If you were hoping to get someone a pair of AirPods in time for Christmas, it looks like you’d be be out of luck because according to reports, Apple’s AirPods have been sold out until January 2018 via the official Apple Online Store. This means that you’ll have to go through a third-party retailer to get your hands on it, assuming others haven’t thought about that already.
Now if you thought that maybe you could try your luck at a brick-and-mortar Apple Store, it seems that the reports are also claiming that for the most part, the AirPods have also sold out in most retail stores around the world. You could try your luck or maybe give the stores a call before you go.
MacRumors even points out that even third-party retailers such Best Buy and Macy’s are sold out of the headphones, but for those who absolutely want it, AT&T appears to have some in stock but customers will have to pay an extra $15 for express delivery if they’re hoping to get it in time for Christmas.
It seems that despite initial skepticism about the design and price of the AirPods that they seem to be really well-received. Some are even claiming that the AirPods are dominating the wireless headphone market as a result.
