Apple estimated to have sold 3 million AirPods over the Black Friday weekend

The Apple AirPods Pro.

Sales of the AirPods are said to be stellar over the Black Friday weekend.

Dan Ives, an analyst from Wedbush, claims that Apple sold about three million AirPods and AirPods Pro over the Black Friday weekend. The estimate is based on channel checks and inventory shortages at retailers. Ives added that there is a surge in demand for the AirPods and AirPods Pro heading into the holiday period. 

The higher-than-expected demand for the AirPods Pro reportedly prompted Apple to pressure its assembly partners to push against capacity and technical constraints to deliver more. Luxshare Precision, which is one of the suppliers, is asked to increase production to 2 million units per month.
