Although there are still two months left until Christmas, Apple knows that a great opportunity presents itself. This season is always good and this year will not be an exception. With the possible previous orders of iPhone X and sales of iPhone 8 and 8 Plus, they rub their hands. But the Apple suppliers are also excited about the increase in sales of their smartwatch and headphones. It is believed that both Apple Watch and AirPods will be the kings of Christmas and two of the most chosen among Apple products.
According to sources close to Apple's supply chain, the demand for both products has increased and the Cupertino company is preparing and placing more orders.
Apple Watch and AirPods will be the kings of Christmas
There are no exact figures in the report, but Apple's suppliers: Quanta Computer, Inventec, Universal Scientific Industrial (USI), Shunsin Technology and Luxshare-ICT, expect strong growth and significant revenue contribution from new orders. This increase in orders would already be related to what they expect to sell for the holidays.
The report also indicates that ShunSin Technology joins the Apple Watch supply chain. This company is a semiconductor manufacturer and started operating in 2008. Quanta and USI have been working with Apple on the smartwatch for some time, but ShunSin is new to this team. This new company will begin processing Apple orders in February or March of next year.
Apple Watch Series 3, a super sales
Apple has not yet released the Apple Watch sales report. However, Horace Dediu, an analyst at Asymco, says that:
Apple has probably sold around 15 million watches in the last 12 months at an average price of 330 dollars. Added to this total, it makes revenues from Apple Watch are around 4,900 million dollars.
With the recently new Apple Watch Series 3, a higher level of independence of the iPhone has been achieved. This should help you further increase your audience and reach more people. Now it is no longer considered only as an accessory for the iPhone.
AirPods and its dominance in the market
Meanwhile, AirPods continue to dominate the market as far as wireless headsets are concerned. They are still the most popular among customers, although only now has the offer been able to match the demand. Stock has increased in most countries and the wait has been reduced. Now the Delivery times are 2 to 3 weeks while before the period was 6 weeks.
For all these data it is believed that both Apple Watch and AirPods will be the kings of Christmas. Both devices may be a gift for this Christmas.
