Apple on top of iPad 2 demand at last

Cupertino sorts backlog months after launch

Supply of Apple's slate finally in line with demand.

The iPad 2 might have been on shelves for four months, but the Cupertino company has only now got on top of a vast backlog of orders. Punters who want the best-selling slates now only need to wait between one and three days for one to ship from Apple’s online store.

It was only a fortnight ago that Apple was able to bring an end to shipping times of up to two weeks. Even then users were having to wait five days to get their hands on their new purchase.

The wait has been put down to extremely high demand, coupled with parts shortages owing to the Japanese earthquake and tsunami earlier this year.

Is this all you need to convince you its time to stump for an iPad 2? Or are you waiting to see if Apple rolls out a new version, as rumoured, later this year? Tell us now over on our Facebook and Twitter pages.
