Apple iPad Pro orders open, with limited stock available in retail stores today
Today Apple opens the next big chapter in the story of its tablet lineup, and as we learned back on Monday, sales of the 12.9-inch iPad Pro are finally underway. Head on over to Apple’s website and you can get your order in now – do so and it won’t be long before you have your hands on the actual hardware, with orders slated to start arriving this Friday. “Two whole days to get my hands on an iPad Pro?” you ask, “But I’ve waited so long already!” There, there; you’ll get your fix soon enough. But if waiting simply isn’t an option, you’ve still got a chance to fire up Apple’s giant-sized tablet for the first time today – all depending on your luck with Apple’s retail stores.
Shoppers are already reporting that the Apple Store app is giving them the option to pick up their iPad Pro orders in the company’s stores today. Not every store’s necessarily going to have them, and stocks may understandably be limited, but if the stars are in alignment, you may just be able to swing by over your lunch break and be ready to start using your new iPad Pro this afternoon.
The presence of these in Apple’s stores also means you’ve got the chance of just walking in and picking one up, though if you’re really intent on bringing one home, that could prove to be a real gamble; you’d be much wiser to consult the app first and formally arrange for in-store pickup, if only to see what your options really are.
Finally, this in-store availability appears to be US-only, so Apple fans abroad will just have to wait a little longer.
