While Apple’s AirPods were initially mocked due to its somewhat unusual and somewhat funky design, the company’s wireless earbuds have since become wildly popular. Indeed, optimism surrounding Apple’s wireless division in general — a division which includes AirPods, Beats, and the Apple Watch — is a big reason why Apple shares have skyrocketed more than 50% over the last six months alone. At this point, there’s no doubt that AirPods have turned into a legit money-maker for Apple. To this end, some analysts anticipate that AirPods will soon generate more money for Apple than the iPod did at its peak. That’s quite impressive for an accessory. We’ve also seen some analyst reports claiming that AirPods sales in 2019 were more than double what Apple saw in 2018. While Apple doesn’t disclose AirPods unit sales, a new report from Strategy Analytics relays that the company in 2019 shipped nearly 60 million AirPods. That’s an impressive figure, to be sure, and we can only imagine that AirPods sales and revenue during the recent holiday quarter was boosted by the October release of the more margin-friendly AirPods Pro.
