For those that ordered a Smart Cover from Apple.ca last night at midnight, some of the first orders made have shipped. Our order placed last night has shipped along with a UPS tracking number, which isn’t ‘live’ yet.
Last night we also placed an online order for an iPad Air, but ended up cancelling our order this morning over the phone with Apple. Why? Well, the website stated ‘shipping within 24 hours’ but in reality, delivery estimates pegged a date of November 12 for a 16GB Wi-Fi model. Of course this date is probably an exaggerated estimate from Apple, but this morning our local Future Shop had plenty of stock available on hand.
Most Apple resellers we spoke with did not receive any Smart Cover shipments today. Expect those to arrive later.
