New Apple TV orders begin shipping, could arrive early

By , Mar 14, 2012

If you pre-ordered the 1080p Apple TV that Apple introduced a week ago, you’ll be happy to hear that the set-top box has begun shipping. Many customers have gotten the confirmation email from Apple, saying the third-generation Apple TV is on its way to their doorstep.

Apple has told customers that the 1080p Apple TV will arrive on Friday, however, according to FedEx’s systems it says the new Apple TV will land at customer’s doorsteps a day early, as noted by AppleInsider…

The third-generation Apple TV is a slight upgrade from its prodeccesor, featuring the ability to stream 1080p video. The 1080p Apple TV features a custom single-core A5 processor, presumably manufactured by Samsung — but we’ll have to wait for tear downs to get confirmation.

Customers that pre-ordered early will be the only ones getting the new Apple TV Thursday (or Friday). However, you could get lucky by grabbing one in-store Friday at 8am. The new Apple TV’s shipping time has been slipping over the last week for customers who haven’t ordered yet.

Did you pre-order the 1080p Apple TV? Has it shipped yet?

    I ordered mine the day it was announced. And I am FedEx courier so I plan on getting mine early. Weve been instructed that if we get any Ipads in tomorrow, not deliver them until Friday. I may let a few slip through though ;)
