Apple took the wraps off its fourth-generation iPad (iPad 4) on Oct. 23, and the Wi-Fi only version of the revamped iPad 4 hit the shelves on Nov.2. Previously, reports indicated that the Wi-Fi and cellular version of the fourth-generation iPads will start making its way to users in mid-November and now speculations suggest that Apple stores have started to stock the latest tablets but are waiting for a go-ahead to release them to iFans.

"Apple has begun stocking its U.S.-based retail stores with LTE versions of the fourth-generation iPad. The product is not on sale yet, but they could go on sale at anytime. Stores have been instructed to wait until word from corporate comes through to begin sales. A launch date is yet to be communicated, but with many LTE iPad deliveries set for this Friday, we would say that a Friday launch at Apple stores for LTE iPads is a strong possibility," reported 9to5mac.

Previous iterations of the iPad have received high popularity amongst tablet enthusiasts and the fourth-generation iPad is no different. The regular-sized 9.7-inch iPads have always given stiff competition to rival tablets of similar size. Now tablets in the 7-inch tablet sector will also face firm rivalry with the launch of the new 7.9-inch iPad mini.

MacRumors reports that customers who have pre-ordered the fourth-generation Wi-Fi and cellular iPads are expected to get delivery on the Friday, Nov. 16. If pre-ordered iPads can make their way to the customers on Nov. 16, then presumably the Apple stores may also start selling the latest iPads on the same date.

The Wi-Fi and cellular version of the iPad 4 has a starting price tag of $629 (16GB).

Have you pre-ordered the fourth-generation iPad? When do you expect to get the delivery of your latest tablet?
