The 7.9-inch iPad mini helped Apple deliver record sales of 22.9 million iPad units in the most recent quarter. Notwithstanding reports that the $329 iPad mini outselling and potentially cannibalizing sales of the 9.7-inch iPad, reports confirm that supply of the smaller iPad is catching up with demand. Showing shipping times of up to one month during November, and about a week in December, Apple's web store in the U.S., Canada, and several other countries are now showing ship times of just 3 to 5 days.
