In October, it will be one year since Apple launched the AirPods Pro. According to US analysts, the wireless headphones have sold like hot cakes.

Inventec Appliances is said to have been commissioned to join Luxshare and Goertek in manufacturing the devices, which means a major part of production is based in Vietnam.

But is the prediction accurate? Even though Digitimes has close contacts with Apple's subcontractors, it hasn't been infallible over the years. This rumour should probably be taken with a pinch of salt.
