Reports are suggesting that demand for Apple's AirPods Pro is proving so high that Apple has doubled its manufacturing order.
The news comes in wake of confirmation that AirPods Pro shipping times have slipped to the very end of 2019, with current orders expected to arrive December 31. The window to get your AirPods Pro (from Apple at least) before the end of the year is closing fast.
Bloomberg previously suggested that AirPods shipments overall may double in 2019 compared to last year, thanks to "much higher than expected" demand for AirPods Pro. This latest report of increased manufacturing orders would seem to confirm those reports.
According to the report, Apple's AirPods Pro devices are being manufactured by Luxshare in China, a long-time supplier of Apple's AirPods.
