Apple Sells 3M New iPads, iPad Minis
Apple announced Monday that 3 million iPad minis and fourth-generation iPads were sold this weekend after going on sale Friday in 34 countries.
Apple CEO Tim Cook said in a statement the iPad mini “practically sold out” but the company didn’t break out sales of the smaller iPad model compared to the iPad 4. Only t he Wi-Fi-only versions of both models were available at launch, with versions offering cellular connectivity to reach stores in the U.S. by the end of the month and other countries later this year.
The combined 3 million total was the same as the number of iPad 3s sold in that device’s first weekend in March, but the iPad 3 release included both Wi-Fi and cellular versions at launch.
