According to Apple’s website, initial supplies of the new fourth-generation iPad have run out and shipping times have subsequently been pushed back to one week. The $499 tablet, along with the iPad mini, is scheduled to be delivered to customers on Friday.

The iPad mini initial supply ran-out completely over the weekend as well, leaving some customers 2 weeks until they receive their prized 7.9-inch device.

Additionally, the first benchmarks for the 4th gen iPad appeared over the weekend. According to Geekbench, the new iPad’s A6X processor clocks in at 1.4GHz and has the same 1GB of RAM as the iPhone 5 and 3rd gen iPad. That puts the new iPad about twice as fast the the 3rd gen — nice.

Thanks, Alex Allegro!
