Apple Catches Up to Demand for iPad Mini, Now 'In Stock' in Many Countries

Apple appears to have finally achieved supply-demand balance on its popular iPad mini, with the company's online stores for the United States, Canada, Australia, and a number of other countries now showing all models as "in stock" for immediate shipment. European customers are still being quoted 1-3 business days for new orders, although these will likely move to "in stock" relatively shortly.

Supplies of the iPad mini have been constrained since the device's launch over three months ago, with early reports indicating that supplies would remain tight into 2013. Apple acknowledged those shortages on its earnings conference call last month, noting that it expected to catch up with demand later this quarter, in line with today's move to "in stock" status.

I was once in an Apple store in Manchester and as i was looking at iPad mini and playing with one, i heard a conversation of a couple on my left side. A woman was telling a man, while she was holding an iPad mini on her hand: "I love these retina screens on iPad's.Looks really beautiful"
