iPad 3 Headed to Production Already, Says One Industry Analyst [Rumor]

 |  |  |  October 14, 2011


This is interesting, an analyst is claiming that his supply chain sources are telling him that the iPad 3 is already moving into production. The analyst in question is from Susquehanna Financial and is named Jeff Fidacaro. According to Fidacaro’s checks, Apple has ramped up Q4 iPad orders to between 12 and 14 million up from a planned 11 to 13 million.

The sources tip that the increase is in part due to early production runs of the iPad 3. The iPad 2 landed in March of this year, and Apple will undoubtedly sell hoards of the next iPad so getting it into production early makes sense. The analyst figures that anywhere from 600,000 to a million of those extra iPad orders are the iPad 3. There’s no possibility the iPad 3 production is for release this year, but they could be getting an early jump on components to be released in Q1 2012.

Of course, this could all be wrong and the extra production numbers might just be stock for an expected hot product for the holiday season. What do you think? Could the iPad 3 be hitting production already? The time frames match with a March launch pretty well.
