Apple’s AirPods are available from the online Apple Store in just three to five business days in the U.S., Canada, U.K., Australia, and several other countries.
According to Apple’s U.S. website, AirPods ordered today will be delivered between Oct. 4 and Oct.6, while U.K. customers ordering today are being quoted delivery dates between October 3 and October 5. As MacRumors notes, these are the best estimates Apple has offered since the AirPods launched in December 2016.
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 (or higher), watchOS 3.x (or higher) or macOS Sierra/High Sierra.
