New iPad Shipping Times Dramatically Improve
Shipping times for the new iPad have improved markedly in recent days.
Shortly after the third-generation Apple tablet was unveiled and launched last month, lagging shipping times began to reflect the crushing consumer demand placed on the device. By the end of March, typical online orders were coming with two-week shipping estimates.
Corresponding with recent reports that new iPad production has picked up significantly in recent weeks, shipping times for the tablet have since fallen back to the 5-7 day range. And that's not bad considering demand hasn't waned much, if at all.
In fact, the new iPad has been expanding rapidly around the globe. In addition to arriving in eleven new countries last weekend, today - as of this writing - millions of people are for the first time laying their hands on the iPad in Brunei, Croatia, Cyprus, Dominican Republic, El Salvador, Guatemala, Malaysia, Panama, St Maarten, Uruguay and Venezuela.
Not withstanding the rapid international expansion in recent days, new iPad shipping times are relatively brisk. And thanks to production rolling along like a well-oiled machine, they are expected to remain so for the foreseeable future.
