Today, Apple announced that it sold three million iPads since the launch of the iPad mini and fourth-generation iPad on Friday. The company did not give separate sales numbers for the iPad and iPad mini, which shouldn’t come as a surprise. Usually, Apple doesn’t reveal sales numbers of particular device. Apple did say that the sales of the iPad mini exceeded initial supply though.
Apple today announced it has sold three million iPads in just three days since the launch of its new iPad mini and fourth generation iPad—double the previous first weekend milestone of 1.5 million Wi-Fi only models sold for the third generation iPad in March. The Wi-Fi + Cellular versions of both iPad mini and fourth generation iPad will ship in a few weeks in the US and in many more countries later this year.
“Customers around the world love the new iPad mini and fourth generation iPad,” said Tim Cook, Apple’s CEO. “We set a new launch weekend record and practically sold out of iPad minis. We’re working hard to build more quickly to meet the incredible demand.”
The company also said that while many iPad mini preorders shipped to customers, some are scheduled to be shipped later this month.
