If it's one company having issues with production lately, it's Apple. Apple's new Retina iPad mini has been having supply issues since it launched earlier in the month, with the company reportedly struggling with low display yields.




Multiple analysts have said that the Retina iPad mini production would be at around two million units for Q4 2013, but DigiTimes has something else to say about that. DigiTimes is claiming that production issues are all but ironed out, and that Apple is pushing ahead with orders scaling up to four million units for the month of November.


Obviously it is the holiday shopping season, and Apple needs something to sell, DigiTimes has said: "As bottlenecks in making components for the iPad mini with Retina have gradually been removed, Apple has increase orders in November to nearly four million units, according to Taiwan-based supply chain makers. Currently, Apple's orders for the iPad mini with Retina have already surpassed those for the first-generation iPad mini, the sources noted."
