Apple iPad UK delivery delayed again

UK consumers will face a further delay to the shipping of Apple iPads ordered now, after numerous delays in the tablet's release

The shipping date for the iPad in the UK has been put back: previously listed for 28 May, the Apple online store now says the tablets will ship from 7 June.

The delayed shipping date will only apply to new orders, however. Those who have already pre-ordered an iPad can expect to see the device arrive on 28 May as planned.

UK shoppers were initially told they would only have to wait until late March for the device but Apple subsequently moved the release date to late April. The release date was then delayed once again, being pushed back to late May.
