The $4 billion 'proof' that Apple AirPods are wildly popular

There’s something approximately Apple and merchandise that have the word ‘Pod’. First, it turned into the iPod that — arguably — started out the cutting-edge Apple cult as hundreds of thousands of buyers all around the international swooned over them and forked out numerous cash to shop for it. And now it looks like the AirPods are set to surpass the popularity of iPod. According to a report through CultofMac, an analyst has envisioned that AirPods are set to bring $four billion in a single sector to Apple’s ever-developing coffers.

Horace Dediu, an analyst with Asymco, has anticipated that via the end of the fourth region, AirPods might have earned $4 billion for Apple. Apple doesn’t screen the wide variety of AirPods — or for that matter every other product — so it’s difficult to put a number to what number of AirPods had been offered worldwide. The iPod, in 2007, had in fact earned $4 billion in a unmarried quarter and now the AirPods have matched the figure.

Apple currently has AirPods variants within the market with the cutting-edge one being the AirPods Pro. AirPods Pro function lively noise cancellation and retail for Rs 24,990 whereas the AirPods are available two variants. The one with wi-fi charging help retails for Rs 18,990 while the one with no wi-fi charging are priced at Rs 14,990.

Apple AirPods had been around for less than five hours and analysts estimate that there are already 50 million users throughout the world. This number is ready to develop exponentially inside the next few years, in line with Dediu.

There were reports that Apple has doubled the production capacity of the AirPods Pro. Initially, it became speculated that Apple was generating 1 million AirPods Pro every month but given the surge in demand, it's miles now reportedly generating 2 million units every month.

Apple’s Wearables business — also consists of Apple Watch — thanks to the AirPods is ready rake in $10.7 billion for the Cupertino-based totally tech giant, as in step with Dediu. Interestingly, this envisioned figure is predicted to be greater than the combined sales of iPad and Mac devices.
