To that end, Apple’s AirPods manufacturer is reportedly in the process of expanding AirPods production capacity.
According to Chinese-language Economic Daily News, quoted by Digitimes, Apple’s AirPods supplier Inventec has recently started expanding capacity at its Shanghai plants to increase output. The plants are also working overtime to deliver orders, the report goes to note.
That said, nobody has any idea how many AirPods Apple has made so far, how many it’s mass-producing every day, or how many it has sold so far.
Apple CEO Tim Cook said a few days ago that the AirPods are a "runaway success" for the company. That may very well be an accurate way to describe Apple’s performance, but Cook did not translate the company’s runaway success into actual numbers.
What's clear is that the US$ 159 iPhone accessory is a big success with Apple fans. If anybody still haven’t had a chance to buy theirs, at least now they know Apple is doing everything it can to increase supply.
