Supply has finally caught up with demand for Apple's iPad Mini.

Rather than days long lag time for the device, the company's online stores in the U.S., Canada, Australia, and other countries are now showing that all models of the iPad Mini are "in stock" and ready to ship.

Apple's 7-inch tablet went on sale last fall. Its thin and light design is more book-like than the larger iPad, while its cameras, storage capacities, optional LTE antenna, and general functionality are said to offer a full iPad experience.

Since the tablet's launch, the company has been working to play catch up with demand -- some of this was reportedly due to manufacturing snafus. In December, wait time for the Mini dropped from two weeks to one week. According to MacRumors, Apple has said that tight supply for the iPad Mini wouldn't ease until later this quarter.

Despite several countries now being able to readily get their hands on the device, many of Apple's online stores in Europe are still showing one to three business days on all iPad Mini orders, according to MacRumors.
