Apple AirPods available for order, to arrive Dec. 21

After many delays, Apple’s AirPods are now available to order and are due to arrive on Wednesday, Dec. 21. 

Announced in September, they were originally slated to begin shipping in late October. AirPods are wireless headphones that allow users to listen to music, make phone calls, enjoy TV shows and movies, play games and interact with Siri. Apple says that advanced sensors know when you are listening and automatically play and pause your music. Using Siri, AirPods allow you to access the “personal assistant” with a double tap. 

The wireless headphones, including a charging case, will cost $159. AirPods require Apple devices running iOS 10.x, watchOS 3.x or macOS Sierra.
