Going strong: the Apple Watch is en route to set another sales record in 2018

During Apple's September keynote — a.k.a. "The iPhone Event" — Tim Cook proudly announced that the Apple Watch has become the most popular watch on Earth. Note – not the most popular smartwatch, but the most popular wearable timepiece out of all of them. Yup, the Apple Watch beat Rolex. At least for now, who knows?

But it seems the Cupertino-designed timepiece is not stopping yet. According to Patently Apple, sources inside the supply chain for the Apple Watch Series 3 say supplier revenues have reached a 23.89% year over year increase this November. The leak, reportedly, comes from Advanced Semiconductor Engineering — a main supplier for the SiP (system-in-package) that powers the Watch.

According to the sources, the Watch Series 3 is extremely popular and has been the driving force behind the increase in shipments. Speculation says that Apple is gearing up to sell 20% more watches this holiday season than it did last year. If that happens, the Apple Watch is well on its way to top its own sales record in 2018.
