I know that Apple stores receive shipments on Saturdays, so this would mean that they use FedEx. I also received my Apple iPad case on Saturday as well.

They may ship on a saturday, but saturday is not a business day.

They will tell you an estimate to exact date when you order.

It depends on where you live. If you live in a place where FedEx delivers on Saturday, yes. If not, no.

FedEx always delivers on Saturday, but it is a paid service.... much like overnight delivery before 10AM. Apple's standard business shipping doesn't cover Saturday delivery, so I wouldn't expect a delivery over the weekend.

Fed ex does NOT always deliver on Saturdays. Saturday delivery is only available in large cities. We don't have it here.

Well obviously it isn't offered everywhere, thought that was implied. Either way, the standard Apple shipping wouldn't cover it even if they did offer it everywhere.

Wrong. As I said earlier, it depends on if FedEx delivers on Saturday in your area. If they do it counts, if the don't it doesn't.

I had "standard shipping" and mine was delived on Saturday. I live in Manhattan though where they obviously have saturday delivery.
