    Tracking by reference at FedEx worked for me. I used my phone number as the reference. No dashes or spaces.

    That means they haven't created a tracking # yet or are ready to process your mini maybe better luck tomorrow.

    Same as me. What state are you in? I'm in VA. I'm just wondering how big of an area is serviced by their Middleton, PA staging location.

    You're lucky. I got tracking info from UPS via the reference number for my smart cover and 32GB Black Mini and they are both leaving China. (Sure wish my new toys were closer. ;(

    I think it just depends on where you are located. East Coast gets shipped to from a staging area in PA, West Coast gets supplied directly from China. The middle of the US, not sure.

    We still won't get it until 11/2 even though in my case it is only around 200 miles away.

    Mine says it's still in ShangHai, China. It says it's on time for delivery on November 2nd though so that's good!

    Funnily enough, it says that my order was sent at 3:00 am, which should have been impossible.

    Not true - I live in NYC and as I said they are being shipped from China. And I got the order in at around 3:06 AM on the 26th.

    Got a shipping notification on my lightning to USB cable I ordered with the iPad. It is shipping UPS and should be here the 1st.

    Nothing on my iPad mini...but track by reference via FedEx works.

    That's interestingI wouldn't think that would be the best way to do it, but Apple is known for being a master of supply chain and logistics so I'm assuming they know the best way to distribute them.

    Still nothing on the tracking by reference on UPS or Fedex. The serial for my iPad mini does show up in my support portal though. My iPhone 5 came in through New York... really hoping it doesn't this time.

    I'm worried about the same thing but I'm not terribly worried considering the packages are coming form the opposite direction. By Friday, the worst of the storm should be over.

    HA! I have a serial number but still not able to see where my iPad Mini is at this point. I will assume, as with my iPhone 5, that it is in Alaska and then it will sit in Louisville for two days.
