    Yes, definitely restore it, just in case the worst happens when in transit back to Apple.

    Well, call me paranoid, but I usually backup/sync my iPad, then I go into the mobilesync / backups folder and rename the backup folder (usually just putting the date after the end of the serial number). Then I connect the iPad again and let it do a another complete backup. That way I know I have 2 full backups in case anything happens. The last thing I want to do is lose all of my app settings etc.

    I ordered on 3/7 at around 8:00 pm --- white 16GB wifi engraved. Received shipping notice for 3/16 delivery. Just checked again and device is in Anchorage.......getting closer! :D. I currently have the first generation iPad and am happy for the upgrades.

    i'm really confused as to why when i ordered my ipad 3 at 12.40am on the 8th someone else in uk who ordered the same ipad at 6am is getting there's delivered by the 16th and mines not being shipped till between the 16th to 19th wondering if ordering the apple tv has delayed it :( would of ordered them separately if id realized .anyone else order the apple tv and getting a later shipping day ? iv always managed to get my apple stuff on launch day before and i feel like a big kid sulking to think iv got to wait a extra week lol

    i don't have a estimated arrival date either which is odd :( might end up going in store on launch day then canceling my order like i did last year

    just called apple and they have no explanation as to why i have to wait longer than other people and were really unhelpful :( i just have to wait and see when it comes basically

    It could be a different model of iPad, or different color. The white iPads went out of stock early, and I imagine the 32Gb models went first.

    I ordered the 32gb black WiFi+4G at around 9am on 3/9. I didn't get the order confirmation email until this morning, which I had an Apple rep resend for me. She did say that my order was fine and I should be getting it on Friday. Can't wait!

    Hello, new to the site, ordered my iPad on launch day, just received my email saying my iPad has shipped. I also received my FedEx tracking number! I'm so excited. I ordered a Black, 16G WiFi+4G LTE iPad this time around. I had a 16G Black WiFi only iPad (first generation), and just recently sold my 32G Black WiFi only iPad (second generation) on Craigslist the Wednesday before launch day for $450 cash. :)
