Analyst: Apple’s new iPad Pro to sell as many as 2.6 million units this quarter, despite production issues

“KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo says Apple is seeing less than satisfactory output of iPad Pro’s massive 12.9-inch display, the tablet’s main draw,” Mikey Campbell reports for AppleInsider. “Kuo says Sharp is currently the sole supplier for Pro’s high-resolution screen, though Samsung is expected to lend a hand before the end of 2015.”

“As many iPad Pro buyers are well aware, Apple Pencil was in strictly limited supply at launch, with current ship-by times pegged at four- to five-weeks,” Campbell reports. “Confirming industry whispers, Kuo says assembly of the complex device is not going as smoothly as planned. ”

Campbell reports, “As for unit sales, iPad Pro is off to a decent start with Apple moving 2.4 million to 2.6 million copies to close out 2015.”

  1. Apple Stupidwatch = Worthless

    IPad Pro = Redundant

    ATV 4 = Redundant

    Macbook Uniport = Worthless!!!!!!!

    Mac Pro Trashcan = Pointless

    Apple Music = Worthless

    Let’s start the Tim Cook firing petition/countdown.


  2. There are no production issues.

    Understandable allocation logistics issues are the reason for the early delays and are totally immaterial and insignificant to the big picture.

    iPad rules the world.
