Customers are loving the incredible new features of the iPad, including the stunning retina display, and we can't wait to get it into the hands of even more customers around the world this Friday."

India is not in the second list of countries that will receive the new iPad on March 23. However, there are rumours that the new iPad will reach the country by April end or first week of May.
