Apple's AirPods continue to maintain high popularity rates even after six years of successful sales. Here is how Airpods became Apple's most popular product of all time:
Apple created wireless earbuds, called AirPods, in 2016. The AirPods' extreme simplicity, including their sleek design, lightweight, and audio quality, has been one of the main factors in their success. You just need to open the case and tap the iPhone a few times to be ready. The AirPods automatically connect to the iPad, Apple Watch, or Mac once they are associated with an Apple ID, requiring no user action.
Apple is a well-known brand that habitually dominates the world for numerous digital accessories ranging from iPhones to iWatches. Airpods - the wireless earbuds, are another product and there's a good reason for their popularity. Besides being eye-catching and easily recognizable, Airpods are a symbol of status, wealth and style.
Universal iconic design:
Apple has continuously refused to change the look of the AirPods or offer more colour options because the design of the product is already universally popular and instantly noticeable.
iPhone and Airpods are inseparable:
Apple considers AirPods an indispensable gadget for iPhone users. All throughout the world, there are more than one billion iPhone users, equating to one billion consumers who would definitely purchase the AirPods. That is indeed what has happened: 2017 witnessed the sale of only 15 million AirPods; a total of 35 million devices were sold in 2018; whereas, in 2019, 60 million AirPods were sold, followed by 114 and 85 million sales in 2020 and 2021, respectively.
Following their early release, millions of AirPods (including other essential gadgets) have really been sold, substantially boosting Apple's revenue to $41 billion in 2022.
