iPad Pro Supply Shortage; iPad Pro 2 May Soon Be Possible
iPad Pro seems to have a supply shortage, especially on Apple's online store. With reports that the giant tech will launch three new iPad models next month, some Apple users believe that iPad Pro 2 may soon be released.
The 12.9 inch tablet on Apple's online store has an estimated two to three weeks of arrival for buyers in Australia, Canada, France, Japan, United Kingdom and even United States. Rumors sparked about the iPad Pro shortage since the shipping estimate as of last week was only one to two weeks.
For Apple's in-store pick up for the 12.9 inch iPad Pro tablet has a window only from March 3 to 6. This goes for stores in Toronto, Canada and London. In the United States, stores in New York and San Francisco like AT&T, Best Buy and Verizon are affected by this limitation.
According to MacRumors, CEO Tim Cook said that Apple has underestimate iPad demand this quarter. Apparently, there was an issue with one of the giant tech's suppliers. He does not expect that that the iPad Pro supply shortage be totally resolved this quarter. But he has some good news. "We've got some exciting things coming on iPad and I'm optimistic about where things are headed," he said.
Neil Cybart, an Apple analyst, agrees with Tim Cook's announcement about the company having trouble with their suppliers. It can be recalled that the Apple Watch Series 2 and Airpods have troubles as well by long shipping estimates. The 12.9 inch iPad Pro seems to be an addition to the growing list.
Valuewalk reports that as early as March, or as late as second half of this year, Apple is rumoured to release the 10.5 inch iPad Pro 2, which is slimmer than the earlier version. The release of nine inch and 12.9 inch iPad Pro models with faster A10X processors is also expected.
