Apple depletes launch-day 128GB iPad Pro stocks, the Apple Pencil and the Smart Keyboard ship in 4-5 weeks

A few hours ago, Apple depleted launch-day stocks for the 128GB Apple iPad Pro in both the Wi-Fi only and cellular-enabled variants, and in all color options. At the moment, the Apple Store says that the 128GB iPad Pro models will be ready to ship in 5 to 7 days, although, at some point, Apple handed out estimates of 12 to 15 days.
While the 32GB Wi-Fi only units are still available for in-store pickup, those who really want to roll up their sleeves and get work done on the Apple iPad Pro will probably be better off waiting for the 128GB versions to become available. Like all iOS devices, the iPad Pro doesn't come with expandable storage, and it's hard to believe that 32GB will suffice if you plan on loading a bunch of documents, apps, and videos on the tablet.
Furthermore, it looks like Apple is also facing availability issues related to the two main iPad Pro accessories, the Apple Pencil and the Smart Keyboard. Both are indispensable for productivity-minded work, but both are now estimated to ship in 4 to 5 weeks.
At this moment, it's unknown if Apple launched the iPad Pro with limited stock availability or if customers rushed to get the new slab, but the former appears to be the more probable variant. What do you guys think?

i see apples still copying nintendo's tricks from super mario 2 and zelda holding back inventory to ramp up demand, simple but effective in a way not anymore because there are others to choose from and better still better to get the surface book with up to 1T hard drive its better in everyway only diff is apple mobile os vs full windows 10 os

Why heck would they even release a 32GB model of a supposed laptop replacement device. Are they serious? It's about time Apple start adding expandable storage to their tablets, you've made your billions now actually help us out for a change!

Apple will continue to save every single penny it can as long as it's still running.

Are you special or slow? 1.) That'll never happen because they aren't doing anything illegal. These are called loopholes for a reason. 2.) That would have to happen to every large company including Google, Microsoft, Facebook, etc... 3.) "rebuild the us economy" is a farcical joke now. The US economy is doing very well right now, with unemployment at some of the lowest in its history, especially after the meltdown. So yeah...if you're this mentally challenged, I can see how Trump is your go to candidate.

Lol, they're in it to make money, not to help you out. You need more storage than that? Cough up the dough or buy something else, those are your choices. And as long as people keep choosing to pay the extra for storage, Apple will happily keep selling it to them.

Don't be, they probably only had a few thousand in stock. This is obviously a marketing tactic to create hype.

So Apple always sells out in the millions, but everyone else only has low stock to sell out as a PR stunt? Since that's what most of you say when any comlany other than Apple sells out quickly. Yeah, okay then.

they didnt smurf dont you know anything about pr and sales its basic 101 demand confuse the mise have them run around for the cheese and see if they want more, all respect lost on you, i would not hate apple so much if it was not for the mind games and talking sh t and other companies and taken claims for what others have done and then they said them to court in paid off areas to make sure they win they did not sell out they only are allowed to sell so many aday to keep the mice coming back for cheese

Remember the record breaking iPhone 6s and 6s+ first weekend sales? It doesn't look so rosy now. Apple try whatever they can to create hype. They don't mention any numbers so take with huge bucket load of salt especially if coming from Apple.

It was never rosy and never record breaking, they was down 17 million from last year if you included China in the number from Last year, I..e. Total sold was 30 million if you included China, total sold this year 13 million, thus down big time
