How (or where) does Best Buy ship the iPad pre-orders? Is it directly from Apple?

I've just pre-ordered the new iPad Pro and I received an e-mail saying the fulfillment date is May 21st.

 

Does this ship directly from Apple?  Is the shipping method (speed) the same if I ordered from Apple directly?

 

Apple sometimes ships directly from China (I think) and I'm wondering if ordering from Best Buy instead of Apple will cause it to arrive/ship slower/later.

If you purchased it from Best Buy then it should ship to you from a Best Buy distribution center. 

 

Personally for something as expensive as an iPad I would always opt for in store pick up. 

I am not an employee of Best Buy and all opinions left on this forum are my own. Please leave Kudo’s if you like a post or click Accept as Solution if a post answers your query.

Thanks for the reply.  In-store pickup is not an option for the new iPad so it must be shipped.

 

Hopefully a BBY employee with more information can confirm the shipping procedure too.

Vendors all around the United States help fulfill orders. You may receive an item from a local store in your area, or you may receive it direct from the manufacturer. It could come from a warehouse, etc.

 

Best Buy determines the best way to fulfill an item based on local inventory so they  can get you the item as quickly as possible.
