Having slipped to 2-3 weeks last week, shipping times for the new iPad through Apple’s online store have already eased to just 1-2 weeks.
Shipping times didn’t slip until a day after the device went on sale, but they did reach delays of 2-3 weeks. But from this morning, those in the U.S., the U.K., and other territories are looking at a shipping delay of just 1-2 weeks through Apple’s online store for both the Wi-Fi and 4G + Wi-Fi models.
If you want to get your hands on the device straight away, however, you’ll be better off visiting an Apple retail store, or authorized Apple retailer. Many stores still had stock when the launch day queues has disappeared, and they’ll continue to receive regular deliveries.
