  • How to Find Apple Air Pods in Stock

The analyst does not go into much detail about what exactly will change in the next-generation model, however he notes that they will adopt a smaller quartz component.

The analyst predicts that the upgraded AirPods will come with hardware improvements.

Apple Airpods would be an uphill climb to buy this holiday season, as key sources suggest that most online retailers have sold out their stock. We forecast the ASP of RFPCB for upgraded AirPods in 2H18 may increase, further benefiting business momentum of Unitech and Compeq. The new AirPods will be assembled by Taiwanese manufacturer Inventec, just as with the original product.

Apple has already announced a new AirPower inductive charging case for next year. Resellers may also have AirPods in stock. It can be used to charge the Apple Watch Series 3, iPhone X, iPhone 8, and AirPods simultaneously. The best promise to date is a release "early next year".

AirPods are also now out of stock at most of Apple's retail stores around the world, and at authorized resellers such as Best Buy, Macy's, Target, Walmart, and Verizon in the United States. The fact that a holiday season will pass by without the availability of a major accessory to the new generation of iPhones is an unfortunate effect that will cost Apple the opportunity to make some major sales.

They were officially supposed to debut in October previous year, but they finally arrived in late December. This year, Apple is having trouble keeping its products available after launch. Ordering online directly from Apple shows January 5, 2018, as being the next date that AirPods will be available.
