AirPods on-sale NOW! Apple’s wireless buds arrive in time for Xmas (…just)

Apple’s long-delayed AirPods are finally available to order. They were projected to arrive by the end of October after they were announced alongside the iPhone 7 back in September.

But now they’ve arrived. Apple made AirPods available to order online today. Priced at $159 / £159 the completely wireless earbuds will arrive in time for December 25 – if you’re quick. As of writing, the earliest delivery dates are currently projected as December 22 in the US and December 19 in the UK.

AirPods can be ordered directly from via this link.

AirPods connect to iPhone and iPad using a special pairing case, which also charges the headset. In total, the headphones get 24 hours of playback from a full charge. Watch Apple’s introductory video below:
