Apple's "Other Products" category, which includes the Apple TV, Apple Watch, Beats products, iPod, and Apple-branded and third-party accessories, is seeing solid growth according to Apple's Q2 2017 earnings results.

Revenue from "Other Products" was at $2.87 billion during the quarter, up from $2.19 billion in the year-ago quarter.

Apple Watch sales doubled year-over-year during the holiday quarter, and according to Apple CEO Tim Cook, the response to AirPods has been "great." Cook says that demand for AirPods continues to significantly exceed supply, and that Beats growth is also "very strong."

"Combine Apple Watch, AirPods, and Beats and our revenue from wearable products in the last four quarters was the size of a Fortune 500 company," said Cook.

There are not a lot of independent accessories from the iPhone, but the Airpods and Apple Watch work seamlessly with the iPhone to illustrate more so what I was posting.

I have been impressed with the AirPods with the battery life, comfortability and overall portability with the charging case. This has been a huge hit for Apple even with the delay initially.

The Apple Watch speaks for itself with notifications and fitness. I think the Series Apple Watch was a step in the right direction with the GPS and additional water resistance.

Both of these products have a future with Apple and will continue to expand with improvements. I think there's no arguing or denying the overall depth both of these accessories to the iPhone contribute.

Imagine how many AirPods they'd sell if they weren't constantly backordered 6 weeks from the day they were finally released...

A shady af company lumping a whole bunch of odds & ends & under-preformers in a broad brushstroke bin...... But it seems die-hard Apple-ites don't seem to mind, so long as they see a combo of increased revenues & increased iPhone sales (& it seems only those 2).
Dude they still made $2.8b in that "bin"...
