purchase or send a new one out.

    Gee, thanks.

    The lesson I've learned from this, is that if you choose to pre-order a newly released product from apple, you get the benefit of possibly getting it a week after it's available in stores. Oh, the privilege!

    By now, I'm pretty irritated, because every single time it's supposed to be here, not only does the date get pushed back, but my iPad is mysteriously further away than previously reported. Maybe I should call FedEx and tell them that the plane is flying in the completely wrong direction.

    I started off concerned, began to get frustrated, and now I'm well on my way to getting angry. Seriously unimpressed that both Apple and FedEx both seem to have no idea what the hell is going on. Apple I will forgive because they make good products, FedEx is unreliable and slow, and always screws up any deliveries for me. BLuh.

  • jpraadt

    Congrats!

    It finally arrived in Montreal at 8:00pm. Quickly got a call from FedEx that it was available and a half-hour later it was in my hands. I'm glad the wait is finally over.

  • Daniel

    UPDATE! Just spoke with a fedex rep..very nice lady said it has been crazy but for anyone that has the delivery by 11:59 PM today the 28 may be delivered by then as they are delivering the ipads until 12pm at night! Im in the southshore and they said that all the ipads are on the road as we speak! Good luck all! In MTL

  • edge

    Well, it arrived at 4:00 pm. The Fedex guy said another order was coming in at 5, and that they'd be delivering them on Friday night. Other than that, this thing is awesome!!!!!!!

  • Hyrules

    Got mine at 9:30pm !!!! Bugger my internet provider just went down at the same time just got it back now !

  • jpraadt

    Glad to hear you got yours! Still waiting here, hehe.

  • jpraadt

    Where are you seeing that 11:59 PM time?

    EDIT: I'm an idiot- there it is…

  • RC

    Why didn't Apple just ship the ipad from Canada, this should save a lot of FedEx charge from shipping each one individually from China and have more control of the shipping time to get it deliver on May 28.

    Anyway, I am waiting for mine which they said the expected delivery is Jun 2 which I hope it will be sooner, it has left Anchorage this evening, I live in Markham, ON.

    Anyone with similar delivery time can tell when would I expect to get my iPad? I hope it will arrive Monday afternoon.

    You're actually looking pretty good for monday, Tuesday at the latest. (Don't quote me on this!)

  • RP

    Mine is exactly the same. But I'm in Winnipeg. I'd be ok with tuesday, as i'm off that day.

  • http://twitter.com/Nourez Nourez Rawji

    what day did you order on?

  • Charlotte

    Apparently my iPad is going to be delivered tonight before midnight according to my FedEx tracking which has now been updated to say “On FedEx truck for delivery”. I am very surprised because both Apple and FedEx told me earlier today that there was no way I would be receiving it before Monday.

  • iMad

    I work for Fedex Vancouver some iPad's in Vancouver arrived late today around 7pm. So I'm guessing whoever the unlucky ones are will be getting it this Saturday if your lucky or Monday. Sorry..

  • Charlotte

    My iPad just arrived 9:47pm! I live about 40 minutes outside Vancouver.

    Sorry to everyone who is still waiting for theirs, I feel your pain.

    I'm also in Montréal and also pre-ordered within the first hour that pre-ordering was available for the iPad. I chose to pre-order to be assured to be the first person in my circle of friends and colleagues to have the iPad. I was excited when, on May 24, my iPad showed as ship (24 hours later, my credit card also showed it as shipped!) and then lamented when I watched the package travel from SHENZHEN CN to SHENZHEN CN to SHENZHEN CN to SHENZHEN CN to SHENZHEN CN and then to ANCHORAGE, AK followed by MISSISSAUGA, ON (Now in Canada <- Great news) then back to ANCHORAGE, AK from where it went to MEMPHIS, TN and again to MEMPHIS, TN before it went back to MISSISSAUGA, ON and now sits in ST-HUBERT, QC at a FedEX facility that won't deliver until Monday because St-Hubert is on the South Shore of Montréal and I live on the West Island. Ironically, many of my friends and colleagues went during their lunch hours to the Apple Store at Fairview or Future Shop or Best Buy and picked up their iPads. Apple through this was very polite and helpful — the agent I spoke with attempted to re-route the order and did give me a $45 credit on a future purchase. I'm not upset with Apple; I am miffed with FedEX….and am kicking myself for pre-ordering. Sadly, I'll probably do the same when the next iPhone is released.

  • Mo

    Got mine yesterday morning! It's better than what I thought it would be. Typing this is easy too! It's fast and the screen is super clear. I'm happy with it!

  • Peter

    I ordered early and it shipped on May 25th. Delivery was promised by noon on Friday. That promise was broken. The Fedex website says that they didn't even attempt to deliver to my business address after 7:00pm on Friday evening after the office was closed. Now it will sit in the Fedex facility until Monday.

    It is hardly believable that Fedex is so incompetent that they actually sent a truck out to attempt a delivery to a major downtown high rise office building after 7:00pm on a Friday. It is far more likely that no delivery was attempted at all.

    This is frustrating and disappointing. Fedex and Apple – you suck!!!!

  • guest

    I ordered on May 15th. If yours hasn't shipped yet I wouldn't worry. My ipad is travelling around a lot. Yours might be more direct.
    After Lantau it went to Anchorage then to Mississauga now it's in Memphis, TN

  • Donald

    I'm in the exact situation. I live in Richmond Hill. Originally it was a June 1 delivery date but then it moved to June 2, which sucks. My iPad is in Memphis right now.

    I hope the change in delivery date was FedEx just trying to be overly conservative. Based on what I've been reading here, I'm fully expecting to recieve the iPad tomorrow or Tuesday. The big unknown is how the Memorial Day holiday will mess things up.

  • RC

    Doesn't look like that I will be getting my iPad today or tomorrow, I called FedEx today and asked them when should I expect to receive my iPad, they said that they can't tell how long it will take to get through Custom and even it has gone through, they will have to put it on hold until June 2 for delivery because that what the order is specified.

    How long does it usually take to get through custom?
    Also, would I expect to pay any tax and duty when I get the package? I hope not since I order from Apple Canada even though they ship it from China.

    I just find it strange that they have to put the package on hold till Wednesday even if it's available for delivery tomorrow? Anyone else experienced the same delay?

    Preordered on May 20th. Got an email today saying they shipped the $45case. The iPad itself will ship on June 7th. What am I supposed to do, stare at the empty case for 5 days?

  • Tatar

    Ordered March 25 @ 2 a.m. Just now has “prepared to ship”, but delivery date still given as April 22.

  • Tucks

    So this year Apple seems to be using UPS in Canada. My new iPad shows as shipped in Apple’s email and they gave me a tracking number with UPS, but 48 hrs later, UPS still doesn’t have it in their system. Doesn’t look like a 16 Mar delivery as promised is very likely. Anybody else in the same situation?
