All that may soon change for the better though with Apple's bestselling new iPad. It has been over a month since its launch, and Apple finally has made a definite sign that its shipping times are to improve drastically.
If you visit the official Apple site for ordering the new iPad, the shipping time displayed is just 5-7 days now. It's regardless of which model you buy, so you don't need to worry about the color, 4G LTE capabilities, and storage capacities, as Apple will ship absolutely any model of the new iPad to you in less than a week. This means that there's no more need for you to worry about iPad stock inventory for a particular model.
The official shipping times for the new iPad had reduced to between a week and a couple of weeks recently, and Apple has improved on that even further. Despite its struggles to cope up with overwhelming demand, Apple had managed to sell an incredible 3 million units in the launching weekend of the new iPad last month.
The irony here is that primary problem with the new iPad (in terms of shipping times, at least) has been what's been its biggest selling point - the gorgeous 9.7 inch Retina display. The screens were being manufactured by Samsung, LG and Sharp, but the latter two had been struggling to produce them till now.
