A while back the iPad 2 faced shortages due to some production issues with LG Display (LGD). As most of you already know, Samsung, Chimei Innolux and LGD are the primary manufacturers for the displays on the iPad 2, and issues such as failing drop tests and backlight bleeding have caused a disruption in the production cycle, thus causing the entire world to experience long delays in getting their iPad 2s.
According to Digitimes, it appears that LGD has managed to get back on track and are now pushing out 4 million displays a month since August, an increase from their 2.6 million that was reported in July. These output levels are said to maintain throughout September as well, and hopefully the rest of the year in time for the holiday season. If you happen to be living in a country where iPad 2s are in short supply, hopefully things have already started to pickup!
