    I didn't see new airpods? They're not a real priority for me, but if new ones are released I'd hop on the originals (for a lower price).

    Estimated ship date : 11/23- 12/31

    Best Buy charged my Amex yesterday and it says my devices are ready for pick up 11/7. So hopefully get it at store opening tomorrow.

    Must be you, as I leave town on Thursday and won't be back until Saturday. I may not be able to set mine up until this weekend.

    Deliverys been happening in Australia for 5 hours now also for walk ins. So far people are surprised by the reduced 12.9 size. Cant decide myself, just under 2K for 256gb 4G, but i can get one for 5 years Interest Free and we have data share sims so don't have to buy another data plan.
    Using my daughters old Air 1 now. Decisions.

    My BestBuy order says it's ready for pick up.. but the iPad only. Delay on the Pencil / Delay on the Keyboard, and WTF-Delay on Apple Care. At this point I may call them and ask for a refund and I will wait until 3rd party keyboards are out and I can walk in and buy it at once. I really don't want the iPad w/o a pencil or keyboard.

    LOL - and in my case, the new Apple pencil arrived this morning. iPad left Taiwan about an hour ago.

    So is the pencil not bundled with iPad? I see people saying it’s shipping separately. I’m confused as Verizon makes no mention that its shipping separately

    The Apple Store in Seattle has it ready for pick up today, and the version I actually wanted. The trade off is that I won't actually pick it up until tomorrow (big deal, but I like 1st day jitters) and because I am getting it at Apple instead of BB I have to pay $200 in tax. So I am debating. I called BB and they promised me my full order will be ready today, just a system glitch. I told them I will give them until 12/Noon if if not, I will call back and cancel (after ordering from Apple for pick up)

    It's a separate purchase, $129. If you did not order it, when you ordered your iPad you're not getting one.

    The pencil is a separate item/purchase from the iPad. It may be that in Verizon’s case that they will ship both items (iPad & pencil) together??

    Yes, sorry... the iPad comes with the iPad, charger, cable & adapter only. The Pencil, Any Case, and Apple Care are all separate purchases. They break it down so it seems reasonable until it all adds up.

    Apple Pencil (2nd Gen) $129
    Apple Care $129
    Apple iPad Pro 12.9 $1499.00
    Apple Folio Smart Keyboard = $199
    Tax (for Seattle) $171.83
    Total $2146.83

    I got mine yesterday but couldn’t do anything with it since it was restoring from iCloud all night.

    Quick update:

    • I love it
    • Restore from iCloud (50GB) took less than 5 minutes
    • Email, Evernote, Security Cameras, Safari & Chrome, Notability all work really well

    Mine was ‘scheduled’ for a 3pm delivery today... at 3:35 no sign of it yet.

    Have to head to class so I posted up that pre-sign delivery form. Hope to return to my iPad waiting for me in a couple of hours!

    Edit: It actually came the minute I was walking out the door to class. - you can bet I set it up while in Trusts & Estates haha

    Biggest disappointment thus far?

    USB-C cable that comes with it is WAY too short.

    I could not restore from iCloud, it could either be the hotel Wifi is slow or Apple servers are taxed. I backed up my 10.5 Pro to my laptop and restored from that.

    I come from the days of phone couplers and 300 baud modems.... Hotel's haven't improved much since those days. The speed is still the same.

    I get it, been in the computer biz since the 80s. Was the Systems Manager for Kinko's Corp, Ventura CA (main HQ), I specialized in the HP-3000 MPE/iX Operating System, that was mostly programmed in Cobol. Each computer was a large as a big fridge.
