    Ordered an Ipad on Apple Philippines official online store
    Why does it take so long to deliver, it will take 28 days to deliver?
    Or is there a chance that it will be delivered earlier and 28 days is just the maximum?

    And Why is it shipping from Singapore?
    But even then it should just take a week to ship from Singapore.

    Upon use of tracking.
    Its been stuck in Singapore for almost a week now. What is going on?

    Was able to order the first iPad mini from Apple Online Store Philippines when I was still living in the PH, it took around 3 weeks for the item to be delivered to me in Bacolod City (Visayas). Even now, all orders made are shipped out from Singapore.

    What's weird is even here in Thailand where we have an Apple Store at Icon Siam, the Apple Pencil I ordered online was still shipped out from Singapor.

    Apple Singapore handles all of South East Asia I think. Even local resellers order from Apple Singapore.

    Wish there was a Philippine-specific FAQ. Questions like these get asked frequently enough to necessitate it.

    Package Arrived 10 days early! Ordered on Aug 17 and September 12 was supposed delivery date

    With a heart wrenching moment! While I was tracking my package. When it first landed in Manila then was probably mistakenly sent to Hong kong. Crazy moment!

    Luckily somebody must have noticed the mistake and sent the package back, like immediately.

    So I'm assuming it had to be checked and cleared by Philippines Customs twice.
