Apple is expected to launch AirPods by next week. According to an Apple reseller Conrad based in Europe, they will receive fresh stocks of AirPods on November 17. However, the new Wireless earphones will be available for purchase on November 18 and 19.
The availability of new wireless earphones was disclosed by a reporter who works with a German blog Apfelpage.de. He ordered them on October 14 and reportedly visited the shop to cancel the order.
However, the staff told him to wait till November 17 since they will get stocks from Apple. The staff assured that the new earphones would be available if it arrives between November 18 and 19.
Official Conrad website says AirPods will be delayed
Meanwhile, the official website of Conrad still states that AirPods will be available for shipment in 7 to 8 weeks. There are two possibilities here. The employee could have provided incorrect information, or the site has not been updated with the latest news. Since the news of the availability was revealed by the employee, you can believe to a certain extent.
If the Wireless Bluetooth earphones were made available on November 18 and 19, then you can expect to get it well in time for the upcoming holidays. Recently, a report citing supply chain sources gave an indication that AirPods will not launch until January 2017. Hence, the tech enthusiasts believed that it would not be available for the holidays.
Apple retail stores got demo units of AirPods
In the meantime, few Apple retail stores received demo units of AirPods, which signalled the fact of the imminent launch. In October, the Cupertino-based tech giant indefinitely postponed the launch of the newly launched earphones.
During the launch, the company revealed that AirPods would be launched in October. However, the company added that the product team requires a little more time before the wireless earphones are made available on retail shelves. Soon after the announcement, Apple modified the official accessories site with the message currently unavailable.
We don’t have any official information as to when Apple will officially launch AirPods in India. We expect the new wireless earphone to be released in India before the end of Q1 2017.
AirPods provides quick access to Siri with a double-tap coupled with more than 24-hour battery life. Moreover, it has an ability to quickly charge and produces rich and high-quality audio. It also provides seamless switching between various gadgets.
