Apple for the first time has been able to come to terms with the demand for its iPad Mini device ever since it was launched three months back. All models of the iPad Mini are being shown as ‘In Stock’, a positive development over the 1-3 business days that it took Apple to ship the device so far. This comes on the back of news from Taiwan that AUO has finally managed to up its production to roll out 1 million panels for the mini iPad. The ready availability of the iPad Mini is expected to provide a further boost to its sales, which have been on the fast track ever since its launch. The mini iPad has seen its sales reach 3 million units during the first launch weekend alone.
In another related development, AUO has stated it is working on the next gen display panel for iPad Mini 2. However, it hasn’t been forthcoming with any further details on this. The company is contracted to supply AH-VA wide-angle panels that goes in the making of the current gen iPad Mini. Its next variant is expected to sport retina display panels though there are a quite a few issues such as those about cost, the overall weight and thickness of the device, and battery life, all of which have to be factored in to create an upgraded device.
