iPad Pre-Orders Open, Initial 16 GB White iPad mini Stock Already Sold Out
As expected and as mentioned previously, Apple began accepting pre-orders for the iPad mini and the iPad 4 via their online store at midnight Pacific Time. Initial stock usually gets sold out quickly. Did you pre-order one of the new iPads? If so, share which color, what capacity, and which carrier you got your model in in the comments below.
As per the usual with products being sold out, the 16 GB white iPad mini (Wi-Fi only) sold out in 17 minutes (in the U.S.). The current wait period for this make and model is already set back to a 2 week delay. As of the time of writing this, the black iteration of the same model is still available for a November 2 shipping date.
The Wi-Fi models come out on November 2nd with cellular models hitting the shelves a couple of weeks after. Apple will of course be offering the iPad mini in retail stores on launch day as well so if you still want a white iPad mini, you might have some luck hitting the stores. We have no idea what the lines might be like but if previous Apple launches are any indication, you might want to get on that line sooner rather than later.
