It seems Apple is always doing controversial things, and this year鈥檚 iPhone iterations were certainly no exception. While many people were excited at the prospect of a more powerful phone with a higher quality camera, etc., a lot of people were pretty ticked off at the lack of a headphone jack (thankfully there are ways around that). Now you have the option to either use earbuds that connect via lightning cable or the newly released AirPods 鈥 which have their own issues (AKA they鈥檙e small and easy to lose, unless you have a strap).

Apple Fans Await iPhone 7

While many people are praising the wireless connection the AirPods provide, many don鈥檛 notice a difference in sound quality compared to the regular EarPods. Which begs the question: Why are they sold out globally? Yep, you read that right. According to Isinstock, there are no Apple stores that currently have the AirPods in stock.

For a product that鈥檚 getting such mixed reviews, that鈥檚 a little surprising. It鈥檚 possible that Apple under-produced because the AirPods are a new concept for the company, and you can bet people would be talking about it if the demand wasn鈥檛 as high as expected. Whatever the reason, you鈥檒l have to wait if you want to get your hands on those tiny little earbuds. No news yet from Apple on when they鈥檒l be available though.

It鈥檚 okay, Apple, we鈥檒l just wait for our phones to be done charging before listening to music.

Have you tried the AirPods? Do you plan on purchasing a pair? Tell us @BritandCo!
