The dog days of summer are shaping up to be the perfect time to buy an iPad 2. Apple has ramped up production of its second-generation device and is said to be anticipating sales of upwards to 14 million iPads during the three months beginning tomorrow, according to Digitimes. After producing between 7-9 million iPads since April, Apple is gearing up for the approaching back to school season by doubling its iPad 2 production. In addition, Apple is largely expected to release iOS 5 in September, which should boost sales as will the upcoming holiday shopping season. According to Taiwan-based Digitimes:
