Retina iPad mini Gets In-Store Pickup in Canada, But Currently “Unavailable”

Last night Apple quietly launched online sales of the Retina iPad mini and questions remained whether stores would carry them today. Some of you have checked at stores, such as the Eaton Centre location in Toronot but no stock is available; the new iPad mini looks to be online only at this time.

The Richmond Centre Apple Store we called said they “don’t have any information about the iPad mini” and asked us to check back tomorrow afternoon. Apple’s online chat told us some retail stores are “currently out of stock”.

Apple however, has initiated its Reserve and Pick Up option for Canada as well, despite primarily noting the feature for the USA in this morning’s press release:

iPad mini with Retina display is available to order through the Apple Online Store ( to ship or through Personal Pickup at Apple’s retail stores

However, this landing page shows Reserve and Pick Up is setup but currently showing as “Unavailable” (thanks @larrylarry). You can select a retail location but that’s about it:

Looks like Canada gets some love this time with Reserve and Pick Up for the Retina iPad mini. Online shipping estimates have stayed the same as of last night’s midnight launch, with Wi-Fi models at 1-3 days and cellular versions at 5-10 days.

Let us know if you’ve ordered your Retina iPad mini!
