Orders for the upcoming Apple Watch have been higher-than-expected, said the sources. Judging from the orders, the sources estimated that about two million units of the new Apple Watch could be shipped monthly. Sales of the Apple Watch have been a disappointment, the sources suggested. Therefore, the recent pull-in of orders for the second generation from Apple is "rather aggressive," the sources said.
Suppliers are set to begin shipping components for the second generation Apple Watch in the third quarter. The timing suggests that Apple could launch the device alongside the iPhone 7. It would likely ship with watchOS 3, an update to the smartwatch's operating system that was announced at WWDC.
