iPad mini delivery orders targeted to ship as soon as November 15

updated 10:55 am EST, Wed November 13, 2013

Pickups already taking place at some stores

Some delivery orders of the Retina iPad mini are already en route, buyers say. In the UK, Apple notifications mention some deliveries shipping as soon as Friday, November 15. Day-one US orders are meanwhile shipping anywhere between November 18th and the 21st.

The times are consistent with Apple's official windows, typically either 1 to 3 days or 5 to 10 days, but in some cases may be earlier than expected. Businesses like Apple will, however, often deliberately overestimate shipping times in order to avoid customer frustration.

Personal Pickup orders have in some instances been claimable since yesterday, when the new Mini went on sale. Many Apple Stores are still lacking in-store stock though, making Pickup no faster than having an iPad shipped.

    I ordered my Mini on Tuesday 11/12 in the afternoon and it shipped today from Shenzhen. Estimated delivery to my rural Midwestern town is Tuesday 11/19.

    I was at our local Apple Store yesterday for another matter, and they hadn't received any yet.
