The fine print reads “Supplies may be limited and are available on a first-come, first-served basis.” This proved true according to the Pacific Centre Apple Store we spoke with in Vancouver, as yesterday they sold out of their initial iPad Air 2 stock but did have iPad mini 3 units available.

Meanwhile, reader Ron (from Hamilton, ON) has shared an image of his day one online pre-order iPad Air 2 arriving today:

Ipad air 2 arrived

Apple’s official iPad Air 2 and iPad mini 3 launch is slated for tomorrow. Let us know if you’ve managed to get your hands on these new iPads yet!


  • Gord Smith ?

    Mine has been on a UPS truck since 7:30am. Come on already!

  • Kirk

    I received mine two hours ago! 64GB space grey wifi + LTE. iPad Air 2. Toronto.

  • I’m wondering if there going to be a reserve and pick site like the iPhone 6. That was nice 🙂

  • Darrin

    Just got a 128G cellular at the Coquitlam store!!

  • Ron

    Ron from Toronto also received his pre-ordered Air2 today.

  • Scott

    Received mine this morning. 64GB Wifi, Montreal

  • Lonetreejim

    Got my 128 GB Gold around noon.

    Curiously, had iOS 8.1 installed already.

    I wonder how they do that on 10M iPads in 4 days!

  • It’s magical and only Apple could do something this revolutionary.

  • Anon

    Probably because 8.1 hit golden master RTM a week or so before it’s release.

  • Rick

    Mine says delivery on Tuesday! I ordered 1/2 hour after they went live online. Air2 64g LTE grey. Damn! I ordered the case too. It arrived today (one day early), but it says it’s for an iPad air, not air 2. I’m not feeling very happy right now.

  • Lonetreejim

    Look for small “second generation” wording on the back.

    Weirded me out for a minute too.

  • Lonetreejim

    Well, yeah but 10M shrink wrapped iPads in a warehouse would be tough to upgrade.

    Maybe they just wrapped them all on Tuesday.
