Apple’s website has now been update to indicate that the AirPods will now ship in 6 weeks in the United States and several other countries around the world. The wireless earbuds were available to purchase on Apple’s website since yesterday, with early orders being delivered on December 19.
Apple originally said that the AirPods will be shipping in limited quantities so it’s not surprising that shipping estimates have slipped this quickly. As of right now, if you place an order for these, it’s likely they won’t be arriving until 2017.
However, those who missed the boat still have a small chance. As Apple has stated that AirPods will be available to purchase at Apple Stores, authorized resellers, and select carriers starting next week. Apple says that it will receive “regular AirPods shipments.”
