In December we reported that Apple was to greatly expand iPad mini production in 2013 and we could now understand why. DigiTimes is reporting this morning that LG is currently shipping 3.5 to 4 million iPad mini panels a month. The research firm WitsView stated that 65% of Apple's tablet shipments will be for the iPad mini. This explains LG's current drop in panels for the iPad 4 which is quoted as being as high as 90%. Apple is also known to shift orders between suppliers as needed without explanation.
