Apple to Deliver iPad 2 Within a Week Time

Now you can order iPad 2 directly from Apple and get it delivered within a week time., Apple stated on its online store. Previously, customers had to wait for 1-2 weeks not to forget, customer even waited for 5 weeks in the launching week of iPad 2. This surely is an improvement.

Reports say that the announcement came in result of the DigiTime report, which stated that Apple’s iPad 2 market share dropped to 50% from 60-70% just because of the supply shortage.

The shipment times in the US has also improved through Apple’s direct international sales channels, however, there is still time when iPad 2 enters into a balanced supply and demand.

Though Spot shortages still remain through Apple’s indirect sales channels and customers are still limited to 2 units per customer. It is worth mentioning that Apple has been facing a lot of challenges in the production of iPad 2 because it launched just few days before the Japan natural disaster which shut down several of the company’s component suppliers.

But even with a steady supply of the parts needed, building iPad 2’s has been incredibly challenging for Apple’s manufacturing partner Foxconn, Chairman Terry Gou said at a recent investor meeting.

As such, the contract electronics assembler’s profits have lagged behind those of Apple because the devices are “very difficult to make,” he said, adding that his company is continuously learning ways to make the products more efficiently.

Recent reports state that Foxconn has recently implemented measures to assemble iPad more efficiently, so we are expecting a better availability of the device in the future.
