Apple Delays AirPod Rollout

Remember when Apple said that its AirPods would be available mid-October? Well, October is almost over and nary an AirPod is to be found. According to TechCrunch, the sure-to-be-lost-immediately wireless headphones have been delayed with no new release date given.

Apple did not say whether hardware or software updates are what is at the heart of the delay so I couldn’t conjecture which. My experiences with the AirPods have been very positive this far but the pre production units that were given out to press are not without their foibles and bugs. I have seen a variety of small software/hardware interaction issues that have caused some frustration آ– but have taken them in stride because they are not final products.
