Apple’s latest generation of the iPad is selling like hot cakes. Today, Apple’s online store have changed the shipping duration from a week to 3-5 business days shipping time, which would suggest that the supply of the new iPad is catching up with demand.
The company is now promising that orders of the third-generation iPad in both black and white, in all capacities, and also in the “Wi-Fi + 4G” models are now advertised to ship in less than a week in the U.S. This is the second time in less than a month that the estimated shipping times for the company’s latest generation of the iPad has improved.
A few weeks ago, shippings times were reduced to 5 to 7 days, an improvement from the previous shipments of one to two weeks just a few days after launch.
Last week, during Apple’s earnings call, the company revealed that it had sold 11.8 million iPads in the March quarter. It should be noted that during the three-month span the new iPad was only available for a few weeks. Tim Cook also revealed that the company was facing supply constraints with the new iPad.
