Apple is out of 4th generation iPad pre-orders. This is despite some backlash from consumers who had just purchased the third-generation iPad back in March.
For now, those who pre-order won’t be getting that shipping confirmation until at least a week from when they order. iPad mini orders are two weeks back, according to reports, and those ordered on launch are already on their way.
MacRumors reports that accessory orders, such as SmartCovers for the mini have already been arriving at some homes.
This is often the case with Apple devices, and we have seen times when the product arrives at its destination, but is held over for delivery until the date it’s supposed to be available.
