Canadians have started to receive their iPad mini shipment notifications that include a UPS tracking number. Pre-orders took place on Friday, October 26th and the notifications below note they left Apple on the 28th.
Although shipment notifications note a “receive it” date of November 6th, do note Apple previously posted their iPad mini delivery estimate map that noted if you are in Delivery Zone 1, you should receive your shipment tomorrow.
As with the iPhone 5, tracking updates accelerated in the last 24 hours as packages arrived via a local Canadian destination. The later date is Apple’s way of lowering expectations if there are actual delays, which wouldn’t be surprising given the power of Hurricane Sandy.
Have you received your iPad mini shipment notification? Do remember white models aren’t shipping until mid-November and LTE models around the same time.
Thanks Jonathan and Michael for the emails!
