AirPods are now available for purchase at some physical Apple Stores; pre-ordered units now arriving

AppleInsider recently surveyed a number of physical Apple Stores to see what their inventory situation was for the sought-after earbuds, and the outlook is actually quite a bit more positive than what we were initially anticipating. Ten total stores were surveyed, and out of those ten, eight of them reported that they were expecting to get "a few" units of the AirPods in stock.While that certainly is a bit of a bummer, all hope is not lost if you were hoping to get your hands on a pair of AirPods before Christmas.
Some Apple Stores now have AirPods in stock and available for purchase.
These eight stores reported that they will get at least 10 AirPod units (if not more), and the two other stores that were surveyed are expecting to get "at least 20" packages of AirPods. Those physical Apple Stores got their stock of AirPods delivered to them on Sunday (yesterday), meaning that they are now available for purchase starting today. So, if there's an Apple Store near where you live, it just might be worth heading there to see what their stock situation of AirPods looks like.
In addition to physical Apple Stores now having AirPods available for purchase, numerous customers also took to social media this past Sunday to showcase that their pre-ordered AirPods had either already arrived or shipped out. These lucky few are likely those who were able to pre-order AirPods before Apple rank out of stock shortly after they went on sale, but in any case, it's great to see that at least some customers are finally getting their hands on these wireless earbuds after months of waiting.
While it's certainly worth heading to your local Apple Store to see if they've got any AirPods available for purchase, it's probably going to be a few weeks before the vast majority of interested people can get their hands on a pair of AirPod. We're doing our best to find a pair ourselves so that we can get a full review published as soon as possible, so stay tuned.

Why any new Apple device has a huge media coverage? Answer: Originality.

Because Apple are the most important company in tech? Seems pretty obvious!

You know how crazy you sound....I hope. Then again, you Trump dudes aren't really all that capable at figuring out who is lying to you or not. Side Note: I've noticed that a lot more Android users are Trump supporters than you'd think. I assumed that with how Trump goes about life, Apple users would be all for him (since we're apparently egotistical liars.....allegedly). The dudes clamoring for freedom on their phones are promoting a pseudo-fascist? That's..... odd, in my opinion.

Got mine this morning, and they are awesome. Not perfect, but awesome. Every Bluetooth headphone manufacturer needs an equivalent W1 chip, the pairing process was freakishly easy.

They might be the best wireless earbuds at the moment but ouch. The price. Not really use to in the ear style buds anyways. But the cheap ones I buy off Amazon don't always pair that easy. Sometimes they show paired but don't play music or it's a while for the music comes through. So I would like to see more reviews and headsets with this w1 chip.

"These eight stores reported that they will get at least 10 AirPod units (if not more), and the two other stores that were surveyed are expecting to get "at least 20" packages of AirPods" So thats the way Apple keeps the demand by supplying low. At 10 Apple stores you expect only 120 Airpods?!!
