New iPad Pre-Order Ship Dates Changed To “June”

by on May 22nd, 2010

Did you pre-order your iPad in Canada? The iPad’s arrival is coming in under a week. The first batch of orders had ship dates of May 28th. Then, a couple days after the May 10th pre-order date, ship dates were moved back to June 7th.

Now, the Apple website shows a pre-order ship date of just “June”. The iPad has been selling like hotcakes and supply is dwindling as Apple Stores cannot keep up with the demand.

Here’s the old June 7th ship date:

…and the current “June” ship date:

So it looks like all new iPad pre-orders are going to come later into June. Let’s hope your iPad comes soon!

Thanks to JamilD and everyone who sent this in!

    Oh well. Can't say I'm concerned as I type this note on my iPad from my home in Oshawa. Glad I drove to Buffalo three weeks ago.

  • Hehe…yes, using an iPad before it has been officially released in
    Canada is pretty sweet. I rarely go on my MacBook to surf the net now.
    The iPad is the ultimate “couch device”.

  • Xiantayne

    I can't wait. Friday can't come soon enough! I was fortunate enough to get my two orders in first thing May 10th.

  • Any Canadian pre-orderers received shipment notifications, or noticed their order status update to “prepared for shipment” yet? I ordered 2 minutes after pre-orders started in Canada and mine's still marked as “not yet shipped.” I haven't heard of many (any?) Canadian orders that have updated but it seems like pretty much every UK order has already updated.

  • Mort

    Apple sent me a shipment notice last week…for my SIM card, it's already on the way. Everything else is listed as not yet shipped but still showing 'by May 28' on the Apple 'Order Status' page for my pre-order. So I am hopeful that they kept track on a 'first come, first served' basis and that us early birds will still get the first batch shipped to Canada.

  • Mort

    why are you guys toying with our feelings….?

  • Sean

    I can't wait to go in on the 28th and only buy a case while everyone else is stuck in line lol

  • Because it's fun! πŸ™‚

  • weldon

    YEA..my Apple Order page has been updated to: Prepared for Shipment!!


  • Steve

    Lucky you πŸ™‚
    A few days ago, i did receive an email from Apple.. telling me my Simcard was sent and in a separate package from my iPad…. so it's shipped already….. but for my iPad and case…. still not shipped yet or not prepared too…. I'm sure will be today or tomorrow…. People should posted also their first order number when they give the update….. mine is W22390xxxx.

  • weldon

    My case and dock are still in the “Not yet shipped” category…but the iPad is happily in the “Prepared for Shipment” section!
    I'll post again when OI receive the Shipped notice!

  • Which iPad did you order, and what day/time did you place your order?

  • Scott

    So i ordered my iPad the first day that i could (may 10th) and the conformation email says shipped by: May28th. Has that changed for me too? or does it only affect orders after the day i got mine?

  • Sandman

    Mine says “delivers by May 28″…

  • weldon

    WI-FI 64GB
    I placed my order May 10, 2010 at 03:21 AM PDT

  • Muntz

    I ordered a Wi-Fi 64GB on May 10th at 2:22am PDT and my status is still “Not yet shipped”.. they must be shipping these based on region or something? I'm in the GTA.

  • This change only affects new orders. If your confirmation email said it'd arrive on the 28th, then it'll arrive on (or possibly a day or two before) the 28th. You can always check http://apple.com/orderstatus if you want to be sure.

  • weldon

    I'm in Nova Scotia so that adds another day or two in transit

  • yvrgal

    I ordered my iPad online on May 11th. They already charged my credit card and it says May 28th on arrival. However, the status doesn't say it's being prepared for shipment. I called Apple Care and the lady said that shipments are leaving tomorrow. Hmmmm…. makes me want to call them again tomorrow to confirm.

  • Hyrules

    It is unlikely that they will ship tomorrow as it is Victoria Day holiday. Everything will be closed include shipping services. As for my order it is still in “Not yet Shipped” status. I ordered on may 10th around 7:30 am EDT or 4:30 PST

  • If they ship out of China, as expected, it shouldn't matter if it's a Canadian holiday or not.

  • Muntz

    That is exactly what I was thinking. I'm hoping to get mine and the camera connection kit in time for a trip to Nova Scotia on June 3rd.

