4th Gen iPads With LTE Now Arriving at Apple Retail Stores

9to5Mac is reporting that Apple Retail Stores are taking delivery of new fourth-generation iPad models with LTE cellular (though not the iPad mini), but they have not begun sales of them yet.

Apple has begun stocking its U.S.-based retail stores with LTE versions of the fourth-generation iPad. The product is not on sale yet, but they could go on sale at anytime. Stores have been instructed to wait until word from corporate comes through to begin sales.
Cellular-capable iPad mini and 4th-gen iPad orders are expected to be delivered to US customers beginning on Thursday and Friday of this week, and it's likely that retail store sales of cellular-capable fourth-generation iPads and iPad mini's will begin on Friday. Recently, Apple has generally launched iOS products on Fridays.

I Apple would rather pay 22M to be licensed to use the fancy clock app design on ipad than add GPS to make it more cost effective. So do they really care about the consumers?


So, what point are you making with the clock? The clock deal was a settlement, meaning Apple owed the clock owner for prior use. Considering the clock is on millions of devices, $21 mil was a small price to pay for past and future use. The clock has no impact on the GPS.

I'm making a wild guess that they won't sell them from the stores before the first pre-orders hit the doorsteps.

They cared enough to use a $22 million dollar fancy clock design. :D

Relax, folks. He was only asking about iTunes 11, you don't need to jump down his throat.

One great thing with iTunes 11 is the play next option. Allowing you to queue up songs without needing to make playlists.
