For those that pre-ordered Apple’s new iPad Air 2 and iPad mini 3, Apple has now started shipping the devices with an expected delivery date of Oct. 22 or Oct. 23 quoted to several 9to5Mac readers who pre-ordered on day one. Others have been quoted a delivery date of between Oct. 22-27.

Apple officially kicked off pre-orders of the devices last Friday and said it would begin shipping the two new iPads sometime this week. Apple’s carrier partners are also expected to start selling the new iPads in stores and online over the coming week with official announcements already made by AT&T, Sprint, and T-Mobile.

Apple’s website currently lists all models of the new iPad Air 2 and iPad mini 3 as shipping within 2-4 business days.
