The AirPods are here! After a couple months of delays, Apple is selling the $159 AirPods. But even though they’re for sale, the AirPods will be scarce for a while—the Apple online store is estimating about a two-week delivery time, but you might be able to track down a pair at an Apple retail store. Maybe call ahead first.
Here's what Apple CEO Tim Cook said about the AirPods during the company's third quarter 2017 financial results call with analysts in August:
We’re also seeing incredible enthusiasm for AirPods, with 98 percent customer satisfaction based on Creative Strategies’ survey. We have increased production capacity for AirPods and are working very hard to get them to customers as quickly as we can, but we are still not able to meet the strong level of demand.
