It’s been about 24 hours since Apple unveiled its next generation iPad and 20 hours since Apple’s online store went back up, yet most iPad models are still in stock. As you can see above, all versions of the black iPad are in stock and expected to ship on launch day, March 16th. White WiFi iPads are also still in stock, however white 4G AT&T iPads are delayed by 3 days (below), with orders expected to ship on March 19th.
It’s unclear if demand for the third generation iPad is weaker, or if Apple simply has greater stock this time around. We are used to seeing new Apple products sell out in a number of hours, so it was definitely surprising to see the iPad still in stock this morning.
