Two of Apple's most-popular gadgets -- iPhone and iPod -- seem to have finally got competition. But Apple does not have much to worry.

Another impressive figure is the market share: AirPods are estimated to take over 50% of the global shipment of true wireless (TWS) headsets.

Incidentally, the TWS category saw a blazing 202% growth in the year. Little doubt then that thanks to AirPod sales, Strategy Analytics report sees Apple's non-iPhone revenues soaring. Coming to iPod, Apple was expected to sell $4 billion worth of AirPods in the 2019 holiday … [Read more...] about iPhone has got its biggest competitor, but why Apple is not worried
