Apple has delayed AirPods launch, says it needs more time
  • AirPods were expected to officially hit the market after Apple’s September 27 MacBook event.

Looks like Apple’s futuristic looking, “truly wireless” AirPods will not hit the market anytime soon. In a statement to TechCrunch, the Cupertino company said that it will need “a little more time” before the AirPods officially go on sale.

A spokesperson from Apple told TC, “The early response to AirPods has been incredible. We don’t believe in shipping a product before it’s ready, and we need a little more time before AirPods are ready for our customers.”
Apple’s AirPods were launched alongside the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus back in September. They were expected to go on sale after the October 27 MacBook event. The wireless earphones are compatible with all Apple devices, and automatically connect to them when they are placed in the user’s ears. The AirPods sport a custom-designed Apple W1 chip, which the company says will help improve connection and offer better sound. Apple also claims that the W1 chip manages the built-in battery well enough so that the earphones can offer 5 hours of usage on a single charge.
