Have people been unable to get iPads?
I think the decline in sales (2 quarters in a row) is due to iPadOS. With more and more people working or learning from home, they want more versatility. iPadOS just isn't cutting it when it comes to things like (1) multitasking (windowing), (2) tepid USB-C support (e.g., audio devices, external display limitations), (3) unoptimized home screen experience, and (4) dearth of pro apps.

Surprise surprise Tim. People want desktops and laptops for getting real work done, not toys
The numbers don't lie, people are speaking with their wallets. Just look at the iPad forum, you have for the most part almost universal displeasure with the operating system and its limitations. Even the Airs come with M1 chips that are found in MBA and iMac but no real advantage is see because of the operating system.

iPadOS is a lame duck because Apple clearly want it to be a separate device to a laptop so they gimp it.

At peak our household had 4 iPads for the family of 4. We are now down to 1 that is used by our younger daughter who does not have a laptop yet. Like many said, generally speaking iPads are not good for productivity with exception to few niche scenarios and we agree with that.
