Want to be one of the first people to latch onto a lightweight, streamlined iPad Air? Apple will be opening its stores at 8 AM local time on November 1 for those who want to pick up the latest version of the popular tablet.
While the start of online sales has not been announced, it's anticipated that Apple will follow the script used by the recent iPhone 5s launch, where online sales began at 12:01 AM Pacific Time. Also following the sales model of the iPhone 5s, Apple is not taking pre-orders online. For past iPads, buyers could pre-order online for home or office delivery on the day of launch.
If you're holding out for the Retina display iPad mini, you'll have to wait until later in November.
