Apple has begun shipping the LTE version of the iPad mini to customers who have pre-ordered. Yesterday, we noted that Apple began shipping the LTE model of the fourth-generation iPad. Like the fourth-generation models, Apple is now telling some customers that their shipped iPad minis will arrive on Friday, November 16th.

However, a check at the tracking data for one of our reader’s iPad mini LTE orders shows a delivery date of Thursday, November 15th. This is nearly a week earlier than the November 21st date that Apple had been promising many who pre-ordered the LTE iPad mini.

Update: Some readers are reporting that their 11/15 deliveries have been moved back to the 16th.
