Demand for next-gen tablet has been "off the charts."

Apple revealed its new iPad on March 7th, demonstrating its new features, which include: quad-core processors, LTE connectivity, retina display and native apps.

It seems the new tech has appealed to the masses of loyal fans, as the firm claims it is already struggling to keep up with demand ahead of the March 16th release date, according to USA Today.

The Apple statement, says: "Customer response to the new iPad has been off the charts and the quantity available for pre-order has been purchased. Customers can continue to order online and receive an estimated delivery date."

There are six different models available, but anyone hoping to purchase one online will be looking at a dispatch time of two-three weeks, meaning it will probably be April by the time the tablet arrives.

Additionally, there is a limit of two orders per customer, most likely to prevent people from bulk buying and reselling the devices for over the top prices on eBay and Amazon.
