Online iPad Air 2, iPad mini 3 Pre-Orders Now Live in Canada


You can now pre-order the iPad Air 2 and iPad mini 3 from Apple’s online store. While many thought Apple would have pre-orders kick off just past midnight PDT like last year for the iPad Air, that didn’t happen.

The Apple online store went offline early this morning, signalling pre-orders were coming soon after and now they are live.

The iPad Air 2 starts at $549 CDN for the entry 16GB Wi-Fi model, while the base Wi-Fi iPad mini 3 starts at $439.

Of course, you can also place your pre-order via the Apple Store iOS app as well. Let us know what iPad model you are going to pre-order today. Both entry models note they will ship in 2-4 business days, in time for next week’s launch on Friday, October 24.

    Just ordered a 64GB Gold iPad air 2 with the Red smart cover:)

  • Nice!

  • Salinger

    I have a 3rd gen iPad. I was all prepared to upgrade to the new mini until yesterday’s keynote revealed that it really isn’t a new mini, it’s last year’s mini. …and 32GB isn’t enough storage for me anyway.

    For the extra $100, I think I may as well go with the air 2 and get the new specs.

    Had there been any mention at all of the 12″ for next year?

  • Glenn Axl

  • Markee

    My order just said shipping 2-4 business days arriving Oct 30 – Nov 3. Am I better off to buy Friday in Store on the 24th? U mentioned it should arrive by the 24th

    Ordered an Air 2 64g LTE in grey and a black smart case. Same shipping info as everyone else.

  • Depends on what’s convenient for you. It should arrive on launch day, like the iPhone 6 Plus and my iPad Air last year.

  • Darrin

    I ordered at 8:38. Was up since midnight PST thinking I could order then. My order says 2-4 business days to ship but arriving Oct 29-31? Like WTF? I am hoping the shipping date will be adjusted next week to Friday Oct 24. Most likely the iPad Air 2s are sitting in a warehouse in Ontario ready to be shipped overnight next Thursday/Friday
