AirPods may release in few weeks as reported by Jason Cipriani of ZDNET through an exchange of email between Tim Cook and eager customer. It was learned that customer was dissatisfied with Apple shipment of the wireless earbuds telling “coming soon” instead of telling a specific date.
Tim Cook, Apple CEO, launching of AirPods last September along with iPhone 7 and Apple Watch brought excitement to the audience as Apple updates the new gadgets.
The full exchange from MacRumors is below:
Customer’s comment: “Give us a release date. I really bought in to the wireless vision you painted. Now I’m stuck waiting with my EarPods but can’t charge my 7 at the same time which I need to do at work. Let us know if it’s a month or 6 months, because then I’ll just buy some other wireless headphones.”
Tim Cook’s response: “Thanks for your note. Sorry for the delay—we are finalizing them and I anticipate we will begin to ship over the next few weeks.”
