After Months of Delay, Apple AirPods have Finally Arrived!
Apple unveiled the wireless AirPods along with the launch of the iPhone 7. Repeated delays have been a mocking point for the company especially because of the removal of the 3.5mm jack. If you were wanting to ’em before holidays, you are in luck!
Wireless has become the way of the world for much of the technology in consumers’ hands and homes. Doing away with the cord that links a phone to its earpieces means one less snarl in your pocket. Still, Apple caused quite a stir when it eliminated the standard headphone jack that people had used since forever to connect their headphones.
Update: Buyers hoping for an expensive stocking stuffer are already out of luck, though, since as of this writing, the AirPods’ shipping estimate has already climbed to four weeks.
