Apple ups iPad Mini shipment orders by 2 million

Thu, Dec 20, 2012


More evidence that Apple remains in the midst of a blowout and perhaps record-setting quarter.

Apple has recently increased its iPad mini orders from eight million units to 10 million due to strong sales worldwide, and the volume may reach 12 million units in total, according to sources from the upstream supply chain.

Apple originally estimated shipments of 10 million iPad minis for 2012, but due to component shortages caused by weak yields, Apple later adjusted the volume to only 6-8 million units. However, with yield rates improving, iPad mini shipments for the first two months of the fourth quarter have already surpassed eight million units, and should successfully break 10 million for the quarter with a chance to reach 12 million, the sources noted.
