I ordered the new iPad (3) wifi only, 16 GB, my first ever iPad off the Apple website and chose the free shipping. I've been watching the updates from the UPS website and see it will be delivered to my house by the end of the day Friday the 16th. Generally when I receive any shipments from UPS, it is after 5pm though I am not always home then. My question is, using the free shipping option from Apple, anyone here have any idea if they insist someone sign for such an expensive item or do they leave it on the porch if no one is home? I ordered an iPad smart cover at the same time but they shipped it from a different location and I received it on Thursday, from FedEx instead of UPS and they just left it on my porch. I didn't mind since it is a lot cheaper than the new iPad. I am really excited to receive my first iPad and without standing in line!
