After Apple Airpods had been on delay since their supposed launch in October, they have now gone on sale. The reason for the delay is still uncertain but Apple tried to placate its customers by saying it required “more time” before the AirPods were “ready for our customers”.
Apple announced that the AirPods would be “shipping in limited quantities” and that customers should “check online for updates.” Customers can expect to see AirPods in Apple Stores and other Apple authorized stores within the next week.
AirPods go great with the iPhone 7, which is one of the first smartphones that comes without a headphone jack. AirPods are equipped with a W1 chip that allows for better audio. It also has a longer lasting battery life that will give users up to 24 hours of listening time.
AirPods are sold with a charging case and a USB cord for $159 and can be found here. They are sold in over 100 countries which include Japan, Australia, China, France, Germany, and the U.S.
