People pre-ordering Apple’s new iPad online to avoid the release-day crowds at stores will have to wait longer to get their hands on the devices.

Apple says that due to high demand, it has been forced to put back delivery times for online buyers.

Those ordering online will now be restricted to a maximum of two devices, and will have to wait until Monday 19 March, rather than getting deliveries on the launch date of Friday 16 March because demand for the new version of the tablet is “off the charts”, according to an Apple spokesperson.
