Wearables, Home, and Accessories growth revenue was up a total of 25 percent combined. Apple CEO Tim Cook said that wearables growth was up thanks to strong sales of the Apple Watch Series 6 and the Apple Watch SE.

Going forward, Apple expects the new second-generation Apple TV 4K and AirTag to drive Wearables, Home, and Accessories growth. Apple CFO Luca Maestri said that Apple is "excited about the future of this category.
