If Apple was courageous enough to remove the 3.5mm headphone jack on the iPhone 7, it was smart too to bring out a pair of wireless earphones, dubbed Airpods. These look like Apple’s proprietary Earpods, but have no wires coming out of them. Apple has spun a whole lotta magic to make the device truly wireless but failed on delivering them to the hands of eager and anxious iPhone owners by ‘late October’. Instead, Apple released the statement saying it is still working on finetuning the Airpods and will release it only after it’s ready. Well, it seems that day is approaching soon enough as fresh reports state that Apple is ready with the Airpods and they will ship as early as next week.
Earlier, we reported that the Airpods will not ship until early next year, but ApfelPage, a German-based Apple news website claims they will go live from next week.
Apparently, the news was confirmed by an European Apple reseller named Conrad who told one of their customers that new stock of the wireless earphones will hit the store on November 17th. This led to speculations that Apple will put the Airpods on sale either on the same day or a day or two after.
The report surely raises our hopes once again to see the marvelously designed wireless earphones by this year. However, Conrad, the Apple reseller in question states in its website that the Airpods will only ship in ‘about 7 weeks’. There is a high possibility that the employee has given wrong information, and we suggest you take this piece of news with a pinch of salt.
The Airpods are a new breed of in-ear audio equipments, one that runs on a new wireless technology pioneered by Apple. It is powered by Apple’s W1 chip and can be charged just by putting them in the bundled case.
