At the AirPods time of debut alongside the iPhone 7, Apple said the wireless earbuds would launch in October, but failed to hit the mark stating it needed “a little more time.”
At the time, Apple didn’t provide any further information on when Apple fans could expect the new devices, and reports subsequently surfaced that put the launch date in January 2017. A European reseller, however, has just indicated the launch may be much sooner than that.
An employee of Apple reseller Conrad told a customer it would receive stock on November 17th and make them available for purchase November 18th or 19th. The store’s website, however, still indicates a longer wait of seven to eight weeks, but the report does provide some hope that the AirPods will be available for the holiday season.
