The worldwide release date has now been set back to 10th May 2010.
The reasoning for the delay, Apple says, was the overwhelming demand for the iPad in the USA. The company claim that they sold nearly 500,000 iPads in its first week of release.
As far as the United Kingdom goes, the companies O2, orange and Vodafone are hastily preparing price plans for the iPad.
In the United States, many users have complained that they cannot connect. Apple then put out a fix for the problem.
News of the delay is thought not to work in Apples favour. The delay may give other manufacturers a lead in with their own product.
