If you’re looking to pre-order an iPad today, you’ll notice that shipping dates have been pushed back to April 12th. What’s more, Apple has removed the option to pick up your iPad in-store. It appears Apple simply can’t supply the demand for the first week of iPads, writes 9to5Mac, suggesting high demand for the device.
How many iPads have been sold so far? Some estimates say around half a million – a higher demand than many expected.
If you’ve pre-ordered an iPad for in-store pickup, you’ll still be able to get that between 9am and 3pm next Saturday. After 3pm, Apple stores will sell all the iPads they have on a first come, first serve basis, writes Fortune.
