Delivery dates are slipping very quickly on Apple AirPods. New orders are now seeing delivery dates slip to four weeks out.
As first published:
First announced at the iPhone 7 event on Sept. 7, the $159 AirPods were supposed to ship by the end of October. On Oct. 26, Apple announced that the AirPods had been delayed, noting, “we need a little more time.”
On Nov. 30, Apple CEO Tim Cook told a customer that the headphones would begin shipping “over the next few weeks.” Despite this, some more recent reports suggested they wouldn’t arrive until early 2017.
If you want a pair of AirPods for Dec. 21 delivery, you should place your order now. Otherwise, your delivery date could quickly slip into the new year.
You can buy Apple AirPods via the company’s online retail store.
