iPad 2 Shipping Times Improved: Now 1-3 Days
Since the release of the Apple iPad 2 four months ago, the demand for this device has been skyrocketing out of the clouds. For the longest time, shipping times ranged from weeks to even months. Finally in middle July
, Apple has caught up with the demand and is offering one to three day shipping for all iPad devices.
Over a period of just a week, Apple improved from last week's three to five days shipping times all the way to the most minimal shipping times possible. Shortly after the release in March, as mentioned above, Apple stated that it could take up to month to receive the iPad 2 via online purchase from the Apple website. Times dropped down to two weeks in March and continued this pattern all the way into July.
In spite of this rapid change, analysts believe that this improvement is not a result of a decline in demand
- but an improvement on supply constraints.
