AirPods coming to Apple stores on Dec. 19

Apple’s long-awaited wireless earphones AirPods are coming to the company’s retail facilities Monday, Dec. 19.

This is according to a rating from MacRumors, which cites a retail source and statements carrier facilities and Apple Authorized Resellers will be getting the AirPods as well.

Originally slated for an October launch, the AirPods were delayed for unspecified reasons. Earlier this week, Apple finally put them on sale on its online store, with a Dec. 22 shipping date. If the MacRumors rating is true, it means folks who visit a physical Apple retail store might get them three days before that date.

The AirPods are small earbuds which look a lot like the standard iPhone earbuds, only without a wire. They feature Apple’s new W1 chip, which makes pairing with other gear quicker and a special case that doubles as a portable battery/charger. Check out our research here.

And while AirPods will be reaching the initial place in time for the holidays, Apple’s other wireless earbuds, the BeatsX, will not be available until February.
