New iPad Shipping Times Slip From March 19th To 2-3 Weeks


"Ships: 2-3 Weeks" is the new "Delivers On March 16th."

Time, it just keeps on slipping. Just a couple of days after delivery times slipped to March 19th, the average wait time for any new iPad ordered off of is now 2-3 weeks.

Last year, the waiting time slide didn’t end here, and iPad 2 delivery times slipped to greater than a month for quite a while. So if you haven’t ordered a new iPad yet and can’t wait in line for one at launch, you might want to pull out that credit card already.

    I’m from Brazil and I’ll be in New York on March 28. Is there any chance that I can grab one on the Apple Stores? How often the shipments arrive on the Apple Stores? Daily? Thanks.

    Yes, I believe they arrive daily.  12 days should be enough, you’ll be fine.

    I was told my new White 32GB iPad would ship on the 19th and deliver on the 23rd, but today the order status page says ships the 19th but delivers on the 21st. Don’t get that but I am getting it early.
