Apple broke a new record with 11.8 million Apple Watch shipments last quarter
When it comes to smartwatches, there's no doubt that the Apple Watch series is the more popular one. According to IDC, the research firm has recorded that there is a total of 11.8 million shipments as of the third quarter of 2020. Comparing with Q3 2019, it's a 75% increase.
In other words, this is a new record for Apple as they usually don't pass the 9.2 million mark in any previous results.
