FedEx & UPS Warn NY, NJ & Other Sandy States Their iPad Minis Might Not Be Delivered Tomorrow

Although Hurricane Sandy passed through the Northeastern United States on Monday, the aftermath is still being felt three days later. Not only is New York City still flooded and thousands still without power and electricity in many states, but FedEx and UPS are still experiencing disruptions to their delivery services.

What does this mean? If you live in Connecticut, Delaware, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, Virginia, Washington, D.C., or West VirginiaJersey, there’s a chance your iPad mini preorder won’t get delivered to you tomorrow. And if you live in New York or New Jersey? It’s pretty much a certainty you won’t get it.

Both FedEx and UPS are reporting interruptions in their operations leading to unavoidable service delays in a number of states in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy.

Right now, though, it’s especially bad in New York and New Jersey, where UPS and FedEx are both saying that they aren’t making any deliveries to the following ZIP codes:

It’s possible that FedEx and UPS will commence delivering later today or tomorrow, but there’s a lot of backlog at this point. If you live in New York or New Jersey, it’s probably unlikely that you’re going to get your iPad mini tomorrow. In other states, the biggest determining factor as to whether or not you’ll get your iPad mini preorder in the mail is probably whether or not you’re already getting mail delivered to you.

    I live in New York (10280) and my UPS tracking page still says tomorrow for expected delivery. BTW – I received UPS packages from Amazon today — so there’s still hope.

    Don’t know where you get this info from but my FedEx tracking page still says tomorrow for estimated delivery by 3PM. However on the top of the website did shown big red warnning words “Superstorm Sandy aftermath is causing service disruptions in the northeast.” That’s all.

    I live in Gettysburg, PA, and according to the Fedex list on their site, there are no service problems for my area for Express service, which is how my iPad mini is coming (overnight standard). This shipping was the free shipping Apple gives you by default. I did not pay extra. In any case, my Fed Ex tracking says it left the regional hub and will be delivered by 4:30 pm tomorrow.

    My house blew-up from leaking gas lines, and the floods washed away the ashes that remained. Gee, I sure hope my iPad mini gets delivered on time…

    Don’t deliver ipad mini’s, deliver gas, lots of gas.
