The new Air has also scored three times the adoption rate of the first iPad Mini during launch weekend, says mobile analytics firm Fiksu.
Data from Fiksu shows consumers are responding favorably toward the iPad Air's design.
Consumers can now waltz into many Apple stores and pick up an iPad Mini Retina for the first time. To date, availability was limited to online sales and pre-orders with customer pickup.
For the third straight month, Apple has seen an increase in the number of top free apps downloaded from its iPhone store day day, according to stats from Fiksu.
In November, the total number of downloads of the top 200 free iPhone apps in the U.S. hit a record 5.65 million per day, according to mobile ad firm Fiksu.
New data suggests that recent changes made to Apple's App Store ranking algorithm were based not on how often users run applications, but how they are categorized within the directory.
