Things are looking up if you’re looking to buy a new iPad online. Shipping times for all models at the Apple online store are down to 1-2 weeks (from 2-3 weeks just a few days ago), and the option to pickup at a local Apple store is active again.
You can use a store locator to find your closest local store and arrange to have your new iPad delivered there. This would’ve been a whole lot more handy to have available when pre-orders first started, but it’s still good to see now.
With shipping times coming down and Apple’s announcement on Monday that they had sales of 3 million new iPads in its first three days on the market, it seems pretty clear that all those rumors of early, ramped-up production for the 2012 iPad are proving accurate.
