If you ordered your iPad by March 27th with expedited shipping, you should receive your iPad by April 3rd. If you ordered your iPad by March 27th with normal shipping, you should receive your iPad by April 3rd. Wait, what??
I know I'm not the only one. A few weeks back while placing my iPad order, I was tempted by an upgrade at checkout. Expedited shipping. It was just $12 over the purchase price. I didn't have a lot of time to think. After all, I wanted to make sure I nabbed my iPad in the first wave of orders. And I wanted to make sure that I received my iPad on launch day.
So I went with the premium shipping option. What was an extra 12 bucks on top of several hundred? I figured that if Apple was offering me the shipping upgrade, there must be some reason for it.
But ever since, I've been a bit confused. From what Apple has released, the only qualifications for receiving your iPad by this Saturday, April 3rd are that:
1. You pre-ordered by March 27th
2. UPS supports Saturday delivery in your neighborhood
