    4th Gen iPad Now Shipping In One Week As Initial Stock Sells Out


    It stuck around for more than four days, but the initial supply of Apple’s fourth-generation iPad has now sold out, causing shipping delays for the device to increase to one week across the U.S. and international stores. The delay applies to both the black and white models, regardless of which storage option you choose.

    It means that any pre-orders placed from now on will be shipped one week later than originally expected, which means you probably won’t received the device until the middle or the end of next week — as opposed to launch day this Friday, November 2.

    You may find a third-party retailer that’s still accepting pre-orders for launch day delivery, but unfortunately only Apple can promise you’ll get one on the day. The only way to guarantee a new iPad now, then, is to visit your local Apple store on launch day.

    If it’s taken four days for initial stock to sell out online, something tells me the device won’t be too difficult to get hold of. You certainly shouldn’t expect to see the rush the iPhone 5 has generated, but there will be queues due to the iPad mini.

    Apple already catches up with fourth-gen iPad demand, now ‘in stock’



    Last time we checked in, the new fourth-generation iPad with Retina display was listed as shipping in “3-5 business days” from Apple’s U.S. website. That was down from the estimated one-week shipping time Apple had listed for the device in the weeks leading up to the device’ official Nov. 2 launch alongside the iPad mini. Since then, Apple announced it sold 3 million new iPads (iPad 4 and iPad mini) over the first three days that the devices were on sale. While CEO Tim Cook confirmed Apple is “practically sold out of iPad minis,” it appears it has now caught up with supply/demand for the iPad 4. At least Apple’ s U.S. and Canadian online stores now list all Wi-Fi models of the iPad 4 as “in stock”, meaning Apple has supply ready to ship immediately. LTE models are still expected to roll out over the next couple weeks.

    This comes a week after Apple sold out of initial iPad 4 supplies on its website. Apple did, however, begin allowing personal in-store pick-ups for new iPads ordered after 10 p.m.

    It’s unclear what percentage of the 3 million iPads Apple sold were made up of iPad mini and iPad 4 models, but it looks like Apple is having a much easier time with supplies of iPad 4. It remains to be seen whether Apple can catch up with iPad mini demand leading into the holidays. Apple’s website still currently lists the device as available in “2 weeks”, with online stores in different countries listing the LTE models as available in mid- to late November. There is no word when Apple Stores will get additional supplies, but many we checked with have remained sold out since launch day.


    Perhaps low sales of iPad 4 compared to iPad mini can be attributed to lack of rumors leading up to the device’s launch?

    4th Gen iPads With LTE Now Arriving at Apple Retail Stores




    9to5Mac is reporting that Apple Retail Stores are taking delivery of new fourth-generation iPad models with LTE cellular (though not the iPad mini), but they have not begun sales of them yet.

    Cellular-capable iPad mini and 4th-gen iPad orders are expected to be delivered to US customers beginning on Thursday and Friday of this week, and it's likely that retail store sales of cellular-capable fourth-generation iPads and iPad mini's will begin on Friday. Recently, Apple has generally launched iOS products on Fridays.
