Order Now and Get Them Before Christmas

Apple’s Wireless AirPods Will Be Available Before Christmas


Editor’s Note: The AirPods have sold out online until the middle of January. You can still buy them at Apple Stores, Apple Authorized Resellers and select carriers next week. Expect stock to sell out fast.

Back in September, Apple revealed AirPods, a wireless version of the beloved EarPods. But they’ve been delayed well past their original “late October” release date. Now, just weeks before Christmas, Apple announced that the AirPods will be available in Apple Stores and Apple Authorized Resellers next week. The brand is currently taking online orders as well. Online shoppers can expect the AirPods to be delivered December 21–22.

Each pair costs $159 and gives listeners five hours of playtime between charges. It’s the perfect Christmas gift for somebody with an iPhone 7, or someone who’s too attached to their old EarPods.
