Apple (AAPL) has adjusted expected iPad (down) and iPad Mini (up) shipments in 2013 to 33M and 55M respectively, reports Digitimes. Originally the company had predicted 60M for the iPad and 40M for the Mini. It may be bad news for panel suppliers to the iPad, but good news to those for the iPad Mini.

    Why are you publishing this today? This news is at least a week old http://bit.ly/YCnWIy

     

    Given lower margins for the mini it is negative for Apple, but it is also week old news.

    They are reporting it because apple has officially revised the sales estimates now. Your link was speculation.

    I am starting to question the timing and wording of some Market Currents. Absolutely frustrating to have to be skeptical regarding information.

    If you are looking for a tablet that is beautifully built with very high end materials, one that works perfectly every time, one that is fast and fluid with a wonderful ecosystem, the ipad is the intelligent choice. sadly, there are many people now that just don't care about quality, they will settle for cheap junk like the android tablets.
    the ipad mini is also a beautiful and beautifully made device. I imagine apple will refine it with retina etc, Perhaps they would add a cellular option for people who want that.
    if apple is seeing less demand for their ipad, are the other companies also seeing less demand for their full size tablets.
    I just bought two more ipad4's for my kids. they did not want the minis. their friends however, have minis.
    I also was in the market for a new laptop, but like the form factor of a tablet. I picked up a 128gb Surface Pro. It is built with beauty and high end materials as is the ipad. the surface is unbelievably fast, stable and very fluid. the screen is stunning. it boots in seconds and works flawlessly. I can now do all my productive work and transfer files from the surface to my home and work computers. Skydrive, onenote, word,excel, access all work seamlessly. as an apple shareholder and abig fan of the ipad. the surface scares me because it is that good. the more I use it the more it amazes me. I travelled over the weekend and for the first time, I left my ipad and laptop home. I just needed the surface pro. it has become my primary computing device unless I need a much larger screen, the surface does it all. if I could get ibooks and 4g on it, it may just be the perfect device. it is incredible how it learns from its user and then suggests words before you write them based on your previous compositions. the surface pro is powerful and fast enough to actually replace your computer, yet smooth enough to lay on the couch with it and watch a movie or mindlessly surf the web. I can load actually programs, not just apps. if you want the finest tablet that works perfectly all the time and is easy to use, the ipad is it. if you want a magnificently built, full blown computer in a personal tablet form, the surface pro is just amazing.

    That news won't hurt the stock price of AAPL, quite the opposite so it's best to keep it hush hush.

    How about some balanced reporting - you should be adding a comment that at the last Apple Earnings Call, Tim Cook emphasized that one should not put credence into rumors about product channels and further if any one data point was correct there are multiple avenues for supplies.

    Fair reporting would dictate that you remind your readers that during the last Apple Earnings call Tim Cook went out of his way to make sure that everyone understood that not to believe the rumors about production numbers and in fact if one data point was correct there are alternative sources for builds.
