AirPods to be available in the end of this year or Jan 2017
The Apple new wireless AirPods is delayed to launch in January 2017. Earlier Apple said that, They will release the AirPods in market when the company is ready However, a new report from Apple Insider, speaking to unnamed sources and people familiar with Apple’s plans, suggests that Apple is still planning on shipping the AirPods before the end of 2016, and has no plans to delay the earphones until next year. Specifically, one source said there was “no way that these are getting pushed to January,” .
According to the sources, there is no official delay to January within Apple for the AirPods. On top of that, the publication polled ten separate Apple retail sites, and six of them had AirPods available to employees. The demo units are available, Stuff also has it. At those locations, employees are just awaiting notification from management to start showing the AirPods to shoppers.
Retailers are ready to go anytime. “We’ve got a few pairs for customer demonstration that we’re just waiting on the word to start with.”
We have got another report. Two conflicting reports on the same day, one pointing to an early 2017 launch, and another saying that the AirPods will launch before the end of 2016.
Either way, will you buy those magical Airpods with $169 ? A bit expensive, though, within that budget, you can buy Powerbeats2 Wireless In-Ear Headphone, Active Collection – Flash Blue (Old Model) for only $99 which is far way better than the magical airpods which you will lose eventually.
