Apple iPad UK Shipping Dates for new Pre-orders Changed

If you pre-ordered an Apple iPad in the UK on May 10 or 11 then you’ll still be getting your iPad on May 28 (this coming Friday). For those who pre-ordered after that, the date changed to June 7. It appears that Apple has run out of those pre-orders now and have put a more generic shipping date for all those pre-ordering today and onwards to just June.

This indicates pre-orders have been selling very well and that Apple [AAPL] is now waiting for more stock to be produced, or that they might be holding some back for store launches that will also happen next week.

If you still want to get hold of an Apple iPad this coming Friday then the only way now will be to queue up (possibly over night) outside the closest Apple store to you.

The change of date is across all models of the Apple iPad from the 16GB WiFi up to the 64GB WiFi+3G models.

A quick check of other Apple stores around the world shows that other stores have also switched to a date of June although they could have been like that for more than just today. I’ve only kept tabs on the UK store that changed just this morning. Stores we checked included France, Canada, UK, Germany and Australia.

    i think apple are holding stocks to keep their demand high. its just that they are delaying the orders for them to get more issues.
