AirPods is slated to be Apple’s most successful product line this year
Apple released two models of AirPods this year alone, but it does not seem to hurt the devices’ marketability. Industry analyst Horace Dediu of Asymco reported on Thursday that AirPods is slated to surpass $4 billion in sales for the quarterly revenue. The estimation was based on analyzing the numbers reported for Apple’s sales from its “Wearables, Home and Accessories” product category where the earbuds would likely be included.
The predicted AirPods milestone is not far-fetched. It can be recalled that it was reported in the previous weeks that Apple doubled its order on the production of AirPods following strong demands for its true-wireless earbuds.
