What gives? I’ve been periodically checking the online Apple store’s delivery estimates for iPads to see if there’s any change from the open ended ‘June’ listed against my order.
Today I spot that that the store is now quoting “7-10 business days” for all models which is a fair bit less nebulous than ‘June’ – however my existing queued order hasn’t been updated and still shows the same imprecise shipping date it has for more than a week.
Hopefully this website update means those of us with pre-existing orders can expect their iPad to ship within the lower end of the 7-10 business day timescale as Apple must surely see how unacceptable it’d be for anyone placing orders now to receive their item before those who’ve been kept waiting.
I’ll be looking forward to what Monday brings but Apple may want to reflect on the frustration and bad feeling their botched rollout of the iPad is creating.
