The iPad mini could be entering some rough weather,according to the sometimes-spotty DigiTimes.
On Friday,they reported that AU Optronics(they’re the company who supply the panels for the iPad Mini)will only ship 2.5 to 2.8 million units to manufactures in the second calendar quarter.That’s down by 1.2 to 1.5 million!!
According to DigiTimes,which is citing “supply chain sources” who claim that they have the knowledge of the drawdown(yeah right),Apple cut orders because they’re anticipation of a slowdown of iPad Mini shipments for the rest of the quarter.The slowdown if because people don’t want to buy stuff in the summer.
Despite this,Apple is still expected to have a great quarter.They’ll ship 10million iPad Mini units in the second quarter,according to those “trusted sources”.The rest of the panels are going to LG.
