Apple AirPods now in transit, heading to customers who pre-ordered the wireless earphones
All that is in the past now as those who pre-ordered the AirPods at $159.99 a pop are receiving shipping notifications. Apple promised delivery of the pre-orders by December 21st. Orders placed for the AirPods now from Apple will take six weeks to ship.
The AirPods pair easily with an iPhone, and while they will connect with a non iOS device, the process is not as streamlined. The product is powered by Apple's W1 chip which handles the connection between Apple devices. The AirPods switch seamlessly between the iPhone, iPad and the Apple Watch.
