Apple’s new iPad Pro goes on sale next month and according to a recent report, Apple has ordered 2.5 million units of their new tablet from their suppliers for the launch of the iPad Pro.
This is a relatively low number for Apple to order from its suppliers, although the high cost of the new tablet has something to do with the low order.
Apple is obviously being cautious with its orders of the iPad Pro ahead of the tablets launch, the company doesn’t want to order more tablets that it may actually be able to sell at launch.
The 2.5 million units that Apple have ordered cover between the launch of the device and the end of the year, obviously if demand is higher than Apple expects, then it can increase production to meet demand.
Apple does not know as yet just how popular its new tablet will be, the higher price of the device could mean that the market for the new tablet is more limited than other models, proces for the device start at $799.
Apple will launch their new iPad Pro next month, if it does end up being popular, then it could be in short supply throughout this year until early next year.
