Apple sells out of wireless AirPods worldwide, won't be delivering until January

Reiterating his expectations that Apple will double AirPods shipments next year to more than 26 million units, the analyst believes Q1 AirPods could beat the usual sales fall compared to holiday seasonality.

Sold out across the United States, Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Spain and the UK, Apple will not be delivering any of the wireless headsets until January, according to the Daily Mail. Kuo noted that the new AirPods will incorporate a "smaller quartz component", but didn't provide any other details on what might be expected in the next-generation wireless earbuds. Until recently, Inventec was the sole manufacturer for AirPods.

MacRumors also reports that Apple will release a new charging case that allows for wireless charging using a new AirPower charging mat.

Apple showed off a new Qi-compatible charging chase for AirPods this September when the iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, and iPhone X were introduced.

That does not sound like the same upgraded AirPods that KGI is talking about, with a second-half 2018 timeframe.

The current generation of AirPods are in short supply and likely won't be back in stock until January, as Apple struggles to keep up with the demand for their incredibly popular earbuds. Last year, Apple delayed the release of the AirPods by a couple of months.

Apple is facing a great problem to have this holiday season.

They were officially supposed to debut in October previous year, but they finally arrived in late December.
