iPad 2 Online Shipping Times Drop to 1-2 Weeks in U.S.

Apple has dropped the shipping delays of its iPad 2 to the lowest point that it has been since the device launched last month. Stock issues had shipping times as high as 4-5 weeks and it appears that Apple has solved them as the device is now listed as shipping in 1-2 weeks in the U.S.

When the iPad 2 launched on March 11th, the iPad 2 has seen overwhelming amounts of demand, demand that left Apple with short supply. The iPad 2 was and is still hard to find in retail stores and shipping times online have bounced around.

At their highest point, they were at 4-5 weeks and before today were at 2-3 weeks, a drop that came after Apple apparently secured a deal with a third major supplier of LCD screens for the iPad 2.

Shipping times have dropped across the board with both the Wi-Fi only and 3G models seeing a drop to 1-2 weeks.

This news come shortly after a report indicated that production of the iPhone 5 would begin in July or August with shipping coming at some point in September.

    It’s definitely becoming easier to find an iPad 2. Even a week ago it was rare to see any inventory on iPad2Tracker.com, but now they’re popping up all over the place. With Apple recently adding their third touchscreen manufacturer, it shouldn’t be too long before iPad 2s are plentiful.