  • Irving

    Saving your costs by turn your Wi-Fi into 3G, after you getting your ipad, this is the most important problem that will annoying your with “the iPad 3G not only costs 120 USD more than the Wi-Fi only model but will also you require you to take on a new data plan from AT&T at approximately $15 to $30 a month.”, just like that, you can do something about it.

  • David

    I orederd mine on May 10th but it still says NOT YET SHIPPED and also haven’t got an email from Apple.

    The status of my iPad order is now Prepared for Shipment! Yeeeeaaahhhhh!!!! πŸ™‚

  • Tornadogirl

    I've been purposely keeping myself busy all night so I would stop checking my order status but I thought that I would check one last time before going to bed and lo and behold, my order is now Prepared for Shipment as well! So excited and it wouldn't break my heart one bit if it was delivered a day or two early!

    Checked my Apple account this morning and my ipad is now listed as 'prepared for shipping'. I preordered mine late in the day on May 10.

  • jpraadt

    My ipad, being delivered to Saskatchewan, has had it's delivery status changed to “prepared for shipment”. Woo!

    Thongs are starting to get exiting over here…

  • Hyrules

    My order has now been updated to Prepared for shipment !!! Yay !

  • yvrgal

    My order was updated at 12 AM this morning as Prepared for Shipment. I'm really super excited now. I was talking to an Apple Specialist in the store and he said I'm very lucky to have one on the 28th. He said they expect herds of people on that day in Vancouver.

  • Steve

    And now… who's going to be the first…. Shipped…..
    Mine last night was updated to prepared for shipment…. while my case is still not shipped…. and my SimCard was shipped friday…
    I'm in montreal.

  • Mort

    Yep, mine is prepared for shipment to BC, so looks like May 28 is the target indeed

  • Dwight

    How excited are you? Are the 'thongs' riding up? haha

  • David

    Nevermind, mine now says PREPARED FOR SHIPMENT!

  • weldon

  • robe5000

    oh my, just noticed it was picked up in SHENZHEN CHINA……i hope it makes it for the 28th!

  • Doug

    I did a preorder May 10 here in Canada and placed that order @ 12:10 am….
    Ok, so Apple Canada gave me a day that it would. Deliver may 28.
    Ok, so watch my order….. Had all sort of other items or order and ony two items were shipped out with an ETA of longer than it takes to walk to Moscow.
    Today 24th I see they have shipped the Ipad from Schenzhen China AND now dlibery is to be the 31st.
    The other items have not been shipped
    PRETTY FRIGGEN Piss poor service!!!!!
    Promise and promise and then factory gave shipper the PAD late and now promise is out the window.
    Shipped out from China 4 days before promised date!
    Good going apple with a small c……. You flunked the test!'
    Northern. BC Canada

  • Doug

    Remember it's coming from china and probably shipped like mine

  • Tornadogirl

    Personally I would be more than a little peeved if my iPad doesn't get delivered 'til the 31st. I don't think it's fair that the people who pre-ordered their iPads have to wait an extra 3 days to get their order when people who line up at the Apple store (or any other Apple retailer) can get one on the 28th.

    I am going to give Apple the benefit of the doubt on this one 'cause I find that a lot of shipping times are inflated and have received other orders before the date indicated.

  • It's not the 28th yet. You've gotta believe it'll arrive on time. At least yours has shipped – many of us still have our May 28th orders at the “not yet shipped” or “prepared for shipment” state. Think positive!

    I have the exact same experience as you, but check the Fedex tracking, it shows the 28th unlike the apple site.

  • yvrgal

    It only took 3 days for my Macbook to arrive from China months ago. I'm sure it will be fine. Hopefully we all receive our new toy on the 28th.

    Aaw, man! It's that darn iPhone autocorrection again. In this case, I'm going to choose to stand by my statement. Yes- thongs tend to be exiting, here there and everywhere. At least 90% of the time, hah.

  • Dwight

    lol! πŸ™‚ Made my day, thanks :). Going to be a good week for people who are waiting!

  • yvrgal

    Ok, I just checked the tracking for my iPad and it says my shipment went from Anchorage to Memphis and then back to Anchorage again?? I guess from Anchorage it will hit Richmond, BC and then out for delivery by noon tomorrow! Yeahhhh!!!! πŸ™‚
