Apple has doubled its monthly output capacity of the iPad and is now manufacturing 2 million per month to meet a very strong consumer demand. Apple reportedly would like to increase production even further...up to 3 million each month.
This makes sense since just recently, Apple reduced its iPad shipping delay timeframe to 24 hours from the previously 7-10 days less than a month ago!
Analyst Katy Huberty with Morgan Stanley indicated that iPad builds recently increased to 2 million per month, up from the previous number of just 1 million a month. Apple allegedly indicated to its suppliers that it would like to produce 3 million a month starting in the fourth calendar quarter of 2010.
