German Reseller Says Apple AirPods Will Launch on November 18-19

AirPods, Apple’s Bluetooth earphones featuring the company’s in-house designed W1 wireless chip, may be launching next week. That’s the gist of a new report Thursday from German blog The publication cited Apple’s European reseller Conrad as confirming that it’ll receive stock of the delayed earphones on November 17.

Since the information was provided by an employee, it is entirely possible that it is incorrect, which usually is the case. However, by launching the AirPods by November 19th, Apple will have them in stores for the crucial holiday season.

Chinese newspaper Economic Daily News alleged that Apple’s first-ever wireless earphones won’t go on sale before January 2017, but now it seems they’ll be coming sooner than later. A customer who talked with an employee of the Conrad Online Store was reportedly informed that the retailer will begin selling the AirPods next week.

The Apple-designed W1 chip also makes possible a five-hour battery life, but the provided charging case extends their run time to up to 24 hours. You charge the case itself through its built-in Lightning port.
