Fortune’s Apple 2.0 blog reports today that Apple’s iPad 2 shipping times have now finally dropped to 1-3 business days in the online store, indicating that Apple has managed to solve its supply chain problems that affected its Q2 results, just days away from the announcement of its Q3 results. Analysts have been saying for weeks that the sky is the limit for Apple as far as iPad 2 sales are concerned, if it can just get that supply chain up to speed and coping efficiently with demand, and now it seems that they have. As Apple 2.0 points out, shipping times seemed to have been stagnating at 1-2 weeks since the middle of April, then dropped to 3-5 days on July 8, before falling to the lowest possible shipping time of 1-3 days. There is no word as to exactly why this has happened now, but recent reports from sources in Apple’s supply chain stated that Apple was buying up huge amounts of iPad 2 components with the aim of improving the supply-demand situation.
