“The early response to AirPods has been incredible. We don’t believe in shipping a product before it’s ready, and we need a little more time before AirPods are ready for our customers,” an Apple spokesperson told TechCrunch.
Apple didn't reveal whether the issues delaying the release were hardware or software related. Originally, the AirPods were set to ship in late October and many expected them to launch alongside Apple's new Macs tomorrow.
Unfortunately, Apple hasn't provided a new timeline for AirPods' release.
