Apple's "Other Products" category, which includes AirPods, Apple TV, Apple Watch, HomePod, Beats products, iPod touch, and other Apple-branded and third-party accessories brought in nearly $4 billion in revenue, up an impressive 38 percent compared to the year-ago quarter that brought in $2.9 billion in revenue.

According to Apple CEO Tim Cook, the Apple Watch, one of the most lucrative products in the "Other" category, saw strong revenue growth "in the double digits" year-over-year, setting a March quarter revenue record. Apple does not break down "Other" product sales, so specific numbers on Apple Watch sales are unavailable.

Cook described AirPods, another popular "Other" product as a "runaway hit" that the company is still working to keep in stock.

Wearables saw a combined revenue increase of almost 50 percent year over year, which includes AirPods, Beats, and Apple Watch. Cook said that Apple's wearables business is now the size of a Fortune 300 company.

Cook didn't have much to say about the HomePod, which is also in the "Other" category, but he said that he believes it is a "breakthrough" speaker that will change the way we listen to music.

Apple is "looking forward" to adding new features to the HomePod and introducing it to more markets soon, but he gave no timeline for these updates.

I have yet to see anyone with a watch. AirPods are far more prevalent.
I don’t know where you live or how often you get out, but I see the Apple Watch absolutely everywhere. Compared to where it was in 2015 of April to where it is today, I see the Apple Watch a minimum of 10 times a day. There is a reason they have crushed the competition around them with the band customization, the health related features, Apple Pay and the convenience of the notifications.

Perhaps that says more about your social situation than about the Watch. They are all over. LOL.

MacRumors users told me a couple of years ago that the Apple Watch was a flop. Lol.

Fast forward to 2018, you see Apple Watches everywhere.

Really? I was at Disneyland the other day, and it seemed like almost every wrist had an Apple Watch on it. I'm talking about seeing thousands of people wearing it during the afternoon I visited.

As a side note, it's a shame that Disney didn't integrate their Fast Pass system with Apple Watch, as it would be a much better user experience than pulling out a phone to scan.

I was skeptical of the AW. I waited to Series 2 to jump in. I love it.
Not about the design per se but the features it offers. I am an avid swimmer and the watch took my fitness to new levels. Well done Apple.

Agree.

Using my unscientific method:

‘how frequently do I see product y in London everyday on the tube’

My answer is ‘it’s a hit’.

You see people with the watch all the time, just as much as when the iPod and iPhone became massive hits and it seemed that every other person had one on the tube around 2004 & 2010, respectively.
