Apple has cut iPad mini shipments for the second quarter of 2013 to between 10-12 million units, according to DigiTimes.

The decrease may be as high as 20% on month during April, the sources noted, and may continue to slightly decrease throughout the quarter to bring total shipments of the iPad mini to as low as 10 million units during the quarter. Apple's cut comes as it is adjusting its reserves for the next-generation iPad mini, which is likely to be released in the third quarter, added the sources. However, the sources also noted that Apple's cut is because of increased competition from various 7-inch Android tablets.

Earlier this month the site reported that Apple had adjusted its shipment estimates for the iPad and iPad mini in 2013, increasing iPad mini shipments to 55 million and decreasing iPad shipments to 33 million.

If you take the cable to the Apple store they will replace it at no charge.

Has anyone else got broken lightning charge wires, two wires have broke on me one when it was just 12 hours old that one broke because the plastic cover on the USB plug slipped off as I was removing the plug from the charger, as a result the wires ripped! Took it back got a new one. I have Best Buy insurance. I was told that I would need to get it by mail, now the phone was near dead then I would have been days without a phone, so I made a scene & they replaced it in the store I should not have to wait for the mail to get something they have a store full of (I pay $15 a month for Best Buy insurance!) the second wire broke & I called AT&T & asked if I took the wire to the local store would they replace it I was told that they would! I've had trouble with store before so I asked her to make a note of this because I did not want to waste gas & time driving there & not get a new wire! Sure enough I drive there & they tell me to mail it! So I go back to Best Buy & I have to act rude again to get what I pay insurance for! PS the second one broke because of fatigue near the Lightning plug! Because they use Aluminum wire for the ground wire! It costs 3¢ yes that's three cents to make this wire & they sell it for $20!
