Apple sells out of wireless AirPods worldwide, won't be delivering until January

According to a recent research note by KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, Apple plans on an AirPods 2 launch date sometime in the second half of 2018.

The new model could feature a smaller quartz component from supplier TXC, however, externally Kuo doesn't expect the new model to look much different than the original.

In 2018, we predict AirPods shipments will grow 100% YoY to 26-28mn units. Though it seemed that Apple had finally managed to address and fix early AirPod production issues, it now appears that AirPod orders placed today won't ship until January of 2018.

With history as a guide, the second-generation Apple AirPods are likely to be announced next September, followed by a release before the end of next year.

We noted yesterday that many retailers like Best Buy, Walmart, and B&H are all out of stock when it comes to AirPods inventory. It can be used to charge the Apple Watch Series 3, iPhone X, iPhone 8, and AirPods simultaneously. Ordering online directly from Apple shows January 5, 2018, as being the next date that AirPods will be available.

It may seem as though AirPods have been around for quite some time but they only just arrived previous year.

Of course, AirPods isn't the only Apple product that won't be available for purchase this holiday season.

But if you had your eye on a pair of AirPods this Christmas, don't despair. Apple, like most smartphone manufacturers, generally sticks to a yearly release schedule when it comes to their new flagships.
