If you’re looking into getting an iPad mini for the holidays, time’s ticking away. The good news is that Apple has cut shipping estimates for the tablet down to one week (via MacRumors). Still, if you want it in time to see it under the tree, you should look into ordering one soon. In fact, that should be the case with anything you want to pick up by then.
This also means that the company is slowly catching up to the demand. During this extremely busy holiday season, that’s a bit difficult to do, but if they can pull together enough inventory, it should be able to please shoppers by the 25th. At worst, some will have to wait a few days after to get their new tablet. Never as much fun, but still better than nothing.
Also, Apple notes that if you want an iPad, order before midnight on Dec. 12 to guarantee delivery before Christmas.
