Update: iPad mini stock could be sparse till the new year

It’s now known that the new 7.9″ screen that Apple are using in the iPad Mini could be in short supply until the new year.


Reports from Digitimes make it clear that Apple are struggling to keep up with demand of the iPad Mini. The manufacturers of the screens and the backlight modules just can’t make them quick enough. Was the move away from Samsung a good one?

Did Apple anticipate this when they stopped using Samsung to supply the screens or did they think LG and AU Optronics could keep up with demand?

Update: I’ve been notified of an excellent tool that’ll help you find an iPad mini in time for Xmas. iPad mini stock/ is a similar sort of thing as the Nexus stock checker we mentioned the other day. Take a look.

    Can we have some source links please? You even said you got it from Digitimes but still can’t manage to link it! Although you probably got the link from another tech site!

      Do you have a site? Its not the first time you’ve commented on links.

      I’ve updated it with the relevant links. The Digitimes is a member only article.

        No, I don’t have a site. I just think that people should respect the sites who discovered and put the information out there first. Engadget and the big sites always provide source links (Engadget even show them on their front page now), so why should it be any different for a site like this?

          I asked because it seems you only comment about links.

          Links are easily forgotten about. However, We will do our best to include them where necessary in the future.

          Thanks

            That’s fair enough Carl. I really enjoy your site, that is the one big thing which makes it seem slightly less authoritative and unprofessional though! Other than that keep up the good work!
