First iPad Air 2 Online Pre-Orders Have Started Shipping to Canada

Share:

Last Friday Apple launched online pre-order for their new iPad Air 2 and iPad mini 3. Those who made orders for the iPad Air 2 have started to receive shipment notifications and UPS tracking numbers, with an expected delivery date of October 30, 2014, which is six days past this week’s upcoming October 24 launch date.

Typically, online pre-orders part of the first wave normally arrive on launch days. It’ll be interesting to see if this order arrives earlier than its estimated date.

Has your iPad Air 2 or iPad mini 3 order shipped yet?

    I got a notification from Apple last night that it had shipped and expected deliver date was October 24. Then I got a notice this morning from UPS that says: “THE SERVICE SELECTED IS NOT AVAILABLE TO THIS DESTINATION ADDRESS. THIS HAS DELAYED DELIVERY. THE SERVICE HAS BEEN CHANGED AND THE DELIVERY IS BEING RESCHEDULED.” I’ve not received an updated date of delivery yet. Still pending.

    Hey Gary, what color and GB did you order?

  • Gold and 16GB. Have not decided whether I’m going to replace my iPad Air yet though!

    What time did you order? I haven’t got any shipment notification yet. I also live in Edmonton.

    In Toronto – Ordered 64gb LTE in space grey a few seconds after pre-orders went live. Still pending shipment :s

  • Micheal

    In Toronto. Ordered 64GB Space Grey LTE seconds after preorder went live. Still “preparing for shipment”

  • DontWannaWaitInVain

    I ordered around 12:15 pm, through education store ($20 less). Originally placed regular order at 9:10 am but after reading somewhere it was discounted thru education store, xcelled it and reordered 3 hours later.

  • Kirk

    Mine is also still preparing for shipment. Toronto 64GB Space Grey LTE. I’m hoping I get mine by launch day. If not Monday, but I’m really hoping friday.

  • Kirk

    On a side note: the website still says 2 to 4 business days for space grey 64GB, it must mean they’ll have plenty for launch day. Here’s hoping..

    Mine Shipped! Expected delivery is 24th (hopefully this remains true πŸ™‚ )

  • Kirk

    Did you just get the email? I know they usually send them in all kinds of hours in the middle of the night!

  • Kirk

    Lol okay nvm I just got my shipment notification too. Expected delivery 24th too. Hope that is correct. πŸ™‚

  • Glenn Axl

    Finally got a shipment notice.

    Delivers 30 Oct, 2014.

    Hopefully it will arrived this week.

  • Gord Smith ?

    128GB Space Grey DELIVERS OCT. 24!!! Cover arrived today.

  • Micheal

    I received the notification just before 10pm on the 21st πŸ™‚

  • Kristina Lavoie

    I had the same notice. It says it’s in Chengdu now. But I’m not sure what the point of pre-ordering is if we have to wait until a week AFTER launch to receive our packages. I too ordered within an hour of the store launching.

  • DontWannaWaitInVain

    Mine has left Chengdu, went to Incheon, Korea and has since departed as of 9:56 pm their time today (almost 14 hours after arriving there). πŸ™

  • DontWannaWaitInVain

    Just checked and as of 12:19 h my pkg is now in Anchorage, AK. Looks like it just may get here by Friday…maybe. πŸ™‚

    Why is mine coming from Ontario while others are having their iPads shipped from China?

    I am in Edmonton and ordered from the Apple store online.

    Apple said it’s expected to deliver on the 24th but UPS said:

    Scheduled Delivery:
    Thursday, 10/23/2014, By End of Day

    Last Location:
    Concord,
    ON,
    Canada,
    Wednesday, 10/22/2014

    I doubt I’ll get it on the 23rd but you never know …

  • Lisa

    Mine says the 23rd but I’m guessing once it gets scanned in locally it will get delayed. But there also isn’t as much hype compared to the iPhones so maybe ….

  • Kristina Lavoie

    Mine is still in Incheon! Damn, how many separate shipments are there?

  • FerrariF1

    I got a shipment notification yesterday and UPS still says this today:

    >>> UPS could not locate the shipment details for your request. Please verify your information and try again later.”

  • DontWannaWaitInVain

    Left Incheon to go to Anchorage, AK. Left Anchorage yesterday afternoon and landed in Louisville, KY early this morning. Left Louisville after 5 this morning (their time). Scheduled for delivery some time today (Oct. 23). Yay!

  • Scott

    my iPad Air 2 64GB Wifi Grey delivered this morning. This thing is INCREDIBLY thin

  • Guest

    I think you’ll get it because mine got delivered this morning.

  • Kristina Lavoie

    Awwww. Mine’s STILL in Korea this morning. Boo. πŸ™ It’s my weekend too, was hoping to have time to play around with it.

  • Kristina Lavoie

    Oo! It left Korea, just now. There’s hope!

  • DontWannaWaitInVain

    As a head’s up, mine was in Calgary. Received an exception notice about it being held (customs) and then cleared. As of 10:00 h it has departed Calgary. Just waiting for it to say “On local truck” and I can let out the breath I’ve been holding.

    I think you’re likely to get yours tomorrow, or the latest, Monday, (all being well).

  • Kristina Lavoie

    Yeah, Monday. That’s what I was afraid of, lol.
