iPad Mini Wi-Fi + Cellular Slated To Start Shipping In Five Days, Arrive November 16th [Updated]

iPad Mini Wi-Fi + Cellular Slated To Start Shipping In Five Days, Arrive November 16th [Updated]

We’re starting to hear reports that people who preordered the iPad Mini with Wi-Fi + Cellular are having their shipping notifications updated, alerting them of a November 21 November 16 delivery date, with shipping to start in the next five business days.

The Apple Store official preorder page still says that the iPad mini Wi-Fi + Cellular will become available for shipping in mid-November, so these reports would seem to line up with Apple’s own promises on the matter. We’ll let you know when we hear more.

Update: Some of our readers are reporting delivery dates starting next Friday, the 16th:

If true, this would line up with our prediction that iTunes 11 will ship by the 16th. The iPad mini currently does not report as anything besides a regular iPad when plugged into iTunes, which isn’t very Apple-like: it makes sense that a new version of iTunes directly supporting the iPad mini would ship soon.
