Despite a near six week delay, Apple will now officially be releasing their brand new wireless headphones (AirPods). Apple Stores will be expecting shipments of the AirPods this week. Shipping for online purchases will take a bit longer, proximally six weeks.
The AirPods were first announced in September in addition to the iPhone 7, which included the controversial jack-free input. The release of AirPods were delayed by Apple, stating:
“We don’t believe in shipping a product before it’s ready, and we need a little more time before AirPods are ready for our customers.”
Obvious criticism is being directed towards the AirPods because of the high likelihood that you could lose at least one of them. The high price of $150 isn’t a strong point either. However, the reviews seem promising.
