Tim Cook Talks Apple Watch Sales And More At WSJD Conference
Apple CEO Tim Cook recently went over a list of topics at the Wall Street Journal’s WSJD Live conference. This took place in Laguna Beach, California, and included pre-sales for the new Apple TV, and revealing that they have over 6.5 million paid customer currently using Apple Music.
Although Cook was very silent about actual numbers that the Apple Watch moved, he noted that “We don’t want to give information to competitors.” However, he did allude to additional health-related functions coming to the Apple Watch in the future by saying “The health aspect of watch has a long product road ahead of it.”
In addition, Cook noted that Apple moved even more units than before by saying “We shipped a lot the first quarter, then last quarter we shipped even more.” According to the The Wall Street Journal, Cook noted that sales of the Apple Watch have been accelerating following the wrist-worn gizmo’s April 2015 launch, part of which can be contributed to new points of sale and countries added to the sales mix on a common basis. But, for folks looking for actual stats, sadly you won’t be able to find them, since Cook noted that they don’t want competitors to know, if that’s the real reason.
Looking to the Apple TV, Cook has confirmed that pre-sales for the new Apple TV will start next Monday, October 26, with the first batch arriving near the end of next week. As mentioned above, Cook also noted that Apple Music has convinced over 6.5 million users to pay for the service past the free three-month trail.
