Apple’s online store has cut its AirPod shipment estimates to two to three weeks, the first time the estimate dropped below a month since the delayed launch in December.
CEO Tim Cook said during the conference call about the company’s finances call that the company had increased AirPod production capacity to better meet demand. Other retailers have AirPod supplies in stock for quicker shipments, but the stock in Apple’s own store gives a good idea of where the company stands with the supply-demand balance, notes Seeking Alpha.
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, cost $159. AirPods require Apple devices running iOS 10.x, watchOS 3.x or macOS Sierra.
