    Anyone order an iPad 3 or something similar from Apple lately?
    Just wondering what method of shipment they use (UPS, FedEx) and if it needs to be signed for?

    Would suck if they try to deliver requiring signature and I'm not home....being a Friday delivery I wouldn't get it until at least Monday.
    Thanks....

    I've had to sign for anything I've ordered from Apple...iPad 3, iPhone 5, even the lightning adapter which came separately from the phone. When my son was waiting on his 5, he left signed instructions for the delivery driver to toss it over the gate into the backyard. He did.

    Go up on their website....they have some options there you can select regarding your delivery (sign to leave with neighbor, etc.).

    I'm also interested in how apple delivers. It will help me predict the time. If its UPS it's morning, FedEx is afternoon, if it's USPS I can probably just report it damaged now and save some time.

    My Apple deliveries come via UPS. I don't know if that applies everywhere.

    I think they use FedEx when possible.


    FedEx use other carriers for final shipment on occasion.

    Now that there is darn good humor............to bad it's completely true.
    I would think Apple knows better than that.

    Thanks guys for your replies......checking with the shippers website is a great idea.
    Hopefully I get shipping information tomorrow.

    The unfortunate thing is that the humor would work in Canada and the UK too. I don't think any of the national postal services have ever come to terms with actually having to do their job. FedEx, TNT and UPS would have wiped them out years ago if they didn't retain the monopoly of letter post.

    Are you telling me that iPads aren't delivered by fairies? I'm going to keep believing that till proven otherwise.
