iPad buyers can now grab more than two tablets per order

Apple used to restrict customers to two iPads per order, but that limit has been removed.

iPad buyers can now buy as many tablets as they want in one shot.

Apple has lifted its long-standing restriction of limiting iPad buyers to only two tablets at a time. Citing an internal Apple memo, 9to5Mac says the change has already gone into effect at Apple's global retail stores (with the exception of those in Hong Kong).

But online buyers will have to wait a few more days. Apple's online store will reportedly drop the limit of two iPads per order starting Monday, June 11, the same day the company's Worldwide Developers Conference gets off the ground.

A sales rep at an Apple retail store confirmed to CNET that the limit has been lifted. A spokesman for Apple also confirmed the news for Apple's retail stores but wouldn't comment on the status for the online store.

The timing suggests the removal may have something to do with WWDC. But 9to5Mac believes it just means Apple has enough stock of the popular tablet to satisfy customers who want more than two per order.

That seems a likely explanation as Apple's online store now shows the iPad in stock, meaning no wait time for online buyers.
