Apple Starts Shipping The New iPad

Customers who had pre-ordered the new iPad are already getting shipment notifications from Apple.

AppleInsider reports:

AppleInsider reader Chris D’Aurora submitted a screenshot of an alleged shipment notification from Apple for a pre-order placed on Wednesday.

“We’re happy to let you know that the items below are on their way to you,” the notification read.

Based on the image below, the 16GB iPad (3rd generation) is being shipped through Fed Express and expected to be delivered on March 16th (the new iPad’s release date).

Engadget is also reporting that their readers have received shipment notifications, including some UPS tracking numbers.


Have you pre-ordered the new iPad? Have you seen a change in your order status or received the shipment notification?


One of the best ways to track your pre-order is to use the Apple Store App (App Store link).
