According to a new study by the Consumer Intelligence Research Partners (CIRP) — as reported by “AppleInsider” ( — Apple has seen a significant increase in the adoption of its iPad since the Retina display version was released in March.

According to the study, among buyers of the new iPad, 21% indicated they are more likely to use the touchscreen tablet for business. That compares to 13% of iPad users across all models who said they would use their iPad for business.

CIRP’s data shows that leisure use is still the main use for iPads but that business use is increasing. The study found that business use saw the single largest increase of any category.
