Apple CEO, Tim Cook declared that Apple Watch is more popular than the first-gen iPhone, which was released in 2007. This statement came when he explained the sales during the holiday season last year, wherein the Apple Watch was sold better than the first-gen iPhone sold in 2017. At that time, iPhone was sold around 1 million units in 74 days.
Up to now, Tim Cook keeps hiding the certain amount of the sold Apple Watch, because their rivals may use it to compete Apple in the smartwatch world. The latest report from the analysts said that Apple Watch took 52% global smartwatch shipments in 2015. This number can become the evidence that Apple Watch is so popular and sold a lot.
Besides the popularity of Apple Watch can be seen from its first sales volume, we also can see it from the Google search fact. Apple Watch is in the second position as the most searched word on Google Search for technology category in 2015.
Recently, Apple Watch was declared as the Top Luxury Brand Watch. However, the manufacture complaints about the Apple Watch production, because it’s not as good as they’re expected.
