A decade after Apple’s first iPad sold out, it’s the company’s second-biggest seller.
And now, it says, it will be selling the biggest one ever sold in Manhattan.
The iPhone maker is launching a Manhattan store that it hopes will help it expand into other cities, from Boston to Toronto, where it’s already a major player.
Apple has already sold the largest number of Apple-branded laptops in Manhattan, which has a high percentage of Apple customers, according to an analysis by The Wall Street Journal.
But there’s one big catch.
The company says it’s not selling the iPad in Manhattan because the city’s high price tag is too high for a second-hand product.
Instead, it is selling the Macbook Air for $2,199.
Apple says that the Macbooks will be delivered by FedEx and it has promised to pay for them with its own money.
But the Macs are priced in Manhattan at more than double what they are in New York City, where Apple says it has no presence.
The iPad is the biggest Apple product ever sold.
It sold more than 1 million iPads during its first three months of availability.
The iPad sold more on average in New Jersey than in Manhattan during its initial sales.
Apple is now hoping to expand its reach beyond New York.
It is considering moving its Manhattan location to the Hudson River Valley, said a person familiar with the matter who spoke on condition of anonymity because the company is not commenting publicly.
Apple’s sales in Manhattan peaked in the second quarter of this year, with the company reporting $1.9 billion in revenue, a big jump from the $917 million it reported in the previous quarter.
Apple said in October that it had shipped more than 11 million iPads globally, a rise of 17 percent from the same period last year.
