Apple Delays International iPad Orders Due to Short Supply

Apple have announced today that iPads are in short supply (again), and that deliveries of International orders made from today onwards will slip to the 7th of June.

If you have already ordered yours however, then have no fear, it will arrive on the 28th of May as promised.

When Apple spoke to UK tech-blog Pocket Lint about this they said that “Demand for [the] iPad has been off the charts. We are working hard to get iPads into customers hands as quickly as possible”

The shortage of iPads is not just affecting International Orders either. Delivery times in the US are currently slated at 7-10 business days. Apparently iPads are out of stock in some Apple stores in the US too, with the company’s flagship store on 5th Avenue in New York turning people away empty handed.

The iPad shortage doesn’t seem to be something that will go away soon. So if you want one, order now, and get in line is our advice.

Have you ordered your iPad yet? Do you have a confirmed delivery date? Let us know in the comments.

    I'm all about getting the new things. I for one, really like apple's products. But here is the deal apple. don't advertise something that you don't have, or at least put it out in advertising that you don't need to bother going to an apple store because we don't have anything to sell you! It wasted my time and gave me a bitter taste of the poor customer service that has become more common place at apple. It has also taken money out of your pockets, for when your finally throwing away the last of this version of the Ipad. One you could have sold to me. I'll not be I'll no longer be one of the eager masses in line to gobble it up. Apple get your head outta your ass! Your stuff is good but not worth the wasted trip to the store.
