AirPods Pro to help Apple double AirPods shipments to 60 million units this year
Apple is forecasted to double AirPods shipments to 60 million this year thanks to the introduction of AirPods Pro, according to Bloomberg.
The report suggests that Apple is seeing “much higher” early demand for AirPods Pro than originally expected, resulting in assembly partners working at capacity to keep up with demand.
The $249 AirPods Pro — which offer noise cancellation and water resistance — have surpassed expectations and demand for them is pushing Apple’s assembly partners against capacity and technical constraints, a person familiar with the matter said. Multiple suppliers are competing for the business of manufacturing the Pro earphones, though some are still building up the technical proficiency.
