Tim Cook: “It’s Unclear Whether There Will Be Enough Retina iPad Mini To Meet Demand”
In an Earnings Call when Tim Cook was asked about availability of the new iPad mini with Retina display, he said said that the new iPad will start shipping later in November, he added that it is unclear whether we’ll have enough for the quarter or not.
Tim Cook emphasized on saying that we know how many we’ll have, but that is difficult to predict demand for a product until it starts shipping. This statement can be related to the rumors that suggested the limited stock of the new iPad mini retina display. However, Apple hopes this holiday season to be a iPad season which seems difficult because of the flat sales for the iPads. No words on availability of the new iPads in the Indian market, the new iPhones will be available starting 1st November.
