It has emerged today that the LTE iPad mini is to face a delay of up to two weeks, following its release in the US last weekend.
The iPad mini was due to reach UK customers at the end of November, but now Apple has informed waiting pre-order customers via email that they will not receive their devices until at least November 30, with possible dispatch times covering the following 8 days until December 7. The move is also reflected on the UK Apple Store website, which is now estimating shipping times at “2 weeks”.
This is an interesting development following my editorial exploring Apple’s struggle to meet demands in the early days of a product launch. Are any of you waiting for the LTE iPad Mini? Are you upset by these delays? Or are you happy to wait a little while longer?
