If you want to be the owner of the new iPad mini, to be the first one to lay your hands on this new apple invention then here is good news for all Apple fans.
Instead of having to wait the two-week delivery time Apple is currently quoting, those interested in buying the 7.9-inch tablet now have the chance to reserve one through the Online Apple Store each night starting at 10 p.m. The reservation system, aimed at customers looking to be the proud owners of iPad mini as soon as possible, has been used before with other major Apple launches.
It is unclear how many units are allotted to online reservations, and stock at each Apple Store undoubtedly fluctuates, however interested consumers can visit the Online Apple Store to check availability starting at 10 p.m. local time.
To use the system, customers need to go through the steps of placing an online order, but choose the “Pick up” option at checkout instead of “Ship.” Inventory is updated nightly. Apple is known for its best customer service and they try their best to keep the fans happy.
With all preorder and launch day units sold out, one analyst believes Apple will have shipped 8,50,000 iPad mini units in its first week of availability.
Apple unveiled the mid-size iPad at a special event in October, with preorders for the device selling out within hours. The tablet officially hit stores on Friday 2nd Nov in 34 countries as part of Apple’s largest product roll-out ever.
