Apple's AirPods and AirPods Pro are selling so well that the company can not keep up with the demand.

Apple doesn't break out specific sales numbers for AirPods. Now, a new report coming from Nikkie cements the claim, citing some supply chain sources.

"Apple has increased monthly orders for the latest AirPods Pro from 1 million units to at least 2 million units thanks to healthy demand."

Luxshare produces the AirPods Pro in two factories located in China.

The company has also asked the manufacturers of the regular AirPods to boost production ahead of the holiday season. It was even slated to make Apple's AirPower charging mat as well that never saw the light of the day.

And now, a new report from Nikkei cites that Apple has started doubling down on the production of the AirPods Pro to meet the increasing demand for the earbuds.

Are you planning to pick up a pair of the AirPods Pro?

The company is said to have tapped a Chinese supplier called Luxshare-ICT to ramp up its AirPods Pro production. That's why a Black Friday deal at Amazon that drops the AirPods Pro to $235 is one music lovers shouldn't ignore. However, the earbuds will cost Rs 24,900.

The new wireless earbuds are now offered for $249 with active noise cancellation and have up to 30 days waiting period in some markets, while the regular AirPods cost $159 without the wireless charging case and $199 with it. The AirPod Pro is also more expensive at $249 although it does come with a wireless charging case. They offer improved audio, active noise-cancellation, multiple ear tips, and sweat-resistance. You also get "Hey, Siri" support, so you can summon Apple's assistant without having to get out your phone.
